Honor, formerly owned by Huawei Technologies, has refreshed its MagicBook Pro laptop with an Intel-based processor. The new product comes as part of the CES 2021 announcements where Honor has unleashed all the details regarding this laptop.
The new MagicBook Pro 2021 is powered by a 10th-gen Intel Core i5-10210U and coupled with NVIDIA GeForce MX350 graphics. Previously, Honor brought the Core i7 version back in May 2020.
This year's MagicBook Pro features a 16.1-inch display with a 1080p resolution. According to Honor, the display has a screen-to-body ratio of 90%. It includes 512GB NVMe SSD storage and has 16GB RAM, along with one USB Type-C port, three USB Type-A ports, one HDMI port, and a fingerprint reader on its power button.
The refreshed MagicBook Pro 2021 has a 56Wh battery capacity that is touted to deliver 11.5 hours of video playback on a single charge. The laptop supports 65W fast-charging capability as well.
Together with this, Honor also introduced Band 6, its latest fitness tracker. The Honor Band 6 features a 1.47-inch AMOLED touchscreen display and it is available in three color options – Meteorite Black, Sandstone Grey, and Coral Pink. The Band 6 also monitors heart rate and blood oxygen and gives you reports on the same via an app. The fitness tracker also does stress monitoring and female cycle tracking.
The Honor Band 6 is also 5ATM rated, which means it can withstand splashes, shower, and is suitable for swimming. Also, it has a battery life of up to 14 days. It includes 10 workout modes, plus automatic workout detection for six types of workouts.
The exact price details of the two products are unknown. But expect the MagicBook Pro to cost around $1000 and Band 6 around $35.
