Honor has launched its latest Windows notebook named MagicBook Pro. It was unveiled at the same event where we saw Honor 9X and Honor 9X Pro getting official. The latest offering is a successor to the original Honor MagicBook from the last year and, as one would expect, brings a number of significant upgrades.
The Honor MagicBook Pro sports a 16.1-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) LCD display with 16:9 aspect ratio. All the four bezels on the notebook are almost negligible (4.9mm thickness) which help it achieve an impressive 90% screen-to-body ratio. Under the hood, it will come with an 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8265U or Intel Core i7-8565U processor with a claimed 40% performance improvement.
The notebook has Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics as well as discrete 2GB NVIDIA GeForce MX250 DDR5 GPU. It offers 8GB and 16GB RAM options along with 512GB, and 1TB PCIe SSD storage options. In terms of connectivity options, it comes with three USB 3.0 (Type-A) ports, one USB Type-C port, and one HDMI port. It also has an HD webcam, a 3.5mm headphone jack, dual digital microphones, WiFi 802.11ac, and Bluetooth 5.0.
The whole package is powered by a 57Wh battery claimed to last for up to 14 hours on local video playback. It boasts seven in-built sensors meant to keep the fuselage temperature under control. It is already available for preorders with sales starting July 29th in China.
