The Honor MagicBook Pro 2020 refresh is here. It has a 16.1” screen with 90% screen-to-body ratio just as before, but it is now powered by a 10th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors.
The bezels around the screen are just 4.9mm, the screen itself is a 1080p panel with 100% sRGB coverage. There is a 1MP web cam hiding in the keyboard and it uses dual microphones for video calls. The speakers surrounding the keyboard are also home to a fingerprint reader.
The base version comes with a Core i5-10210U, but you can upgrade to a Core i7-10510U. In both cases there is 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512GB SSD with Windows 10 Home pre-installed. In addition to the Intel graphics, there is an external Nvidia MX350 GPU with 2GB of DDR5 video RAM. A custom dual fan solution keeps everything cool.
Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 5 (ac) with 2×2 MIMO and Bluetooth 5.0. The wired connections options are one USB-C port, three USB-A 3.0, an HDMI port, as well as a 3.5mm headphones + microphone combo jack.
The laptop is powered by a 56Wh battery, which can last up to 14 hours of light use or 11.5h of video playback. The chassis is built out of aluminum alloy and the whole thing weights just 1.7kg and is 16.9mm thick.
The Honor MagicBook Pro 2020 will be available in China starting on May 19. The i5 version will start at CNY 6,000 ($845/€780), the upgrade to an i7 is CNY 700 on top of that. The exterior is painted in “Glacial Silver”. You can find the laptop on Vmall right now.
Honor also unveiled the Vision X65 TV – a 65” TV with 90% coverage of the P3 color space and with motion compensation. It has four 10W speakers as well as a microphone, allowing it to become a control hub for smart home gadgets (via voice commands).
The X65 goes on pre-order later today and will carry a price tag of CNY 3,300, but those who order before the 25th (when the TV goes on sale) will get a CNY 300 discount. You will find it on Vmall, JD, Tmall and other retailers.
