In addition to the flagship Honor 10 smartphone, Honor is today also taking the wraps off its first ultrabook. Called the “Magicbook”, it’s a traditional laptop with a 14-inch screen and a lightweight design that weighs only 1.47kg.
The Honor MagicBook, as the name suggests, borrows most of its design inspirations from Apple’s MacBook lineup. There’s a full-size backlit keyboard which has a travel of 1.3mm and is flanked by speaker grills. It’s powered by Intel’s 8th-generation Core i7 and i5 chipsets and even has an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 2GB graphics card.
Honor says it has made a slew of optimizations including a larger fan for preventing the slim computer from overheating. It can last more than ten hours on a single charge. It’s compatible with Dolby Atmos sound system as well. It comes with the latest Windows 10 update and even has a software feature called “Magic-Link” which can automatically lock or unlock the computer depending on your phone’s location.
MagicBook’s power key also houses a fingerprint sensor. It features a standard USB Type-A and a Type-C port as well. However, for charging, you will have to employ a proprietary cable. The Honor MagicBook is priced at 4,999 Yuan (~Rs 53,000) for the i5 variant and 5,699 Yuan (~Rs 60,000) for i7. It will be available for pre-order starting from this month’s 19th and will go on sale from the 23rd. The first batch of customers will be also eligible for a discount of 200 Yuan.
