Honor held a press conference in China at the end of the morning to present its latest news. In the lot is a Magicbook and therefore the very first ultraportable of the Chinese brand.
Honor therefore organized an event at the Shanghai Sports Center to showcase its latest innovations to the media invited to the venue. If the company has spent a long time on the Honor 10, it also took the opportunity to introduce the very first ultrabook in its history.
The Magicbook is entitled to neat finishes and thus inherits an aluminum chassis whose thinnest part does not exceed 9.6 mm, for a total weight of 1.47 kg.
Honor enters the ultrabook market
Honor also had the good taste to be very generous in terms of connectivity and the machine thus inherits a headphone jack and several USB ports distributed over its two slices. The computer will also be available in three colors and it will be possible to find it in light gray, dark gray or purple.
The screen is large, but this has no impact on the overall size of the machine. The builder has in fact reduced the thickness of the borders surrounding the slab in order to keep the dimensions contained.
The hinge, for its part, will be reinforced and the user will be able to open the screen to 180 ° without any fear.
Honor has also equipped the MagicBook with a backlit keyboard and several shortcuts to enable or disable certain services. The computer is also equipped with four speakers compatible with the Dolby Sound System and a dual MIMO antenna.
Two models to choose from
In parallel, the machine also embeds a function called MagicLink. Once the computer and the phone are paired, it will be possible to automatically recover the photos taken with the phone on the ultrabook to be sure not to lose them.
The technical sheet depends on the model chosen. The most expensive version is equipped with a 14-inch Full HD screen and an Intel Core i7-8550U coupled with a 2 GB GeForce MX150 and 8 GB of RAM with a storage space of 256 GB and a battery. 57 Wh offering 12 hours of video playback or browsing autonomy, for a price set at $ 900.
Below, we will also find another variant equipped this time with an Intel Core i5 coupled with 8 GB of RAM and with the same storage space for a price of $ 800.
