The world of swanky and smart gadgets is witnessing a new promising entry. HONOR, which has received rave reviews in the smartphone category, has launched its first laptop—HONOR MagicBook 15 in India.
Designed for young professionals and students who seek superior features and functionality at an affordable price point, it’s a laptop that challenges the status quo.
The HONOR MagicBook 15 is India’s first laptop with three breakthrough innovations under the INR 50K price bracket. Featuring a pop-up webcam, a 2-in-1 fingerprint power button and 65W type-C compact multi-device fast charging, the HONOR MagicBook 15 is a force to reckon with.
With an impressive all-day battery life, HONOR MagicBook 15 promises to help your productivity soar. The 65W fast charger further ensures that your laptop gets charged up to 53% in just half an hour.
Typing passwords could also become a thing of the past with the built-in fingerprint scanner, which helps securely unlock your HONOR MagicBook with just a tap.
Now, why the pop-up camera? HONOR has gone a step ahead to ensure user privacy and security. The webcam is discreetly hidden in HONOR MagicBook 15’s full-sized keyboard, to be used only when you want to.
Beveled with Azure Blue Chamfer around the sides, the Mystic Silver Magicbook 15 is modern, contemporary, and chic. The 39.6 cm (15.6 inches) full-view display, with an 87% screen-to-body ratio, makes for an immersive viewing experience. A Full HD IPS display, 1920×1080 FHD with a viewing angle of 178 degrees and a 16:9 aspect ratio, adds to the appeal.
That’s not all. With people spending more and more time in front of screens, eye protection becomes an important element. HONOR MagicBook 15 features an anti-glare glossy display with TUV-certified ‘eye comfort mode’. This helps minimize eye strain for adults as well as young users.
HONOR MagicBook 15 has also been designed for enhanced portability. It weighs just about 1.53 kg, is only 16.9 mm thick at its thickest point, and has a 5.3 mm ultra-thin top and side bezels.
Surprisingly, even though the device is so sleek, it features multiple ports for all your needs – USB 2.0, USB 3.0, Type C, HDMI and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The MagicBook 15 doesn’t let its size compromise with its performance. Powered by an AMD Ryzen™ 5 3500U processor, an 8GB DDR4 dual-channel and a RadeonTM Vega 8 Graphics card, the device is designed for fast and fluid performance.
The device also features the latest 256GB PCle SSD for faster read and write speed. With PCIe, read speed is five times faster than that of SATA. Just to give you an idea, copying files will be 80% faster, while opening PPTs and decompressing files will be 31% and 29% faster, respectively. Thanks to Netflix, Amazon Prime and other OTT platforms, you don’t need to download big size movies. For those desiring even larger storage, a portable hard drive can easily be used with HONOR MagicBook 15.
Heating issues have forever plagued several high-performing laptops. HONOR MagicBook 15 features an innovative Shark fin 2.0 fan design for effective heat dissipation. This S-shaped fan, which has 49% more number of blades, ensures a 38% increase in airflow. The result is that allows users can work for prolonged hours without the device getting heated up.
HONOR MagicBook 15 also comes pre-installed with the licensed version of Microsoft Windows 10 Home and a free one-month trial of the Microsoft 365 personal subscription, so that you can start creating right off the hook!
With the young populace working on multiple platforms on multiple devices, HONOR makes cross-collaboration a lot easier. With HONOR Magic-link 2.0, you can cross-collaborate between an HONOR smartphone and HONOR MagicBook 15 with a simple tap. Magic-link lets you share your smartphone screen and files on HONOR MagicBook, thereby allowing super convenient accessing and editing with keyboard and mouse.
Note that this feature is only supported on HONOR MagicBook 15 Series with PC Manager Version 10.0.2.99 or above that have installed related drivers provided by PC Manager. This feature is also compatible only on select NFC-enabled HUAWEI phones running on EMUI 10 or above, or HONOR phones running on EMUI 10 or Magic UI 3.0 or above
