The Honor MagicBook 15 notebook arrives in Hungary as well: the device, which was officially unveiled in China last November, will be available in Hungary from May 20. It is now particularly important for the company to be able to gain a foothold in our region in other product categories in addition to smartphones, as not only the sanctions imposed by Huaweire in the United States but also the global coronavirus epidemic make it more difficult in the market.
from the name of the MagicBook 15, which is also available in Hungary, it comes with a presumably 15.6-inch display with Full HD resolution, and the matte panel also comes with blue light filtering capabilities – all with extremely thin 5.3mm coffees. As we have already seen on the parent company's Huawei devices, among other things, the manufacturer achieved by clipping the webcam, hiding it under an openable button in the row of function keys, between F6 and F7, instead of the top edge of the panel. The latter not only saves space, but also has a safety advantage as it physically obscures the sensor when not in use.
An AMD Ryzen 5 3500U APU is housed in the metal enclosure, which is built into the device with a power button. The chip, announced last year, features four Zen + cores with 2.2 GHz base and 3.8 GHz peak peaks, and Radeon RX Vega graphics running at 8 CUs at 1,200 megahertz. It is paired with 8 gigabytes of dual-channel DDR4 RAM along with a 256 gigabyte NVMe SSD. There is an HDMI socket at the edges and two standard USB ports, one with USB 3.0 and the other with USB 2.0 support.
The MagicBook 15 has a 42W battery that promises roughly 8 hours of operation and is fully discharged in half an hour 53 percent with the included 65-watt USB-C charger. The device is 16.9 millimeters thin and weighs 1.53 kilograms. The MagicBook 15 will be available with Windows 10, in gray, “Space Gray” design, offered by eMAG and Extreme Digital, and the recommended retail price in Hungary will be quite friendly, gross HUF 219 thousand.
