Honor Hunter V700 gaming laptop launches with a sub-20 mm thick case, an innovative cooling design and powerful components
Honor has unveiled its, and Huawei's, first gaming laptop, the Hunter V700. The laptop has only been released in China for the time being where it is available to order on Vmall. Pre-orders for the device start today from CNY 7,499 (~US$1,105), so the Hunter V700 does not come cheap.
The Hunter V700 has a 16.1-inch display yet measures 369.7 x 253 x 19.99 mm, making its footprint more comparable to that of traditional laptops. The display also has 4.7 mm thick side bezels and covers 100% of the sRGB colour space. The 1080p panel maxes out at 300 nits and has a contrast ratio of 1,000:1.
Despite its thickness, Honor has included USB Type-A ports, an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port and a full-sized HDMI connection among other ports. Honor has also included a take on ASUS' ErgoLift hinge that it has called a Wind Valley design. According to Honor, the hinge reveals an air intake vent of 8.5 mm when opened, increasing the air intake volume of the V700 by up to 40%.
All models come with a 144 Hz display, Intel processors and NVIDIA GPUs. The Hunter V700 starts at CNY 7,499 (~US$1,105) for the Core i5-10300H model, which has a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. Moving up to the Core i7-10750H with an RTX 2060, along with the same volume of RAM and storage, costs CNY 8,499 (~US$1,253). Oddly, Honor is charging CNY 9,999 (~US$1,474) for an SKU with a Core i7-10750H, RTX 2060, 16 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD.
