Honor MagicBook Pro 2020: Retailer confirms up to 10th generation Intel Core i7 processors and NVIDIA GeForce MX350 GPU for MacBook Pro 16 lookalike; no Ryzen 4000 Renoir series options at launch
A Chinese retailer has seemingly confirmed the specifications of the next Honor MagicBook Pro. Teased as part of an Honor Life announcement on May 18, JD.com declares that the device will be called the MagicBook Pro 2020.
According to the listing, the MagicBook Pro 2020 will retain the 16.1-inch display of its predecessor. Claimed to cover 100% of the sRGB colour space, the 1080p touchscreen has a 90% screen-to-body ratio and 4.9 mm bezels on three sides of its display.
The SKUs listed on JD.com suggest that Honor has slimmed down the RAM and storage configurations that it will offer with the new MagicBook Pro. Whereas Honor sold the 2019 edition with 8 GB of RAM, all 2020 models will only come with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD storage.
JD.com is rather vague on the processors that Honor will include in the MagicBook Pro 2020, though. On the one hand, it offers the MagicBook Pro 2020 with 10th generation Core i5 or Core i7 processors. However, it does not state whether these are Comet Lake or Ice Lake processors. JD.com has confirmed that the MagicBook Pro 2020 will come with an NVIDIA GeForce MX350 as standard. t
While there has been an indication that Honor would release at least an AMD Ryzen 7 4800H model, JD.com makes no mention of this in its product listing. However, Honor announced Ryzen versions of the 2019 model a few months after it launched Intel SKUs, so we would not rule out Renoir versions of the MagicBook Pro 2020 quite yet.
