Honor has just debuted the MagicBook V 14 2022 laptop in accordance with its Autumn Product Event teasers directed at its native Chinese market. However, it has landed alongside much less expected new MagicBook X-series PCs. They pack the same Alder Lake platforms that drives a 2.2K display in the new 14 2022 model.

Honor had confirmed that it would launch a PC called the MagicBook V 14 2022 during its major Autumn Event of today (September 15, 2022), and has certainly delivered on that and more besides. The new V 14 is a take on the 14 2022 form-factor with a 2.5K 90Hz 10-point touch display but without the option of RTX 2050 graphics.

In fact, the only dedicated card on offer is found on the V 14 2022's Independent Graphics Edition, which has a GeForce MX550 augment for the Iris Xe graphics found with the laptop's Core i5-12500H or i7-12700H options.

The i5-12500H-only standard MagicBook V 14 2022 starts at 5,999 yuan (~US$858), whereas the Independent Graphics Edition does so for 6,499 yuan (~US$929). For those who would prefer less glare with their newest laptop screen, there are the MagicBooks X 14 and 16 2022 that have also been sprung on the Honor event's audience.

They come in a "new thin and light metal body" with 16:10 aspect ratios and a lesser-spotted 2.2K (or 2250x1400) resolution for the 14-inch model. Then again, the X 16 2022 has turned out with a more ordinary FHD panel that has not, however unfortunately, been unveiled as boasting a refresh rate boosted to even 90Hz.

This is also true of the X 14 2022, although both new X-series variants come packed with "care for eye health" thanks to the required TUV Rheinland certifications. Both laptops have 60Wh batteries and 65W charging.

The  MagicBooks X 14 and 16 2022 are powered by the i5-12500H or i5-1235U processors, and start at 4,699 yuan (~US$672) from now. Finally, Honor has also debuted the X8 tablet in China today, starting at 1,299 yuan (~US$185) for a 6GB RAM/128GB base model.

All of Honor's latest PCs are now available to pre-order from its online webstore for its home market.
