The Ryzen 3000U versions of the MagicBook 14 and MagicBook 15 may have only recently arrived in Europe, but Honor has just announced their successors in China. Still called the MagicBook 14 and MagicBook 15, the two devices have been launched with two processor options, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. The lesser of the two processors is the Ryzen 5 4500U, a 6 core APU, while the superior one is the Ryzen 7 4700U. Neither supports Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT), but they are both based on AMD's 7 nm process node and are 15 W chips.
The pre-sale for both laptops has already begun, with Honor offering CNY 200 (~US$29) off the MagicBook 14. There does not appear to be any pre-sale offerings on the MagicBook 15, but both will be available on general sale from July 22. The SKUs will be sold through retailers like JD.com and will cost as follows:
- Ryzen 5 4500U, 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB of storage - CNY 3,999 (~US$572)
- Ryzen 7 4700U, 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB of storage - CNY 4,499 (~US$644)
- Ryzen 5 4500U, 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB of storage - CNY 4,199 (~US$601)
- Ryzen 7 4700U, 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB of storage - CNY 4,699 (~US$672)
The design of the two laptops appears to be unchanged from the current models. Both have 1080p panels with 16:9 aspect ratios and offer the same volume of ports as their predecessors. Honor has not yet confirmed if it will be releasing the MagicBook 14 and MagicBook 15 outside of China, but we imagine it will do so later this year.
