Announced alongside the ViewPad 6 and multiple smart devices, the MagicBook Pro 2020 is a slight refresh of last year's MagicBook Pro. Retaining the 16.1-inch display of its predecessor, the MagicBook Pro 2020 has a 1080p touchscreen that Honor promises covers 100% of the sRGB colour space. The new MagicBook Pro has a 90% screen-to-body ratio and 4.9 mm bezels on three sides of its display too, just as its predecessor does.
Announced by JD.com ahead of schedule, Honor has confirmed that the MagicBook Pro 2020 will be available with either a Core i5-10210U or a Core i7-10510U processor. Both versions will come with 16 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM and a 512 GB SSD.
The lack of AMD Ryzen 4000 series processors at launch is a shame. Honor took a few months to release Ryzen 3000H models though, so we would not rule out the company repeating that tactic this year.
Also onboard is an NVIDIA GeForce MX350 GPU, which features 2 GB of VRAM. The MagicBook Pro 2020 has a 56 Wh battery too that Honor promises can last up to 11:30 hours of "local video playback". Hence, expect the laptop to need recharging much sooner than that with general use.
Vmall is currently selling the Core i5 model for CNY 5,559 (~US$782), although the SKU will retail for CNY 5,999 (~US$843.88). Meanwhile, the Core i7 model will set you back CNY 6,699 (~US$942.35).
The MagicBook Pro 2020 is available to order in China from today and in Russia from September 2020. There is no word on availability or pricing elsewhere, though.
