Honor has hinted of a renewed partnership with Intel for its first gaming laptop, the Hunter. The company has released several AMD Ryzen 4000 Renoir machines this year, but it has seemingly looked to Intel to supply 14 nm processors for its foray into the gaming laptop market.
Alex Alderson,

Huawei and Honor may not have partnered with AMD for their first gaming laptop. Honor had seemingly hinted that it would be using Renoir processors in its Hunter-branded gaming laptop, but now it has published a teaser to the contrary. Instead, the photo above suggests that the company has chosen Intel processors for the upcoming machine.

If that is the case, then we would expect Honor to go with processors from Intel's Comet Lake-H series. Honor generally releases two or three SKUs per laptop that it distinguishes by processors. Speculatively, we would expect Honor to offer the Hunter with just the Core i5-10300H and Core i7-10750H, along with 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB or 1 TB SSD.

Another teaser showing an illuminated Hunter logo implies that Honor has teamed up with Team Blue this time around. NVIDIA GPUs will likely round off the internal hardware for the Hunter. Here, we would Honor to offer at least the GTX 1650 Ti or GTX 1660 Ti, along with possibly an RTX 2060 model.

We would not rule out the release of an AMD model at some stage, though. Honor released Intel and AMD versions of the MagicBook Pro for instance, so the company may schedule a separate release for an AMD Hunter gaming laptop later this year.

Someone on the HiHonor Community forums claims to have shared a first photo of the Hunter gaming laptop too. We have included it below for posterity, but its similarity to the keyboard of the HP Gaming Pavilion 15 makes us question its authenticity.
