The Honor MagicBook 15 marks the entry of the Chinese smartphone brand's foray into the laptop segment in India. Honor MagicBook 15 is powered by AMD Ryzen 5 3500U processor.
Honor has launched the MagicBook 15 today, making it the first laptop from the brand to launch India. While Honor’s parent brand Huawei has been making laptops for some time, the company has refrained from bringing that portfolio to India. However, we get the Honor laptops, which are a very close alternative.
The Honor MagicBook 15 being launched in ndia comes in a single variant. Users who are keen on getting the laptop will get a machine that’s powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 3500U processor and Vega 8 graphics. The machine also packs 8GB of memory and a 256GB NVMe drive. The 15-inch display is a full HD IPS panel, so buyers can expect good viewing angles. The laptop also comes with a compact 65W charger that pushes 65W of power. In terms of security, users get a fingerprint scanner embedded into the power button. While the Honor MagicBook 15 does sport a webcam, it is embedded under one of the keys and hence, doesn’t come with IR hardware to support Windows Hello. The Honor MagicBook 15 also supports Magic Link 2.0, which allows transferring of files and content between Honor phones and the laptop.
