HONOR has launched a trio of new products for Malaysia in the form of the new HONOR 70 smartphone, the workhorse HONOR MagicBook 14 laptop and the HONOR Pad 8 tablet. Unveiled at a grand evening launch, all three devices are slated to hit Malaysia with a street date of 27th August 2022 though the HONOR 70 has a special preorder programme. Here’s how they all stack up…
HONOR 70 specifications and price
The HONOR 70 is their latest smartphone running Android 12 with full access to the Google app store. It packs a 6.67-inch curved OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 2,400 x 1080 (FHD+) pixel resolution, a Snapdragon 778G processor with a 5G modem, 8GB RAM and 256GB of non-expandable storage.
The rear features a 54MP F/1.9 camera using the latest Sony IMX800 sensor, a 50MP F/2.2 ultra wide angle camera and a 2MP depth sensor while selfies are tackled by a front-mounted 32MP selfie camera. Powering the phone is a 4,800mAh battery with 66W HONOR SuperCharge support that allows it to charge from zero to 60% in just 20 minutes.
HONOR MagicBook 14 laptop specifications and price
The HONOR MagicBook 14 laptop is an interesting beast indeed as it’s one of the first laptops to have an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 GPU though a more affordable variant is available that has Iris Xe integrated graphics.
The rest of the hardware is rather respectable with a 14-inch 2.1K FullView non-touch display with 100% sRGB and 88.15% screen-to-body ratio, a 12th Gen Intel Core i5-12500H processor with Windows 11 Home, 16GB RAM, a 512GB SSD, WiFi 6 connectivity and stereo speakers tuned by Nahimic. Keeping the lights on is a 75Wh battery with 100W HONOR SuperCharge charging. It also has a free copy of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2021 preinstalled.
HONOR Pad 8 tablet specifications and price
The HONOR Pad 8 comes with a 12-inch 2K FullView display (2,000 x 1,200 pixels) with an 87% screen-to-body ratio and TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light and Flicker Free certification as well as a 60Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, it packs a midrange Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor with 6GB RAM with 2GB of virtual RAM and 128GB of storage.
Of note is that it runs Android S with full support for the Google app store and the tablet is overlaid with their Magic UI 6.1 user interface. Both the front and rear each comes with a 5MP camera for video calls and the odd photo or two. Keeping it powered is a 7,250mAh battery with 22.5W HONOR Supercharge support.
