Honor MagicBook 15
The new Honor MagicBook 15 appears to be a refresh of last year’s MagicBook series but now it is now offered in Malaysia with a larger 15″ IPS screen. It still pushes Full HD+ resolution and the panel now offers a 100% sRGB high gamut display.
Unlike the UK version which runs on an AMD Ryzen 4000 series, the new MagicBook 15 in Malaysia is powered by Intel’s 11th gen Core i5-1135G7 processor with Iris Xe Graphics. The RM3,699 laptop comes with 16GB of DDR4 3200MHz RAM and 512GB of PCEe NVMe SSD storage.
Just like its predecessor, the MagicBook 15 also features a pop-up 1MP webcam that’s hidden between the first row keys on the keyboard and it also gets a power button with integrated fingerprint sensor for instant unlocking.
In terms of connectivity, it supports 802.11ax WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.1 and Magic Link 2.0 for multi-screen collaboration. The laptop also comes with two USB-A ports (USB 3.2 + USB 2.0), a HDMI port, a USB-C port that supports 65W fast charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
It comes with a 42Wh battery and you can get 46% charge in just 30 minutes with the provided 65W USB-PD charger. Out of the box, it runs on Microsoft Windows 10 Home. Overall it weighs 1.56kg and has a thickness of 16.9mm.
Honor Band 6
The Honor Band 6 is essentially a fitness band that tries to be a smartwatch. Upfront, it gets a 1.47″ (194×368) AMOLED display and it boasts up to 14 days of battery life on a single charge. It also features a built-in heart rate sensor with blood oxygen monitoring.
The fitness band offers automatic sports detection for 10 different activities and it has 5ATM water resistance, which allows you to submerge the band up to 50 metres deep. The watch face is customisable and it can also display notifications from your paired smartphone.
The 180mAh battery is rated to last up to 14 days in normal mode which also includes 24/7 heart rate monitoring. It charges via a magnetic clip and a quick 10-minute charge is claimed to provide enough juice for 3 days. Apart from fitness tracking, the Honor Band 6 also has a built-in sleep monitor and a female cycle tracker feature.
