The Honor Magicbook Sharp Dragon Ryzen Edition has been introduced by Honor, which is Huawei’s sub-brand. The Sharp Dragon Ryzen Edition is a watered-down version of the company’s first flagship laptop. The laptop is already available for Pre-order on JD.com, even though the price wasn’t displayed on the website.
With the AMD processor underneath, the Sharp Dragon Ryzen Edition will definitely be less expensive than the flagship laptops, which are powered by Intel Core i5/i7. Talking about an AMD processor, the AMD R5 2500U, to be specific dominates here. It’s built on a 14nm technology and has a Quad-core + Octa-thread cores. The processors typically reach a clock speed of 2.0GHz, and sometimes reaches a peak speed of 3.6GHz.
Specs-wise, it’s equipped with Radeon Vega 8, with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. Every other thing on the Honor Magicbook Sharp Dragon Ryzen Edition is pretty similar to the first edition. The screen dishes out an impressive 81% screen-to-body ratio with super minimal side bezels. Overall, the sleek Metal body is quite modern and classy, being able to open up to 180 degrees.
For fast typing, it comes with a full-size QWERTY keyboard. Turning over to the sides, you’ll see it’s very slim and weighs less for a laptop, it measures 15.8mm thick and weighs 147g overall. The flagship was made available in Glacier Silver, Starry Ash and Nebula Purple colours. But the Honor Magicbook Sharp Dragon Ryzen Edition will be available in Glacier Silver only.
Other features include four speakers with support for Dolby Sound System, a built-in 2 x 2 MIMO dual-antenna Wi-Fi. It’s powered by a 57Wh battery which Honor claims will allow 12 hours of the standard 1080p video playback, 12 hours of web browsing, and 13 hours of document processing. Since the price is a bit blurry at the moment, let’s just say it’s on a reservation mode on JD.com. The first flash sale of the laptop should go live on June 6 and a second one on June 8.
