HONOR Hunter gaming laptop design sketches leaked
HONOR has revealed their intention to unveil a gaming laptop for quite some time, although they decided to not launch it together with their AMD Ryzen 4000-packing HONOR MagicBooks. Well, perhaps because it won’t be a MagicBook. It might be released under the HONOR Hunter lineup. The name debuted with the Hunter Gaming Router that looks like a compact PC with aggressive vents, and it seems like the HONOR Hunter laptop will sport a similar design language.
The laptop might be dubbed the HONOR Hunter FRD, as these leaked design sketches imply. HONOR seem to have drawn inspiration from sports car designs, which is a pretty common theme in the gaming laptop industry. Both MSI and GIGABYTE have served up laptops with performance car-esque designs, which is a no-brainer as those cars are designed to look sleek while also having plenty of vents for aerodynamics and cooling.
On top of the leaked sketches, the leaker who goes by Ant Song on Weibo also shared the CCC certification for the Hunter FRD, which reveals a 200W power adapter. Such a powerful power adapter should mean that HONOR intends to pack relatively heavyweight hardware into the laptop, probably along the lines of a AMD Ryzen 7 4800H and a GeForce RTX 2060. HONOR has a working relationship with both Intel and AMD, so there’s no saying which camp will they decide to work with for their first gaming laptop.
What do you think? I think the laptop does look pretty unique from the sketches, but we will definitely have to see the final product to be able to give it a proper judgement.
Pokdepinion: Looks a bit too thin to be packing an Intel CPU… Unless HONOR has some hidden cooling tricks up their sleeves.
