HONOR launched the HONOR 9X Pro, HONOR MagicBook and HONOR MagicWatch 2 Sakura Gold today!
HONOR has just launched their new lineup of Intelligent Lifestyle products here in Malaysia, featuring the HONOR 9X Pro, HONOR MagicBook and HONOR MagicWatch 2 (42mm) in Sakura Gold. The three products are a part of HONOR’s Intelligent Lifestyle ecosystem, which is expected to be fleshed out with even more IoT products to create a smart connected experience for all.
HONOR 9X Pro: RM999
The HONOR 9X Pro has been a long time coming. The first time we set our eyes on it was late February, where it impressed us with its specifications and design. However due to the Restricted Movement Order (RMO), the launch has been delayed until today. Priced at RM999, the HONOR 9X Pro is currently the most powerful mid-range device we have seen. It comes with HUAWEI AppGallery in place of Google Mobile Services too, marking HONOR’s first smartphone to use the world’s 3rd top app store.
HONOR 9X Pro Specs
- Kirin 810, octa-core @ 2.27 GHz, 7nm FinFET
- 6GB LPDDR4X
- 256GB UFS 2.1 storage (support microSD up to 512GB)
- 6.59″ FHD+ IPS LCD display, HONOR FullView Display
- 48MP f/1.8 + 8MP f/2.4 ultra-wide + 2MP depth sensor
- 16MP f/2.2 selfie camera, popup camera
- 4000 mAh battery
Availability for the HONOR 9X Pro will be a little later than the rest of the products announced today, with it going on sale after the RMO is over on 17th April at HONOR Experience Stores (HES) nationwide. Early birds will get a free HONOR Band 5i worth RM119.
HONOR MagicBook: RM2299
Another first for HONOR Malaysia today is the announcement of their first notebook offered here in Malaysia, the HONOR MagicBook. The HONOR MagicBook’s main selling point is its battery life: in its svelte 1.45 kg body lies a massive 57.4 WHr battery that promises up to 10 hours of battery life. It isn’t lacking in terms of performance either, with an AMD Ryzen 5 3500U, 8GB RAM and 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD storage. Priced at RM2299, it offers a pretty compelling package for people who need to be on the go a lot and can’t be bogged down by heavy laptops and bulky chargers.
HONOR MagicBook Specs
- AMD Ryzen 5 3500U, 4C/8T up to 3.7 GHz, 12nm
- 8GB DDR4-2400 RAM (soldered)
- 512GB M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD
- 14″ IPS LCD display, HONOR FullView Display
- 57.4 WHr battery, 65W fast charging (Type-C)
- 32.3 x 22 x 1.58 cm
- 1.45 kg
The HONOR MagicBook will be available in Malaysia starting 12am 8th April, with amazing freebies worth up to RM1017 for early birds. That includes an HONOR MagicWatch 2 (46mm), an HONOR BagPack and an HONOR Bluetooth Mouse. That’s some amazing bang for buck, but of course, it is only applicable while stocks last. You can get the HONOR MagicBook from HiHONOR, Shopee, Senheng and SenQ.
HONOR MagicWatch 2 Sakura Gold: RM799
The HONOR MagicWatch 2 (42mm) Sakura Gold was also announced today, with a design that’s more suitable for the ladies. It features a Milanese wristband and the soft Sakura Gold color for that touch of elegance. On the insides, it shares most of the specifications of the HONOR MagicWatch 2 which we reviewed, with the exception of a smaller battery and a smaller screen. With that said, HONOR claims it is still capable of deliver 7 days of battery life, no sweat. The HONOR MagicWatch 2 Sakura Gold will be available for RM799 with a free HONOR Sport Pro worth RM299 from 12am tomorrow on both HiHONOR and Shopee.
Pokdepinion: The HONOR MagicBook sure looks like an interesting laptop for road warriors.
