The only thing that has changed in the Honor MagicBook2019 is a processor. If previously Intel Core i5-8250U or Core i7-8550U were used, now they have been replaced by AMD Ryzen 5 3500U and Ryzen 7 3700U with Radeon Vega 8 and Vega 10 GPUs, respectively. The amount of RAM is still 8 GB, but the capacity of the SSD drive has increased - by 256 and 512 GB.

In addition, Magic-link 2.0 technology is supported for convenient transfer of photos, videos, documents and other files from a smartphone to a laptop.


Version with Ryzen 5 processor and Vega 8 graphicswill go on sale in China tomorrow. Its cost ranges from 529 to 569 euros, depending on the amount of memory. The version with Ryzer 7 will have to wait until the end of May.
