Honor is going all-in with AMD and their latest updated laptops at IFA 2020.
Honor MagicBook 14 & 15 – Same as the current models but with upgraded Honor MagicBook 14 & 15
They have updated the two existing MagicBook 14 & 15 models from the AMD Ryzen 3500U to the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U. In my press release, they make no mention of another CPU options, whereas the previous generation had the choice of the Ryzen 3500U or 3700U.
The display and overall physical dimensions all remain identical to the Honor MagicBook 14 & 15
