Honor, a sub-brand owned by Huawei Technologies, on Wednesday announced its first gaming laptop, the Hunter V700 at the Honor Smart Life conference held in Beijing, China.
The Hunter V700 is powered by 10th-generation Intel Core i7-10750H (2.6GHz / up to 5.0GHz) processor along with Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. However, there’s an option for 10th-generation Intel Core i5-10300H (2.5GHz / up to 4.5GHz) processor that comes with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and 192-bit 6GB GDDR6 memory.
The gaming laptop arrives in three variants with 16GB of DDR4 RAM that can be upgraded up to 32GB. It also comes with either 512GB or 1TB worth of NVMe SSD storage capacity, with the latter being divided into two NVMe SSDs.
Further, the Hunter V700 features a 16.1-inch Full HD IPS display (1920 x 1080 resolution) that is surrounded by narrow 4.7mm bezels on both sides. It has support for 144Hz refresh rate and 100% sRBG color gamut with 300 nits of peak brightness as well as up to 4K resolution.
The device has 81.1 percent screen-to-body ratio and a standard 16: 9 aspect ratio. It also has a portable design measuring 369.7 x 253 x 19.9 mm and weighs 2.45 kg. Its body is made from an anodized aluminum alloy body.
The Honor Hunter V700 depends on “Wind Valley” thermal design for heat dissipation. The company has also put two 12V fans in the machine to help keep it cool.
“When the cover is closed, the heat dissipation panel is retracted, keeping the body slim. When opened, the wind valley channel at the base is automatically revealed to form an air intake vent of 8.5 mm, increasing the air intake volume by 40 percent,” says Honor.
For connectivity, there is dual-band Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, 3.5mm audio jack, 2 x USB 3.2 ports, one USB 2.0 port, a USB Type-C display/data port, HDMI 2.0, and RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port. Other features of the Hunter V700 include a dedicated Hunter button to quickly switch between performance, balanced and quiet modes.
The hardware of the gaming laptop is powered by a 56Wh battery with 2-5 hours of battery life. It has an HD web camera and digital array mic for video calls as well as a fingerprint scanner for quick logins.
The notebook runs on pre-installed window 10 OS. It also features Nahimic for Gamers audio, which gives it a more immersive 3D surround sound effect.
The Honor Hunter V700 is now available for pre-order in China and will go on sale from September 27th. The laptop comes in one Magic Night Black color and starts at ¥7,499 (roughly $1,109) for the Core i5 model with 512GB of storage. Further, the Core i7 model with a 512GB SSD costs ¥8,499 (roughly $1,257), while the model with 1TB of storage is for ¥9,999 (roughly $1,479).
As of now, there is no official statement from the company if the laptop will be released outside China.
