Honor MagicBook 16 Pro in for review

Honor MagicBook 16 dates back to September, when its first members debuted in China. But MWC 2024 brought us a new addition and it will be available globally. We have the MagicBook 16 Pro Edition in the office and thought we’d do a quick unboxing before reviewing it.

While Honor doesn’t have a long history of making notebooks, the company’s recent releases are quite competitively priced and nicely put together.

The 16 Pro runs on a powerful Intel Core Ultra 7 155H processor paired with an Nvidia RTX 4060 GPU and 32GB of RAM. Note that the RAM is soldered, so make sure you order the right one, as you won’t be able to upgrade it later. The SSD is of course user-replaceable, and in our case, it’s 1TB.

The notebook also packs an impressive screen – the LCD IPS panel runs at 144Hz and offers at least 300 nits of brightness. Paired with the powerful Nvidia RTX 4060 GPU, the notebook promises to deliver some solid gaming performance.

I/O is also good – 2x USB-C 3.2, 2x USB-A 3.2, a full-size HDMI 2.0 port and a headphone jack. The laptop charges at 65W from a USB-C port. The battery capacity is 56Wh, which isn’t much for a 16-inch device, but we’ll make sure to test how it performs in real life.

The MagicBook 16 Pro weighs 1.86 kg, which is fine for a 16-inch laptop, especially with a discrete GPU.

Stay tuned for our full review to see how it fares in our thermal stress test, battery test and display test.
