HONOR Unveils New Smartphones, Laptops, and IoT Devices

HONOR has updated its product lineup with a slew of new IoT devices. The new offerings include smartphones, laptops, and wearables.

The highlights are the new HONOR 9X Pro and View 30 Pro smartphones. The former is built with the Kirin 810 AI Chipset and comes equipped with a 48MP Triple Camera and a 6.59″ FullView Display. Users will also have access to the Huawei AppGallery and the Huawei Assistant virtual assistant platform.

The View 30 Pro, meanwhile, is being released in anticipation of the impending 5G ecosystem. The phone boasts a Kirin 990 5G chipset, as well as a SuperSensing Triple Camera that blends a 40MP Sony camera, an 8MP telephoto camera, and a 12MP wide-angle camera with a Cine-Lens. The 9X Pro will launch in March of 2020 in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Malaysia, with a starting price tag of €249. The View 30 Pro will debut in Russia, although HONOR was not specific about the timeframe.

Other offerings include the new MagicBook Series of laptops, which currently consists of the MagicBook 14 and the MagicBook 15. The laptops can get up to 10 hours of battery life, and come with a built-in fingerprint sensor for authentication and a pop-up webcam to ensure the user’s privacy. The MagicBooks will ship internationally at the end of March and start at €599.

Finally, HONOR unveiled new Magic Earbuds with noise cancelling technology, as well as new EasyFit watch straps built for the company’s MagicWatch 2. The straps will be available in 46mm and 42mm sizes, with multiple color and material options that reflect different activity levels. Both the Earbuds and the straps will debut in April, for €129 and €35.90, respectively.

The MagicWatch will also be receiving an updated menstrual tracking app and SpO2 monitor that tracks oxygen levels during workouts.

The new smarpthones arrive shortly after the debut of the HONOR 20 Lite and the HONOR 20 Lite Youth Edition. The former features a FPC1511 fingerprint sensor from Fingerprint Cards, while the latter ditched the FPC sensor in favor of an in-display fingerprint sensor from Goodix.
