Honor recently launched its first-ever gaming laptop in China, the Honor Hunter V700. Not only does it sport a rather unique design, it’s also packing some capable hardware, including Intel’s 10th generation processors, an optional upgrade to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, as well as a 144Hz screen.
Three different variants of the Hunter V700 are offered in China. The base model comes with a GTX 1660 Ti GPU, a Core i5-10300H processor paired with 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. This particular configuration costs 7,499 Chinese yuan, which comes up to about RM4,560.
A tier up is the RTX 2060 variant of the Hunter V700. Not only does it come with a better GPU, it’s paired with a faster Core i7-10750H processor too. Other specifications of this model is identical to the aforementioned configuration, and it’s priced at 8,499 yuan (approximately RM5,175).
Last but certainly not least is the range-topping Hunter V700, which swaps out the 512GB SSD of the previous model for a much more generous 1TB drive. For this storage upgrade, you’d have to fork out 9,999 yuan (around RM6,075).
Regardless of which variant you go for, all configurations of the Hunter V700 feature the same 16.1-inch IPS 1920 x 1080 screen with a fast 144Hz refresh rate. If you’re into fast paced games, you can expect to get superior motion clarity with this display to give you a competitive edge.
Design wise, the Hunter V700 has a relatively minimalist look with an aluminium body and a backlit logo on the top lid. It also has quite an interesting cooling system: when the laptop is opened up, the bottom cover is slightly exposed for better thermal performance. According to Honor, this improves air flow by up to 40%.
At the moment, the Honor Hunter V700 is only available for pre-order in China, where it will hit store shelves in the country on 24 September. Given that Honor offers its range of laptops here in Malaysia, there’s a chance the company will introduce the Hunter V700 locally.
