As anticipated, Honor has finally launched its ‘Hunter’ range of gaming laptops in the market. And the first one in the series is the Hunter V700. Introduced at Honor Smart Life conference held in Beijing, China, this new gaming laptop is priced at 1109$ for the base model.
On short the company claims that this gaming laptop is not heavy and has a portable design measuring 369.7 x 253 x 19.9 mm.
While many focus on the specifications of a gaming laptop, its design is just as important if not downright crucial. Honor has focused on both gaming aesthetics and heat management with its new Hunter series of laptops. The body of the new gaming laptop lineup is made from an anodized aluminum alloy body. For the RGB lovers, the Hunter logo on the rear panel lights up, and so does the keyboard and air vents that also have LEDs that light up the base, all of which can be controlled and customized.
Two years back, Honor entered the laptop segment with its MagicBook range of sleek and affordable notebooks. 16 September 2020 marks another milestone for the company as it enters a new product category with its new Honor Hunter brand. The first device in the Hunter brand is the high-end Honor Hunter V700 gaming laptop targeted at gamers who are looking for the best performance in a portable form factor.
Powering the laptop is the 10th-generation Intel Core i7-10750H processor along with Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. You also get configurations in Intel Core i5-10300H processor and GTX 1660 GPU with 192-bit 6GB GDDR6 memory for the base model. The Hunter V700 also features up to 16GB GDDR6 RAM, which upgradable to 32GB RAM, along with two NVMe SSDs for up to a total of 1TB storage.
For heat dissipation, the gaming laptop relies on Wind Valley design. “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.
Like soon in other gaming laptops, this one also has a dedicated ‘Hunter’ button to switch between performance, balanced and quiet modes.
