Honor’s Malaysia branch concluded a big launch event where we got three devices that were previously launched in China earlier this year. There’s the Honor 70 – an upper midrange phone with a Snapdragon 778G+ chipset and 66W charging. The Honor Pad 8 features a 12-inch IPS screen and Snapdragon 680 SoC while the MagicBook 14 is Honor’s latest slim laptop with Intel’s 12-gen CPU and a 75Wh battery.

The selfie cam on the front is 32MP. There’s a 4,800 mAh battery with 66W wired fast charging and Android 12-based Magic UI 6.1 on the software side.
