Honor Hunter V700 Overview

For a gaming laptop, Honor V700 is compact and quite portable too. Huawei has managed to fit the massive 16.1-inch screen in a body that measures 369.7 x 253 x 19.99-mm. The body is made using an aluminum alloy and Honor has added a customizable lighting shoulder line for the gaming aesthetics.

Performance

Interestingly, the Honor V700 gaming laptop features 10th-generation Intel processors in a time where the US is stopping even non-US silicon manufacturers to supply chips for Huawei and Honor smartphones. Users can choose between i7-10750H and i5-10300H. Both the processors are based on Intel’s 14nm++ process but the Core i7 has better core/thread count (6/12) and faster clock speed (up to 5.0 GHz). The Core i5 features 4 cores/8 threads and can only attain a clock speed of up to 4.5GHz. Handling the graphics in the Core i7 model is NVIDIA’s RTX 2060 while it is replaced by GTX 1660 Ti in the Core i5 model. Both variants come with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. There is also a 1TB SSD option for the Core i7 variant.

For thermal management, Honor is relying on its Wind Valley design that closes the air vents when the laptop is closed and opens them when it’s opened. The new design allows the laptop to remain slim when it’s closed. The laptop features a dual 12V pressure fan and a heat sink that makes use of surrounding surfaces to dissipate heat.

Rest of the Specs

The whole setup is backed by a 56 Watt-Hr battery. Taking about the I/O options, the laptop has two USB 3.2 ports, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, an ethernet port, and a 3.5mm headphone combo jack. It also supports Wi-Fi 6.
