TECNO is a well-known brand for its affordable and feature-rich smartphones, but did you know that it also makes laptops? Last year, TECNO launched its first laptop models, the MegaBook T1 and S1. Which offered a sleek design, a high-resolution display, and a long-lasting battery. Now, TECNO is announcing the MegaBook S1 2023, an upgraded version of its S1 laptop with improved performance and features.
What’s new in the TECNO MegaBook S1 2023?
The MegaBook S1 2023 is mostly similar to its predecessor in terms of design and display. It has a 15.6-inch screen with a resolution of 3200 x 2000 pixels, a 16:10 aspect ratio, and a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen also supports a 100% sRGB color gamut and has a peak brightness of 450 nits. The laptop has a thin and light body with an aluminum alloy chassis and weighs 1.35 kg.
The main difference between the MegaBook S1 2023 and the previous model is the processor. The new laptop comes with the 13th Generation Intel Core i7-13700H processor, which offers faster performance than the previous generation. The processor has fourteen cores, twenty threads, a base frequency of 2.3 GHz, and a boost frequency of up to 4.6 GHz. It also supports Intel Iris Xe graphics, which can handle casual gaming and video editing tasks. It will come running Microsoft’s latest operating system Windows 11.
The MegaBook S1 2023 also comes with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. It has dual speakers with DTS audio technology for immersive sound quality. It also has a full-size backlit keyboard with three levels of brightness adjustment, a fingerprint sensor, and a large touchpad with multi-touch support.
The laptop has a variety of ports for connectivity, including two USB-C ports (one supporting Thunderbolt 4), two USB-A ports (one supporting USB Power Delivery), an HDMI port, an audio jack, and a microSD card slot. It also supports Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless connectivity.
One of the highlights of the MegaBook S1 series is the battery life. The MegaBook S1 2023 has a large-capacity battery that can last up to 10 hours on a single charge. It also supports fast charging technology that can charge up to 70% in just one hour.
How much does it cost and when will it be available?
TECNO has not revealed the exact price or availability date of the MegaBook S1 2023 yet. However, based on the previous model’s price range ($699-$899), we can expect that it will be affordable compared to other laptops with similar specifications. But others report it could cost $1500 for the 512GB model and $1600 for the 1TB model.
According to some reports, TECNO plans to launch its new laptop in Africa, Europe, Latin America, Middle East & North Africa (MENA) regions in March or April.
