We’ll start with the latest additions, but there are a couple of important updates for the tablet and laptop.
The Honor Router 3 is an affordable way to upgrade your home network to Wi-Fi 6. It will cost CNY 220 ($31/€28) when it launches globally in July. It has four external antennas (that can fold nicely if you need to move the router) as well as four gigabit Ethernet ports (one of which can accept a WAN connection).
The router promises a total of 3,000Mbps transfer speeds on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. Smart home functionality is built in and you can manage the router’s functions through the HiLink app. The device is powered by a Gigahome dual-core processor (1.2GHz) with 128MB RAM and 128MB flash storage.
The Honor Magic Earbuds feature active noise cancellation, which is pretty great, but they cost €100. The Honor X1 TWS earbuds offer a more accessible alternative – they may not have ANC, but they are only CNY 170 ($24/€22). And they have great battery life too, up to 24 hours.
Honor also introduced an artist edition of the MagicWatch 2 that features colorful accents on the wrist straps and a wallpaper for the screen to match. Laptop sleeves for the MagicBook Pro are also available sporting these artist-created designs.
The Honor V6 tablet (aka ViewPad 6) will become available in global markets some time in June. The price is still not clear, but the pricing for China will be announced between June 6 and 13. The MagicBook Pro laptop will launch in Russia in September.
Honor will also bring a variety of other appliances for the home – from vacuums and toothbrushes to smart kettles and air multipliers.
That's a very good price for a wifi 6 router. Honor looks to be imitating Xiaomi in releasing home appliances.
