Global smartphone brand HONOR Malaysia is accumulating its resources together to supply its HONOR MagicBook notebooks to underprivileged students in the B40 community. The initiative is aimed at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) students who currently lack technological access as the education sector have rapidly shifted online to adopt e-learning due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
As a leading tech brand for global youth, HONOR is committed to providing a seamless and connected digital living for everyone. Through this, HONOR Malaysia aims to strengthen its mission by inventing an intelligent new world for UKM students to stay digitally connected at home while keeping up with their learning progress.
“In what is already a difficult situation for faculty and students, HONOR is pleased to be able to assist with the learning experience from home. Launched in April, the HONOR MagicBook is the brand’s first notebook in Malaysia, and we are proud to be able to provide access to latest technology and connectivity for students in need as part of our vision to create an intelligent lifestyle for the world,” said HONOR Malaysia.
The initiative will allow selected students* to use the notebook until their campus reopens, no matter how long the period may be. This initiative helps overcome issues such as attending online lectures, accessing course materials, and working on assignments, all of which will require a notebook to complete their learning tasks.
“We are very thankful for this opportunity presented by HONOR Malaysia. At such an unprecedented time, the notebooks will be of great assistance to our students in their transition to e-learning as our curriculum shifts online until the end of 2020,” said Tan Ray Ming, Vice President Student Union of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
All-day learning experience with 57.4Wh battery life
The all-round device that is ideal for students is a lightweight notebook equipped with Ryzen 5 3500U mobile processor with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics for top-notch performance. Students need not worry when it comes to a heavy workload and long hours, the notebook includes a specially designed fan to dissipate heat quickly and an all-day battery life through a 57.4Wh battery with 65w Fast Charge that can give users up to 10 hours of usage.
