Thanks to the 14-inch Eye Comfort HONOR FullView display, with 100 percent s-RGB color space coverage and the screen-to-body ratio of 84 percent, the MagicBook 14 brings colors and images across lifelike. The fully animated display resolves in 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and also reduces light reflection on the LCD panel, so even direct sunlight is not distracting. Especially users who spend many hours in front of the computer can enjoy an impressive visual experience. In addition, the HONOR MagicBooks are equipped with the new DC dimming technology and are both low-blue-light and flicker-free certified by TÜV Rheinland. In doing so, the screen reduces blue light by 50 percent to protect users’ eyes.
