Tecno Unveils First Laptop, the Megabook T1 at the IFA 2022

Tecno is widely known for their smartphones especially in parts of Africa, but laptops? yeah, they just unveiled their first-ever laptop at the 2022 IFA in Berlin , calling it the MegaBook T1. Tecno’s sister brands, Infinix and Itel already has laptops like the Inbook X2 and the Able 1 respectively, as a part of their AIoT ecosystem, so Tecno’s own was expected.

The MegaBook T1 and it’s Features

The Megabook T1 is an ultra-slim laptop made with aluminium metal, having a thickness of just 14.8 mm while weighing less than 1.5 Kg, pretty sweet right? the Design is a two-tone finish with the “startrail Phantom” which is just multiple shining strips running across the lid horizontally.

The Display is sized at 15.6-inches and Tecno says it has 100%sRGB which will increase the colour accuracy and the brightness which is peaked at 350 nits.

The MegaBook T1 has the 10th Gen Intel Core i5-1157G processor at it’s helm, powering the device, which makes this device capable of, school/office work, or playing some gaming titles. It is aided by either 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage, or 16GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage, the choice is left to the buyer. If you decide that the core-i5 is a deal breaker, Tecno gives an option for a Core-i7. Windows 11 OS controls the software area.

The 70Wh battery on this laptop is quite impressive, as Tecno says that it can last you up to 17.5 hours of use, and when it runs out of power, you have an incredibly fast 65W GaN charging brick to juice it up. Speaking about features, the power button doubles as a fingerprint reader, the keyboard has backlights which will aid night time use, a 2MP webcam is present, as well as, Bluetooth 5.0.

Tecno want to give it’s customers a superior audio quality with the MegaBook T1, that’s why they have put the VOC sound system into it, a system that combines AI with Tecno audio lab, and DTS immersive sound. Ai ENC technology is also present in the dual-mic system in order to weed out unwanted noise.

The MegaBook T1 has the right ports you will be needing, they include two Type-C ports, an HDMI port, a USB 3.1, a 3.5mm audio jack, and two USB 3.0, and a TF card reader. This Laptop comes in four amazing colours which are dubbed; Champagne gold, Monet violet, Rome mint, and Space grey.

Pricing for the MegaBook T1 is unknown as this product was just unveiled today, but I believe it will be made available for purchase sooner or later.
