Tecno Megabook S1 laptop was unveiled by the company on Wednesday. The company revealed details about its flagship notebook at a global launch event alongside the Tecno Phantom X2 series of smartphones. The Megabook S1 is Tecno’s second entry in the laptop space; the Shenzhen based manufacturer had launched the Megabook T1 back in September. The laptop comes with a 12th Gen Intel processor and also packs 16 GB RAM and up to 1 TB SSD storage. The thin and light laptop weights 1.35 kg, sporting a magnesium alloy body.
Just like the Megabook T1, the newly announced Megabook S1 features a 15.6-inch display. The former was launched in Champagne Gold, Monet Violet, Rome Mint and Space Grey colour options, but Tecno is yet to reveal colour variants for the Megabook S1.
Tecno Megabook S1 price, availability
The newly launched Tecno Megabook S1 is priced at $1,500 (roughly Rs 1,23,000) for the 512GB option, and $1,600 (roughly Rs 1,31,000) for the 1TB storage variant. Both these configurations come with 16GB of RAM. Tecno has not revealed when the Megabook S1 will go on sale.
The company is also yet to announce details of the laptop’s pricing or availability for the Indian market.
