Tecno unveils ultra-portable Megabook S1 laptop with premium specs: Features, price, and more


  • Tecno’s second laptop features a premium specs sheet and a slim profile
  • Featuring the 12th gen Intel Core i7 processor, the Megabook S1 will take on the industry’s high-end laptops
  • The company didn’t say if the laptop would launch in India, however

China-based electronics manufacturer Tecno revealed the Megabook S1 laptop earlier this week. This Windows 11 laptop will be available in select markets, though the company didn’t specify when or if it would be available in India. The Megabook S1 is only the company’s second laptop, with the first being unveiled in September this year at IFA 2022.

One of the key highlights of the Megabook S1 is its 15.6-inch screen with a 3.2K resolution and an impressive 120Hz refresh rate. It also supports maximum brightness of 450 nits and a 16:!0 aspect ratio. The manufacturer is also banking heavily on the laptop’s slim profile (13.5mm), while it weighs a miserly 1.35 kilograms.

Tecno Megabook S1 specifications

Complementing the impressive display on the laptop is the 12th-generation Intel Core i7 processor. Buyers will be able to pick from two storage configurations, with options including 512GB and 1TB of onboard storage. Meanwhile, both models will feature 16GB of RAM by default. Voice/video calling will be a breeze on the laptop courtesy of the dual microphone arrangement with AI noise cancellation tech included.

Tecno says the Megabook S1 is built out of magnesium alloy, offering a premium look overall. The manufacturer has managed to cram in a 3.5mm aux port coupled with two USB-A, two USB-C and one HDMI port, thus covering all the bases.

A 70Wh battery is available under the hood, with the company also supplying a 65W fast charging adapter with the retail packaging. Some of the other features of the Megabook S1 include a privacy-focused “anti-peeping camera and a total of six speakers paired with DTS:X Ultra.

Tecno Megabook S1 price and availability

The company hasn’t revealed the colour variants of the new laptop, while availability details are also a secret at this point. Pricing has been set at $1,500 (~ Rs 1.23 lakhs) for the entry-level 512GB model, whereas the 1TB version will cost $1,600 (~ Rs 1.31 lakhs). Here’s hoping this powerful Windows 11 laptop makes its way to India sooner rather than later.
