Tecno’s Megabook T1 is a laptop aimed at Gen Z users – Phandroid


There are many reasons why people choose their chosen laptops. Obviously performance is part of it, and then there’s also price, then there’s looks, and then there’s also specs like size and weight that can be important for someone who has to take with him all day.

Then there are also considerations like durability, where if someone had to work in the field all day like on a construction site, or outdoors like in a forest or a desert, having a laptop that can withstand extreme temperatures, water and drops are also factors to consider.

So if you’re a Gen Z-er looking for a new laptop that can help them work on the go, like editing videos, music, or photos, or just regular work, Tecno might have something for you. you with the Megabook T1, a laptop that the company says was designed with the Gen Z population in mind.


According to Tecno, one of the reasons they think the Megabook T1 will appeal to the Gen Z demographic is due to the design of the laptop itself. There are plenty of laptops that look pretty boring even though they are more than capable of getting the job done, but with the Megabook T1, Tecno has created up to 7 different color options to choose from.

The entire laptop body has been crafted from aluminum and the laptop lid features a two-tone Startrail Phantom design, which will show off the main color of the laptop, but there is also a shiny stripe running through it. which acts as an accent piece, allowing the design of the laptop to stand out a bit more and giving users something different and unique to look at compared to just a solid color.

The Megabook T1 also features a wedge-shaped design where it tapers towards the end to give it a slightly slimmer profile. The wedge shape also means the laptop will be slightly more comfortable to type on flatter designs where the edge of the laptop could cut into wrists.

Thin and light

Along with creating a unique design that would appeal to the Gen Z crowd, Tecno also created the Megabook T1 to be both thin and light. For those who need to work on the go but don’t want to lug around a particularly large or heavy laptop and want something that can easily slip into a bag, that’s Tecno’s intention.

As we mentioned earlier, the Megabook T1 uses a wedge-shaped design which helps make the laptop thinner and lighter. According to Tecno, the design results in a laptop that weighs 1.48kg and measures 14.8mm thick, making it lighter than some other 14-inch laptops, but that’s not all.

Taking into account that this laptop can be carried around, Tecno has also included a 65W GaN charger. For those unfamiliar, GaN chargers have an advantage over traditional silicon-based chargers by being smaller and lighter due to the use of different components. This means you don’t have to lug around a huge load brick when working outdoors. They are also faster and more efficient and do not heat up as much.


Design aside, obviously a laptop has to perform well, otherwise it doesn’t matter if it looks good, right? With the Megabook T1, Tecno has opted to use Intel processors where users will be able to configure it to sport an Intel Core i7-1195G7 processor, making it a powerhouse should users need additional cores or speed to more intensive tasks.

The laptop can also be configured to pack 12GB or 16GB of RAM, depending on your needs, along with 512GB or 1TB of SSD storage. Combine SSD storage with an Intel Core i7 processor and you’ve got a pretty fast and powerful laptop that should be more than capable for most tasks.

The laptop’s screen measures 15.6 inches with 100% sRGB and offers Full HD resolution with 350 nits of peak brightness. Considering the size of its screen, the fact that it’s actually lighter than some 14-inch models is actually quite impressive. The larger screen should also make working on certain tasks more enjoyable.

There will also be a host of connectivity options such as support for WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, USB 3.0 ports, USB 3.1 ports, USB-C ports, integrated card reader, HDMI and also a headphone jack. There will also be a built-in 2MP 1080p webcam which should suffice if you need to make occasional video calls.

The webcam also comes with a physical blocker so you can close it if you want more privacy, and there’s also a fingerprint sensor that helps prevent unauthorized physical access.

Tecno has also included its VOC audio system which relies on AI technology for superior audio performance, and there is also support for DTS immersive sound. The laptop also comes with two built-in microphones that rely on AI and electronic noise cancellation to help deliver the clearest sound possible.

Price and availability

Tecno hasn’t mentioned how much the Megabook T1 will cost (it will also depend on your hardware configuration), but it’s expected to launch in Q4 2022. The company will also be showcasing the laptop at IFA 2022, so if you’re planning on attending it, it might be worth checking it out in person.
