Huawei introduced the MateBook X and the MateBook 14
Yesterday at the developers’ conference, Huawei announced two new laptops MateBook X and MateBook 14. Both devices were previously introduced in China, and now they are debuting worldwide.
Huawei MateBook X
Huawei MateBook X offers a nearly frameless 13-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 3000 × 2000 pixels with 100% sRGB coverage and a brightness of 400 nits. The touch screen supports multiple touches and gesture control. To take a screenshot, for example, just swipe down with three fingers, like on a smartphone. The trackpad is 26% bigger than the old MateBook X.
In the typical Huawei style, the webcam is hidden in the keyboard. The two-microphone system, complemented by voice amplification algorithms, reads sound over long distances, allowing you to comfortably make calls and participate in video conferencing.
MateBook X is a 13.6 mm thick device that weighs only 1 kg, but it has room for two USB-C ports (located on both sides of the device) and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The laptop is equipped with a 42 Watt battery, which provides 9 hours of video playback in FullHD format without recharging. The device is charged via a 65-watt USB-C adapter.
Huawei has equipped the MateBook X with an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 10th generation processor combined with 16 GB of RAM. It is also Huawei’s first laptop with Wi-Fi 6 support. The fan is missing.
Huawei MateBook X Price and Release Date
The Huawei MateBook X will ship with Windows 10 Home in four colors – silver, green, blue, and pink – in October. The Core i5 will cost 1,599 euros, and the transition to the Core i7 will increase the cost to 1,799 euros.
Huawei MateBook 14
Huawei MateBook 14 – the most powerful laptop of the presented novelties. You can choose from a 6-core / 12-stream Ryzen 5 4600H or a giant Ryzen 7 4800H processor. The 7-nm processors are paired with the built-in AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 graphics processor.
The notebook is equipped with a 14-inch touch IPS display with a resolution of 2160 × 1440 pixels and the same aspect ratio of 3: 2 as the MateBook X. Peak brightness is 300 nits. There are two USB-A (3.2) ports, 1 USB-C, 1 HDMI (2.0), and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The laptop weighs 1.49 kg, but it compensates for the extra weight with a more powerful battery of 56 Wh.
Huawei MateBook 14 Price and Release Date
Huawei MateBook 14 will be sold from October in silver. The 6-core Ryzen 5 4600H with 8/256 GB will cost 849 euros, 16/512 GB at 949 euros, and the flagship Ryzen 7 4800H with 16/512 GB will cost 1049 euros.
