MateBook X is a Perfect Bounce Back Attempt by Huawei

May 24, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The anticipation was high last year, when Huawei announced its MateBook lineup. However, it slowly faded off after being revealed that the products were being introduced as convertible. Now, Huawei is rebuilding that hype with its new range of MateBook devices, and this time, it seems like it’s up to the mark.

At first place, Huawei has completely ditched the 2-in-1 factor by ditching convertibility and touchscreens. The new MateBook X is now essentially a pure laptop with aesthetics that follow the likes of top brands like the MacBook.

The 13-inch device on the hardware front offers processing powers of Core i5/Core i7 processors from Intel, which is a huge upgrade from the less-powered Core m processors used in the last batch. The device also offers stunning 2K resolution with an aspect ratio of 3:2.

Matebook X will also come out in RAM variants of 4 and 8 GB, and storage variants of 256GB and 512 GB SSD. Additionally, it will also be packed with other features like USB-C connectivity, Dolby Atmos sound system, and fingerprint sensors to name a few.

Huawei also hasn’t parted ways with the original form factor of the MateBook series, and that role will this time be fulfilled by its MateBook E laptops. The 2-in-1 touchscreen convertible features a similar design as that of the original MateBook, but with improved processing power and a 2K display.

Apart from that, Huawei is also offering something for the wider audience in the form of MateBook D. The 15-inch device will have a Full HD display along with decent spec-sheet that includes RAM support of up to 16 GB, storage support of up to 1 TB via hard drive, and option to boost your gaming with the addition of Nvidia GeForce 940 MX graphics card.

Pricing of the new devices are yet to be revealed. Huawei will be shipping the first batch of its new MateBook devices as early as summer this year.
