Huawei MateBook X leads its second wave of Windows 10 devices

Huawei has been conspicuously quiet on the PC front since it introduced the MateBook last year, but the company is breaking its long silence with three new Windows 10 devices.

Starting off with something new, Huawei introduced the MateBook X as the company’s first Ultrabook. The 13-inch laptop comes as a direct competitor to the MacBook Pro and largely draws its styling from Apple’s best selling notebook.

That said, Huawei’s Ultrabook stands out with an fingerprint reader integrated into the power button, 3:2 aspect ratio display and a fanless cooling system that uses aerospace-grade phase changing material.

In terms of power, the MateBook X comes outfitted with 7th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, 256 or 512GB of SSD storage and up to 8GB of RAM. Huawei claims the laptop’s  41.4Wh battery will see it through nine hours of constant use.

From E to D

Alongside the MateBook X, Huawei also announced an updated version of its tablet christened the MateBook E. It comes with the typical year-over-year upgrades including the latest Kaby Lake Intel Core i5-Y and m3 processors.

Huawei has also improved the ergonomics of its 2-in-1 tablet with a new case that extends its range of motion to 160-degrees. The number of Pogo pins required to connect the tablet to the base has also been reduced from seven to three, which should help resolve some docking issues seen on the original model.

Last but not least, the MateBook D is Huawei’s largest laptop featuring a 15-inch FHD screen and an optional Nvidia GeForce 940MX for discrete graphics. Measuring in at 35.8 × 23.9 x 1.69 cm and 1.9 Kg (4.19 pounds), it definitely looks to be one of the lighter multimedia laptops we’ve seen.

Huawei has yet to confirm availability and pricing details for its three new computing devices, but we’ll update this post as soon as the information becomes available.
