Huawei took the wraps off its latest-gen Matebook series dubbed as the MateBook 13 and MateBook 14. This lineup symbolizes the company`s ultra-portable lightweight range of laptops. Besides some petty redo, changes remain restricted to a Full View display and upgraded performance.
The MateBook 14 sports a 14-inch Full HD (2160x 1440) resolution with a Full View 10-point touch screen display. The bezels are hunkered down to a bare 4.9 mm which gives it a screen-to-body ratio of 90% that supports Huawei`s One Glass Solution. It measures 307.5 x 223.8 x 15.9 mm and weighs in at 1.49 kg. Powered by an 8thGen Intel Core i7-8565U processor with NVIDIA GeForce MX 250 GPU and 2 GB DDR5 VRAM, this laptop is functionally efficient to handle day to day workload.
Next comes the MateBook 13, which is a toned down 13-inch version of the MateBook 14. It’s powered by a same 8thGen Intel Core i7-8565U processor, with downgraded NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU. It too packs the Full View 3:2 display with 10-point multi-touch option and a screen-to-body ratio of 88%.
Both the laptops come with Huawei Shark Fin Fan 2.0 design that facilitates higher air flow adding to better cooling performance. The laptop is equipped with a 57.4 Watt/hr. the battery that can be charged using the included 65W power adapter. They also include Huawei`s proprietary subsets such as the Share 3.0 OneHop that allows cross-platform file sharing between devices.
The MateBook 14 also includes the Fingerprint Power Button 2.0 which calls for a fingerprint sensor that’s integrated right into the power button that enables One Touch Login. The MateBooks also supports the Dolby Atmos audio drivers which creates an immersive surrounding.
Huawei MateBook laptops would be available in China starting Feb 2019 with subsequent roll out across select markets by April 2019.
