“Huawei MateBook 13 comes in Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processor options, with 8GB of RAM as standard”
Huawei has launched the MateBook 13 laptop alongside the MediaPad 5 Youth Edition at an event in China. The new laptop brings lightweight design, thin bezels around the display, and fingerprint sensor to the mix. For a premium look, it has a CNC-cut chamfered design and a screen-to-body ratio of 88 percent.
The new Huawei MateBook 13 comes with a 13-inch display with 3:2 aspect ratio and 2,160 x1,440 pixels resolution. The display has touch support, 178-degree viewing angles, sRGB colour gamut, and brightness of 300 nits. The bezels on the sides are 4.4mm thin for a full-screen design, the company claims. It comes with Windows 10 Home Edition out of the box and 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 256GB storage as standard.
Buyers will be able to choose between two configurations: eighth-gen Intel Core i5 processor with 2GB NVIDIA GeForceMX150 graphics or eighth-gen Intel Core i7 processor with Intel UHD Graphics 620. For connectivity, buyers will get two USB C ports, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, fingerprint sensor, and NFC-based Huawei Share 3.0. For music there are two speakers, while a 1MP camera is in front for video calls. The laptop weighs 1.28kg and is 14.9mm thick.
Huawei claims that the new Core i7 Whiskey Lake processor delivers 40 percent better performance than the seventh-gen chip. There is a dual pipe design for efficient dissipation of heat. The Huawei Share 3.0 tech can transfer 1,000 photos in just 2 minutes and a video 1GB in size in 35 seconds. For audio enhancement, the MateBook 13 gets Dolby Atmos integration. It comes in Silver Moon, Deep Grey, and Cherry Powder colours. Its price will reportedly be revealed some time in December.
