Huawei launches MateBook 13 and MateBook 14

Huawei launches MateBook 13 and MateBook 14

The housing of this handsome notebook is a machined metallic unibody with a premium sandblasted finish that gives the exterior a smooth feel.

The new Matebook 14 might not be as impressive as the Matebook X Pro, but still comes with a 3:2 aspect ratio IPS touchscreen with 2160x1440 resolution, adding up to 90 percent screen-to-body ratio.

The MateBook X Pro will go on sale in Europe first, and it will cost 1,599 Euros when equipped with an Intel Core i5 processor paired with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. From a physical perspective, the MateBook 13 is among the nicest laptops on the market, and although its design is heavily inspired by Apple's MacBooks, there's no doubt that Huawei has constructed a piece of hardware with plenty of personality. The quad speakers powered by the Dolby Atmos Sound will offer great audio experience.

Software-wise, the X Pro features a few tweaks that let it snap a screenshot simply by dragging three fingers down from the top of the screen, which can then be copied to your clipboard and pasted directly into a project on your smartphone. HUAWEI Share 3.0 supports not only image and video transfer between PCs and smartphones, but two-way documents transfers as well. This screen also features a 100% sRGB colour gamut and a peak brightness of 450 nits.

Huawei has announced new laptop technology that will allow users of its phone to instantly exchange information with its computer. The Huawei Share 3.0 also enables PC screen sharing recording with a smartphone.

The FullView display that the MateBook 13 and MateBook 14 here means that the bezels are thin.

Though you do get a built-in HDMI port on the MateBook 14, something the X Pro doesn't have. We could happily work on this laptop - with that massive trackpad helping with dexterous controls, in addition to touch on the display. It also supports the intuitive three-finger gesture for screenshots.

There's discrete graphics as an option too, with the Nvidia GeForce MX250 available on the top spec of this laptop; if you choose not to take the graphics boost, you'll get the standard integrated Intel Graphics 620 instead. The 57.4Wh large capacity battery and Huawei's smart power saving solution combine to ensure a long battery life. It redefines the standard for display, performance, cross-platform interconnection in the 13-inch mainstream notebook segment. Both notebooks have HUAWEI Shark Fin Fan 2.0 and HUAWEI Share 3.0.

One of the key selling points of the laptop is it's "Ultra FullView" display that has slim bezels on all the four sides and gives around 91% screen-to-body ratio.

"It is our most powerful, portable and intelligent all-purpose device yet, and we're excited to bring that to the hands of consumers", Wang Yinfeng, President of PC and Tablet Product Line, Huawei Consumer Business Group, said in a statement.

Huaweis products and services are available in more than 170 countries and are used by a third of the worlds population.

Designed with the concept of "Pure & Invisible", the HUAWEI MateBook 14 has an elegant, minimalist metallic chassis, which is sandblasted to create a soft matte finish. I'd guess that means a starting price a couple hundred dollars more, though we'll find that out close to the new MateBook X Pro's United States release, which is likely to be in late May.
