Huawei Expands Notebook Offerings With 2020 Refresh Of MateBook 14 and 13

Better screens and internals

Huawei isn’t just releasing smartphones and tablets tonight – the Chinese manufacturer seems to be taking full advantage of its license to use Microsoft’s software by releasing multiple notebooks running Windows 10. Two of the notebooks are familiar faces and are 2020 refreshes of their MateBook 14 and MateBook 13.

Both notebooks retain their unibody aluminum bodies and MacBook-esque designs, with the biggest changes being their displays and the underlying hardware.

The MateBook 14 uses a 14-inch IPS FullView display with a 3:2 aspect ratio and 2160 x 1440 resolution display. The overall screen-to-body ratio of the MateBook 14 is 90%, which is pretty high for a notebook of its class. The MateBook 13 is similarly equipped, thanks to a 13-inch, 3:2 aspect ratio IPS 2K panel with a resolution of 2160 x 1440, giving the notebook an overall screen-to-body ratio of 88%. Both screens are touch-capable, with Huawei promising 10 touchpoints to the display for more precise controls.

Both notebooks come with Huawei Share, the company’s proprietary software that allows you to quickly connect your Huawei phone to the notebooks for seamless sharing and connectivity.

The Huawei MateBook 14 and 13 comes with Intel’s 10th Generation Intel Core i7-10510U, paired with an NVIDIA GeForce MX250 discrete graphics, as well as 2×2 MIMI dual WiFi antennas. The notebook can also be equipped with up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of PCIe SSD storage.

No prices have been set for these two products as of yet, we’ll update this article as soon as we get the word.
