(Pocket Ribbon) – It looks like Huawei is planning to unveil a new MateBook X this month. The Chinese company shared an image of the laptop with a thinner design on its Weibo channel. It is also expected to have a 3K screen.
Huawei will unveil the device in China on August 19 – six months after the unveiling of the current model in Barcelona. The new model will have razor-thin bezels and will weigh less (about 1 kg) than the current model. With a stunning display, tons of power and ports, a great finish and decent battery life considering its specs, the MateBook X Pro is a hit.
In many ways it is the Windows laptop equivalent of the Apple MacBook Pro. And let's be honest: that's exactly what this laptop wants to be. In some areas, it's arguably better thanks to touchscreen controls and a better keyboard. Check out our review of the current model here.
Based on the single teaser being promoted by Huawei, it appears that the upcoming MateBook X has several port options, with a USB Type-C port on the left. According to Sparrows News, who first saw the image, the new MateBook X will be available in a variety of sizes, with the 3K display option featuring a “metal-framed design”. Presumably, the edges will be so thin that the screen appears to float.
We're excited to see what Huawei has in store later this month.
