Back in February this year, we published an announcement that Huawei was planning on refreshing its Matebook X Pro for 2020. Following on from this, Huawei has announced that it is taking pre-orders on its new Matebook X Pro 2020 models, with both laptops featuring Intel's 10th Gen Comet Lake mobile processors. Available with either an Intel Core i5-10210U and Core i7-10510U processor, the Matebook X Pro features an LTPS 13.9-inch display with touchscreen capabilities. Further to this, Huawei has also announced the pre-order availability of its new Matebook 13 2020 model, which also benefits from Intel's 10th gen Comet Lake mobile processors, with a 512 GB PCIe SSD, and a 13 inch, 2160 x 1440 IPS panel.

The new Huawei Matebook X Pro 2020 model is currently available to pre-order in two different configurations. Starting with the top-spec model, it comes with an Intel Core i7-10510U processor with a 1.8 GHz base frequency and a turbo frequency of up to 4.9 GHz. Included is 16 GB of LPDDR3-2133 memory and a large 1 TB NVMe PCIe SSD, with a 13.9 inch LTPS 3000 x 2000 10-point touchscreen display powered by an NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics chip. The Intel Core i5-10210U Matebook X Pro 2020 model is similar in spec but comes with a slightly smaller 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSD, but with the same 16 GB of LPDDR3-2133 memory.

Featured across both of Huawei's new Matebook X Pro 2020 model is a 56 Wh lithium polymer battery which Huawei rates for up to 13 hours of local video playback. This includes a USB Type-C 65 W charging adapter. Also featured within the space grey aluminium alloy frame is a 1-megapixel recessed camera, a Wi-Fi 5 wireless interface with support for BT 5.0 devices, as well as a quad-speaker and microphone array for improved audio output and input quality. Each Matebook X Pro 2020 includes a single USB 3.0 Type-A, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports with support for charging, data transfer, and DisplayPort output capability, as well as a single 3.5 mm microphone and headphone combo jack.

Huawei has also announced two new Matebook 13 2020 models which feature differentiating characteristics to the Matebook X Pro 2020 pair, although it is available in both with an Intel Core i7-10510U and cheaper i5-10510U. Focusing on the higher-spec of the two Matebook's, it is shipped with 16 GB of LPDDR3-2133 memory, and a touchscreen 13 inch, 2160 x 1440 IPS display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, which is powered by NVIDIA's GeForce MX250. The lower-spec model has an i5-10510U processor, 8 GB of LPDDR3-2133 memory, and a standard 13 inches 2160 x 1440 IPS display. Both Huawei Matebook 13 2020 models share the same space grey aluminium alloy frame with a 512 GB PCIe SSD, two USB Type-C inputs with one support charging, a 1-megapixel front-facing webcam, dual speaker and microphones, with a single 3.5 mm headphone/combo jack for external audio peripherals.

The Huawei Matebook 13 2020's offer similar features, albeit not as premium as the Matebook X Pro, and start from £850 for the i5 and 8 GB of LPDDR3 memory, while the higher-spec i7 with a touchscreen IPS panel and 16 GB LPDDR3 model costs £1200.

Each model is only available in space grey at the moment, although Huawei has stated that they will be doing emerald green and mystic silver versions.

    Plus the table seems to indicate all models come with a nvidia GPU (sadface), where the text **implies** that the "higher end Matebook 13 comes with a GPU".

    Which is it?

    I love the 3:2 aspect ratio. Too bad the anti-glare layer doesn't seem very good.
    Also, no Thunderbolt, and too few USB ports on the non-Pro model.
    Where are the webcams located?

    Interesting hardware, but I'm no fan of the glossy screens. I get that they are necessary to enable touch, but I don't think most laptop users realize any benefits from adding touch hardware. They do benefit from non-glossy screens. We have been through a the bad old days of glossy everything with laptops once before when Windows Vista was still a mainstream OS and I wish that when we had moved on, the idea would have stayed buried in the discarded fad pile. Same goes for everything-has-touch that was a thing when Windows 8 was first released. Yet here we are combining the worst of both of those feature sets that raises the prices for otherwise okay hardware. Reply

    Imagine being a 2000 year old culture and still be unable to do anything original for yourself. It’s so tiring watching these shit Chinese companies copy everything and never have an original idea. Reply

    How about DJI drones? They are the most innovative comppany in drone business and it has the most marketshare in the world. Even western brand drones copy DJI's feature Reply

    It's 4000 years old and how is this not original? When it came out in 2018 it stood out against all other ultrabooks.

    CCP is a shit government yes but there is no need to be a racist and condemn all 1.4 billion people who just happened to be under their rule.

    I have last years pro model and whilst the screen is great the camera is unusable due to the angle. I have to resort to a USB WebCam which is far from ideal. I would caution against buying this laptop if you need any form of videoconferencing. Reply
