A company as prolific as Huawei in the world of mobile phones, is taking it more calmly on its way with laptops. A little over a year ago we saw them launch in this business with the MateBook, and why deny it, both by design and specifications, started with a very good foot.
Today we bring you what we can consider as a new step, more than a renewal, since we are not before big and powerful tablet to which we can put a keyboard: this is a laptop. It is called Huawei MateBook X and again the chosen operating system is Windows 10.
The first thing we have to know about the Huawei MateBook X is that it grows in screen size, it does so to be placed in the 13 inch – 12 inch the original Matebook -. This does not affect the final size, since the screen frames are tiny: 88% of the front is screen and the format is 3: 2.
The 13-inch screen also looks good, with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,440 pixels and Gorilla Glass protection. Huawei says its panel reproduces 100% in sRGB and the contrast reaches 1000: 1.
Going to performance, the small computer has space to place a next- generation Intel Core i7, capable of running at 2.7GHz. The hardware is associated with a battery of 41.4Wh that Huawei says gives for 10 hours consuming video.

They have taken advantage to introduce a new cooling system called “Huawei Space Cooling Technology”. We will find out more about what this is – mainly that there are no fans.
The Huawei Matebook X is first portable with Dolby Atmos sound, with permission of the Legion Y920. The laptop carries fingerprint reader integrated in the power button, it is endowed with a chip of independent encryption.
Another detail to note is that the charger is only slightly larger than a smartphone and charging via USB-C connector. Huawei offers a MateDock2 that extends this port with HDMI, another USB-C, a USB-A and VGA.

Curious, Huawei has chosen the same day in which Microsoft presents the latest update of Surface, I do not know if it is lucky or not, but the comparative – despite being different products – is raised from day one.
