At a launch event in Berlin, Huawei today announced the new MateBook X, the world’s smallest 13-inch laptop that will take on Microsoft’s Surface Laptop and Apple’s MacBook.
It comes with a fanless design with an 88 percent screen-to-body ratio and 4.4mm bezels. Huawei is using Space Cooling Technology, Microencapsulated Phase Change Material – commonly used in the aerospace field to keep the device cool. Despite its compact thin profile, MateBook X comes with a choice of powerful 7th Generation Intel Core™ i7 or i5 processors.
It features a 2K display screen with Corning Gorilla Glass and eye comfort technology. Huawei also claims that MateBook X is the first notebook to feature Dolby Atmos Sound System with speakers co-designed with Dolby. They have also integrated a fingerprint sensor into the power button which will support Windows Hello based authentication. MateBook X is available in three colors: Prestige Gold, Space Gray and Rose Gold.
