HUAWEI has expanded its portfolio of hardware outside its usual smartphone business and announced the MateBook X Pro 2020. Now in its third iteration, the new refresh continues the traditional theme set that is found on the MateBook X Pro 2018 and the MateBook X Pro 2019 follow-up.
As it is, the MateBook X Pro 2020 still sports a sleek design, alongside an impeccable screen, razor-thin bezels, and hardware upgrades.
HUAWEI has finally treated its laptop lineup with its distinctive color scheme, one that can only be found on its smartphone releases as of late. The company has now brought to the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2020 the popular Emerald Green color option, plus the familiar grey and silver paint jobs. The metallic shade that is employed across all variants, on the other hand, is rendered in a way that isn't too bright but still glints when it reflects light.
The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2020 has top-of-the-line internals. It features Intel's new processors, which are part of the Comet Lake generation – the Core i7-10510U and Core i5-10510U, all based on the same 14nm++ manufacturing process. The device also boasts four hyper-threaded cores with a base frequency of 1.8GHz, up to 4.9GHz with Turbo Boost. Additionally, the accompanying TDP is still at 15W.
The rest of the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2020 is unchanged. As it is, it still comes with a 13.9-inch display, with a resolution of 3,000 x 2,000 pixels. Also equipped are up to 450 nits of brightness and up to 1500:1 contrast ratio. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA GeForce MX250 discrete GPU with 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM remains to be optional. The device's battery is rated at 57.4Wh.
The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2020 still features a video camera lens which is again hidden away in a special key between the F6 and F7 button. There is also a fingerprint sensor placed in the device's power button.
As per HUAWEI, the MateBook X Pro 2020 is set to become available starting in April 2020 in Europe, Asia Pacific, Japan, Latin America, and the Middle East.
