Huawei has announced the launch of the MateBook X 2021, an ultraportable that stands out for its thinness and lightness, Intel processors and maximum mobility.
Huawei has had problems with its line of smartphones due to the blockade of the United States, but it continues to market consumer electronic products as attractive as the one at hand, an ultraportable with a LTPS multi-touch screen. 13 inches with 3K + native resolution (3000 x 2000 pixels), 3: 2 aspect ratio and support for 100% sRGB color gamut.
The engine of the MateBook X 2021 is a processor Intel Core i5-1030G7 eleventh generation. A competent CPU with four cores and eight threads clocked at up to 3.5 GHz and an integrated Iris Plus graphics. It is accompanied by 16 GB of LPDDR4x memory (3,733MHz) and a 512 GB NVMe SSD.
Huawei says that the MateBook X 2021 is capable of running silently, but we don’t know (not detailed in the specs) if it can actually run without an active fan or does it quietly. What is known is that it is built in a single aluminum and magnesium body (very attractive and similar to the 2020 model) with a matte color finish and its dimensions (284.4 × 206.7 × 13.6 mm) and weight (only 1 kg) provides an excellent portability experience.
It has Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, two USB Type-C ports and has a 42 Wh lithium polymer battery for which autonomy has not been offered. Your audio system is powered by four speakers that promise «clear highs and deep lows«. Another change from the previous model is the pressure sensitive touch panel, which detects pressure feedback and improves the experience.
Huawei sells the MateBook X 2021 in silver, blue and green finishes and is available in China for approximately 8,999 yuan. $ 1,400. Very attractive this ultraportable, in the line of Apple’s MacBook / Air, with extreme mobility thanks to its very low weight and thickness and a competent hardware base. Hopefully it will reach the international market soon.
