The company has now announced that it will be launched outside of China as well. Keep reading to know more about the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Huawei MateBook X in Nepal.
Huawei MateBook X Overview
Design and Display
The body of Huawei MateBook X is built with magnesium-aluminum alloy. The laptop will be available in two colors – Frost Green and Silver Frost. That is two less than the option available for the Chinese audience. The MateBook X weighs around 1kg, is slim at 13.6mm thickness, and sports a 13-inch LTPS screen that supports 3K resolution. The bezels have been greatly reduced to help the laptop achieve the screen to body ratio of 90%. Similarly, the aspect ratio here is 3:2.
Its screen boasts a pixel density of 278PPI and a brightness level of 400 nits (typical value). This touch screen supports up to 10 touches simultaneously. Huawei says that the screen is fingerprint-proof. For designers, the screen covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut.
Pressure Sensitive TrackPad
The talking point of the laptop is the new pressure-sensitive trackpad. According to the company, it can detect different pressure levels and provide haptic feedback like a physical button. It also comes with NFC integrated onto it. Users can enter multi-screen collaboration mode by placing a smartphone on the trackpad. In this mode, users can use the laptop to transfer files, edit them, and transfer video calls to the laptop.
Performance and Memory
MateBook X is powered by 10 Gen Intel Comet Lake processors. Users can choose between two configurations. The base variant comes with Core i7 10210U, while the top-end model features Core i7 10510U. Both processors feature 4 cores and 8 threads but the Core i7 has a faster clock speed and larger cache memory. Irrespective of the processor, the MateBook X comes with 512GB of SSD of storage and 16GB of LPDDR3 Ram. The 8GB variant will not be stepping outside of Chine for now.
Huawei has opted for a fanless cooling system. The MateBook X features a Vapor Chamber heat dissipation mechanism with multi-layer graphite sheets.

MateBook X relies on a 42 Whr battery with support for 65W fast charging. The company claims the laptop can last 9 hours of continuous video playback. For biometrics, Huawei has integrated the fingerprint sensor on the power button. Talking about ports, the MateBook X has two USB Type-C ports and a 3.5mm jack.
