This 2020 Huawei renews its star laptop: the Huawei MateBook X. A laptop that reminds, or reminds, a lot of the Apple MacBook Air because of its design, simplicity, and lightness. However, now that this MateBook X has been around for a couple of editions, it seems that Huawei wants to innovate and make a difference in 2020. It comes with new colors, an improved look, and the latest in Intel processors. Although the most remarkable thing is that it now takes up less than a sheet of paper and only weighs 1 kg. We’ll tell you all about this 2020 MateBook X below.

New and Improved Design
284.4 x 206.7 millimeters form a smaller rectangle than an A4 sheet or a lifetime sheet. And that’s what Huawei has achieved with the casing of the latest MateBook X released. Compact dimensions, just like its thickness of 13.6 millimeters. A refined, cut-out design also has a lot to do with the materials used.
They thus neglect aluminum and opt for magnesium. Huawei says this makes the chassis of this laptop more robust and durable. And, by the way, lighter. That’s why, as well as reducing its size, they have also reduced the weight of this new edition, which remains at just one kilogram. This reminds us of the next Acer Swift 5 or the LG Gram, although in larger bodies.
By the way, something very eye-catching has also changed from the design: the finish. Huawei offers this 2020 MateBook in two finishes: the classic, institutionalized silver finish, and a more showy, eye-catching green (Green Forest). All with a touch of glitter that makes them iridescent or at least reflects different shades depending on the light on their surface.
And watch out, it doesn’t just change on the outside. Inside there are also interesting issues to highlight as the new touchpad or mouse. It improves on the previous edition and adds haptic response technology. It also now includes NFC connectivity, instead of on the side. So when you go to connect your mobile to this laptop you will have to leave it or just bring it closer to this area. Its recognition area has also grown significantly so that you don’t have to search for the exact point of connection.
Along with all this, already inside the chassis, Huawei has included a triple heat dissipation system. So thanks to the design of the hinge, the distribution of components, and the dispersion modules. So heat should not be a problem on this laptop. We’ll check it out when we do your analysis.
More Screens in Less Space and Stereo Sound
Directly related to the design is the screen. In this Huawei MateBook X of 2020, they have achieved a screen-body ratio of 90%. That is a very thin frame for a screen that makes better use of the cover of this computer. All this with 3 thousand x 2 thousand pixels resolution in a touch panel that shows 100% of the color in the sRGB system and has 400 nits brightness. It is a screen of LPTS technology (LCD) that promises great image quality with 278 PPI.
As for the sound, there are four loudspeakers inside, which take advantage of the keyboard area to improve the sound. That is, its design and position are studied to stabilize the treble and boost the bass through these four speakers. All this includes software to reproduce the sound in four modes: cinema, video call, games, and music.
By the way, the laptop also includes a two-microphone system capable of recognizing and recording quality audio up to 5 meters away. Here, Artificial Intelligence is also in charge of cleaning the sound and reducing echoes and reverberation. And they have made the keyboard have a 1.3-millimeter stretch to make it comfortable to use. And yes, the camera inside the key is still present in this model.
Performance and Battery Upgrade
As for the processor, Huawei has opted for the tenth generation of Intel, with models that will go up to the i7-10510U. The RAM will also vary depending on the model, but you can choose up to 16GB of DDR6 type, with a solid-state hard drive of up to 2TB capacity.
Regarding the battery Huawei has not given information about the final data, but about the autonomy. It will allow up to 9 hours of continuous video playback in Full HD resolution, or 7.5 hours of web browsing. So it promises to last the working day without any problem.

- i5 + 16GB RAM + 512GB SSD for $1600
