A few days ago, there were reports that Huawei is working on two new high-end notebooks. There were also reports that the company will hold a new notebook product launch conference. Now, the latest news is that the Huawei MateBook X Pro is out of stock, however, the next stock will be an upgraded version. The leak claims that the upgrade will be the addition of a new generation processor (11th-gen Intel Core) as well as the low voltage, MX 450 GPU.
Huawei released the MateBook X Pro 2020 in China on April 8, 2020. It uses a 13.9-inch high-definition LTPS low-power display with a 3K resolution. This notebook uses the emerald colour for the first time which Huawei considers as a comprehensive upgrade. One of its selling points is its support for “Multi-screen collaboration”. This device comes with the new 10th-generation Intel Core processor and 16G high-speed memory. The i7-10510U + 16GB + 512GB version comes with a 9,999 yuan ($1,548) launch price.
It is expected that the overall design of MateBook X Pro 2021 will not change, and the internal upgrade will be a powerful combination of the 11th generation Core + MX450. There are multiple versions of MX 450, such as the GDDR5 memory version, the GDDR6 memory version, and others. According to the report, the MateBook X Pro 2021 should adopt the low power consumption version.
Huawei will also upgrade its MateBook 13/14 series
There are speculations that Huawei will launch two mainstream high-end models in the MateBook 13/14 series. While Huawei’s smartphone market is suffering as a result of the U.S. ban, it has no effect on its PC market. In the past few months, Huawei has been putting a lot of effort into its PC market.
As of now, there is not much information regarding the upcoming MateBook. There are reports that it will continue the design of the MateBoo 13/14 series. Furthermore, there may be an internal upgrade to the 11-generation Core and MX 450 configuration.
The company is also developing its App Store for desktop. Towards the end of last month, Huawei launched the Huawei App Store for PC. This store has five major sections including “Explore”, “Office”, “Classification”, “Management” and “Settings”. Furthermore, there are sub-sections like “Necessary for Installation”, “New Products of the Week” “Monthly Selection”, “Efficient Work”, “Video Entertainment”, “Design Zone”, etc.
As we all know, Microsoft’s official application market is in vain. Most software needs to be downloaded from the official website by users. For some novice users, they accidentally open a fake link and install some bloatware. The launch of the Huawei App Store will greatly facilitate app download on the desktop.
