Huawei outs MateBook X, MateBook E, and MateBook D with Windows 10

It’s been a very busy day for Huawei today, but aside from the Honor 6A, some Honor tablets, and a new sports band, it’s also found time to introduce a trio of new Windows 10 devices at a special event in Berlin.

The Huawei MateBook E is the successor to the original MateBook 2-in-1. This comes with a 12-inch 2,160×1,440 IPS touchscreen, 4 or 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and 128, 256, or 512GB of storage (on SSD). To power it you get a choice of 7th Generation Intel Core m3 or i5 processors (both Y-series), along with Intel HD615 graphics. It’s kept running by a 4,430 mAh battery which should provide up to 9 hours of battery life.

The MateBook E will be offered in Titanium Grey and Champagne Gold, starting at 999 and going up to 1,299. It comes with a revamped folio keyboard and weighs 640g without it and 1.1 kg with it.

The MateBook X is essentially Huawei’s own interpretation of Apple’s MacBook. The MateBook X bears a striking resemblance to that device, but improves upon it in a lot of aspects. First off, the display. The X has a 13-inch 2,160×1,440 IPS panel, with incredibly thin bezels. In fact, it has an 88% screen-to-body ratio.

It’s fanless and ships with a 41.4 Wh battery that’s apparently good for up to 10 hours of use on one charge. You can configure the MateBook X with a 7th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7 (both U-series and with Intel HD620 graphics), 4 or 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and a 256 or 512GB SSD.

The X weighs just 1.05kg and is 12.5mm thick. It will start at 1,399 and go up to 1,699. Color options are Prestige Gold, Rose Gold, and Space Grey.

Finally, the MateBook D is a more traditional laptop with a 15.6″ 1080p screen, i5 or i7 CPU, optional Nvidia graphics, 4/8/16GB of RAM, a 128 or 256GB SSD or a 512GB or 1TB HDD, and a 1.9kg footprint. It will start at 799 and go up to 999 depending on which configuration you pick. It will be out in Champagne Gold, Space Grey, and Aurora Blue.
