Huawei unveils a new MateBook series powered by Windows 10
Today, Huawei introduced a trio of new, beautifully designed MateBook Windows 10 PCs, built for you to stay connected and work on-the-go.
Powered by Windows 10, these devices come built-in with Cortana* – your digital personal assistant who can help you complete tasks, set reminders, and more – as well as comprehensive protection with Windows Defender. One also has a touchscreen that allows you to do everything from marking up webpages in Microsoft Edge, to drawing in the Photos app or adding notes to your map with Windows Ink.
Let’s take a closer look at these devices:
The HUAWEI MateBook X with Windows 10
The HUAWEI MateBook X is an efficient, fanless device with a stylish design, powered by Windows 10. Though compact, the HUAWEI MateBook X includes a choice of powerful 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 or i5 processors and a screen with Corning Gorilla Glass and eye comfort technology. The device also features Dolby Atmos Sound System with a speaker system co-designed with Dolby, so you can experience surround sound, as well as immersive overhead audio from built-in speakers.
The HUAWEI MateBook X leverages Huawei’s smartphone fingerprint technologies, integrating a fingerprint sensor into the power button. Working with Windows Hello, a new feature in Windows 10, users can instantly sign into the device with their fingerprint. Even more, the device’s built-in MateBook Manager* facilitates effective connectivity between Huawei smartphones and MateBooks, while 802.11ac and 2×2 MIMO support ensures a faster and more reliable Internet signal.
The HUAWEI MateBook E with Windows 10
The HUAWEI MateBook E is Huawei’s next-generation 2-in-1 device: an elegant notebook with an Intel Core i5 processor, a 2K display touchscreen, and Dolby Audio Premium technology.
Available in Titanium Gray with a blue Folio Keyboard, and Champagne Gold with a brown Folio Keyboard, the HUAWEI MateBook E has a touchscreen that allows you to use Windows Ink or draw on and highlight webpages in Microsoft Edge, and a new Folio Keyboard with an adjustable angle of up to 160 degrees.
The HUAWEI MateBook E supports a superior audio experience with Dolby Audio Premium technology, and uses independent, encrypted chips for fingerprint authentication, enabling higher security and privacy. The HUAWEI MateBook E is equipped with various optional accessories, including a brand-new, multifunctional MateDock 2 and a MatePen.**
The HUAWEI MateBook D with Windows 10
The HUAWEI MateBook D is a dynamic, 16.9mm-wide notebook with a 178-degree viewing angle, made of aluminum alloy material, and available in three colors: Space Grey, Champagne Gold and Aurora Blue. It uses a full-size chiclet keyboard, and features Dolby Atmos Sound System with speakers co-designed with Dolby.
With a choice of either the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 or i5 processors, select models of the HUAWEI MateBook D also feature NVIDIA GeForce 940MX Graphics with 2GB GDDR5 video memory for gaming. With Windows 10, the HUAWEI MateBook D is equipped with the Xbox app and Direct X12, and can take advantage of Xbox Play Anywhere. It’s also built with everything that’s new for PC gamers in the Windows 10 Creators Update, including a better gaming experience on Windows 10 with Game Mode and built-in game streaming.
