the MateBook 13 2020. This new edition of a device already known, could fly thanks to its simple design (but very inspired by the Apple MacBook) and its specifications teasers.

Huawei had already been able to prove to us that he knew how to make computers ultra-portable… and do them well. Today, the group put a layer on the occasion of a press conference held in lieu of fire the MWC 2020. The opportunity to present us with a new ultra-portable high-end : the MateBook 13 2020. The device is new, a dress of an aluminum alloy peeping out generously on those adopted by Apple for its MacBook, but on the inside of the chassis, 286 x 211 x 14.9 mm (just 1.3 kg) available in two colors (Mystic Silver and Space Grey) are Intel processors Comet Lake-U of 10th generation.

Huawei put into effect this year on two processors of your choice : the Core i5-10210U or Core i7-10510U. Both are engraved in 14 nm and, therefore, are the impasse on the latest iGPU developed by Intel for its chips 10 nm (Ice Lake-U). To give his laptop a little more graphics power, Huawei offers a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce MX250 as an option. Not very powerful, it can be used with the mounting video light or photo editing occasionally. The gaming on old titles or competitive will also be possible to condition to be reasonable in its expectations.

We regret, however, that the chinese giant does not offer AMD processors Ryzen in option. The new APUs Ryzen 4XXX (burned-in 7 nm and powered by the Zen architecture 2) however, in the approach, it is possible that Huawei launches a new variant of his product, which would be equipped in the coming months. Case to follow.

On the side of the RAM, Huawei offers 8 or 16 Gb of ram LPDDR3 clocked at 2133 MHz, while the MateBook 13 2020 will have 512 Gb of SSD. The device will finally be able to bet on two ports USB Type-C 3.1 (a first supporting data transfer and charging, the other data transfer up to 5 Gbps) and a output Jack 3.5. The whole is enlivened by a battery of 41.7 Wh for a battery life estimated at 11.6 hours of video playback 1080p, we learn.

Finish with a centerpiece of the MateBook 13 2020, its screen. Huawei opted again this year for a IPS panel 13-inch. The definition is announced to 2160 by 1440 p to a pixel density of 200 dpi. This screen covers 100 % of the spectrum of sRGB color and has a ratio of 3:2, ideal for productivity. Only downside : brightness a little low on the paper, as it is limited to 300 nits. Remains to be seen if the thing will prove to be really burdensome to use…

Huawei has not yet announced pricing French for his MateBook 13 2020. The MateBook X Pro, also introduced today, is monnayera, for its part, between 1500 and 2000 euros depending on the versions. Our MateBook 13 2020 should therefore position themselves, as the model 2019, for a little more than 1000 euros.
