A new leak may point to a Tiger Lake-based Huawei laptop in the works
The prominent tipster _rogame_ has found a new entry on UserBenchmark for a laptop with a Tiger Lake Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB hard-drive. The results do not mention an OEM; however, the leaker insists the upcoming device is from Huawei. Therefore, it may be a high-end Matebook of the future.
Huawei launched updates to the MateBook series not long ago; however, their next generation may have surfaced in leaks already. The leaker _rogame_ has linked a new UserBenchmark entry for a device called the XXXX EULD-WXX9 with the up-to-date Core i7-1160G7 CPU.
The laptop's results also indicate that it has a 512GB Toshiba SSD and 16GB of SK Hynix LPDDR4 RAM. Those hoping for discrete graphics in their rumors may be disappointed, as only Gen11 Intel Xe graphics are in evidence here.
It is the only component to get markedly indifferent scores in this benchmark, resulting in an overall score of 83% in desktop-related performance and 21% in terms of gaming. _rogame_ asserts that this listing, posted by a Taiwan-based user on September 24, 2020, is associated with the OEM Huawei.
It does have the 3000x2000 display resolution that is a hallmark of the 2020 MateBook X; however, time will tell if it truly is this Windows machine's successor.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
