Seeing that Apple is already offering 16-inch MacBook Pro models and Microsoft is pushing for more 15-inch Surface laptops, Huawei is now willing to step up its game with 15-inch Matebook models of its own. According to the renders leaked by Evan Blass, the 2020 Matebook series will include 15-inch, as well as 14-inch laptops.

Huawei has been releasing quite decent Macbook / Surface competitors for a few years now with the Matebook lineup, but all the models have been limited to 14-inch screens. Meanwhile, Microsoft launched 15-inch Surface laptops and Apple just recently made the jump to 16-inch displays, so Huawei needs to step up. According to reputable leaker Evan Blass, that is exactly what Huawei is planning to do. Blass posted a few renders and specs of the upcoming Matebook series, and it looks like Huawei intends to finally offer 15-inch models.

The upcoming Matebooks might not be the slimmest models we have yet seen, but they sure come with quite the port selection. Huawei appears to have stuffed the 15-inch model with an audio out, full-size HDMI output, 3x USB-A ports and a USB-C one that is most likely compatible with the Thunderbolt 3 standard, while the 14-inch model is only one USB-A port short. Both variants feature the power button that integrates a fingerprint reader and come with thin bezel 16:9 displays. Judging by the thickness of the chassis, these models will probably be powered by Intel’s top-of-the-line Comet Lake-U processors.

These new models should make an appearance at CES or MWC in early 2020, with expected release dates towards Q2 2020.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
