Newly leaked pictures and benchmark listings suggest that Huawei is following up on last year's MateBook with three new devices: the MateBook E, X, and D.

We haven’t had heard much about Huawei’s plans for their tablets and laptops since their Windows 10 tablet last year, but according to new leaks, we’ll get to see not one, but three devices from them later this year. Evan Blass tweeted a press image of three different Windows 10 devices that Huawei may have intended to release at an unknown date in 2017: the Matebook E, X, and D.

The MateBook E appears to be the successor to the original MateBook, which uses a 2-in-1 design. What the other two devices are exactly is unclear, though speculators say the MateBook X could be a more traditional 15.6-inch clamshell laptop. The MateBook D resembles a 13-inch convertible laptop, the same category as the Lenovo Yoga 910 and the HP Spectre x360. Huawei’s decision to move towards laptops might be a positive sign for users, as this could mean more options for users to upgrade storage and RAM.

Even though Blass did not reveal potential specs for these devices, Roland Quandt also released some Geekbench results that seem to point to the MateBook X. If the benchmarks are accurate, this is a 15-inch device with a Kaby Lake Intel Core i5-7200U CPU and 8GB RAM. In contrast, the MateBook E will use an Intel Core M processor.

I joined Notebookcheck at the end of 2016 after being a dedicated reader of the website for the past six years, occasionally tuning out various lecturers to read reviews of the latest gaming and business laptops. As a writer and tech enthusiast, I focus mostly on smartphones, the latest trending gadgets like VR headsets, and the businesses that create it all. When I’m not admiring the latest graphics cards, I write short fiction and arrange for a cappella.
