Huawei teases new MateBook X with a thinner design and a 3K display ahead of its August 19 unveiling
Only a few months have passed since we reviewed the MateBook X, but the company is already gearing up to release a new model. We have been fans of the MateBook X line in recent years, mainly on account of its stylish design, its good battery life and the inclusion of the MateDock 2 on this year's model.
A teaser published by Huawei on its Weibo channel suggests that the company has overhauled the design of the MateBook X, though. We are only going off one promotional image, but the upcoming MateBook X looks thinner than its current model. Its port selection has also been revised, with Huawei dropping one USB Type-C port from the left-hand side of the device. The device would appear to be too thin to have a USB Type-A port as the current model does.
Huawei has, according to Sparrows News, stated that the MateBook X would come in a variety of sizes. Additionally, the device will have a 3K display housed in a "metal-frameless design". The display apparently will have such thin bezels that it will appear as if it is floating, but that remains to be seen.
The MateBook X is said to weigh about 1 kg too, which would be a reduction of around 30% from the current model, which weighs 1.34 kg. Other details remain unknown at this stage, but Huawei will unveil the new MateBook X on August 19.
