A well-known Weibo leaker says that Huawei will reportedly refresh its MateBook lineup with AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors soon. They could arrive as early as March 2021, as Huawei is no longer allowed to purchase Intel chips.

Even though Huawei announced its newest line of Intel Tiger Lake-powered laptops a few days ago, actually delivering upon the promise could be tricky. The U.S. government has revoked Intel's license to sell processors to Huawei, severely jeopardizing its ability to manufacture Intel-powered notebooks in the future. However, AMD seems to be unaffected at the moment. We could see AMD Ryzen 5000 series-powered MateBooks soon if a new leak is to be believed.

Seasoned Weibo leaker Uncle Mountain (via Huawei Central) took cognizance of the fact that all Huawei MateBooks powered by previous-generation AMD Renoir CPUs have been out of stock for a while. It usually means that the SKUs are in the process of being discontinued. Therefore, the leaker has prophesized that Huawei could unveil its new line of MateBooks featuring AMD Cezanne processors.

While there is no word about just when these Cezanne-powered MateBooks will hit the market, the leaker speculates that it could be as soon as March 2021. Under usual circumstances, a two-month window between Intel and AMD releases might seem odd. Unfortunately, Huawei has no choice other than getting these SKUs out as soon as possible due to its inability to source chips from Intel.
