Huawei’s Matebook family products have a sleek design and eye-catching design. In this article, we take a look at the history of the Matebook series.
Huawei, one of the companies active in the technology industry, launches various products in various categories and has many users around the world. The company, which specializes in telecommunications equipment, makes not only smartphones and tablets, but also laptops. Huawei’s Matebook family products have been available to consumers for many years and are generally equipped with eye-catching design and are equipped with the right hardware. Huawei’s official entry into the Windows product market came with the launch of Matebook; A device that used Windows 10.
The first Matebookwill be released in 2016. On the eve of the 2016 Barça World Mobile Congress, Huawei announced the launch of a laptop called the Huawei Matebook. In the following years, the Chinese changed the products of the Matebook family in many ways and regularly supplied them with improved design and hardware.
The first generation of the Matebook family was actually a hybrid tablet and could be used as a laptop via a keyboard connection. The first-generation Matebook was similar to Microsoft’s Peruvian Surface in this respect. Microsoft has been producing hybrid tablets for many years and continues to do so. In the days leading up to the introduction of the first-generation Matebook, Microsoft’s Surface was well-received by hybrid tablet enthusiasts, and few were willing to go for Huawei’s new product. Despite all this, Huawei had produced quality products that met the standards of the day.
The 2016 Matebook hybrid tablet used a 12-inch display that displayed visual content with a resolution of 2,160 by 1,440 pixels. By today’s standards, the 2016 Matebook is a device that displays relatively large margins around the screen; However, due to the low margins around the screen, it was the focus of attention when it was released.
Huawei’s first Matebook was a hybrid tablet
Huawei MateBook used Intel’s 2.4GHz dual-core Core m3-6Y30 processor generation processor, and experts’ research showed that it does well after everyday tasks. In the first-generation Matebook, we saw four gigabytes of RAM with a 4,430 mAh battery. The tablet shipped with Microsoft’s Windows 10 Home by default, and having a thickness of 6.9 mm would make the Matebook a tablet that makes good sense.
Following the introduction of Matebook, many experts on reputable websites began to scrutinize it. Some claimed that Matebook was not as good a tablet as Huawei claims. Others have argued that Huawei has merged Microsoft, Microsoft’s Surface, and Apple’s iPad to build the tablet, and that the tablet has nothing new to offer. However, many experts praised the product.
On the front panel of the tablet, a webcam with a five-megapixel sensor was used, which was not very good quality; But in general, it was enough for things like making video calls. 128GB of storage allows the user to transfer almost anything they need to their tablet. Tablets are generally good for watching movies and TV series, and having 128GB of SSD storage and a high-quality display page, the 2016 MateBook is a great product for movie and TV enthusiasts alike.
The volume control key on the side was equipped with a fingerprint sensor so that the user could unlock the device. First-generation MateBook users, thanks to a touch pen called MatePen, could easily and pleasantly do different things.
According to experts, Huawei’s convertible device was lightweight; But its competitors were more tolerant. Most experts say the tablet, known as the Matebook m5-6Y54, is a good tablet; But when it comes to Ultrabook, it doesn’t perform very well.
In the days leading up to the first-generation Matebook, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 was a serious competitor. Microsoft, which has a long history of tablet manufacturing, has made the Surface Pro 4 excellent based on the knowledge of its engineers. The hybrid tablet is powered by Intel’s dual-core Core i5-6300U dual-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz, 256 GB of SSD memory, eight gigabytes of LPDDR3 RAM, and a 12.3-inch display with a resolution of 2,736 pixels by 1.28 m.
Huawei later upgraded the improved first-generation Matebook model with 8GB of LPDDR3L RAM and a Core m5-6Y54 processor clocked at 2.7 GHz. This model had even more storage memory and was trying to fix some of the weaknesses of the original model. The competition between the Surface Pro 4 and the Huawei Matebook was interesting in its own way. The technology industry is advancing rapidly. It may not be long before the release of the Surface Pro 4 and the first-generation Matebook; But now the Matebooks and Surfaces have seen major differences, and are much better than before.
There are many active companies in the laptop market and most of them produce quality products. That’s why when you buy a laptop, Huawei isn’t one of the first letters that comes to mind. A year later, the Chinese unveiled three more Windows products, the Matebook E and the Matebook D and the Matebook X, two of which were the D and X models in the laptop industry. The MateBook E was a convertible device that Huawei maneuvered on its applications in business offices when marketing it.
Huawei officially entered the laptop market with the Matebook D and the MateBook X.
The Matebook E was very reminiscent of the 2016 Matebook, and in terms of appearance, it saw some minor improvements. Huawei has introduced this hybrid tablet in gold, blue and pink colors to cover different tastes. At first glance, the MateBook E looks like the big Android tablet on the market, using Windows 10 instead; However, it can also be used for business purposes. The margins around the screen of the Huawei tablet were exactly what you’d expect. The use of a large, bright display screen made the Matebook E a good tablet. The 12.1-inch tablet used an Intel Kaby Lake i5-7Y544 processor and weighed 1.1 kg.
Huawei entered the laptop market in 2017 with a full hand and presented its latest achievements in the form of products with the letters Mitbuk D and Mitbok X. The Matebook D had a 15.6-inch FullHD display with a 16: 9 aspect ratio, a powerful Intel Core i7-7500U processor, Nvidia’s GeForce 940MX graphics card, 128GB of storage, and 8GB of DDR4 RAM.
The Matebook D was not Huawei’s only 2017 laptop; Because Mitbuk X, another laptop company, was considered one of the most beautiful computers in 2017. This laptop was not only lightweight; It was a bit thick, making it one of Asus’ competitors in 2017. The exterior of the Matebook X was admired by experts. Huawei has managed to create a laptop that not only has a lot to say in terms of appearance, but also manages to do different things with the right hardware. Experts have praised Huawei’s Matebook X scrutiny and praised its body quality; But they also pointed out some of its disadvantages, including the unsustainable performance of Turk-Pad.
At Huawei’s Matebook X, we saw a matte aluminum cover that looked very attractive. The MateBook X’s display page made working with Windows more enjoyable than ever before. The laptop used a 2,160 x 1,440 pixel display. Despite the high quality of this screen, Huawei’s Matebook X had a good battery life.
In 2017, the Matebook X was one of the most beautiful computers in the world
The Huawei laptop used an Intel Core i5-7200U chip and eight gigabytes of LPDDR3 RAM, which was enough to do many things. The MateBook X had a special cooling system that was not welcomed by experts, and many of them believed that laptop cooling did not work well. Huawei has come up with a clever way to use it, and on the MateBook X we’ve seen small packages of gel-like material that change from solid to liquid when the laptop heats up. Theoretically, this system would speed up the heat dissipation process compared to devices with a cooling system based on a steam chamber. Huawei didn’t use the fan on the Matebook box X; Therefore, it was important that the cooling process be performed efficiently. In 2017, experts called the Huawei MateBook X one of the best laptops on the market in terms of sound.
The successful launch of the Matebok X has convinced Huawei to be more serious about the laptop market. The MateBook X was a successful laptop; However, he was weak in some respects and could not be denied. By building the next laptops, the Chinese tried to attract more people to their products by eliminating the weaknesses.
In 2018, we saw the launch of the Pro model from the Matebookbook X laptop. With its attractive design, the Mitbok X Pro surprised users at first glance. The use of metal bodies, the thickness of 14.6 mm and the excellent build quality all contributed to making the Matebook X Pro an eye-catching device. At the Matebookbox X Pro, we saw the use of an eighth-generation Intel chip called the Core i7-8550U, which has four processing cores and uses a frequency of 1.8 GHz.
Huawei’s Matebook X Pro had a very high quality display. According to the Chinese, the laptop had a 91% screen-to-body ratio. Huawei has reduced the margins around the screen as much as possible in order to give a modern look to the Matebook X Pro. We didn’t see the web at the top of the screen, and the Chinese moved the web into the keyboard. The Intozoom’s expert called this approach creative when examining the 2018 Matebook X Pro; But he said the images captured by the web were not taken from the right angle, and in general, the output of the work did not change.
At the time of the release of the Matebook X Pro, this device had strong competitors such as the Surface laptop and of course the 13-inch MacBook Pro 2017. The Surface Laptop used a 13.5-inch display, nicknamed the Pixel Sense. The Matebook X Pro, on the other hand, used a 13.9-inch display. Unlike the MacBook Pro and Surface Laptop, which used Intel’s seventh-generation processor, the Matebook XP was equipped with an eighth-generation processor. Huawei tried to challenge high-quality laptops through the Matebook X Pro, and it was able to shine in this direction.
Matebook X Pro was followed by admiration from experts; Both in terms of design and processing performance. In addition, the use of an efficient four-channel speaker made it a pleasure to listen to audio content via the Matebook XP Pro. Huawei’s laptop has brought together a collection of the best features to meet the different needs of users. Despite the many positives of the Matebook X Pro, Huawei has not stopped trying to improve its laptops and has improved their quality for generations to come.
Huawei has achieved great success in the laptop market with the Matebook X Pro. This means that the Chinese were able to find a suitable formula for building a laptop, so the most logical thing to do to build a new laptop was not to change the construction formula so much and just make some minor improvements. However, with the launch of the Matebook 13 in 2019, Huawei surprised experts and once again drew attention to itself. The MateBook 13 made significant changes, resulting in a high-quality laptop that easily outperformed high-end laptops.
In exchange for its price, the MateBook 13 offers more processing power than many of its all-inclusive laptops. The device’s powerful hardware was housed in a lovely invoice form that even watching it conveyed a good feeling to the user. Many experts believe that the 13-year-old MateBook will look more beautiful in 2019 than the 2018 MacBook Air; However, commenting on the better design of the two laptops is quite personal, and not all users necessarily agree with it. We must not forget that, in general, Huawei’s MateBook are largely reminiscent of Apple’s MacBook, not only in terms of lettering but also in their design language.
Huawei was forced to remove some features from the laptop in order to lower the price of the MateBook 13, but the removal of the features in question did not impair the user experience. Most experts were very pleased with the battery life of the laptop during the review. Many experts also believe that the MateBook 13 is worth buying. The lack of a Thunderbolt 3 port has annoyed professional users, and in addition, Huawei could offer more RAM camping than the MateBook 13. With the exception of the two mentioned cases, the MateBook 13 was of almost all high-quality laptop aspects.
Intel Core i7-85655U quad-core quad-core chip was used at Mittbok in 2019, operating at a base frequency of 1.8 GHz. The Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics card with two gigabytes of GDDR5 graphics memory, along with eight gigabytes of DDR3 RAM and 512 gigabytes of SSD drive, were other important features of the Huawei laptop. The Matebook 13 used a 13-inch display with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,440 pixels, which showed 300 nits of brightness and covered 100% of the sRGB color space.
In 2019, Mitbuk managed to score high in the performance of the multi-core benchmarks to show that it has a lot of processing power. The laptop also had an efficient cooling system to dissipate heat from the parts well. The MateBook 13 also supports fast charging technology while having excellent battery life.
Huawei has shown that it can improve the quality of its laptops on an annual basis. This time, in 2019, it’s the turn of Mitbok X Pro Day. The 2018 Matebok X Pro showed that the laptop is admirable, so Huawei had to make improvements to re-launch the laptop in 2019 to encourage users to replace the 2018 model with 2019. The design language of the 2019 Matebook Book X Pro was quite similar to the 2018 model, but there is no criticism of Huawei in this regard. In fact, Huawei’s decision not to change Huawei’s design was quite clever; Because the design of the 2018 Matebook X Pro has already been answered.
The build quality of Mitbok series laptops has always been high, and this was repeated in 2019 with the Mitbok X Pro. Having aluminum bodies made working with the Matebook X Pro enjoyable. The curvature of the body was artistically determined so that the Huawei laptop would look quite luxurious in appearance. The 1.33-kilogram laptop was 14.6 millimeters thick. At the top right of the keyboard was a circular power button that also supported the fingerprint sensor.
The 2019 MateBook X Pro was praised by intozoom for having ultra-narrow bezels around the screen, good display, dimensions and weight, very good charging and a separate graphics processor. However, the inconvenient and small location, like previous generations of Matebook, was one of the weaknesses of the laptop in question. The 2019 Matebook X Pro was an expensive laptop, making it difficult for users to prepare.
The eighth-generation Core i7-8565U CPU processor with 16GB of RAM and one terabyte of SSD drives made the 2019 MateBook X Pro a very high processing power. The product’s 13.9-inch display, with a resolution of 3,000 by 2,000 pixels, performed excellently in displaying visual content. All of this has helped to make Huawei’s 2019 laptop a high-quality product that competes with the best on the market.
Almost from 2018 onwards, Huawei found the right formula for designing Mitbucks. This design language, which is actually an improved version of previous generations, has always been admired. The design improvement process continued for generations to come, but the rate of change was not very noticeable; As we mentioned, this is not necessarily a bad thing, because the Mitbucks had and still have a beautiful design. The Matebook 13 and Matebook X Pro weren’t the only Huawei laptops for 2019.
Huawei, which has been able to establish itself in the laptop market after several years of continuous activity, has decided to increase the variety of its products even more. This has led to a variety of laptops from the company today, each targeting a specific segment. The launch of the MateBook with AMD’s processor showed that Huawei doesn’t just want to focus on Intel. Launched in 2019, the two laptops, the Matebook D14 and the MateBook D15, both used AMD 5 processor processors and were embellished with gray. The company also introduced the MateBook 14 and the new MateBook 13 during the MWC 2019, calling them “artistic, innovative and smart” products.
In 2020, the Chinese also entered the laptop market with a full hand to make it stronger for competitors. Today, Huawei is facing serious challenges due to US sanctions on the mobile sector. As a result of US sanctions, Google was forced to cut ties with Huawei, which will result in new Chinese phones being launched without GMS. Lack of GMS means lack of polystore; Outside of China, there are few people who can handle the lack of a Play Store on Android phones.
To eliminate the negative effects of US sanctions, Huawei must continue to focus more on the mobile industry and continue to innovate in other products such as laptops. Despite all the challenges, Huawei has not given up. Today, not only are there different configurations available for some of last year’s laptops, but new laptops have also been introduced to keep users open to shopping.
Huawei has three laptops for 2020, all of which have a familiar design and use the same successful formula. First of all, we have the Matebook 13 laptop, model 2020, which compared to last year’s model, has seen some improvements in terms of hardness and added to be more compatible with the needs of today’s users. The laptop, which is 14.9 millimeters thick, uses aluminum bodies and is available in two colors, gray and silver.
Having a 13-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2,160 by 1,440 pixels makes the Matebook 13 of the 2020 model visually appealing to visual content. The laptop has an 88% screen-to-body ratio, thanks to its narrow bezel. The new Matebook uses Intel’s tenth-generation processors, the i5-10210U and i7-10510U, and is equipped with a separate Nvidia graphics card. Huawei has also introduced another configuration of this laptop with AMD processor. One of the biggest configuration benefits of an AMD processor is that it costs less. AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics card is also used in the configuration in question. The 2020 Matebook 14 is another of the laptops launched in 2020, which bears a striking resemblance to the 13-inch model.
The Matebok X Pro was one of the most successful laptops released by Huawei. The popularity of Huawei led to the launch of this laptop last year. This is what happened this year as well, and the Chinese also introduced the 2020 Matebook X Pro. Obviously, the 2020 model, like the improved version of the 2019 model, bears little resemblance to it. With its modern design, this high-end laptop is one of the most attractive options for those who are willing to pay a lot for a laptop.
Huawei’s Matebook were initially introduced as a hybrid tablet; however, the Chinese company decided to introduce the next generation to the laptop and make it available to the public by examining the various aspects of the market, not far from the first generation. Today’s Huawei Matebook are among the high-quality laptops on the market. Huawei has always shown a strong emphasis on creating innovation, and will certainly continue to do so for its laptops.
