Rumors say that Huawei might be working not on one, but three new MateBook devices. Evan Blass, the popular leaker, said the company’s upcoming MateBook D, MateBook E and MateBook X will all run Windows 10. While their exact specifications and features are not yet available, each will likely fairly different from each other.
The MateBook E, codenamed “Bell”, is expected to house an Intel Core M processor and will be an upgrade to Huawei’s first generation MateBook device packing a similar 2-in-1 design. The other two models might be fully-functional notebooks, a great approach because a laptop form factor translates into better and upgradeable hardware.
The MateBook X is expected to come equipped with an Intel Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM and will be codenamed“Pascal”. As we said above, it’s going to look like a premium laptop from Huawei to take on Microsoft’s Surface Book or even Apple’s MacBooks. We suspect this particular device will be the base model and users are going to be able to upgrade the hardware whenever they want more performance.
It’s quite possible that Huawei is going to announce the three Surface Pro 5 competitors at this year’s Computex trade show, so we’ll keep our ears to the ground!
