Huawei MateBook X 2020: Display, Price, and Specifications in 2020.

When Huawei introduced the first MateBook X model in early 2017, this laptop attracted attention with its eye-catching design. In addition to being stylish, it was located in a separate place among Windows laptops with its thinness and lightness. More than three years later, Huawei comes up with a new MateBook X model. The new model also contains the most important features of the first model. However, there are small touches in the design. Add to that the hardware components that will deliver performance in line with the spirit of the times. In this article, we will give you a quick review regarding the MateBook X 2020.

 

Huawei MateBook X 2020: Display, Price, and Specifications in 2020.

 Design & Display.

As mentioned above, Huawei MateBook X is a laptop that stands out with its design features. The ultra-light and portable computer weighs 1 kg and comes in a 13.6 mm thick body. Huawei calls this laptop "lighter than two large coffees". In fact, it shows that this laptop is primarily aimed at those who spend most of the day outside and are looking for a laptop that they can easily fit in their bag and take out and use everywhere.

Coming with a magnesium-aluminum alloy body, this laptop comes with a design that will really impress. The material used is high-level and increases the pleasure of using the device. Its matte surface has a slight friction. This friction works especially in the area behind the keyboard where your palms are supported while typing, preventing your hands from slipping while typing. The laptop surface seems to be successful in preventing fingerprints and dirt.

 As far as display is concerned, The 13-inch screen of the Huawei MateBook X is presented with 3: 2 aspect ratio, which we have recently started to see more frequently on laptops and found useful. A very thin bezel surrounds the screen. The bezels on the right-left and top edges are 4.4 millimeters thick, while the bezel area under the screen is slightly thicker. Here we see the Huawei logo. According to Huawei, the screen-to-body ratio is 90 percent, which contributes to the MateBook X's smaller surface area than normal 13-inch laptops.

We mentioned above that the 13-inch screen of the MateBook X has a thin bezel and therefore a high screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent. Huawei has a 3K FullView display on this laptop. The screen with LTPS technology makes it more convenient to collaborate with wide viewing angles and to watch things together with friends. It has a brightness above the average of a laptop with 400 nits. Indeed, the brightness of the screen is satisfactory, allowing comfortable working outside.

The screen, which supports a resolution of 3000 x 2000 pixels have a pixel density of 278 PPI. At the optimum distance to the eye, the pixels are too far to be detected. Sharpness and clarity are fine. 100 percent of the sRGB color gamut is supported. With its vivid and accurate colors, the MateBook X is visually pleasing, whether watching movies or editing photos or videos. 1500: 1 contrast ratio is also one of the highlights of the screen.

One of the things we like the most about the MateBook X's screen is that it has a 3: 2 aspect ratio. This aspect ratio, as we said, is more preferred in laptops lately. While 16: 9 is more suitable for consuming content, the 3: 2 job provides more usability for those who are more productivity-oriented applications. Thus, it is possible to view more content at a glance. Those who find the 16: 9 aspect ratio good say that it is possible to open two application windows at the same time more easily thanks to this ratio. However, you can easily do the same on the MateBook X's 3: 2 screen.

Just like the MateBook X Pro, the MateBook X has a touchscreen display. As we said in the previous chapter, the trackpad also works well. However, for those who are accustomed to using the touch screen and like to touch the screen while browsing, the MateBook X offers this opportunity.

Although we say the 3: 2 screen is more suitable for productivity-oriented tasks, it is also suitable for watching videos on Netflix or YouTube. It will also provide a satisfying visual for those who love to play games. The sound system also completes the screen in this area. The laptop has four powerful speakers. These four speakers provide a truly high intensity, full of ambient sound impact, and a satisfying sound. This audio system will be more than enough for you while listening to music, watching videos, or playing games. You won't need another speaker.

The keyboard of the MateBook X has the same size keys as the keyboard we see on the Huawei MateBook 13 models with a 13-inch screen. You make sure you press the keys deep enough, well. Huawei also emphasizes that the keys offer comfortable and convenient typing with a keypress range of 1.3 millimeters. You do not feel any pressure on your fingertips. Apart from that, the keys are not too hard, but we cannot say that they are playful. There is enough room for your fingers to move on the keyboard. The size of the keys is good, however, their spacing is sufficient. In short, Huawei has managed to adjust the size and placement of the keys well in keyboard design. Meanwhile, the keyboard also has a backlight. There is also the keyboard brightness button among the function keys on the top row of the keyboard.

For the click pad on the bottom of the keyboard, Huawei tried to make use of the already restricted area as well as possible. The touchpad has a 26 percent larger area than previous generations. Clickpad extends to the edge of the laptop and is extended as far as possible towards the edges. Clickpad's surface is soft and your fingertips will move easily. This hardware unit, called Huawei Free Touch, performs every function on the entire surface. Touch feedback, which has more real pressure sensitivity, is one of the important features. Huawei emphasizes that you can work easily without a mouse, thanks to the Free Touch touchpad.

When Huawei launched the first MateBook X model in 2017, it took a different approach by placing the webcam inside the keyboard. We have seen that this approach is also maintained in later MateBook X Pro models. Now again, we see a similar webcam on the MateBook X 2020. You will see a camera icon among the function keys on the top row of the keyboard. When you press this physical mechanism in the button view, the camera will open. Although it creates the impression that you are looking from above in video calls due to its location, you can make your calls efficiently with a 720p webcam that offers a quality image. In the meantime, being physically closed when not in use will be a feature that will appeal to those who care about camera privacy.

Operating System and Process.

Huawei Matepad X 2020 we have has a 10th generation Intel Core i5-10210U CPU. 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal memory complement this. The presence of 16 GB of RAM provides a great advantage in multitasking. Usually, over 20 pinned Chrome tabs while working, as well as the Edge internet browser are open. Add to that the e-mail application and other applications. Even in such a case, there is no problem with RAM. On the other hand, the package of MateBook X seems sufficient in terms of performance. It will easily meet the needs of many mainstream users in subjects such as photo editing or video production. 512 GB of internal memory is also sufficient, but Huawei has divided the disk into two directories, as with every laptop. There are Windows files in directory C, directory D is reserved for files.

With the Core i5 processor, MateBook X will easily meet the daily work and needs of the user mass it addresses. For tasks such as working in Office applications, Adobe Lightroom, and similar photo editing applications, the MateBook X offers sufficient performance. Its fanless design will appeal to those who are distracted by the fan noise while operating. Even though it has such an interior design, it shows efficiency in removing the heat with its heat conduction hinge design. Thus, it provides the opportunity to work silently without sacrificing performance even in intense workloads. At the same time, even if we feel the laptop's temperature rising during heavy workloads, we see that it remains within reasonable limits.

 According to the operating system, MateBook X comes with Windows 10 Home installed. As with its other laptops, Huawei has limited the number of pre-installed applications on this computer as much as possible. In addition, we see a Huawei application called PC Manager. There is also an application called Nahimic, which allows you to efficiently adjust the audio settings of the MateBook X, which we mentioned above.

The PC Manager application is useful in different ways. First of all, this application helps manage the computer as its name suggests. This application is used for driver and BIOS updates, hardware component control , and similar tasks. On the other hand, it offers some functions that allow the MateBook X to work with other Huawei devices. In this way, you can establish a real ecosystem with your Huawei devices.

First of all, it is very easy to connect your Huawei smartphone to MateBook X. Just like in computers such as the MateBook D 15, MateBook 13 and MateBook X Pro that we have reviewed before, it is enough to touch your NFC-enabled phone to the computer once. Huawei changed the area where you put your phone in contact with the MateBook X and moved it to the click pad section. In other words, after touching your phone to the click pad, the phone and computer connection is established in a very short time. Similarly, you can connect the Huawei tablet you have with the laptop in the same way.

Then you can easily perform operations such as screen sharing, file transfer, photo, and video backup. Thanks to the feature called Multi-Screen Collaboration, you can protect your phone's screen on the MateBook X, navigate the phone's user interface with the help of a click pad or mouse, and you don't need to open your phone's screen. Moreover, you can enter text in the phone interface using the keyboard of the MateBook X.

The Multi-Device Collaboration feature allows you to continue the work you left unfinished on one device on the other and create an uninterrupted working environment in between. You can pair the clipboard between your phone and the MateBook X, for example by quickly pasting a link copied from the phone onto the MateBook X to browse the website in question on the larger screen. In addition, you can mirror the video calls you make on your phone to the laptop and make your calls on a larger screen. The file transfer method, called OneHop, allows you to quickly share files between both devices by drag-and-drop. For example,

One-click backup of photos and videos on your phone is also offered in the PC Manager application. In short, the PC Manager will be one of the programs that P40 Pro users will use most. If you have another branded phone at hand, then you can use the Your Phone application from Microsoft. This app will also help bridge the MateBook X with your non-Huawei Android phone.

You can easily install the modern Windows 10 app and game you want from the Microsoft Store on the MateBook X, or continue to use traditional Windows desktop apps. We also see that Microsoft is actively acting on updates. As a result, with the tools offered by both Huawei and Microsoft, MateBook X owners expect an efficient user experience.

Security and Ports.

For security, the MatePad comes with the power button with the fingerprint reader integrated located in the upper right corner of the lower part of the laptop. This unit offers the speed and stability in the Huawei laptops we reviewed earlier. You can easily bypass the lock screen using your fingerprint through Windows Hello. Moreover, if you have different accounts on the computer, you can define different fingerprints for each account and access them easily. When you open the computer cover and press the fingerprint reader, the user is logged in and it is possible to start working immediately.

 

In terms of port options, the MateBook X has a conical profile, is not very wide. On the left edge is the USB-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and microphone. On the other side, there is another USB-C port. Charging is carried out from both USB-C ports. Fortunately, Huawei has included an additional adapter called MateDock in the box. There are HDMI, VGA, and USB-A ports on this adapter. It also has an additional USB-C port so you can charge the computer while using this port or take advantage of the USB-C connection. We recommend that you do not miss this accessory from the bag you carry the MateBook X.

One of the important features of MateBook X is that it has Wi-Fi 6 support. Although it is currently in its infancy and the prices of supporting Wi-Fi routers are found to be high, Wi-Fi 6 is a technology that offers faster network connectivity that will be in our lives for the next few years. And MateBook X users are already ready for this technology. In a way, you will have made an investment for the future. We did not have the opportunity to experience it because we did not have a device with Wi-Fi 6 support, but with the MateBook X, you will be able to go faster than other devices in such a network.

 Sound System.

Speaking of video calls, let's not go without mentioning an important feature of the Huawei MateBook X. Today, meetings held on the internet are of great importance and it is very important to understand your voice thoroughly. Equipping the MateBook X with a quality microphone system that can receive sound even from a distance of 5 meters, Huawei also offers the necessary infrastructure for better voice recording and quality meetings. Artificial intelligence-supported echo suppression also prevents echo that may occur during interviews.

Huawei offers a special voice control program called Nahimic installed to support this power offered by the hardware with software. From here, you can make different sound settings for speakers or headphones, and adjust the frequency separation settings. You can create an atmosphere as if you are listening to music in a hall, or you can get the feeling that you have a home theater system while watching a movie.

 Battery and charging.

MateBook X has a 42 Wh capacity lithium-polymer battery. Huawei states that thanks to this battery, the laptop can play 9 hours of video on a single charge. In addition to 9 hours of 1080p video playback, 9 hours of use in standard workload, and 7.5 hours of web browsing are also offered. Our practical impressions show that these values ​​given by Huawei can be achieved. In short, for those who spend their day outdoors and will want to power up and use their laptop as long as things happen, the MateBook X will deliver battery performance to match the entire workday.

Like other Huawei laptops, the MateBook X comes with a charging adapter with 65W Huawei Quick Charge technology. Dimensions of 60 x 60 x 28mm and 160 g. it will not take up much space in the bag and will not weigh. This charging adapter charges the MateBook X really fast. Huawei states that with just 30 minutes of charging, 4 hours of video playback can be achieved. This corresponds to charging almost half of the battery. In the battery charge test we conducted, the battery level increased from 6 percent to 57 percent in 40 minutes with the computer turned off. It took an hour and a half to reach full occupancy.

In short, the Huawei Quick Charge adapter really does its job well. Moreover, if you have a Huawei smartphone, tablet, or another device at hand, you can use this charger adapter to charge those devices. In this way, you avoid the trouble of using a lot of charging accessories. Moreover, the MateBook X's charging accessory has a feature such as automatic protection against overheating.
