Huawei Matebook 13 Laptop Gets Whiskey-U Version With NFC Support

By Radu Iorga

Huawei just added one more laptop to its Matebook lineup, one that comes with NFC support. It’s the Huawei MateBook 13 with a Whiskey-U CPU in the mix. The product is pretty slim and light for a 13.3 incher, which itself is a pretty compact format.

This newcomer has a 3:2 aspect ratio and relies on the Intel Whiskey Lake-U processor. It also gives you a fingerprint scanner and NFC. This laptop was unveiled over the past 24 hours during an event in China and one of the differences between this and the MateBook X Pro is the fact that the camera is now placed above the display.

The screen used here is an IPS LCD with a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels, with 100% sRGB color gamut and narrow bezels, reaching an 88% screen to body ratio. The whole laptop is just 2.8 pound heavy and measures 0.6 inches in thickness. It comes in gray, silver and rose gold and the laptop is positioned in the same segment as the Apple MacBook Air, but with some extra CPU power. They’re even compared in the official slides.

 

The CPU versions are Core i5/Core i7 8th gen of course and the graphics are Intel UHD 620 or Geforce MX150. 8 GB of RAM are here, plus a 256 GB SSD and a 42 Wh battery, which offers up to 10 hours of battery life. On the connectivity front there’s an USB Type-C port, WiFi, Bluetooth and an audio jack. Huawei Share 3.0 lets you share files between a PC and a Huawei phone at around 30 MB/s.

Expect the Huawei Matebook 13 to ship next month, but sadly we have no price.

Today’s Apple event brought us not only a new iPad Pro (2018) or two, but also new laptops and desktops. The MacBook Air got a Retina Screen version, while the Mac Mini was updated for the first time since 2014.

Apple’s latest MacBook Air is the first of its kind to sport a Retina Display. It offers a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, which means 4 million pixels and four times more than the previous MacBook Air.

The device is a 13.3 inch machine with an edge to edge screen and narrow bezels. It’s supposed to be 17% smaller in volume compared to the predecessor and also it measures 15.6 mm in waistline. It tips the scale at 2.75 pounds and it’s made of aluminum. A new keyboard has been included, plus a Touch ID fingerprint scanner and a 20% larger touchpad.

 

We also get Siri voice detection via 3 mics and enhanced speakers. Two Thunderbolt 3 ports are on board, as well as an Intel Core i5 CPU 8th gen and up to 16 GB of RAM. Up to 1.5 TB of SSD storage is also here.

Battery life is up to 12 hours and the starting price is $1199.

As far as the Mac Mini goes, it gets the first update in 4 years and it comes with 8th gen quad core or hexa core Intel CPUs. Plus there’s up to 64 GB of RAM and up to 2 TB of SSD storage. The new product goes on preorder now starting at $799.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: HP Spectre Folio Unboxing and First Impressions: The Leather Laptop

By Tim

The HP Spectre Folio is a different sort of 2 in 1 device that can be used in multiple modes. It has its upsides and downsides of course, but overall is a great smaller notebook/tablet (sort of) device.

It does come with a stylus and it does have a great battery and it is a fanless device although after looking closely at the video, I have no clue how this thing is staying cool! I will have to assume HP is using some sort of black magic and hopefully Andrew over at AMDTech will be able to find out how when he does his full review.

It is available with either Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors and as tested in the video below is using a Core i7 with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage via NVIE SSD M2.

The price is quite steep, but this might be just what you are looking for so I thought I would share this one.

As usual, make sure to check out Andrew’s channel on YouTube for great reviews.

Now let us proceed to that video!

Samsung Notebook Flash is a New Laptop With Retro Design and 13.3 inch Screen

By Radu Iorga

Samsung unveiled out of nowhere a new laptop today, the Samsung Notebook Flash, which has a much more compact than usual format and also brings forth a retro design. It also provides Gigabit WiFi, which is always a big plus.

The product uses a 13.3 inch Full HD screen with wide view angles and it comes in 3 cover colors. It’s Linen White, Twill Charcoal and Soft Coral. On board we find Intel’s Gigabit wireless LAN card, which on paper allows this machine to hit 1.7 Gbps in speed, which is pretty impressive. Samsung opted for a retro look, at least in the keyboard area. The keys feel like the Google Pixel Slate ones, but also like those of a typewriter a bit.

They’re supposed to offer a comfy typing experience and every keycap is curved, in order to give the impression that it’s been individually crafted. The palm rest offers a fabric-like texture, supposed to replace the standard metallic one from a regular laptop. Samsung worked with Microsoft in order to offer boosted security features for this device. It comes with a fingerprint sensor, as well as the Windows Hello feature from Windows 10.

Sadly, Samsung didn’t quite insist on the hardware and technical specs. It’s not very clear what CPU we’re getting or how much storage. What’s clear is that we get an USB Type-C port. The product is sold for a mere $715, which is quite OK. We don’t have a clue if the product is coming internationally or not. At this price I’d predict 4 GB of RAM inside and maybe a Core m3 CPU.
