Huawei MateBook E 2019 Debuts, With Snapdragon 850 CPU Inside

By Radu Iorga

Huawei is expanding its notebook lineup, by launching the Huawei MateBook E 2019 laptop. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 processor, an unusual choice, seeing how Huawei doesn’t even put Qualcomm CPUs on its phones. The 2 in 1 device runs on Windows 10 Home.

This is a fanless machine, that uses 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, or 512 GB, of the UFS variety. There’s also 4G LTE support via nano SIM, as expected from a Snapdragon notebook. We also see 4X4 MIMO antenna technology in the mix, Bluetooth 5.0 and dual band WiFi. The screen is a 12 inch touchscreen with a 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution and a 3:2 aspect, plus a 160 degree viewing angle.

It has an oleophobic coating to avoid stains and smudges, plus it tries to keep the blue light out as much as possible. Specs include a 13 megapixel main camera and a 5 MP front shooter, with the main camera feeling like overkill on a laptop. For security there’s a side mounted fingerprint scanner and the MateBook E 2019 plays nicely with the Huawei M Pen Lite stylus (sold separately).

 

The keyboard has a 1.3 mm key travel and the device gets propped up by a kickstand that can be adjusted between 110 and 160 degrees. You can also use the laptop in tent mode. On the entertainment front, there’s dual speakers with dual smartPA amplifiers and Dolby Atmos. Connectivity is actually solid, with USB Type-C for charging, transfers and DisplayPort purposes, plus even an audio jack.

The battery offers up to 10 hours of media playbck at 50% brightness and it’s a 36.3 Wh unit, with fast charging. The whole thing measures 8.5 mm in thickness and weighs 698 grams sans keyboard or 1.173 kg with keyboard. The price starts at $595 and color choices are Titanium Ash and Charm Blue Sea.

New Xiaomi Mi Notebook 2019 Leaked in GeekBench, With Intel Core i5 CPU

By Radu Iorga

Xiaomi is always expanding its product lineup and for the past years, they’ve become a trustworthy name, even in the laptop area. Now they seem to be prepping a brand new laptop, part of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook series. It has just leaked in GeekBench, so let’s check it out.

We don’t know much about the size or other specs, not even the diagonals. What we do know is that it’s going to rely on the current gen Intel Core i5-8265U processor, a 2018 quad core CPU, accompanied by 8 GB of RAM. The device runs Windows 10, which is no surprise and we expect the usual MacBook-style or Huawei MateBook-style design.

One thing that would be nice this time around would be an European keyboard. The scores in GeekBench look pretty solid, between the 4412 points of the single core sub test and the 12.414 of the multi core one. In 2018 Xiaomi launched a bunch of notebooks, including Core i3 cheaper versions. They even have gaming laptops out and also Core i7 alternatives.

They’re covering all bases, except for maybe business laptops. Expect metal cases, silver, rose gold and gold versions, perhaps even some more solid graphics cards as time passes.

Chuwi AeroBook is a 13 Inch Laptop with Core m3 CPU, Priced at $399

By James A.

Chuwi has been using crowdfunding quite a bit for its latest products, including the Chuwi AeroBook. The device is up on Indiegogo right now and it’s looking mighty appealing at $399 and up for a Core m3 CPU.

This is a slim and light laptop with a 13.3 inch screen, that feels like a very lite version of a MacBook Air. It’s got the Full HD resolution and an Intel Core m3-6Y30 CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage (at least). The retail price will be $499, so the $399 is a special offer. The units ship from April and design-wise they feel a bit like a Huawei MateBook or an ASUS VivoBook.

There’s a 16:9 aspect here and the bezels are reasonably narrow. The CPU used here is a 6th gen Intel Core m3 Skylake from 2015, so it’s not exactly a powerhouse, but it beats the current Celeron and Pentium Gemini Lake CPUs. Aside from the 128 GB of eMMC storage you can also add an extra SSD. There will also be 256 GB and even 1 TB models.

We’ve got a backlit keyboard here, a 38 Wh battery and two full sized USB 3.0 ports, as well as a micro HDMI and audio jack. We don’t forget about a microSD card reader and large touchpad. Everything crammed into a 2.77 pound heavy chassis.

LG Debuts New Laptop That Combines Tablet and Notebook Features: LG Gram 2 in 1 debuts in USA, Korea

By Radu Iorga

After some teasing and presentations, LG’s Gram 2 in 1 device became available today in USA and South Korea. The machine is supposed to be a Lenovo Yoga contender and comes with a rotating screen. It’ll be priced at around $1600 and that’s just the starting price.

The product has already reached Best Buy over the past week, apparently. It combines a 14 inch Full HD IPS display with a laptop’s body. It can rotate up to 360 degrees and it offers touch functionality. The laptop also makes use of a Wacom stylus, letting users do drawing, write by hand and tweak gradients and directions.

4096 levels of pressure are available here. LG Electronics may have used a 14 inch diagonal here, but they’ve implemented it on a format suited for a 13.3 incher and the whole thing weighs 1145 grams. The device has an Intel 8th gen CPU, a slot for SSD storage, the latest DDR4 RAM and a fingerprint scanner within the Power button.

LG Gram 2 in 1 also has the appeal of the “military specifications”, which make it more rugged than the norm. It can take shocks, dust, high temperature, vibration, salt and more. The device comes in a config that involves the Intel Whiskey Lake Core i7 CPU, 512 GB of SSD and 16 GB of RAM. It’s also pretty light at 1.15 kilograms, compared to the MacBook Air 2018 even.
