CES 2019: Huawei Introduces MateBook 13 Laptop and MediaPad M5 Lite Tablet

By James A.

Huawei was present at CES 2019, but no phones were seen. Instead they brought on a tablet and laptop: MediaPad M5 Lite and Huawei MateBook 13. The slate was already showcased internationally, but it only now reaches USA, while the laptop is pretty much a MacBook Air rival.

Huawei MateBook 13 is a 2.86 pound laptop with a 13 inch screen that offers a 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution. It’s a slim laptop with a large trackpad and a keyboard that can take a few spills. It has a starting price of $999 and inside we find an 8th gen Intel Core i5-8265U processor (Whiskey Lake), as well as 256 GB of storage and integrated graphics.

There’s also a Core i7-8565U version with 512 GB of storage and also adding an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU, priced at $1299. Both versions have 8 GB of RAM and a battery that should offer around 10 hours of video playback. There’s also a fingerprint reader here within the Power button.

 

Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite is a new tablet from Huawei, well not exactly new, but new in USA, where it hasn’t been available. It’s got a 10.1 inch screen, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, plus a starting price of $299. There’s an USB Type-C port on board, plus an audio jack and there are 4 speakers in the mix with Harman Kardon certification.

Specs include a Kirin 659 CPU, a 7500 mAh battery and Huawei promises 13 hours of video playback time.

Huawei debuts yet another MacBook-looking laptop: The $999 Matebook 13

By Valentina Palladino

If Huawei’s Matebook X Pro was its answer to Apple’s MacBook Pro, the new Matebook 13 is the company’s answer to the MacBook Air. At CES, Huawei introduced a new series into its laptop line, and its flagship is a 13-inch Ultrabook that borrows just as much from its premium Matebook X Pro as it does from Apple’s revamped thin-and-light notebook.

The Matebook 13 resembles a slightly shrunken version of the Matebook X Pro, with a satin finish on its aluminum alloy body and diamond-cut edges. Since it’s a 13-inch device, there’s less space around the keyboard than there is on the Matebook X Pro, giving the keyboard and trackpad area a similar look to Apple’s MacBook. There’s not a lot of space on the sides of the keys, and the trackpad is a bit narrow, but Huawei did include its combined fingerprint reader and power button at the top-right corner of the keyboard.

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.
