Huawei is a leader in hardware manufacturing and is one of the top tech giants of Asia. Though being the company that suffered the most due to the US-China trade war, the company seems to be now slowly gaining its market share and value back.
The tech giant recently upgraded it’s MateBook 13 to Intel’s Tiger Lake platform, with the MateBook X Pro and MateBook 14 joining it on the Core i5-1135G7 and Core i7-1165G7. The new laptops get all the features that come with the Tiger Lake family as they are all Intel Evo platform specified. This means that users get Intel’s new Iris Xe Graphics G7 GPUs to the MateBook 13, up to the Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs in the Core i7-1165G7.
For the MateBook 13, the manufacturer is also offering the NVIDIA GeForce MX450. The OEM is providing the GeForce MX450 option only with the Core i7-1165G7 for a price of CNY 6,999 (~US$1,078).
The features of the MateBook 13 are:
- 16 GB of DDR4-3200 dual-channel RAM
- 512 GB SSD.
- 1440p display with a 3:2 aspect ratio (covers 100% of the sRGB colour space).
- 42 Wh battery that can be recharged with its 65 W charger.
The MateBook 13 2021 measures 286 x 211 x 14.9 mm and weighs 1.3 kg. Huawei sells the new MateBook 13 in China from CNY 5,449 (~US$848), but it is yet to announce international availability and pricing.
