Huawei’s new MateBook X 2021 is a costly notebook with less attractive feature

Huawei has been hit pretty hard by the regulations and bans imposed upon the tech giant by the US administration. However, the company is far from giving up. It has recently updated the MateBook X, which is now being called the MateBook X 2021.

The new laptop is similar in looks to the MateBook X Pro 2021 which the company released earlier this year. This edition of the 2021 MateBook X runs on Intel’s Tiger Lake processors. Huawei is also selling it’s  MateBook X Pro 2021 with a Core i5-1135G7 or a Core i7-1165G7, on the other hand, the MateBook X 2021 is only available in a sole Core i5 option.

To make things even worse, the manufacturer is selling the laptop with a Core i5-1130G7, a TDP-limited version of the Core i5-1135G7. The Core i5-1130G7 peaks at just 9 W, 19 W lower than the Core i5-1135G7.

Huawei’s MateBook X 2021 has 16 GB of LPDDR4x RAM running at 3,733 MHz, a 512 GB PCIe SSD, and a 42 Wh battery. It comes with a 13-inch IPS panel which is a derivative from last year’s model, and it has a resolution of 3,000 x 2,000 pixels in a 3:2 aspect ratio. The display touches 400 nits at full brightness and covers 100% of the sRGB color space with a 1,500:1 contrast ratio.

However, despite having so many letdowns the MateBook X 2021 isn’t cheap in any sense. Huawei sells the laptop for CNY 8,999, close to US$1,400 at current exchange rates. Huawei has only unveiled the Matebook X 2021 in China so far.

Considering the limitations which Huawei has been facing since the implications from various bans imposed on it by the US administration. The company ought to have offered various attractive options in its new Huawei MateBook X 2021 model.
