Huawei MateBook X Overview
Design and Display
The body of Huawei MateBook X is built with magnesium-aluminum alloy. It is available in four different color options – Frost Yin, Interstellar Blue, Sakura Powder, and Aoyama Dai. The MateBook X weighs around 1kg, is slim at 13.6mm thickness, and sports a 13-inch LTPS screen that supports 3K resolution. The bezels have been greatly reduced to help the laptop achieve the screen to body ratio of 90%. Similarly, the aspect ratio here is 3:2.
Its screen boasts a pixel density of 278PPI and a brightness level of 400 nits (typical value). This touch screen supports up to 10 touches simultaneously. Huawei says that the screen is fingerprint-proof. For designers, the screen covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut.
Pressure Sensitive TrackPad
The talking point of the laptop is the new pressure-sensitive trackpad. According to the company, it can detect different pressure levels and provide haptic feedback like a physical button. It also comes with NFC integrated onto it. Users can enter multi-screen collaboration mode by placing a smartphone on the trackpad. In this mode, users can use the laptop to transfer files, edit them, and transfer video calls to the laptop.
Performance and Memory

Both processors feature 4 cores and 8 threads but the Core i7 has a faster clock speed and larger cache memory. Irrespective of the processor, the MateBook X comes with 512GB of SSD of storage.
