New Huawei MateBook Models Expected to Be Unveiled on May 23 – New Surface Laptop Competitors Inbound?
If you had forgotten about the Huawei MateBooks, then we are here to remind you that their announcement is taking place this month and if the rumors are true, then we can expect several models from the mix of portable machines, and that will include 2-in-1’s and clamshell-based notebooks.
Huawei’s MateBook Family Is Getting Geared up to Be Released on May 23 – We Could See a Total of Three Models From the Announcement
On Huawei’s Twitter handle, the company has shared announcement details that are expected to take place on May 23. The interesting thing about this Twitter update is there are two premium looking clamshell-based notebooks present, meaning that we could be seeing well-built notebooks that could serve as a worthy Surface Laptop rival and running the fully-fleshed and functional Windows 10 rather than Windows 10 S.
According to a previous rumor that we reported on earlier, there could be a total of three models announced at the upcoming event, and their names could be as follows.
- MateBook E
- MateBook D
- MateBook X

The rumor states that the MateBook E appears to be the direct successor to the company’s original 2-in-1, while the remaining two models could be notebooks. The remaining two notebooks are expected to be outfitted with better performing hardware ranging from a better CPU and possibly a Thunderbolt 3 port for maximum throughput. The premium aluminum chassis could raise the price of these products, but if you want to carry around laptops touting the best possible build quality, then you should be paying a hefty price for that.
All three models are expected to be running Intel’s Kaby Lake processors coupled with 8GB of DDR4 RAM as the bare minimum. It is unlikely that these models are going to feature a discrete GPU since they will be targeted to enterprises, and regular users rather than the elite hardcore gamers.
