Originally launched back in February, Huawei today has officially announced the availability of the MateBook X Pro 2020 laptop for Malaysia. While it might look almost identical to its predecessor, the 2020 model does offer several upgrades over the 2019 release.
For starters, there is a new chip inside the 2020 model in the form of Intel Core i7-10510U alongside the NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics with 2GB GDDR5 VRAM. While Huawei still retains the 16GB LPDDR3-2133 RAM inside the 2020’s iteration of MateBook X Pro, the Malaysian unit for the Core i7 variant now comes with 1TB storage instead of 512GB as per the 2019 release.
Huawei has also added a new colourway called Emerald Green although for its release in Malaysia, it can only be obtained in Space Grey at first. The company will announce the availability for the new colour at a later date.
Aside from these differences, seems like Huawei has retained plenty of feature from the previous model. Still weighing at around 1.33 kg, the MateBook X Pro 2020 still carries a 13.9-inch LTPS touch display with 3000 x 2000 resolution alongside an 1MP pop-up webcam, 56.4Whr battery and the support for Huawei Share feature.
The new MateBook X Pro 2020 will be made available in Malaysia starting from 16 May onwards with a price tag of RM 7,999. Customers that purchased the new laptop early enough will receive the equally new Huawei Sound X wireless speaker that the company co-engineered with Devialet, as well as a Huawei Band 4, Huawei Bluetooth mouse, and Huawei backpack.
