Huawei introduced the MateBook 13 at the CES 2019 show in Las Vegas. It’s a mid-range laptop residing between the company’s ultra-slim MateBook X and its semi-premium MateBook D.

It’s similar to the MateBook X Pro in appearance, though it targets general customers rather than professionals. The new laptop is just 0.59 inches thin and weighing up to 2.86 pounds.

Specs:

The MateBook 13 comes in two variants: One with an eighth-generation “Whiskey Lake-U” Intel Core i5-8265U four-core processor with integrated UHD 620 GPU in a Mystic Silver finish, and other with an Intel Core i7-8565U four-core processor with GeForce MX 150 graphics chip with 2GB of dedicated video memory in a Space Gray design.

Both laptops ship with 8GB of system memory. For storage, the Core i5 model provides a single stick-shaped SSD with 256GB of storage while the Core i7 model bumps it up to 512GB.

The native screen resolution is 2,160 x 1,440. Chilling the CPU and GPU is Huawei’s Shark Fin 2.0 cooling system with fans spinning up to 8,000RPM, increasing airflow around 25 percent versus standard laptop cooling.



In a pre-brief before the show, Huawei said it crammed a 13-inch touch-capable screen in a 12-inch frame, resulting in a screen-to-body ratio of 88 percent.

The MateBook 13 measures 11.26 inches wide, 8.31 inches deep, and 0.59 inches high and weighs in at 2.85 pounds.

The screen itself relies on an IPS panel supporting 100 percent of the sRGB color space, 178-degree viewing angles, a brightness of 300 nits, and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio. The screen’s aspect ratio is an unusual 3:2.

“By optimizing the BIOS, Huawei makes it possible to quickly start and wake up the computer and to authenticate an individual’s identity,” the company says in a press release. “Additionally, fingerprint information is saved on the device as opposed to in the cloud, ensuring greater security.”

The U.S. wants to impose further restrictions on Huawei to completely cut off the supply chains including the goods from Qualcomm and Intel. We could just call it the latest addition to the U.S. administration’s obsession with Huawei.

Reuters reports that the U.S. Government under Joe Biden has come up with a new policy of denial to sell items to Huawei. The list of denial now goes beyond 5G to cover products for 4G, WiFi 6, WiFi 7, A.I., and high-performance cloud computing and cloud items.

A person familiar with the matter revealed that the Biden administration wants to tighten its grip on Huawei and the reversing the approval of 4G chip technology transfer. However, these chips were also approved under the early office of Biden himself.

Back in 2019, the former U.S. president ordered to put Huawei into the so-called Entity List, which bans other companies from selling their goods to Huawei. This led to massive outages in Huawei’s supply chain, as the intent was to empty Huawei from all of its tech access.

So, It lost Google mobile services, 5G chipset, and other crucial components used in telecom products. These sanctions didn’t have effect immediately but the U.S. government staged them to check the impact on the Chinese tech maker.

Qualcomm and intel are one of these companies that were approved to ship their chip to Huawei. Thereafter, Huawei continues to use Qualcomm chips in its all products whether its flagship, mid-range, or tablet device. Therefore, the U.S. likely come upfront to cut Qualcomm and Intel from Huawei.

For the time being, reports are colliding that the latest decision has been made, while a few suggest that the decision is under discussion. Either way, it’s a decision made by a government sitting in a fantasy land and licking a fantasy popsicle.

Huawei Fantasy?

Why not? The U.S. banned Huawei out of nowhere, and the U.S. government puts a ban on Huawei every year to showcase in the name of protecting U.S. citizens, while it’s just a matter of some headlines that come after such a step.

The U.S. administration thinks that attacking Huawei means attacking China, while the U.S. continues to ship a large number of technologies to many big Chinese smartphone makers. Would, the U.S. also consider cutting ties with them as well, it won’t be a matter of national security.

Truth be told, Huawei is the only company that dominated both the network and smartphone market, and there’s an old saying “When you can’t beat the odds change the game”. Odds have always been in favor of Huawei but the U.S. is continuously changing the game since 2019. But the question is, for how long?
