Huawei officially launches MateBook X 2020 in China as the successor to the original from 2017. It features a similar design as the MateBook X Pro 2020 from earlier this year and even shares most of its specifications with it. The only thing that makes it stand out is the fact that it is the first Windows laptop to feature a pressure-sensitive trackpad.
HUAWEI MateBook X 2020 Specifications
The newly announced HUAWEI MateBook X 2020 sports a 13-inch 3K ( 3000 x 2000 pixels) LTPS LCD touchscreen panel with 3:2 aspect ratio, 90% screen to body ratio, 100% sRGB color gamut, 1500:1 contrast ratio, 400 nits brightness, 178° viewing angle, and 10-point multitouch.
Further, the body of the laptop is made of magnesium-aluminium alloy and it weighs only about 1Kg. Also, it measures only 284.4 x 206.7 x 13.6 mm in dimensions. Since it is slimmer than most thin and light laptops in the market, it uses a fanless heat dissipation system.

Talking about the elephant in the room, the pressure-sensitive trackpad included in this laptop makes it the first Windows laptop to come with this hardware. Huawei calls it Free Touch, which is vaguely inspired by Apple’s Force Touch trackpad on MacBooks. It is capable of detecting various pressure levels and even provides vibration feedback.
Other features of this new Huawei notebook includes 4 x speakers, 2 x microphones, pop-up camera, backlit chocolate keyboard, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, 2 x USB Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, 42Whr battery, and support for 65W fast charging.
