At an event in Berlin, Huawei just announced the new MateBook X. MateBook X is said to be the world’s smallest 13- inch laptop.

Talking about the specs, MateBook X is a 13-inch device that offers a 3:2 aspect ratio at 2K resolution with a 4.4mm bezel. As it is not a 2-in-1 device, the company decided to exclude the touchscreen. It comes with a choice of powerful 7th Generation Intel Core i7 or i5 processors. It comes with storage options of either 256GB or 512GB SSD. RAM will be 8GB. The company is using Space Cooling Technology, Microencapsulated Phase Change Material – commonly used in the aerospace field to keep the device cool.
