Huawei will have its first announcement event for the year tomorrow, but it will take place in China, unrelated to the CES 2021 conference. The company will introduce three new Matebooks, one leakster revealed.
The company also has a new lineup of smart TVs in the pipeline, a new Kirin 820E chipset for mobile phones, a new tablet, and an improved Mate X foldable. However, all these will arrive later in the year, likely in March.
The January 13 announcement for the new Matebook X series is scheduled for 3PM local time or 7AM UTC. While we don’t know much about the actual laptops, we expect to see a device with the new 11th gen Intel Tiger Lake H35 series chipsets that can reach up to 5 GHz clocks. There should also be new variants of the Matebook 13/14 series.
While Huawei’s business with smartphones is collateral in the trade war between China and the United States, its PC and laptop products have been going strong lately. Rumors are the Chinese company is developing its own App Store for PCs as well to further boost its own ecosystem.
