Chinese electronics and telecommunications giant Huawei has refreshed its MateBook D notebook with updated specifications. The new MateBook D (2018) runs Windows 10 and comes with 8th generation Intel Core processors and an improved GPU.
As we mentioned, Huawei has launched the latest Matebook D (2018) which succeeds the original variant launched in May this year. Huawei had also announced MateBook X and MateBook E alongside the MateBook D earlier this year. The notebook is based on Windows 10 OS.
The new MateBook D (2018) borrows the metal unibody design from its predecessor. The notebook sports a 15.6-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) with 83 percent screen ratio. It is now powered by the new 8th generation Intel Core i5, i7 processors and a new dedicated Nvidia GeForce MX150. The GPU is a significant upgrade over last year's Nvidia GeForce 940MX. The notebook comes in three variants - the most affordable one has a Core i5-8250U processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU, and is priced at CNY 5,188 (roughly Rs. 50,900). The second variant has specifications such as an Intel Core i5-8250U chipset, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD, the same GPU, and is priced at CNY 5,488 (roughly Rs. 53,900).
