Huawei has a 15-inch MateBook in the works

It feels like it's been a while since we've seen new laptops from Huawei, but it was only February at Mobile World Congress 2019. A lot has happened for the Chinese firm since then though. It was added to the U.S. Department of Commerce's Entity List, banning U.S. companies from doing business from Huawei. It's even had to launch its Mate 30 flagship smartphone without Google apps.

But if you're a fan of the company's PCs, there's some good news, as there are more on the way. According to a leak from Evan Blass (via MSPU), there's a new MateBook 14 on the way, along with Huawei's first 15-inch MateBook, likely called the MateBook 15.

Pictured above and codenamed Bohr, the MateBook 15 packs three USB Type-A ports and a single USB Type-C port. It's likely that the Type-C port will be USB 3.1 Gen 1, since Huawei typically doesn't use Thunderbolt 3 in its non-Pro MateBooks. It has an 84% screen-to-body ratio, and oddly enough, it has a 16:9 screen, while the company usually uses a 3:2 aspect ratio.

And then there's the new MateBook 14, which is codenamed Nobel. It has two USB Type-A ports, a USB Type-C port, and an HDMI port.

It's likely that these will be announced at Mobile World Congress this year. What's still unknown is how Huawei will handle licensing with Microsoft for Windows 10, given the current political climate.
