Huawei’s Richard Yu teases the MateBook X, says it takes 3 years to design

Ahead of its unveiling tomorrow (Aug 19) in Shanghai, China, Huawei’s Executive Director and CEO of the company’s Consumer Business Group Richard Yu has taken to Weibo to drum up excitement for the new MateBook X.

Calling it a ‘lightweight blockbuster’ product that has taken the Chinese company three years to develop, there are also a couple of teaser videos (h/t Huawei Central) — one showing a snail gliding over a large space (to illustrate the laptop’s smooth and giant trackpad) and another showing two ladybugs bouncing on and lifting the laptop (the MateBook X can’t be that light, but you get the idea).

For those not keeping up with the rumours, the MateBook X 2020 is expected to feature a ‘Free Touch’ pressure-sensitive trackpad, Wi-Fi 6 and a near-bezel-less screen.
