Huawei launches MateStation X all-in-one with 4K+ screen

Looks like an iMac.

Huawei unveils its minimalist all-in-one desktop computer featuring a touchscreen with 4K+ resolution.

Weighing a moderate 9kg, this all-in-one comes with a 28.2in IPS touch screen, a 3840×2560 resolution at a 60Hz refresh rate and a 1200:1 contrast ratio. Huawei also advertises support for DisplayHDR400 along with 500 nits brightness and a 100 per cent sRGB colour gamut factory calibrated to a delta-E less than 1.

Specs-wise, you get to choose between AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600H (6C/12T at 4.2GHz boost) or Ryzen 7 5800H (8C/16T at 4.4GHz boost) processors. For memory, only one choice is available, 16GB of DDR4 3200MHz in dual-channel mode, while storage is covered by a 512GB NVMe SSD, which is weird, as Huawei’s newly-announced laptop has 1TB of storage.

Although this shouldn’t be a big deal as this is not a gaming computer, it is important to note there is no dedicated GPU, only Radeon integrated graphics. Moreover, powerful GPUs need better cooling, meaning more space is needed, which this slim little thing doesn’t have.

For I/O, there are two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C, supporting displays via ‘DP Alt Mode’, plus two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, not to forget Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6. Sound is managed by two 5W full-frequency speakers plus one 10W subwoofer, or a 3.5mm audio jack (2-in-1) for headsets users.

Working from home? Then a 1MP 720P HD camera plus four mics with AI noise cancellation should serve you well, though as usual, the quality is not going to be brilliant. Why companies don’t invest in higher-quality webcams is beyond us.

Huawei provides a wireless keyboard (CD33) and mouse (AF30); the former is equipped with a fingerprint reader. Powering the whole shebang is a PSU with a 384W capacity.

No word yet about availability or pricing, though.
