Huawei's new MateBooks coming to the US in July, starting at $699.99

We don't often get Huawei products in the US, but the MateBook line is coming to online retailers starting next week, and at lower prices than in Europe.

Huawei Mate 9 review: Meet the new best Android smartphone for business users (RIP, Note 7)

At a whopping 5.9 inches, Huawei's latest combines the big screen and big battery of the Mate 8 with the fantastic dual-lens Leica camera of the P9. At just $599.99, it is a compelling offering priced much lower than models released outside the US.

I've spent a few weeks with the Huawei MateBook X (see my full review) and thanks to the included MateDock 2 I have been able to use it efficiently with a dual screen setup.

At the time of my review we only knew European pricing, but we now have the details on availability in the US. You'll be able to pre-order the MateBook X, MateBook E, and MateBook D on Amazon and Newegg starting on Friday, June 30, through Friday, July 7.

The MateBook X will be available in space gray with the i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and 256GB drive for just $1,099.99 while a prestige gold one with an i7, 8GB RAM, and 512GB drive will cost you $1,299.99. These include the MateDock 2 so are ready for productivity right out of the box.

The MateBook E will be available in titanium gray with the M4, 4GB RAM, 128GB drive model priced at $799.99 and the i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB drive model in champagne gold at $999.99. The MateBook D will be available only in champagne gold with the i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and 1TB drive for $699.99.

These are surprisingly much lower than the European pricing, which ranged from $1,569 to $1,906 for the equivalent MateBook X models. I have been testing the i5 model MateBook X and am very surprised to see the $1,100 price tag. I think it is definitely a device to consider.

The MateBook X is a sleek, attractive, and well designed laptop with an outstanding Dolby Atmos sound system that is more than just a name, but an audio experience developed in direct partnership with Dolby.
