The CoreBook X has always been one of the most anticipated notebooks for the Chuwi brand, and this year is no exception. In the previous two upgrades, the Chuwi CoreBook X didn’t have many modifications, but Chuwi brought a fundamental innovation to the notebook in March 2022. In maintaining the original advantages of the product, it has further achieved a light and thin upgrade.
Continue the 3:2 screen ratio, lightweight design
The third-generation CoreBook X uses a BOE 14-inch screen, which is the same screen as the Huawei MateBook 14, which is well-received in the market. It adopts an ultra-narrow bezel design, with a screen ratio of up to 85%, a resolution of 2160*1440, and a 100% sRGB color gamut. With the continuation of the 3:2 screen, the advantage in productivity is greatly increased. Compared with the 16:9 screen of the same size, the vertical display area has increased by 18%, and the efficiency in web browsing and office software use has been greatly increased.
Thanks to the ultra-narrow bezel and full-size keyboard design; it is 10% smaller than the traditional 14-inch notebook, almost the size of a 13-inch notebook. In addition, the heavy glass panel of the previous generation has been removed; which reduced the weight of the whole machine by 150g, and the current weight is 1360g; which is more convenient to go out and carry for a mobile office.
