The Huawei MateBook is due for a refresh this year. Before the end of 2016, an insider source had revealed that the next model will feature two new sizes. A tweet by EvanBlass (@evleaks) yesterday confirmed it and also revealed their codenames and models.
The Huawei MateBook will be available in three different sizes this year. The sizes were not mentioned in this new leak but we presume they will be 12, 13, and 15 inches. What the leak does reveal are the codenames for the devices. One is codenamed Pascal, another is called Bell, and the third one is Watt. When they launch they will be called the Huawei MateBook E, MateBook X, and MateBook D.
Pascal + Bell + Watt = Matebooks E, X, & D (/not/ respectively).

If you can recollect, Pascal was benchmarked recently and according to another leakster (@rquandt), it has a 15-inch screen. There is a likelihood that they will not only differ in terms of size but also in configuration. Pascal has 8GB of RAM and a Core i5-7200U CPU. The other two may feature less RAM and a less powerful processor.
If you look closely at the image below, the three models differ in terms of design too. The MateBook E looks more like a Microsoft Surface as it doesn’t look like it is permanently attached to the keyboard/kickstand. So its more of a tablet than a regular laptop.
The MateBook X and MateBook D on the other hand look like regular laptops although with different hinge designs.
