Inside Huawei MateBook D 15 (2020) – disassembly and upgrade options

Quite a lot of storage options, and no memory upgrades.

1. Remove the bottom plate

Prior to getting inside of the machine, you need to undo 10 Torx-head screws. Then just pop the bottom panel with a plastic tool, and that’s it.


2. Battery

Interestingly, instead of the 56Wh unit, we saw on the 14-inch model, there is a 42Wh pack on this device.


3. Memory and storage

Here, we see two storage options. There is an M.2 PCIe x4 slot, which is currently occupied on our unit, as well as a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay. Interestingly, we didn’t find any connectors inside the packaging, so you need to buy them separately. By the way, as you can see, the memory is soldered to the motherboard and comes in 8GB and 16GB variants.


4. Cooling system

The cooling design here is very reminiscent of the one on the 14-inch version of the model. There is a rather long heat pipe, attached to a decent heat sink and a pretty beefy fan in terms of diameter.
