Unfortunately Huawei is not going to launch a flagship smartphone at the ongoing MWC, however, the company has unveiled a couple of other products that are equally impressive. Huawei has launched its latest laptop the MateBook X Pro. Needless to say, Huawei is taking a shot at the premium ultrabook segment with a “Pro” moniker. Design-wise the MateBook X Pro comes with thinner bezels and the company claims to have achieved a 91 percent screen-to-body ratio.
The MateBook X Pro comes with a 13.9-inch diagonal display and offers a 3:2 aspect ratio. Huawei has also built the webcam onto the keyboard of the MateBook X Pro. Crazily enough the webcam can be accessed by flipping a key on the keyboard. This effort by Huawei seems to be aimed at making the bezels slimmer and also improving on the privacy front.
The MateBook X Pro is powered by an eight-generation Intel Core i5 / i7 processor alongside a Nvidia GeForce MX 150 GPU. Huawei has embedded the fingerprint sensor into the power button and the laptop weighs less than three pounds. The company claims that the MateBook X offers a battery life of 14 hours and if this is impressive, considering that the same figures can be achieved in real life usage scenarios.
“The MateBook X Pro has the world’s first full-view screen in a notebook, featuring a massive 91% screen to body ratio, which is down to the amount of engineering work we’ve done to reduce the bezels around the display.” He further added that “With a 178-degree viewing angle range, if you’re working on confidential documents on a plane or train you’re going to have to invest in a privacy screen because everyone is going to be able to see what you’re working on – it’s that good”- Peter Gauden, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Huawei
Huawei MateBook X Pro will be available from the starting of this spring and will be priced at 1,499 euros. As far as ports are concerned the Huawei MateBook X Pro comes with two USB-C ports, 1X USB-A port and is available in a choice of gray or mystic silver color.
