Tech giant Huawei has unveiled the MateBook X Pro, the company’s first-ever FullView notebook, at the ongoing Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Designed for business users and professional content creators, Huawei MateBook X Pro features a CNC machined metallic unibody with a premium sandblasted finish.
Available in Mystic Silver and Space Gray colours, the MateBook X Pro is only 14.6mm thick and weighs 1.33 kgs. With slim bezels on all sides, its Ultra FullView display achieves an impressive 91 per cent screen-to-body ratio. It is powered by the 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8565U or i5-8265U processor and the NVIDIA GeForce MX250, along with 2GB GDDR5 VRAM.
For cooling, the latest flagship notebook houses an intelligent cooling system that dynamically switches between active and passive modes for efficient and silent cooling performance. The new MateBook X Pro also features an intelligent filtering technology that provides real-time system temperature monitoring, giving the notebook a smoother fan curve, which ultimately leads to quieter operations.
The notebook also has Dolby Atmos Sound System. Plus, there is a massive 57.4Wh battery. Coupled with Huawei’s proprietary power-saving modes, users can enjoy its all-day battery.
For connectivity, the Huawei MateBook X Pro is equipped with a new Thunderbolt 3 port that supports two-way data transmission at a speed of up to 40Gbps. The presence of the Bluetooth 5.0 has doubled data transmission speeds, allowing it to have a four times wider signal coverage and eight times stronger broadcasting capabilities over its previous iteration. This means that the new notebook can be connected from a longer distance, with more stable signals.
One interesting feature of the MateBook X Pro is the upgraded Huawei Share 3.0 OneHop. This feature solves data transmission difficulties between Windows notebooks and Android smartphones. The Huawei Share 3.0 supports not only image and video transfers between PCs and smartphones but also two-way documents transfers. By shaking the phone and tapping ‘PC Huawei Share’ on the computer, a screen recording of the notebook will be sent to the smartphone.
It also has the 2.0 fingerprint power button and recessed camera to provide a convenient, one-of-a-kind experience. The former lets users quickly authenticate their identity on power-up, and the latter protects user privacy while maximising the display area.
‘As an ultra-slim flagship notebook, the all-new Huawei MateBook X Pro epitomises Huawei’s signature design and craftsmanship. Meanwhile, the breakthroughs in the touch-enabled Ultra FullView display, power consumption, performance and all-scenario connectivity empower consumers to stay productive anytime, anywhere,’ said Wang Yinfeng, President of the PC and Tablet Product Line, Huawei Consumer BG.
The new MateBook X Pro will be available from April 2019 in mainland China, as well as in Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
The Huawei MateBook X Pro in i5/8GB/512GB/MX250/TouchScreen configuration is priced at €1599 and in i7/16GB/1TB/MX250/ TouchScreen configuration at €1999.
