Huawei is going full speed in 2020. 

Following the successful release of the Mate Xs, the P40 series and other tech accessories like the GT 2e and the Sound X this year, Huawei has officially launched the all-new Matebook X Pro, the tech giant’s flagship notebook. 

“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 PC and Tablet Product Line, Huawei Consumer BG.

He further elaborated, “The premium aesthetics, innovative technology and intelligence are ingrained in the DNA of the MateBook X Pro Series, and the latest iteration exemplifies that heritage. It is our most powerful, portable and intelligent all-purpose device yet, and we’re excited to bring that to the hands of consumers.”

What’s good about the new Huawei Matebook X Pro? 

In a nutshell, the Huawei Matebook X Pro is designed for the digital nomads of today: from jet-setting professionals to content creators that pursue and require a higher quality of life.

The Huawei Matebook X Pro’s 14.6-millimetre thickness and 1.33-kilogram weight is merely scratching the surface when it comes to its portability. The slim machine packs a massive 56Wh battery, that coupled with Huawei’s proprietary power-saving modes, allows for all-day battery life, no power cable required.

Yet, this doesn’t mean that its quality is compromised. The Huawei MateBook X Pro is equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphic card that runs on a 2GB GDDR5 for a smooth experience in every scenario — from graphic and video editing to gaming and multimedia content consumption.

If you’re worried about the device heating up, the flagship notebook houses an intelligent cooling system that dynamically switches between active and passive modes for an efficient and silent cooling performance.

Huawei has also leveraged on leading industrial design capabilities to create the Ultra FullView display: achieving a 91 percent screen-to-body ratio on the Huawei MateBook X Pro. In comparison to mainstream widescreens, Huawei has also taken a bold step towards incorporating a 3:2 aspect ratio for its display, aimed at the needs of productive multitaskers and content creators. 

The Ultra FullView display is a 13.9-inch LTPS panel that supports up to a 3K resolution and 100 percent of the sRGB colour gamut. It also supports 10-point multi-touch and Fingers Gesture Screenshot to give users a new and more intuitive way to interact with their devices. 

Here’s an interesting feature for existing Huawei users: the Huawei Matebook X Pro comes with a Huawei Share function that seamlessly incorporates your phone to your laptop. 

This doesn’t just mean wireless transfers from one device to another. The significance of this new feature is also about enabling seamless collaboration between the laptop and your smartphone.

Laptop accessories such as the keyboard, camera, microphone and mouse can now be used as peripherals of your smartphone for a more convenient user experience.
