Huawei has taken the wraps off its first product at MWC 2018. The new device is the MateBook X Pro – an upgraded version in all ways over last year’s MateBook X.
The original MateBook X was known for its very slim bezels but the new Pro model takes it even further. Huawei says the MateBook X Pro has a 91% screen-to-body ratio!!!
The super thin bezels mean the webcam has to find a new home and Huawei has come up with a nice little trick. The wide-angle webcam now resides in the spill-proof keyboard. It is actually nestled between the F7 and F8 keys and it pops up when needed.
For security conscious folks, the good thing about the webcam’s new home is that there is no need for duct tape to cover your camera anymore.
The MateBook X Pro has a 13.9” 3000 x 2000 (3K) touch display. it comes with Intel’s 8th gen processor in Core i5 and Core i7 configurations. It will also be available with either 8GB or 16GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB SSD. NVIDIA’s GeForce MX150 handles graphics.
The MateBook X Pro is thicker and heavier (1.33kg) than its predecessor (1.05kg) and that is because it has a larger battery and packs more ports. The battery is said to last for 12 hours for. It also comes with a fast charger that gets you 6 hours of battery life after just 30 minutes of charge.
There are now two USB-C ports and a single USB-A port. It also still has its fingerprint scanner buried beneath the power button. It also has quad speakers and four long range microphones
It will be available in Space Gray and Mystic Silver when it goes on sale. Pricing and availability details are still unknown.
