Back at MWC 2018 when Huawei unveiled the MateBook X Pro, it was announced in four different configurations with three of them having NVIDIA’s MX150 graphics card. Now, Huawei has released a fifth model that comes with the same Core i7 processor as the higher models but ditches the NVIDIA graphics card.
The new model has 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD but doesn’t have an MX150 GPU. Huawei says this model is targeted at those who want the storage but don’t need the extra 8GB RAM and MX150 GPU of the highest model. So practically, this is for non-gamers.
The new model still has a 13.9-inch 3000 x 2000 LTPS touch display with its super thin bezels and 91% screen-to-body ratio. It has a 57.4Wh battery which Huawei says can last 12 up to 12 hours for video playback. It also supports fast charge.
There are two USB-C ports and a single USB-A port for connectivity. It also has a headphone jack, four speakers, and four long-range microphones for Cortana. The keyboard is spill-proof and there is a fingerprint scanner buried under the power button. It also has a pop-up webcam that is nestled between the F7 and F8 keys.
The new MateBook X Pro will sell for ¥10,988 (~$1599) and go on sale on August 28. Those who pre-order and pay a deposit will get a free dock.
