The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro is a full-featured 13.9-inch laptop with an all-new 3K touch-enabled FullView Display with 450 nits of brightness. It is powered by an 8th Generation Intel Core i7/i5 processor, a discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU with 2GB GDDR5 and a 57.4Wh battery which will offer 12-hours of battery life. To offer the best possible sound experience, MateBook X Pro features Dolby Atmos Sound System and custom speakers. Huawei claims that this quad-speaker system will deliver immersive audio for sound to flow above and around you, making you feel like you’re inside the action.
The power button also embeds fingerprint sensor which can be used for Windows Hello authentication. And it has got 1 USB-A, 2 USB-C and a headphone jack to suit all your needs. It has also got four built in microphones for 360 degrees listening capability. Huawei has developed a new software solution called Huawei Share which will allow you to share your media content across Huawei devices including tablet and mobile. Microsoft is also bringing their optimised Translator app to this device to instantly translate across multiple languages and devices.
So, what about the webcam? The web cam is hidden in plain sight as a spring-loaded button between the F7 and F8 keys. Yes, it will lead to a even more low-angle viewing experience, but Huawei claims that this wide-angle camera will offer some what better experience.
