HUAWEI Matebook X Pro

Over the last few years, Huawei has constantly continued to innovate in multiple areas, including design, display, performance and connectivity. Recently, the brand launched the new Huawei MateBook X Pro that is said to mark a new page in the PC industry with its innovative design. The Huawei MateBook X Pro includes new features such as universal colour consistency, super turbo technology as well as smart conference solution.

Design and display
Featuring the micro-arc oxidation coating process, a metallic body created out of magnesium alloys, the device does set itself apart from conventional laptops. Its thin metal body fits perfectly with the 14.2-inch real colour FullView display. Weighing approximately 1.38kg, (1.26kg in case of premium edition), the laptop is very comfortable to hold and will fit into any normal case. With a 92.5 per cent screen-to-body ration, the device features a 90Hz refresh rate. Meanwhile, the MateBook X Pro supports the P3 film-grade wide colour gamut. It incorporates universal colour consistency display technology. This enables consistent colour display across devices of the brand such as phones and tablets. Furthermore, it also provides better visual experience.

Equipped with a 12th Gen Intel Core processor, the MateBook X Pro has shown improved performance when compared with its previous generation. Powered by advanced Intel 7 processor and Core i7-1260P, the device supports 30W Performance Mode. To bring less power dissipation and smoother user experience, the MateBook X Pro is equipped with an end-to-end update feature – super turbo. Apart from analysing hardware status such as CPU, memory, hard disk, it also takes into account user scenario identification and smart system optimisation in real time. This results in smoother experience in video conferences and heavy-load office work.

Connectivity and sound
Huawei MateBoook X Pro supports fast nearby connection with other Huawei devices. When the brand’s keyboards, speakers or even printers are put close to the device, the laptop will automatically discover them and provide a prompt for quick and easy pairing. Additionally, the laptop features Thunderbolt 4×2 on the left, USB-C x 2 on the right and a 3.5mm headset and microphone 2-in1 jack x 1. For sound, the MateBook X Pro is equipped with six speakers. The four woofers feature a back-to-back woofers design to create great bass and reduce resonant noise. Equipped with a quad-mic setup that is placed along the edges of a laptop, they support sound pick-up sources up to approximately 5m away from the device.

To buy or not
With real colour FullView display, 30W high-performance, smart conferencing, AI camera features and multi-gesture touchpad, the Huawei MateBook X Pro makes it an excellent device for business professionals as well as college students.
