While most of the tech world has slowed down due to the on-going global pandemic, it seems nothing can deter Huawei’s determination in providing updated and innovative tech for people to enjoy (and enjoy in their homes). Especially now with people working from the comforts of their homes, staying productive has never been this important!
That’s why Huawei very recently just a couple of flagship-level devices that should keep us on our toes and streamline our workload, one of which is Huawei’s top-of-the-line Notebook: the Huawei MateBook X Pro. This top-tier Ultrabook is thin, light and packs quite a punch in both its specs and hardware design.
Weighing only under 1.33kg, this portable powerhouse packs several key productive features like a full I/O set with a traditional USB Type A port and 2 USB Type C Ports (with one being the charging port). The device also packs a 3.5mm audio/mic jack for when you may want to hook your Huawaei MateBook X Pro to a wired headset.
Screen-wise, the Huawei MateBook X Pro packs a 13.9” IPS Ultra FullView Display with ultra-thin bezels that gives you 91% screen-to-body ration. Did we also mention that the screen is touch-enabled? Because it is!
Under the hood, the Huawei MateBook X Pro is powered by an Intel 10th Gen Core i7 -10510U processor, an NVIDIA GeForce MX 250 with 2GB GDDR5 / Intel UHD Graphics , 16GB LPDDR3 RAM, 1 TB PCIe SSD and a whopping 56Wh internal battery with 65W charging capabilities giving you extended juice to be productive the whole day.
With a slim form factor, Huawei was able to include 4 powerful surround speakers and microphones so you can enjoy 11 hours of continuous Binge-watching or go on to Microsoft Team Meetings without the need of a 3rd party microphone attachment.
Speaking of video conferencing, if you’re looking for the webcam on the screen, you may want to look somewhere along the keyboard area. Yup, similar to the Huawei MateBook D15, the MateBook X Pro also employs the same Recessed Camera so that you get a better (bigger) screen to enjoy. While we’re not big fans of this setup (because, really, who looks good at that angle) we have to give it to Huawei for creating a novel idea so that you can get more display on your device.
Rounding off everything, of course, is Huawei’s connected ecosystem. We’ve seen this with the MateBook D15 and how fast you can connect your various Huawei devices on the laptop and it’s no different here on the MateBook X Pro. With Huawei Share’s instantaneous sharing capabilities, drag and drop of files from Ultrabook to Phone and back is quick and painless.
We gave the MateBook D15 a pretty impressive score of 9/10 in our previous review, could the MateBook X Pro achieve the same? We’ll have to find out once we get our hands on one. But if you’re considering the get one, do realize that you’re stepping on flagship territory and you’re going to have to fork out a handful of cash.
