Along with two new tablets under their MediaPad brand, Huawei has also rolled out a new laptop with a particularly innovative design. The MateBook X Pro was just launched on Feb. 25 at the Mobile World Congress and in the short amount of time after, experts have been praising Huawei’s sleek and smart take on their new laptop. Last year’s update, the MateBook X looked a bit too similar to a model of one major, fruit-named competitor. But this time, the Chinese telecom company has proven itself able to outdo both Dell and Apple in their newest launch.
With only 13.9 inches, Huawei has managed to maximize the screen-to-body ratio, amping it up to 91 percent, an improvement from the already impressive 88 percent from the previous generation. Another notable feature is its camera located on the keyboard that pops up above the F7 key, a great feature for those concerned about others gaining access to their webcam without permission. It also has a wonderful upgrade in the audio department, with 4 Dolby Atmos speakers which could beat out Apple’s 2017 MacBook Pro speakers and the same number of microphones. Its other top-notch specs include 16GB worth of RAM, an 8th generation Intel Core i7, and 512GB of storage. A nice bonus to top it all off are the two USB-C ports and a handy USB-A connection.
According to LAPTOP, Huawei plans to release three configurations of its new notebook: One worth €1,499 with a Core i5 processor, an 8GB RAM, and 256GB storage space. A higher-level one at €1,699 with Core i7, the same 8GB RAM but double the storage with 512GB. The highest version is worth €1,899 with Core i7, 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage.
