While the MWC is all about mobile phones, Huawei, though has made a different choice by launching the MateBook X Pro. The new laptop from the company improvises upon last year’s MateBook X with eye-catching design and thin bezels. The bezels are so thin that in fact, Huawei didn’t even have a place to put a webcam — it has 91 percent screen-to-body ratio.
The 13.9-inch touchscreen results in a resolution of 3000 x 2000 pixels with an aspect ratio of 3:2. Like mentioned above, the thin bezels has made the company to shift its webcam to rather a unique position — beside the keyboard. Although we definitely appreciate the innovative thinking from the company, this won’t solve the awkward position of the camera while video calling.
Internal wise, the slim laptop has serious power. It’s rocking an 8th Gen Intel i5 or i7 processors coupled up with Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU with 2GB of memory. The RAM is of 8/16GB and has a 256GB/512GB of PCIe SSD. The MateBook X Pro has also a fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button. And for the I/O, it comes with 2 USB Type-C port (one supports Thunderbolt 3), and one USB Type-A port.
Interestingly enough, the MateBook X Pro will be shipped without any bloatware, unlike its phone. This exquisite piece of tech will be available from the spring with a starting price of $1842 in the U.S.
