Updated HUAWEI MateBook X Pro
At MWC 2018, Huawei introduced the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro, the first-ever FullView notebook. Combining extreme portability, a premium FullView display, cutting-edge performance and smart connectivity, the first HUAWEI MateBook X Pro heralded the era of minimal-bezel notebooks, and served as a milestone marking Huawei’s rise to prominence in the PC business. Today at MWC 2019, Huawei launched the newly updated HUAWEI MateBook X Pro. It exhibits all the characteristics that define the flagship notebook: artistic design, innovation and intelligence, bringing the performance and all-scenario interconnectivity of the flagship notebook to the next level.
Combining craftsmanship with technology, HUAWEI MateBook X features a CNC machined metallic unibody with a premium sandblasted finish that gives the exterior a smooth hand-feel. Available in Mystic Silver and Space Gray, Huawei’s latest flagship is equipped with a 13.9-inch 3K Ultra FullView display with 91 percent screen-to-body ratio. Additionally, it supports 10-point multi-touch and the world’s first Fingers Gesture Screenshot to give users a new, more intuitive way to interface with their devices.
An incredibly powerful device, the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro is powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 8565 processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX250 GPU with 2GB GDDR5. It also features broadband Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 and a more powerful Thunderbolt 3 port to support all-day productivity. Meanwhile, the Dolby Atmos Sound System delivers an immersive cinematic experience no matter where users find themselves.
Intelligent interconnectivity is at the heart of this new all-scenario experience. The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro supports HUAWEI Share 3.0 OneHop, a feature that solves data transmission difficulties between Windows notebooks and Android smartphones. HUAWEI Share 3.0 supports not only image and video transfer between PCs and smartphones, but two-way documents transfers as well. Screen recording, too, is easier than ever. By shaking the phone and tapping “PC HUAWEI Share” on the computer, a screen recording of the notebook will be sent to the smartphone. Huawei has also developed a proprietary Clipboard Sharing feature, which lets users share copied content from one device and paste it on another nearby device, sharing one synchronized clipboard.

The HUAWEI MateBook 14 is powered by up to the 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8565U and the NVIDIA GeForce MX250 and stays cool with a shark-inspired design fan that supports greater heat dissipation. The 57.4Wh (typical value) large capacity battery and Huawei’s smart power saving solution combine to ensure a long battery life.
