Huawei MateBook X Pro With FullView TouchScreen Display Unveiled at MWC 2018

Huawei MateBook X Pro With FullView TouchScreen Display Unveiled at MWC 2018 Huawei MateBook X Pro With FullView TouchScreen Display Unveiled at MWC 2018

Both displays pack 2560x1600 resolution panels, and in Huawei's well-lit indoor demo area, both were sufficiently bright for easy visibility. On the plus side, when you push the camera back down into its housing, it's acting as a physical privacy shutter. The Matebook X Pro is aimed at the Creative type and productivity-oriented users. Partly that's down to upgrades such as a touchscreen and the latest Intel processor, but also with a lower price that's created to undercut the MacBook.

The MateBook X Pro is set to be released in China, Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and Middle East in the spring of 2018. I didn't get a chance to run a colourimeter over it, and the representative on hand couldn't give me gamut coverage figures outside of "100% sRGB", but my naked-eye impressions were positive.

You have color choices of champagne gold and space grey, and both look as premium and attractive as the slates they're attached to. The question comes down to price - and Huawei has put the starting price at €1499 for an i5 with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, ranging up to €1899 for a i7 with a 512GB SSD (roughly US$1800 to $2400).

The Matebook X Pro matches the specifications of other top-end ultrabooks and MacBooks, and will be available in two different configurations at launch.

Matebook X Pro - Is it any good? Its 3K screen reaches nearly all the way to the edges of the laptop - filling 91 percent of the device's footprint, while the sandblasted finish and 1.33kg weight make for a laptop that as easy to look at as it is to lug around.

The FullView display isn't exactly something new to the laptop space.

All three tablets have 2560×1600 displays, aluminium unibodies and Kirin 960 chips with integrated machine learning. At full brightness it outputs 450cm/m² and has a contrast ratio of 1500:1.

It's also a touchscreen, unlike the original MateBook X's screen, and is covered by Gorilla Glass.

These aren't as good as you'd expect on a high-end phone, but from our limited testing they seemed to work well enough for what you'd want on a tablet. Again, cues have been taken from the MacBook here. Huawei has done an excellent job by adding a USB-A port to the laptop.

On the right, in place of the USB-C port on the old model is a USB-A port. If you go for the smaller version you'll get a far higher pixels-per-inch result as it comes in it 359ppi compared to 280ppi on the bigger device.

Huawei says the laptop will turn on and display the Windows login screen in just 7.6 seconds, and even faster if it's in hibernation rather than a cold start. The laptop comes loaded with quad speakers from Dolby Atmos.

Hopefully this time around Huawei will try to be more competitive, giving buyers more of an incentive to try out the Matebook Pro X.

Getting to the stuff inside, there are two models available.
