Huawei launch MateBook X Pro laptop at Mobile World Congress

Huawei Mate Book X Pro

There's also an anti-fingerprint coating which should help reduce fingerprint marks when using the touchscreen. It's not flattering in the least, but moving to a almost bezel-less design meant the camera had to go elsewhere. The webcam is fitted above the keyboard as a pop-up between the F function keys. Huawei will also offer buyers a slew of accessories that are made to go with the laptop including the MateDock 2, Bluetooth mouse, leather case, backpack, USB 3.0A/M to RJ45 cable and anti-glare film for the screen. If you watched the press conference then you already know.

The Matebook X Pro is also the thinnest 14-inch PC with a discrete graphics card. It comes with a camera bump at the back of the tablet which means Huawei worked a lot on the camera to make it better than traditional tablets.

While the MateBook X Pro is attractive, and looks to be a fairly nippy machine, we're really not sure it's impressive enough to justify dropping the best part of two grand on, especially when you can pick up a MacBook Pro for the same kind of money.

Keeping with its focus on privacy, Huawei touts the device as the world's first with a "recessed" camera.

Both the Huawei Mediapad M5 models are similar in form factor and design, the only difference between the models is the screen size and the Pro model comes with an M-pen stylus for scribbling. It's a gorgeous 14-incher stuck in a conventional 13-incher's body, with a sharp 3K screen that occupies a mind-blowing 91 percent of the overall front area.

In terms of components, we are told to expect two different models - one with an i5 8250U, 8GB RAM and a 256GB NVMe SSD, and one with an i7-8550U, MX150 2GB GPU, 16GB and a 512GB NVMe SSD. It has two USB-C ports, one USB-A port, a power button with a built-in fingerprint scanner, and comes in either space gray or "mystic silver", which doesn't sound very mystic to me.

The hardware side of things, the MateBook X Pro comes with the latest generation Intel CPU with the intelligent cooling system.

Battery life according to Huawei should be 11 hours of video playback on the 8.4-inch model and up to 10 hours on the larger 10.8-inch one, but again that's something we'll have to test for ourselves at a later date.

The entire experience is powered by the largest battery capacity in any device of this size. Its USB-C Power Adapter 65W eliminates the need to carry multiple adapters for your various notebooks, tablets and handsets. To charge your phone or tablet, the charger automatically adjusts the voltage but offers quick charging speeds. The smaller 8-inch variant is going to cost you a hundred less.
