At Mobile World Congress (MWC), Huawei has unveiled its latest product in the MateBook line, the MateBook X Pro. This new device builds on to previous members within the MateBook family, but brings some additional perks.

The main difference with the MateBook X Pro from last year’s MateBook X is that there’s now a webcam between the F6 and F7 keys. Pressing on to it pops-up the webcam. This helps alleviate some of the bezel around the screen, delivering a 91% screen-to-body ratio.

Speaking of the screen, the display size comes in slightly larger at 13.9 inches and a resolution of 3,000 x 2,000 pixels. Touchscreen support is available.

It includes Intel’s Kaby Lake R eight-generation processors, available in i5 and i7. A significant performance boost is brought across by the fact that these chips are quad-core, instead of dual-core like in the MateBook X. A dedicated GPU is also included, the Nvidia GeForce MX150.

For sound, Dolby Atmos is available on the MateBook X Pro too, but coming in at Gen 2, compared to Gen 1 in its predecessor.

Battery life of up to 15 hours is expected on a 57.4Wh battery.

Pricing is not yet available for the device, so stay tuned for further details on that.
