Huawei’s flagship laptop MateBook X Pro is launching in Singapore
It boasts an almost borderless screen, faster speeds and better performance – and has a hidden camera in the keyboard. You can get one from Saturday (Jul 25).
Coming hot on the heels of Huawei’s first laptops made available in Singapore in June – the MateBook 13 and MateBook D15 – is the tech company’s newest offering, the flagship MateBook X Pro.
The premium laptop, available in Singapore from Saturday (Jul 25), boasts more of, well, pretty much everything – from screen size and speed to performance.
The 13.9-inch Matebook X Pro comes with super slim bezels on all sides, so you enjoy a 91 per cent screen-to-body ratio. The screen also supports 3K resolution for an immersive viewing experience.
Powering it is a 10th Generation Intel Core processor, combined with the NVIDIA GeForce MX250 running on 2GB GDDR5, which promises a smoother experience when editing videos or graphics, playing your favourite first player shooter game or just bingeing on the latest K-drama.
The ultra-slim 14.6mm unibody metallic chassis is also lightweight – at 1.33kg – with a sandblasted finish that ensures you can keep a firm, comfortable grip on it.
And, if you want a splash of colour to inspire you as you work – the MateBook X Pro comes in emerald green, along with space grey and mystic silver.
Like in previous series, the MateBook X Pro has the 10-point touch support so you can tap on and drag your fingers across the screen as you would on a smartphone. The Corning Gorilla Glass and anti-fingerprint coating protect your screen from rough encounters and oily fingers.
The MateBook X Pro, which was launched in other markets earlier this year, also boasts a cool function that safeguards user privacy. The recessed camera now sits under a dedicated key on the keyboard, ready to pop up when pressed.
But does all this mean you have to remain close to a power source lest your battery dies after just a few hours? Not so. The MateBook X Pro’s 56Wh3 battery gives you up to 15 hours of power with regular use, 13 hours of continuous video playback or 11 hours of internet browsing.
Coupled with well thought-out touches such as a large, tactile keypad and optimised keyboard for a better typing experience, this machine is designed for those who need to stay productive while on the go.
If you’re in the market for something a little smaller, though, Huawei is also releasing the MatePad on the same day, which is the first of its kind tablet to support both wireless and reverse wireless charging.
It runs on the latest Android OS and EMUI 10.1 and also has the world’s highest screen-to-body ratio for tablets at 90 per cent.
Functions such as Multi-Window, Floating Window and App Multiplier make it easy to multitask and the Multi-screen Collaboration function means you can connect your MatePad with your Huawei smartphone – or the MateBook X Pro – to use both devices on a single screen.
The Huawei MateBook X Pro retails for S$2,698 while the MatePad retails for S$498. Both products launch in Singapore on Saturday (Jul 25) at Huawei Concept Stores, online official stores in Lazada and Shopee and at authorised retailers.
