Next-gen Huawei MateBook X Pro now GTX2080-ready

Next-gen Huawei MateBook X Pro now GTX2080-ready

First and foremost, the MateBook X Pro has been upgraded from the Kaby Lake R processors used on the previous generation to the Whiskey Lake, so in terms of CPU, the changes are likely to be hard to notice, especially on day-to-day use. The Share technology also comes with a PC screen-recording feature activated by shaking your Huawei device.

Also like the MacBook Air, this model supports Thunderbolt 3 through one of its three USB-C ports, but it also offers a standard USB 3.0 port.

The X Pro was a looker when it debuted a year ago and the new one is just as much one: the same aluminum unibody design, the same dimensions, the same 13.9-inch touch display frame with 91 percent surface coverage, even the same weight down to the gram. These machines are upper-midrange devices meant to slot in between the X Pro and the D/E ranges.

However, the MateBook X Pro took eight months to (officially) reach the United Kingdom, and Huawei knows it needs to move faster.

The Matebook X Pro comes with a 13.9-inch screen has impressively thin bezels, which, according to Huawei, aims to bring borderless experience with 91 percent screen-to-body ratio.

That said, expect this MateBook X Pro to be tangibly stronger in the graphics department, with Nvidia's latest MX 250 GPU.

He is such a valuable player, playing a premium position, " Boone said before praising the switch-hitter's plate discipline. He agreed on January 11 to a $6 million, one-year contract and would have been eligible for free agency after this season.


The MateBook X Pro and MateBook 14 will arrive in worldwide markets first and in the United States sometime in the spring.

Huawei revealed its first version of the product past year and after strong sales said it would now release a new Matebook Pro X, Matebook 13 and Matebook 14.

Thanks to 57.4Wh battery, you can enjoy up to 10.5 hours of web browsing, 14 hours of office work, or 15 hours of video playback. The aluminum 2019 MateBook X Pro looks just like its predecessor, with the only difference being a slightly different logo. You can also use this to capture screenshots of your desktop and transfer them to your phone, and should you shake and tap you're able to record the active screen.

Pricing and availability details have not yet been announced, but we'll update this article when we hear more.

The MateBook 14 is the third member of the Huawei ultraportable family introduced over the past year. If you want more power than that, then an Intel Core i7-8565U is available along with double the memory and storage as well as dedicated Nvidia MX 250 graphics. It sports the same 8th-gen Intel processor, Nvidia GeForce MX GPU, Shark Fin Fan 2.0 tech and a 13-inch 3:2 FullView display with optional touchscreen support. The i5 version will cost €1,599. The buttons on the device are the same as before, while there's no headphone jack and a USB-C connector.
