Huawei shows new notebook and tablets at MWC
Huawei unveils new MateBook X Pro laptop and MediaPad M5 Series
Huawei Consumer Business Group has unveiled the MateBook X Pro and MediaPad M5 Series at an exclusive launch event at MWC 2018.
The MateBook X Pro is an ultra-slim, 13.9-inch notebook with 3K touch-enabled FullView Display and 91% screen-to-body ratio. Powered by an eighth Generation Intel Core i7/i5 processor, a discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU with 2GB GDDR5 and a long-lasting 57.4Wh (typical capacity) battery.
Huawei is positioning the Matebook X as one of the lightest and most powerful notebooks on the market, weighing in at 1.33kg. The MateBook X Pro features Dolby Atmos Sound System and custom speakers that deliver immersive audio.
The Matebook also features the world’s first recessed camera which discreetly sits on the keyboard – to activate it, all users need to do is press it and it will pop up, ensuring privacy when it’s not being used.
The MediaPad tablet features a 2.5D glass screen and 2K HD, ClariVu 5.0-enhanced display, with the first curved glass screen in a tablet device.
The tablet is available in 8.4-inch and 10.8-inch versions, with Harman Kardon speakers, Huawei Histen technology for immersive 3D audio and full supports for Hi-Res audio. The 10.8-inch Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro comes with an ultra-precise Huawei M-Pen featuring 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
“Today’s consumers want more: they expect their technology to be both powerful and adaptable – and Huawei is committed to creating devices that not only meet these expectations, but create experiences that make everyday computing extraordinary,” said Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei Consumer Business Group.
The MediaPad M5 Series tablets are available in two colours: champagne gold and space gray. The 8.4 inch device has two speakers while the 10.9 model has four speakers. The tablets are powered by Kirin 960 Series processors, with battery life of 5,100 mAh for 8.4-inch and 7,500 mAh for 10.8-inch.
