At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) introduced the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro, the first-ever FullView notebook. Combining extreme portability, a premium FullView display, cutting-edge performance and smart connectivity, the first HUAWEI MateBook X Pro heralded the era of minimal-bezel notebooks, and was a milestone marking the beginning of Huawei’s rise to prominence in the PC business. This year at MWC 2019, Huawei launches the newly updated the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro. It exhibits all the characteristics that define the flagship notebook: artistic design, innovation and intelligence, bringing the performance and all-scenario interconnectivity of the flagship notebook to new heights.
“As an ultra-slim flagship notebook, the all-new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro epitomizes Huawei’s signature design and craftsmanship. Meanwhile, the breakthroughs in the touch-enabled Ultra FullView display, power consumption, performance and all-scenario connectivity empower consumers to stay productive anytime, anywhere. The premium aesthetics, innovative technology and intelligence are engrained in the DNA of the MateBook X Pro Series, and the latest iteration exemplifies that heritage. It is our most powerful, portable and intelligent all-purpose device yet, and we’re excited to bring that to the hands of consumers,” said Wang Yinfeng, President of the PC and Tablet Product Line, Huawei Consumer BG.
The Breathtaking Ultra FullView Experience
The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro is made for jet-setting business users and professional content creators, power users that pursue—or demand—a high quality of life. On the outside, the new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro features a CNC machined metallic unibody with a premium sandblasted finish that gives the exterior a smooth hand-feel. Available in Mystic Silver and Space Gray, Huawei’s latest flagship notebook is superbly portable; it is only 14.6mm thick and weighs 1.33kg, making it the perfect device for any professional who values mobility and productivity.
Leveraging leading industrial design capabilities, Huawei created the Ultra FullView display. With slim bezels on all sides, the Ultra FullView display achieves an impressive 91 percent screen-to-body ratio on the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro. Better yet, Huawei boldly adopts an unconventional 3:2 aspect ratio for the display, which is much more suited for productivity and content creation compared to mainstream widescreens.
The Ultra FullView display is a 13.9-inch LTPS panel supporting up to a 3K resolution (3000×2000) and 100 percent of the sRGB color gamut. The rich colors and 3K resolution help bring content to life, providing a more immersive entertainment experience than ever before. Additionally, it supports 10-point multi-touch and Finger Gestures Screenshot to give users a new and more intuitive way to interface with their devices.
Ultimate Performance Drives Maximum Productivity
HUAWEI MateBook X Pro embodies the best of notebook innovation. Inside the lightweight and portable new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro is uncompromised performance with the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-8565U and i5-8265U. Equipped with NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 running on 2GB GDDR5 VRAM, the new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro delivers a smooth experience in every scenario from graphic and video editing, to gaming and multimedia content consumption. For cooling, the latest flagship notebook houses an intelligent cooling system that dynamically switches between active and passive modes for efficient and silent cooling performance, while the two HUAWEI Shark Fin Fans 2.0 feature larger fins to produce a higher air output. The new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro also features an intelligent filtering technology that provides real-time system temperature monitoring, giving the notebook a smoother fan curve which ultimately leads to quieter operations.
Besides being a powerful productivity enabler, the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro features the Dolby Atmos® Sound System. Huawei and Dolby codesigned the quad speakers, bringing exceptional sound experience with breathtaking, moving audio that flows above and around you. You’ll feel like you’re just inside the action while enjoying mobile entertainment on the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro in your leisure time.

The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro is equipped with a new Thunderbolt™ 3 port which supports two-way data transmission at a speed of up to 40Gbps. Travelers will be delighted to know that the new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro supports world’s fastest Wi-Fi on a notebook, which allows it to get better signal reception and provide more stable connectivity than ever before. Bluetooth 5.0 on the latest flagship MateBook has doubled data transmission speeds with a four times wider signal coverage and eight times stronger broadcasting capabilities over its previous iteration. This means the new notebook can be connected from a longer distance, with more stable signals.
All-Scenario Intelligent Interconnectivity
No tools are more important for work and entertainment than smartphones and notebooks, and transferring files between them is an everyday occurrence. For that, the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro features the upgraded HUAWEI Share 3.0 OneHop. This feature solves data transmission difficulties between Windows notebooks and Android smartphones. The HUAWEI Share 3.0 supports not only image and video transfers between PCs and smartphones, but two-way documents transfers as well. Screen recording, too, is easier than ever. By shaking the phone and tapping “PC HUAWEI Share” on the computer, a screen recording of the notebook will be sent to the smartphone. Besides HUAWEI Share 3.0 OneHop, Huawei has developed a proprietary Clipboard Sharing feature, which lets users share a clipboard across two devices. With it, users can copy content from one device and paste it on another nearby device, sharing one synchronized clipboard.
As a pioneer in smart device innovation, Huawei applies its technological expertise to its HUAWEI MateBook X Pro to deliver the best user experience. First-in-industry technologies like the Fingerprint Power Button 2.0 and recessed camera provide a convenient, one-of-a-kind experience. The former lets users quickly authenticate their identity on power up, and the latter protects user privacy while maximizing the display area. The portable, multi-purpose HUAWEI USB Type-C Power Adapter supports multiple quick charging standards—which is especially useful for frequent travelers as it removes their need to carry multiple power adaptors for the road.
Huawei remains committed to the high-end notebook market and delivering the all-scenario experience. Moving forward, Huawei will continue to integrate its leading smartphone innovations into its PC products, with an aim to further enhance the user experience and let more consumers enjoy the craftsmanship, innovation and smart technologies that characterize its flagship products.
