Huawei MateBook X Pro gets new 10th Gen Intel CPUs and sexier design

Enhanced productivity seems to be the order of the day at Huawei’s Barcelona event as they’ve unveiled a slew of devices that look to take work on-the-go up several notches such as their Mate Xs foldable phone, the huge MatePad Pro slate and, of note, a revamped line-up of their MateBook X Pro notebooks that come with 3K touchscreens as standard.

While Huawei is best known for their P-series and Mate series smartphones, their notebooks are gaining surprising traction as well with their recent MateBook D 15 enjoying brisk sales in Malaysia.

This time around, the revamped MateBook X Pro sports a machine-hewn unibody sandblasted finish that’s just 14.6mm thin while weighing 1.33kg and coming in 3 hues – Mystic Silver, Space Gray and Emerald Green.

The chassis crams in a 13.9-inch LTPS touchscreen with 3000 x 2000 pixel resolution, 100% support for the sRGB colour gamut and a 91% screen-to-body ratio with a novel 3:2 aspect ratio that lends itself to mobile workers looking to view spreadsheets and documents. It’s still a dab hand at entertainment of course with a quartet of speakers to kick out some serious sound.
