Huawei MateBook X Pro will launch in SA on 1 December 2020


Huawei’s MateBook X Pro, the flagship notebook characterised by artistic design, innovation and intelligence will launch in South Africa come 1 December 2020. Through this new local launch, Huawei brings the performance and all-scenario interconnectivity of the flagship notebook to South Africans. 

In 2018, Huawei 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. 

The Breathtaking Ultra FullView Experience

The notebook is made for jet-setting business users and professional content creators, power users that pursue, or demand, high quality of life. 

MateBookOn 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. It is available in Mystic Silver, Space Gray and a new Emerald Green colourway, which comes in an understated verdant green finish that elegantly envelops the chassis. The lid of the Emerald Green model is accented with a golden Huawei branding, giving it an instantly classic look. 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 here. 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 13.9in LTPS panel supporting up to a 3K resolution (3000×2000) and 100 percent of the sRGB colour gamut. The rich colours 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 Fingers Gesture Screenshot to give users a new and more intuitive way to interface with their devices. 

Ultimate Performance Drives Maximum Productivity

Inside the lightweight and portable new Huawei MateBook X Pro you get uncompromised performance with the 10th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-10510U and i5-10210U. Equipped with NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 running on 2GB GDDR5, it 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. It 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 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. 

Plus, the Huawei MateBook X Pro packs a massive 56Wh  battery. Coupled with Huawei’s proprietary power-saving modes, users can enjoy all-day battery life, untethered by any power cable.

Join the MateBook Family

The MateBook X Pro joins a powerful range of MateBook notebooks in the South African landscape. Coming in with the recently launched MateBook D 14 and the MateBook D 15, the MateBook range is destined for greatness. 

One of the first places many laptop designs and developers cut when producing budget hardware is the processor and graphics card. See, there are plenty of them on the market that run just fine even if they’re not considered “high end”. Huawei didn’t quite see the point in cutting the power of the processor, even if the MateBook D 14 is positioned as an affordable piece of tech. In fact, the MateBook D 14 is fitted with the excellent AMD Ryzen 5 3500U and Radeon Vega 8 GPU.

The MateBook D15 performs equally well you have to realise that the power this notebook outputs is remarkable for how portable the device is. Within a chassis of only 357.4 x 229.5 x 16.95mm, Huawei has somehow managed to stuff an AMD R5AMD Ryzen 5 3500U alongside a Radeon Vega 8 Graphics GPU. To put those in simple terms, the MateBook D 15 is an absolute powerhouse designed to process multiple intense tasks at once while retaining the tight, compact design of a portable computer.
