While the laptop’s design is similar to its predecessor, it comes with a few minor changes, including a faster processor, upgraded graphics and increased storage capacity. The new MateBook X Pro comes with a 13.9-inch touchscreen FullView edge-to-edge display offering  450 nits brightness and 3000 x 2000 pixel screen resolution.

Inside, the device is powered by either Intel’s Core i5-8265U or Core i7-8565U, which Huawei claims are 10 percent faster than last year’s. The laptop packs either 8GB or 16GB of RAM, and between 256GB and 1TB of storage. The Core i7 version comes with Nvidia’s MX250 discrete graphics, which is an upgrade over last year’s MX150 GPU.

Running on Microsoft Windows 10 operating system, the laptop comes with a feature called Huawei Share that makes it easier to transfer images and other files between a Huawei phone and laptop. As per the company, it can transfer data at up to 30Mbps, and the feature is triggered by the NFC chips.

The laptop features a full-size keyboard with 1.2mm key travel and has a fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button. It still has two USB-C and one USB-A port while the Thunderbolt port has been upgraded to a full four lanes of bandwidth.

Huawei has revealed that the MateBook X Pro will be available for 1,599 euro for the Core i5 model with 8GB RAM and 512GB storage while the Core i7 model with 16GB RAM and 1TB storage will sell for 1,999 euro.
