Huawei has been fiercely challenging the smartphone market for the last 2 years and the Chinese tech firm isn’t stopping there. Huawei is back with the new laptop family that aims to compete against the likes of Dell XPS and the MacBook Pro.

This year at Mobile World Congress, Huawei announced the new MateBook X Pro to their MateBook family. The main highlight being here is the incredibly thin bezels around the display with over 91% screen-to-body ratio and with lots of improvements across the board.

Huawei MateBook X Pro features a 13.9″ diagonal, 3000 x 2000 resolution display which is very similar to 3:2 aspect ratio usually found on Microsoft’s own Surface devices. With these incredibly thin bezels around the screen, Huawei decided to hide the camera into the keyboard of the MateBook X Pro which also might benefit in terms of privacy.

Speaking of performance, the new MateBook X Pro packs the 8th generation quad-core Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and a discrete Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU which gives a massive performance boost. It has one USB type-A port, two USB type-C with a built-in fingerprint scanner.

Huawei’s MateBook X Pro will be available in spring 2018 with starting price of €1499 (roughly $1800) for an i5 with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, ranging up to €1899 for an i7 with a 512GB SSD (roughly $2400).
