Huawei Consumer Business Group Launches Huawei MateBook X for the UAE MarketSeptember 30, 2020
Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) today announced in the UAE the HUAWEI MateBook X, the latest addition to the HUAWEI MateBook line-up, transforming how consumers can work in this new era of mobile productivity. Featuring the series’ signature aesthetics, the HUAWEI MateBook X launches with significant enhancements to portability due to its Ultra-light and thin body that weighs just 1kg. It is packed with innovations for an immersive experience like the 3K Infinite FullView display with full touch screen and latest 10th generation processors and overall smart experience with Multi-Screen Collaboration as a part of Huawei Share.
Keith Li , Country Manager, Huawei Consumer Business Group UAE, said: “Under the All-scenario Seamless AI Life strategy, Huawei focuses on offering the most intelligent experiences in five major scenarios: smart home, smart travel, smart productivity, smart health, and multimedia. In the PC category, Huawei is taking the lead to steer the industry towards intelligent solutions.”
Compact, Lightweight & Stylish
The ultra-portable experience is redefined by the compact laptop, which packs everything in a lightweight body that is as light as 1kg and measures just 13.6 mm at the thickest part. Every interaction is a joy with the lightweight laptop, and with a 13-inch body, it fits easily in any backpack like a magazine, always at the ready for the next adventure.
The latest Huawei laptop’s slim form factor comes at no expense to durability. Featuring a lightweight aluminum uni-body, it is built with robustness in mind. An advanced spraying process is also employed to produce a smooth finish on the surface, adding elegant style to function.
Inspired by the iridescent mother-of-pearl and glitter powder, HUAWEI MateBook X elevates CMF design to an art form with two glitter-infused colorways: Silver Frost and Forest Green.
3K Infinite FullView Display
The new HUAWEI MateBook X is the first laptop to feature the Infinite FullView Display, realized with a borderless design that offers a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio. The unobstructed screen delivers an immersive experience whether the user is working, creating content, or binging on movies.
The display is also multitouch-enabled with gesture support, such as Fingers Gesture Screenshot, which lets users quickly take a screenshot by swiping downwards on the screen with three fingers, as easy as it is on a smartphone.
Huawei offers two eye care features on the HUAWEI MateBook X: Eye Comfort mode effectively filters out blue light emissions to provide eye strain relief during long sessions of use, and Brightness adjustment algorithms ensure a consistent viewing experience no matter if the device is used indoors or under direct sunlight.
The Multi-Screen Collaboration
The Multi-Screen Collaboration feature in Huawei Share enables seamless collaboration between smartphones and PCs. Once a smartphone is connected to HUAWEI MateBook X, the smartphone screen is integrated into the laptop with a picture-in-picture window. In addition to easy drag-and-drop file transfer, this feature allows the PC to directly open and edit files on the smartphone. Instant Hotspot provides one-step access to the Internet via tethering. And during break-time at work, users can catch up with family and friends by video or audio calling them conveniently from the laptop.
To facilitate a smarter mobile office experience, Huawei introduces new upgrades to Multi-Screen Collaboration. The improved Multi-Screen Collaboration not only allows you to mirror your smartphone screen to your laptop’s display but also lets you open up to three mobile apps at the same time for multitasking, resulting in greater efficiency and productivity.
Featuring a wide range of innovative technology, HUAWEI MateBook X is designed to inspire creativity on all fronts, anytime and anywhere. HUAWEI MateBook X is the first to feature a clickpad with HUAWEI Free Touch. The improved clickpad offers a more expansive space for navigation and creative expressions and supports haptic feedback for more tactile experience. The Huawei Share tag is now incorporated within the clickpad, providing easy access to the Multi-Screen Collaboration feature.
Power & Details
Inside, the sleek and portable HUAWEI MateBook X delivers the performance that consumers need to smoothly tackle day-to-day tasks. Featuring the 10th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor and up to 16GB RAM, the HUAWEI MateBook X delivers the essential performance to support a smooth experience across typical productivity and multimedia use cases. Wi-Fi 6 support ensures Internet connection stays fast and stable even in crowded locations, with speeds up to three times of Wi-Fi 5.
While staying incredibly compact, HUAWEI MateBook X still offers incredible battery life with its 42Wh (rated capacity) battery. This works seamlessly with Huawei’s smart battery management solution to support up to 9 hours of local media playback or typical productivity scenarios.
Improved innovations offer smarter experiences
Transform any location into a personal cinema with a powerful quad-speaker system with a split-frequency setup delivering rich 3D audio directly from under the keyboard. The sound system synergizes with advanced audio algorithms to virtualize surround sound, delivering an immersive experience with any music, movie or game. A dual-microphone array on the edge incorporates algorithms to support long-distance sound pick up for better voice capture that improves the user experience in video calls and virtual conference meetings.
User privacy is protected by the Fingerprint Power Button, which combines the fingerprint reader with the power button to securely authenticate user identity when the device is switched on, effectively replacing the login password on the Windows Welcome screen. Further on privacy, the unique recessed camera design affords peace of mind for users by embedding the camera into a key cap that is easily accessible and pops up only when required by the user.
HUAWEI MateBook X Pro
The HUAWEI MateBook X is also joined by the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro, which boasts an Ultra FullView Display in a sleek and elegant unibody design.
