The Matebook X Pro released by Huawei is the outstanding mix of portability, performance, ports, and cost-effective which is better than anything else available in the market. In regard to the Matebook X Pro features Huawei launch was not up to mark coz it still has the same design and ports as compared to older versions with just faster processor and upgraded graphics card and Thunderbolt 3 port and storage capacity up to 1TB. With the Matebook X Pro, Huawei also announced the Matebook 14, the model of which was less attractive with again the same designs and lower resolution display and a bump in weight with some other concessions. The pricing information of the Matebook 14 is pending to be announced later this year. The only difference between the new Matebook X Pro and the one that came in last year was the logo on the laptop’s lid which now just Huawei wordmark instead of full logo mark as compared to the older versions. The features of the laptop is same with 13.9 inches, 3000* 2000 Pixel touchscreen with a full-size keyboard and 1.2mm key travel with a fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button. The weight of the laptop is 2.93lb. the 2 USB ports remain same through the Thunderbolt port has been upgraded to a full four lanes of bandwidth.

Huawei also said that it is capable of supporting external GPUs like Nvidia’s RTX2080. Inside, the processor options are a Core i5-8265U or Core i7-8565U, which Huawei claims are 10 percent faster than last year’s. The X Pro has either 8GB or 16GB of RAM, and between 256GB and 1TB of storage. The Core i7 version comes with Nvidia’s MX250 discrete graphics, a slight bump over last year’s MX150 GPU. The MateBook 14 is visually very similar to the X Pro, but it has a 14-inch, 2160 x 1440 pixel touchscreen, and a slightly larger body.

It weighs a little more, at 3.28 lbs, and trades the Thunderbolt 3 port of the Pro for one USB-C, one HDMI, one USB-A 3.0, and one USB-A 2.0 ports. Whereas it has the same fingerprint scanner, keyboard, trackpad, and pop-up webcam. Talking about the pop-up webcam, Huawei has kept it the same by embedding it in its keyboard’s function row as usual. The most controversial feature of Matebook X Pro was this pop-up webcam which was really unwelcoming for the shots for video calls but Huawei apparently doesn’t feel it needed to change it for this year’s model. Instead of the quad-speaker system found on the Pro, the MateBook 14 has two speakers on its underside. The MateBook 14 shares the same processor and GPU options of the X Pro, though it will top out at 512GB of storage. Huawei says the 57.4Wh battery is good for 15 hours of video playback or 10.5 hours of web browsing, which is slightly longer than the X Pro’s battery life. `Both models have a new software feature called Huawei Share that makes it easier to transfer images and other files between a Huawei phone and laptop. It can transfer data at up to 30Mbps, and the feature is triggered by the NFC chips in both the laptop and phone. If it seems to be a lot like Apple’s Airdrop feature, that means yes guys it is much similar to it. Both models should be more compelling than the Matebook 13 released this year, which had weird limitations in its USB ports and disappointing battery life. The MateBook X Pro and MateBook 14 will be available in global markets first, before coming to the US. The MateBook X Pro will cost 1,599 euro for the Core i5 model with 8GB RAM and 512GB storage; the Core i7 model with 16GB RAM and 1TB storage will sell for 1,999 euro.

Although The MateBook 14 will start at 1,199 euro for a Core i5 model, while the Core i7 version will cost 1,499 euro. Overall the features comparison between new and the old launch of Huawei are pretty much same with slightly better upgrades but the launch isn’t that attractive as expected except when it comes to price at which the product can be purchased with the exemplary features. Therefore, the product is good at the offered price.
