MWC2018 is kicking off and as always, we’ll be posting announcements as we’re able. Earlier this morning, Huawei made two of their big MWC2018 announcements, the MateBook X Pro and the MediaPad M5. One of Huawei’s big talking points on both these devices is their 5G CPE capability. Both the MateBook X Pro and MediaPad M5 look to be handsome designs.
Here’s a quick overview of both devices:
Huawei MateBook X Pro
The Huawei MateBook X Pro is an ultra-slim, yet full-featured 13.9-inch notebook with an all-new 3K touch-enabled Huawei FullView Display and 91 percent screen-to-body ratio. Powered by an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5 processor, a discrete NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 GPU with 2GB GDDR5 and a long-lasting 57.4Wh (Typical Capacity) battery – making it one of the lightest and most powerful notebooks on the market.1 The Huawei MateBook X Pro features Dolby Atmos® Sound System and custom speakers that deliver breakthrough, immersive audio for sound to flow above and around you, making you feel like you’re inside the action.
HUAWEI MediaPad M5 Series
Ergonomically designed with a 2.5D glass screen and 2K HD, ClariVu 5.0-enhanced display, the sleek and powerful 8.4-inch and 10.8-inch tablets feature speakers tuned by Harman Kardon. Huawei Histen technology provides immersive 3D audio and fully supports Hi-Res audio for exceptional sound quality. The 10.8-inch Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro comes with an ultra-precise Huawei M-Pen featuring 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity to make note-taking more realistic, easier and effortless.
“At Huawei, we’re guided by a vision of an all-connected world, and to achieve that goal, we invest significantly in research and development to understand the ways in which people interact and connect with technology,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei CBG. “We’ve made it our mission to push the boundaries of what technology and innovation are capable of.
