Huawei announced a collection of new PCs and devices at Mobile World Congress, including a new flagship laptop and its first detachable 2-in-1 PC running Windows 11. Many of the devices work together, such as allowing people to share a screen across separate pieces of hardware or easily sharing files. Huawei refers to this overall theme as forming a Super Device, which has been in the works for years but is expanded with the latest gadgets from the company.
The 2022 version of the flagship MateBook X Pro features a 14.2-inch Real Color FullView Display with 3.1K resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The screen can reach up to 500 nits of brightness and covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. That display is surrounded by thin bezels, which allow the laptop to have a 92.5% screen-to-body ratio. The MateBook X Pro is also certified by TÜV Rheinland for color accuracy.
We last reviewed the MateBook X Pro in September 2021.
The refreshed MateBook X Pro runs on an 11th Gen Intel Core processor. Audio on the device should be solid, as the laptop has a six-speaker setup that supports spatial sound.
Huawei also introduced its first detachable 2-in-1 PC running Windows 11 this week, the MateBook E. The new convertible looks similar to the Surface Pro 8 or the newly announced Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5i. The MateBook E has a 12.6-inch display that can reach up to 600 nits of brightness. The previous 2019 MateBook E was a Qualcomm Snapdragon tablet PC.
You'll be able to use a variety of input methods with the MateBook E, including a detachable keyboard or the Huawei M-Pencil, which supports up to 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
The MateBook E weighs 709g and is only 7.99mm thick, making it one of the thinnest and lightest Windows tablets. Inside, it runs on an 11th Gen Intel Core processor and Intel Iris Xe graphics. The 2-in-1 comes with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage as well.
In another first, Huawei announced its MateStation X. It's an All-in-One PC with a 28.2-inch 4K+ display. The device has a 92% screen-to-body ratio and has an anti-reflective layer, which should help reduce glare in offices. The MateStation X supports 10-point multi-touch.
The MateStation X runs on an AMD Ryzen 5000H mobile processor and has 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.
The MateBook X Pro starts at €1,899, while the MateBook E has a starting price of €649. The MateStation X costs €2,199. Huawei has not shared release dates for any of its new pieces of hardware at this time.
As is the case with other Huawei products, it will likely be difficult to get any of the new devices in the United States. They will likely be primarily available in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
