I had the chance to check out some of the things Huawei was announcing at MWC 2018. They didn’t announce a new smartphone, but they have a couple of new devices out. Mainly, the Huawei MateBook X Pro notebook. Check out the specs below
Huawei MateBook X Pro Specs

A follow-up to their MateBook X, the MateBook X Pro. The MateBook X Pro has a thin profile and is almost bezeless. Huawei claims the screen takes up 91% of the clamshell. Not bad at all. The 3:2, 14 inch screen has a 3000 x 2000 resolution. What I enjoyed about the build is, since the MateBook X Pro is so thin, they don’t have the camera above the display. Huawei installed a retractable webcam. You can find it between the F6 and F7 keys. The keyboard had full sized keys. It has, 4 mics 4 speakers, two speakers on each side of the keyboards. The speakers are tuned for Dolby Atmos. It’s available in Mystic Silver and Space Gray. Huawei claims the battery on the MateBook X Pro is improved over the MateBook X.
For a limited time, Huawei is including a year of Microsoft Office 365, along with the purchase. The MateBook X Pro also comes with Huawei’s MateBook Dock 2. It’s pretty cool you won’t have to get an extra dongle. Check out more pics below.
Huawei MediaPad M5 Series Tablet
Huawei also introduced their MediaPad M5 Tablet. It will be available in 2 sizes; 8.4 inch and 10.8 inch screen. The smaller tablet comes with 2 Harman Kardon speakers, while the bigger tablet has 4 speakers.
