MWC 2019 has now drawn to a close, and with so much showcased during such a short time frame it wouldn’t be difficult to miss an announcement or two, so we thought we’d highlight two of the best from Huawei’s MWC Press Conference.
Huawei Mate X
The Huawei Mate X was Huawei’s flagship device at MWC 2019, unfolding (yes, it’s a foldable) to reveal a stunning 8-inch screen. But it won’t come cheap, with the handset set to retail for around $2600 when it’s released this summer.
Under the hood, there’s a HilSilicon Kirin 980 CPU that’s fused with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage to deliver desktop-level performance on the move. There’s also a massive 4500mAh battery, which should see the unit through a fair few hours of use.
Flip the Mate X over and you’re greeted by a quad-camera — made up of a 40MP (f/1.8) wide, a 16MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide, an 8MP (f/2.4) telephoto and an time-of-flight lens, though the specification of the latter remains unknown.
As for the — AMOLED — screen itself, that measures in at 6.6-inches when folded in its sedentary state and has a resolution of 1148 x 2480. That expands to 8-inches, and the resolution increases to 2200 x 2480, when unfolded all the way.
Huawei MateBook X
Those in the market for a sleek laptop with high-end internals ought to look at the MateBook X Pro. Headline features include a colossal screen-to-body ratio of 91%, and a periscope-like retracting webcam and support for Thunderbolt 3.
The MateBook X Pro will arrive in two variants — one with an 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8265U, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, and one with an Intel Core i7-8565U, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage — when it launches in the US this May.
Both come with a 13.9-inch touchscreen, which has a resolution of 3000 x 2000. There’s also a fingerprint sensor housed in the Power button, and a mammoth 57.4-watt-hour battery that will offer up to 12 hours of web browsing, says Huawei.
