Battery life? No problem on the Huawei Matebook X Pro

Battery life? No problem on the Huawei Matebook X Pro

Just imagine: Walking out of the house to attend a meeting with just your laptop in hand. Stopping at a coffee shop on your way to work for a bite and asking for a sandwich, not a power outlet. Opening your laptop at the end of the day to find you still have enough battery for the kids to watch a movie.

Most laptop users have never experienced these scenarios. They’ve become accustomed to battery-guzzling machines that demand power at regular intervals and never allow them to enjoy the freedom and portability that are meant to be a laptop’s defining characteristics.

Hours of uninterrupted use

Fortunately, all this is about to change with the brand-new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro. Designed with professionals and creatives in mind, the MateBook X Pro is fully equipped with all the technical specs you need to keep your business ticking over all day, every day – and that includes a seriously powerful battery.

The MateBook X Pro features a 56Wh battery, which gives you enough power to work regularly for 15 hours, watch videos for 13 hours, or browse the internet for 11 hours. It also offers unique systems for intelligent energy-saving and process management. Unused applications, for example, are automatically frozen on the back end so that they don’t use valuable power that you need for your current tasks.

Powerful in every way

What makes this battery extra impressive isn’t just it’s size, it’s that it’s been placed in a laptop that is ultra-slim, light compact and portable, too.

Weighing in at just 1.33kg, the MateBook X Pro comes with a 13.9-inch display that has been inserted into a 12-inch body. This Huawei has achieved by equipping the MateBook X Pro with Ultra FullView Display, which maximises the display area by minimising the distracting bezels on the sides. This borderless approach has enabled Huawei to miniaturise the laptop and offer improved portability.

In this ultra-slim body, Huawei has also inserted discrete graphics. Although this typically presents challenges in terms of stacking and cooling, Huawei’s stunning structural design and multiple rounds of optimisation have led to the creation of impressive, space-efficient slim cards. The MateBook X Pro carries an NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 graphics with 2GB GDDR5, which ensures a smooth and stable user experience and can connect with external graphics. This means the MateBook X Pro’s graphics are better than integrated graphics in terms of image processing and video editing.

That’s not all. Combined with all these processing capabilities – and in addition to its powerful battery – is the 10th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-10510U/i5-10210U processor that powers the machine.

Multi-functional power adapter

Of course, your MateBook Pro X will need to be powered eventually, and it therefore comes with a 65W USB-C power adapter. This thin and portable adapter works for multiple devices, including several other laptops in the MateBook range, including the Matebook D14 and D15. Huawei has also upgraded the MateBook X Pro’s power adapter so that it supports HUAWEI SuperCharge when used with certain phones.

Available in Space Gray and Mystic Silver, the MateBook X Pro is all about the seamless integration of performance and convenience. And so, what do you do with all this power and portability at your fingertips? You do what needs to be done – you learn, you work, you succeed, you play – without being hindered by the need for power. Welcome to a whole new world of freedom.

The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro is available now at an RRP of R34,999 from Huawei online store, Vodacom, Telkom, Incredible ConnectionComputer Mania and Hi store.

The HUAWEI Matebook D14 and HUAWEI Matebook D15, the two other members of the HUAWEI Matebook family, are available at an RRP of R16,999 and R15,999 respectively from the above stores.
