In its press conference held last night, Huawei unveiled the Matebook X Pro. Sounds familiar, no?  That’s because Huawei is not ashamed of aping not just the name but the look and feel of Apple’s Macbook Pro. And, from what we saw, specs-wise, it’s a product worthy of consideration by anyone who’s in the market for top of the line laptops.

Let’s talk about the screen. Huawei claims that it is the world’s first FullView touchscreen laptop with a 91% display coverage. It has a 3000 x 2000 resolution, 260 PPI, 100% sRGB color gamut, 450 nits brightness, and 1500:1 contrast ratio. This edges out the latest Macbook Pro 15-inch models’ non-touchscreen specs (2880-by-1800 native resolution at 220 PPI).

Just check-out that screen-real estate.

It’ll fit inside a Manila envelope for sure.

Comparing it amongst its fellow Windows counterparts, it leaves them to dust with not just the 10% gain in screen-to-body ration but with a 4-speaker

Matbeook X Pro vs others 640x480 - The Huawei Matebook X Pro could be the best looking laptop ever
Huawei claims that the Matebook X Pro is the “Best Windows notebook”. The tale of the tape shows that its a real contender but let’s get our hands on it first before saying that shall we?

Oh and one more thing, due to ultra slim bezel, they had to relocate the camera elsewhere.

The on-keyboard pop-up solution is cute but might concern the nostril-conscious.

The best part of the pop-up camera is that you’ll know that there’s no chance anyone is spying on you when it’s closed. The worst part? Aside from probably making people look smug due to its low placement relative to the user’s face, the  pop-up mechanism could be more prone to failure if one of the springs fail.

Huawei Mate X Pro Pricing 640x480 - The Huawei Matebook X Pro could be the best looking laptop ever
At P98,000 or more Huawei is making a statement that the Matebook X Pro is not for everyone but to those looking for the best in class.

As for the pricing, the lower spec variant (i5/8GB/256GB) is at  €1499 (around P96,000) while the top sec variant €1,899 (around P122,000). It definitely isn’t shy on taking on Apple even on the pricing aspect.

Will we see it in our shores? Well, China will get it in Q2 this year so it’s quite possible. If not, one could probably snag it in Hongkong. We’ll surely update you when we get our hands on it.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
