Huawei Unveils New MateBook X Pro with Nearly No Bezels

Huawei is partly able to achieve this because it has tucked away the laptop camera beneath a single-purpose key right in the centre of the keyboard's function row.

When Apple relaunched the MacBook in 2016, it miniaturized the design of its existing MacBook Pro models, removed nearly all the ports, and covered them in a nifty matte coating.

The laptop has metal body design and it weighs just 1.33kg. It has a multi-touch, 3,000x2,000 screen.

The new notebook also has a 1MP front-facing camera; quad digital microphones and quad speakers; Bluetooth 4.1; 2x2 Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (2x2 MIMO) support; USB-C x2; a 304x217x14.6mm 13.9-inch display; and comes in mystic silver and space grey. That translates to a screen-to-body ratio of 91 percent, compared to just 82 percent on the MacBook Pro. To offer the best possible sound experience, MateBook X Pro features Dolby Atmos Sound System and custom speakers.

The smaller of the two has a quoted battery life offering up to 11 hours of 1080p video playback and it charges in less than two hours.

Russian Men's Hockey Team Reaches Olympic Finals, Beating Czech Team
Russian Federation hadn't reached an Olympic final since Nagano in 1998, where they lost to the Czechs , only managing a silver. Now they're in the Olympic gold-medal game for Germany , having advanced further than the teams from their home countries.

One click, and the camera pops out.

What makes the Matebook X Pro appear special are the number of subtle improvements Huawei's made to its overall design.

Like the original MateBook X, the Pro has a backlit, "spill-resistant" keyboard and touchpad, which Huawei claims is the largest you'll find on a 14-inch laptop.

The first thing you notice about the X Pro is that 13.9-inch screen. Sadly, Huawei skipped adding 3.5mm audio jack. A multi-purpose adapter supports USB-C fast charging widely used in smartphones, meaning users only need to bring one charger when travelling for even greater portability.

On the spec side, the MateBook X Pro is a beast.

The MateBook has an 8th Generation Intel Core i7/i5 processor as well as a NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU with 2GB GDDR5.

National Weather Service issues flood watch for Tioga County
The greatest chances of rain, according to the National Weather Service in Tulsa, are concentrated in southeast Oklahoma. Another round of light rain is possible Sunday night into Monday morning, with clearing conditions for Monday afternoon.

To create a screen that covers almost the entire face, Huawei removed the camera from the typical position above the screen and hid it under the F7 key.

My only other serious concern is that Huawei remained tight-lipped about one key detail: how much the Matebook X Pro will cost.

While you might not notice the camera the very first time you look at the MateBook X Pro, you'll definitely notice the screen.

The company also launched three new tablets.

Coming in two sizes, 8.4 inch and 10.8 inch, Huawei's MediaPad M5 measures in at just 7.3mm and sports a 2K display with a 2560 x 1600 resolution, which is pretty fantastic for a tablet. Furthermore, Huawei is equipping the tablets with a ClariVu display technology that promises better picture clarity.

When the MediaPad M5 Pro is plugged into a dock, it additionally switches to a special desktop version of Android, a bit like the desektop environment embedded into the Huawei Mate 10 Pro smartphone.
