HUAWEI MateBook X Pro Features:

The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro features a skin-soothing metallic body that weighs as little as 1.26 kg. One of the main highlights of this laptop is the display, which is a 14.2-inch 3.1K (3120 x 2080 pixel) touch screen that boasts △E < 1 colour accuracy, P3 and sRGB colour gamut and can produce 1.07 billion colours.

The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2022 has Intel Evo certification and comes with a 12th Gen Intel Core i7-1260P or i5-1240P Processor and a brand-new hybrid architecture that bolsters the 4 Performance-Cores dedicated to intensive tasks and 8 Efficient-Cores that save power during daily work. It has 16GB of LPDDR5 memory and up to a 1 TB NVMe PCIe SSD to boost the data transfer rate.
