Huawei MateBook X Pro 2022 – the Perfect Laptop
Huawei launches MateBook X Pro 2022 and Matebook E 2-in-1 laptops.
There has been quite a debate over this new rendition presenter by Huawei. Could this be the perfect lap top? Well, let’s see what’s inside.
MWC 2022 was the place where a lot of new devices got announced. One of which is the update to the already popular MateBook X Pro laptop. But, this time around the company might have refined it to perfection.
The 2022 version has a larger screen. It comes to 14.2 inches compared to 13.9 inches of the previous 2021 version. If you want to check the 2021 model, you can do so here.
As a result of the upgrades, this lap top is also a little bit bigger. Weighing in at 1.38kg, with 15.5mm and 5.4mm thick.
The brightness level is at 500 nit. But, the display is still 3K. The larger size of the lap top though, also brings slightly higher resolution. And that change is expected because the lap top display itself is a little bit bigger.
Maybe the more important thing here is to mention that the display refresh rate is 90Hz. This will provide the user with a lot smoother experience. The Screen-to-Body ratio is 92.5% which it makes it the highest ratio to any flagship laptop in the industry. The bezels are quite thin. A 6mm bezel on the top houses the web camera. This version does not have it’s camera placed at an awkward angle, like the last year’s MateBook 14s.
Because of the integrated sensors and web camera, this laptop supports Windows Hello login. This is a technology Microsoft uses to log in users based on a Facial Recognition. If you don’t want this feature, you can turn it off, and use the fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button.
MateBook X Pro 2022 comes with 90W charging. The impressive thing to note here is the fact that Huawei states that the Super Charge feature will get you three working hours from a quick 15 minute charge. Quite impressive.
The new chassis allows a lot better airflow and 100% improved heat dissipation. This is because Huawei moved from 15W to 30W TDP system for improved performance.
The updated chassis also brings six speakers in a “back to back” design with “sound field reconstruction” technology. As well as an improved trackpad with an infinity pool style design. It goes all the way to the edge of the laptop. It allows the user to control volume and brightness.
MateBook X Pro 2022 launches with Windows 11 and Huawei’s new Super Device functionality. This new Super Device feature allows you to quickly pair other devices with the same feature. Pairing makes it easier for users to collaborate on different devices much easier.
This amazing laptop is powered by 11th-gen Intel chips, up to Core i7. And you will also have to rely on the integrated Xe Graphics.

Quick Start Guide
All in all, this is a pretty powerful upgrade from the last years model. Laptops might not come any better than the 2022 Huawei MateBook X Pro. The only downside to this model is that it comes with 11th-gen Intel chips up to Core i7. And one other thing that might disappoint some people is the fact that there is no discrete graphic card.
Also there is a hefty price to pay for this beast. It will set you back a whopping 1,899 EUR/ $2,150 / £1,600.
