Chinese electronics giant Huawei launched a new high-end laptop on Sunday to compete with Apple's MacBook offerings, as it deepens its footprint in consumer tech.
The MateBook X Pro, unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, has a number of key features:
- A screen that takes up 91 percent of the front, meaning it has very thin bezels
- The display is also touch screen
- A power button that doubles up as a fingerprint sensor. A user can turn on the computer and log on to the device in one press in just over 7 seconds
- A design that is 4.9 millimeter wide at its thinnest point
One of the features Huawei talked up is a camera concealed in the keyboard. A user has to press the camera button on the keyboard and then it pops up. At a briefing ahead of the launch in London, Huawei executives explained that it was because many people are worried about privacy.
