Huawei launch their Matebook X in Australia ahead of Black Friday

Huawei has finally brought their Matebook X Pro to Australia, with the 2018 notebook PC appearing on the Australian Microsoft store overnight.

There's been no official statement from Huawei on the product launch. However, the Matebook X Pro has received a rave reception overseas. In their review, the PC World US team concluded that "Huawei's Matebook X Pro is a very good ultraportable at an attractive price, cutting a few corners here and there but concentrating its efforts where consumers care most."

The portable PC features 8th Gen Intel Core hardware, ultrathin bezels, a 3K display and (according to Huawei) 15 hours of everyday battery life.

The Matebook X Pro also features a unique recessed camera that's concealed within the body of the PC until you need it.

Two spec-configurations of the Huawei Matebook X Pro are available:

  • Intel Core i5-8250 with a 256GB of PCIe SSD storage and 8GB of RAM
  • Intel Core i7-8550U with 512GB of PCIe SSD storage and 16GB of RAM

The Australian pricing for the i5 Matebook Pro X is currently $1699 (down from an RRP of $1899) while the i7 variant comes in at $2299 (down from an RRP of $2599). The Microsoft website indicates that preorders will ship out on the 22nd of November.

Updated: PC World Australia can now confirm that the Matebook Pro X is indeed a Microsoft exclusive.
