It has been nearly 40 years since the first personal computer was officially introduced onto the market. From the earliest development of VGA 640 x 480 black and white screens up to today, laptops have made significant strides in terms of both screen resolution and colour, reaching an astoundingly life-like level of detail and clarity. However, the frame around notebook screens has largely been excluded from this progress and development, with new designs repeatedly failing to address the conventional bezel design which makes three sides narrow and one side thick. The thick, clumsy-looking bezels to the display has become deeply engrained in notebook design.
Of course, it’s not that people didn’t want to break through this barrier.
Huawei applied its forward-thinking technological developments of smartphone design on PC products, to create the industry’s first FullView notebook. Huawei alone took advantage of its powerful stacking technology used on smartphone products to innovate the narrow screen driver plate design that could facilitate a narrower lower bezel. This was the ultimate illustration of the MateBook family’s unwavering drive to make true FullView Display a reality. Huawei recently announced the release of its next-generation HUAWEI MateBook X notebook with Infinite FullView Display, the first in the industry to introduce the new concept of a “floating FullView Display”. This isn’t just about the way the laptop looks, it affects the way it works too. So, what exactly is it that makes the display “float”?
Traditional notebooks have a very distinctive metal edge that wraps around the display, limiting the view of the screen to a certain range and making it difficult to progress in terms of design. The new HUAWEI MateBook X has broken away from this traditional thinking, eliminating the metal edges completely to make it appear as if the screen is literally floating before the user. It also allows the laptop to achieve a screen-to-body ratio of over 90%.
As a productivity tool, the HUAWEI MateBook X features a 3K LTPS display with a resolution of 3000 x 2000. Even with this increased pixel density of modern displays, it can be frustrating to still have to constantly zoom in and out of a traditional 1080p display to see small details clearly. The new HUAWEI MateBook X boasts 3K image quality, allowing users to see every detail of an image with greater ease. Don’t underestimate the significance of this upgrade. If you’re an avid photographer, this would allow you to peruse between the HD previews of all your photos and see the images clearly without having to waste time opening up every individual file one by one.
The HUAWEI MateBook X has a distinctive 3:2 ratio screen which has been designed to allow greater productivity. Whether you are browsing webpages, editing documents or viewing pictures, you can display more content on the same screen, providing a more expanded view and a greater level of immersion than the PC industry has ever seen.
The HUAWEI MateBook X also features an advanced 10-point touchscreen alongside Multi-Screen Collaboration capabilities, making cross-device interaction between smartphones and PCs simpler and faster. By sharing your phone’s screen directly with the PC, you now have two systems at your fingertips on one screen. All it takes to transfer files between devices is a simple drag and drop across the screen, giving the MateBook X almost the same degree of easy control as a smartphone, turning previously complex functions into something as quick as the swipe of a finger. This means if you need to stay working on the go, there’s now no need to clutter your hands with multiple devices.
Do your eyes ever feel tired and sore from staring at a screen all day long? Well, it’s all down to harmful blue light. You may wear glasses at work that protect your eyes from blue light, or you could take eye drops. Some people keep succulents around their desk to soothe themselves and others choose to sit feet away from their screen to avoid the light emissions. With the MateBook X, Huawei decided to stop the problem at its source, using a combination of hardware and software methods to create a new Eye Comfort Mode.
Huawei engineers transplanted the eye protection technology used in Huawei smartphones and tablets, conducting specialist research to deliver the best level of eye protection at the most fundamental level of hardware. In terms of software, they developed an algorithm, which reduces the output of blue light components from the screen’s RGB display, thereby reducing harmful blue light at the source and effectively ensuring better eye comfort for Huawei users. Even staying late at the office to work on a proposal, you won’t have to worry about showing up the next morning with dark circles. The screen protects your eyes from visual fatigue and myopia even after prolonged periods of work.
The new HUAWEI MateBook X is the kind of transformative push that only comes along rarely in the industry, altering the development of PC products and consequently changing the way we live and work. The MateBook X family has already given us a FullView Display with a full range of functions and, in the future, we can expect the series to deliver an even more exciting range of game-changing features.
