Huawei MateBook X Pro 2024 laptop review - The 980-gram magnesium ultrabook with an impressive OLED panel

1,200-nit OLED and Core Ultra 9. The MateBook X Pro is Huawei's flagship laptop and the new 2024 model has had its weight reduced to below 1 kg. In addition, its IPS screen has been swapped out for an OLED touchscreen that can achieve brightness levels of over 1,000 nits and offers an impressive picture quality.

The 2022 and 2023 models of the Huawei MateBook X Pro belonged to the best 14-inch ultrabooks that money could buy. With the release of the new 2024 version, the manufacturer aims to set the bar even higher, combining an even slimmer magnesium case with a flexible OLED panel (still 3,120 x 2,080 pixels with a 3:2 aspect ratio), resulting in a weight that's been reduced by almost 300 grams compared to its predecessor. The laptop's new OLED touchscreen is supposed to reach a maximum HDR brightness of over 1,000 cd/m² and cover the AdobeRGB color space. We want to find out whether its slimmed-down build has really resulted in a better overall package, or whether too many compromises need to be made as a result of its lower weight.

Our test sample of the new MateBook X Pro 2024 is the high-end variant featuring the Intel Core Ultra 9 185H, 32 GB LPDDR5x 6400 RAM, a 2-TB SSD as well as the aforementioned OLED touchscreen panel for a current price of around US$2,600. Its introductory price (Core Ultra 7 155H, 16 GB RAM, 1-TB SSD) is currently just over US$2,200.

Case - Light-blue magnesium

The three color variants of the MateBook X Pro 2024
The three color variants of the MateBook X Pro 2024

The new MateBook X Pro relies on a slimmer and, above all, more lightweight case—in comparison to its predecessor from 2023, which weighed 1,260 grams, the new model's weight has been reduced to a mere 980 grams. You notice this as soon as you pick the laptop up; the device is extremely lightweight. Even so, its quality is still great and it continues to make use of a magnesium alloy. Its matte surfaces feel lovely and don't collect many fingerprint marks. Its bezels are narrow on every side, resulting in a screen-to-body ratio of 87 per cent.

Our high-end variant features the new color Morandi Blue and in comparison to the old model, this is a lighter blue tone. The base model, on the other hand, comes in black and you can also go for a white model with a black keyboard.

Its build quality is great but you'll have to make some compromises when it comes to stability as a result of its low weight. The middle keyboard area in particular can be dented noticeably, which additionally leads to some subtle creaking noises. Moreover, the bottom case cover is pretty thin and is missing a retaining clip in the middle. In this area, there is some air and you can provoke some rattling noises from the laptop. Even so, this shouldn't cause any problems during everyday use.

The display lid is also super thin and quite bendy. When attempting to twist it, we noted some noises that sounded like glue detaching. Still, this didn't result in any image errors thanks to the display consisting of an OLED panel. The hinges are smooth and you can easily open the laptop with one hand, but the screen wobbles ever so slightly when you adjust its opening angle (max. 135 degrees) or during more intense movements. You can also notice this when operating the touchscreen.

As already mentioned, the new MateBook X Pro 2024's weight of 980 grams is extremely light and is even lower than the LG Gram Style 14's 987 grams, whereby the LG is also slightly thicker. Its largest competitor from Samsung, the Galaxy Book4 Pro 14, weighs around 250 grams more but in turn, it is even thinner with a more stable construction. None of the competitors take up a very large space and despite its 14.2-inch panel, the MateBook X Pro is pretty compact. The supplied 90-watt power supply weighs a total of 236 grams including its USB-C cable.

Connectivity - Huawei has axed the headphone jack

The new MateBook X Pro 2024 has fewer connections compared to its predecessor. One of the two USB-C ports is missing on the side and the 3.5-mm audio jack has been done away with completely. The laptop's scope of delivery at least includes a simple USB-C in-ear headset. On the left-hand side of the device, there are still two Thunderbolt 4 ports and you still have the option to charge the MateBook X Pro 2024 on both sides. In addition, there is now a switch for the webcam shutter on the right side. Moreover, the MateBook can easily communicate with other Huawei devices using the familiar Super Device function, for example to exchange data.

Communication

Huawei continues to make use of the well-known Intel AX211 module with 6 GHz support (Wi-Fi 6E) as well as Bluetooth 5.3, whereas Wi-Fi 7 is not yet on offer. In our standardized WLAN test using our reference router from Asus, its transfer rates of approx. 1.7 Gbit/s belonged to some of the fastest and most stable within the comparison field. We also never had any connection issues during everyday use.

Webcam

In general, nothing has changed about the MateBook's 1080p webcam and in addition to Huawei's familiar AI functions, it now also supports Windows' studio effects (soft focus, auto-centering, etc). The Huawei software offers additional functions (virtual backgrounds, beauty filter). The webcam's quality itself is fine.

Maintenance

As was the case with the previous models, Huawei makes it unnecessarily difficult for customers to remove the bottom case cover. There are two hidden screws under the two rubber feet at the back. However, as the rubber feet are extremely tight and glued on, they are almost impossible to remove without causing damage.

Input devices - The MateBook X Pro still with a great keyboard

The new MateBook X Pro 2024's slimmed-down build has had no impact on its keyboard, as its key lift is still 1.5 mm and in direct comparison to the 2023 model, we noted no difference in how it feels to type on it. Thanks to its large lift and precise keystrokes, users continue to get one of the best keyboard experiences within the field of laptops. From a comfort perspective, it can easily compete with the latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon G12. Its layout makes sense—only the vertical arrow keys are a little on the small side. The power button is on the top right outside of the keyboard itself and a fingerprint sensor is also housed within this key. The keyboard features two-level white backlighting which unfortunately still can't be activated automatically.

Huawei also hasn't changed anything about the laptop's great haptic touchpad. Its feedback when clicked is produced by vibration motors, so you get identical feedback no matter where you tap and the resulting noise is very quiet and feels high-quality. Further gestures are available on the edges under the name FreeTouch. For example, the volume can be adjusted on the right edge, which is supported by a grid effect (brightness on the left, timeline at the top for videos, for example). Of course, the capacitive touchscreen can additionally be used for inputs, which also works without any problems.

Huawei has swapped out the IPS panel for an OLED display on the new 2024 MateBook X Pro, whereby its tech specs have remained comparable. The 14.2-inch screen still has a 3:2 aspect ratio and a resolution of 3,120 x 2,080 pixels. In contrast, its refresh rate has been raised to 120 Hz. Subjectively, its picture quality is impressive, as content is depicted razor-sharply and colors look super vivid. As on the latest OLEDs from Samsung, there are no raster effect issues when depicting light areas despite it being a touchscreen.

Its brightness, on the other hand, is where the flexible OLED panel from Huawei clearly sets itself apart from the Samsung competition—in standard SDR operation, the new MateBook X Pro already reaches an average of 624 cd/m² (Samsung currently ~400 cd/m²). In HDR operation, the difference gets even larger, as when depicting image excerpts, we noted a maximum brightness of 1,220 cd/m². When showing an almost completely white picture, we measured 911 cd/m², which is still very good (Samsung: max. ~640 cd/m²). These values are astounding and currently unrivaled within an OLED laptop. The OLED panel doesn't have any issues with backlight bleeding and its response times are super fast. In addition, it can adjust the brightness and color temperature automatically via a sensor.

We analyzed the panel using the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro2) while taking a look at all the different color profiles. It is a little tricky for users, as the profile Native (P3) is activated as standard and you have to use the shortcuts to activate the Pro Mode, which activates the color profile Photography (P3-65). However, the Pro Mode delivered worse results during our test, which is why we deactivated it again. The other profiles are available via the Display Manager, which is only displayed in the second context menu of Windows (right-click on the desktop -> Show more options -> Display Manager). According to Huawei, all devices come pre-calibrated and an average DeltaE-200 deviation of less than 1 is advertized, although we couldn't quite confirm this.

The profile Native offers a good basis without a color tint or significant colour temperature deviations. Its average color deviation is a very good 1.9 and only individual colors surpassed the important threshold of 3, achieving deviations of 3.1. Things look a little worse when using the profiles sRGB and AdobeRGB, as the deviations are then much higher. Furthermore, the AdobeRGB color space isn't covered in its entirety. Due to its high deviations, this means the panel isn't ideal for editing photos/videos. 

Using our own calibration (profile can be downloaded for free further above), we were able to slightly improve depiction compared to the P3 reference—with grayscale as well as colors. Still, this shouldn't be necessary for everyday use.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
0.49 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.25 ms rise
↘ 0.24 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 0 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.75 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.4 ms rise
↘ 0.35 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 1440 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 1440 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 1440 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17744 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The OLED panel uses PWM but again, the MateBook X Pro is able to clearly set itself apart from its competitors. It uses DC dimming at 240 Hz up to a brightness of 43 % and below this, at 1,440 Hz. This value is extremely high, so users shouldn't have to face any big limitations even when using the laptop at low brightness levels.

The OLED touchscreen is generally reflective, but not as reflective as on the Samsung Galaxy Book4, for example. Together with its high SDR brightness, you can easily use the device outside—even in bright surroundings. In the first photo, you can see quite clearly how well direct sunlight is compensated for (for a reflective display). We also have nothing negative to say about its viewing angle stability.

Performance - The MateBook X Pro with Meteor Lake H

The new MateBook X Pro 2024 relies on Intel's Meteor Lake mobile processors, with either the Core Ultra 7 155H in combination with 16 GB RAM or the Core Ultra 9 185H in combination with 32 GB RAM (LPDDR5x-6400) available. An option for 64 GB RAM or faster RAM is not on offer.

 
 

Testing conditions

Huawei offers two different performance profiles for the MateBook X Pro 2024: Balanced and Performance. We have summarized their respective performance and emission values in the following table. The MateBook always boots up in Performance mode by default, which is why we have also used it for the following benchmarks and measurements. In principle, Balanced should of course also be sufficient for everyday use, but it is very annoying that you always have to switch to it manually and the laptop doesn't remember the setting by itself.

Energy profile CPU TDP Cinebench R23 Multi Time Spy Graphics max. fan noise emissions
Balanced 80 -> 36 watts 13,199 points 3,280 points 39.9 dB(A)
Performance 80 -> 45 watts 15,270 points 3,719 points 46.8 dB(A)

Processor - Core Ultra 9 185H

The top-of-the-range model of the MateBook X Pro 2024 uses the latest Core Ultra 9 185H from Intel. This is the fastest mobile processor from the current Meteor Lake series with a maximum clock rate of 5.1 GHz. Within the MateBook, the processor can consume a maximum of 80 watts for a short amount of time, after which it balances out at 45 watts under permanent load. In view of its lightweight and slim case, these are high power limits that lead to correspondingly high performance values, with which the test device was also able to place itself ahead of the competition. Although its high performance can't be maintained for long, the laptop's continuous multi-core performance (-30 %) is competitive and generally better and more stable compared to the comparison devices. At least this is the case compared to other Intel competitors, as the Asus Zenbook 14 with the AMD Ryzen 7 8840HS achieves better performance values at 30 watts than the Core Ultra 9 does at 45 watts. This shows well how inefficient Intel chips are in comparison. The new Lunar Lake chips could help in this aspect, but it will take a good few months before the first devices are on the market and AMD's Zen5 chips are already in the works.

In battery mode, its performance isn't reduced and further CPU benchmarks can be found here.

System performance

The new MateBook X Pro did equally well in the synthetic system benchmarks, oftentimes placing considerably ahead of the competition. To be fair, you do have to admit that all modern laptops are extremely fast during everyday use and you won't really notice a true difference between the individual comparison devices. The MateBook responds to inputs instantaneously and we noted no system stability issues during the course of our test.

Storage device

Our high-end test device is fitted with the 2-TB version of the WD SN740. The M.2 2280 SSD is connected via PCIe 4.0 and delivers good transfer rates of over 5 GB/s. Furthermore, its performance remains totally stable even under longer periods of load, which is not always a given with fast SSDs and was still a problem in the predecessor model. One major and—above all—confusing problem is still the manufacturer's partitioning of the SSD, as only 145 GB are free on the system drive after first starting up the device. The remaining 1.64 TB are available on drive D. So if you are not careful during installations and downloads, you will quickly get a message saying that the hard disk is full. This is simply impractical and unnecessary. Further SSD benchmarks are listed here.
