Under Multi-screen Collaboration, the recently launched best camera phone with aesthetic design – the Huawei P50 Pro can be connected with the Huawei MateBook E to form a powerful Super Device. Once connected, the laptop can access mobile files, and open up to three mobile app windows while the smartphone can function as the PC's thumb device, enabling distributed folders and making cross-device file management easier than ever.

Moreover, users can connect the laptop with the Huawei MateView via cable or wirelessly to have an extra screen providing you with an immersive viewing space.
