How Huawei plans to fight webcam hackers!


Huawei’s response to the tape-over-your-webcam phenomenon is nothing if not very James-Bondian. Hidden discreetly in your keyboard, right between f6 and f7, is a bogey key. Press it and the key rises above the surface to reveal a webcam pointing at you. Press the camera down and you’re protected from people remotely hacking into your camera and your life.

The physically moving webcam would ensure you don’t have a camera pointing at you without you knowing what’s happening. When the camera docks into the keyboard, it doesn’t film anything (or rather, anything of consequence). What this also enabled Huawei’s MateBook X Pro to do is follow the rising trend of obliterating bezels around screens. Removing the webcam from the top of the screen, the MateBook X Pro as a result, has a 91% screen to body ratio, with the upper half having a bezel only at the bottom end (where the hinge begins).

However, there are a few complaints that the camera, while looking super cool, captures you from a rather unflattering angle. I believe the term “nasalcam” was coined for this purpose. A small price to pay for protecting your privacy??
