Meanwhile, the Dolby Atmos® Sound System delivers an immersive cinematic experience no matter where users find themselves.
The Pro also supports HUAWEI Share 3.0 OneHop, a feature that solves data transmission difficulties between Windows notebooks and Android smartphones. HUAWEI Share 3.0 supports not only image and video transfers between PCs and smartphones, but two-way document transfers as well.
