Printers are not only one of the essential devices in modern offices but are also gradually coming into the home. In the past two years, because of the need for remote online classes, many families have purchased printers to print homework for their children. After many people get a printer, the installation and setup process is stuck, because the traditional Windows environment to configure the printer is a real hassle.
Connect the printer through the computer, to find the corresponding driver installation, and then connect the printer in Windows, earlier printers even have a special interface, this set of processes down to an hour, during which if where the error will be additional tossing again.
The latest printers have simplified the connection process, but for most office clerks and parents, the process is still cumbersome. In the Huawei PixLab X1 printer, Huawei has realized the fast connection method of “near discovery and network matching”, after cell phones, tablets and other devices open Bluetooth, the card for connecting to the printer will be automatically discovered and popped up within 30cm. It takes only 1 minute to start the first print, which will not delay work or children’s homework.
The network matching process on the PC is also simplified, and the printer can be found within 1 meter by opening Bluetooth, followed by a similar network matching process as before. If you are using a full set of Huawei products, you can also connect to the printer through the Smart Life APP in Huawei’s cell phones and tablets, which can also be connected extremely fast, and the process of network distribution can be done within 20 seconds, so everyone can get started without worrying about any driver, network settings, and other problems.

Compared to the traditional printers that are not moving, the Huawei PixLab X1 printer has made great efforts to stabilize Wi-Fi. For the first time in the industry, Huawei has introduced a 3-layer interference protection network and combined it with Huawei’s low-power Wi-Fi technology, so that the Huawei PixLab X1 printer can be connected stably without dropping the network and can work immediately after receiving a print job after a long hibernation without rewiring the network.
In response to the problem of paper jams, Huawei’s PixLab X1 printer is designed with S-shaped paper paths and a rear duplexer, with a very low failure rate.
Of course, the Huawei PixLab X1 printer also has a masterpiece, that is, many people are worried about the problem of expensive consumables after using the printer, it not only achieves the separation of toner and powder but also the first drawer type powder cartridge, the replacement process is as simple as four steps.
In short, in a market where printers have long been mature, Huawei’s PixLab X1 printer is a glimpse of novelty.
