At Mobile World Congress, Huawei announced the launch of two new notebooks: the HUAWEI MateBook 13 and HUAWEI MateBook 14. The notebooks are Huawei’s latest ultra-portable lightweight 13-inch and 14-inch notebooks designed for the mainstream consumers.
Artistic, innovative and intelligent, the new MateBooks combine FullView display, high performance, extreme portability, great build quality and a stylish look to enable next generation productivity. The new mainstream notebooks also support intelligent interconnectivity between smart devices and PCs, revolutionising how devices can interact and connect with each other.
Larking Huang, Managing Director, Huawei Consumer Business Group Australia, said: “At present, Huawei has a strong portfolio of PC products and we’re excited to be adding not one but two new notebooks into the fold.
“Reflecting our commitment to delivering reliable, high-quality and advanced products to our consumers, the HUAWEI MateBook 13 and HUAWEI MateBook 14 are the perfect companions for people looking for notebooks that are high performing, lightweight and easy to carry,” Mr Huang said.
The FullView Display Goes Mainstream
The ultra-slim notebook market is experiencing rapid growth. In 2018, Huawei launched the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro, the first-ever FullView notebook. By offering a more expansive perspective and high performance, the stunning notebook set a new benchmark for flagship notebooks and redefined the industry standard for displays.
The 14-inch HUAWEI MateBook 14 is equipped with Huawei’s signature FullView display, with the top and side bezels measuring at only 4.9mm. The narrow bezels allow the small body of the device to accommodate a larger display, resulting in a class-leading screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent.
Powerful Processor Offers Solid Performance
The MateBook Series is a natural extension of Huawei’s all-scenario strategy. With its excellent performance and stylish portability, the new MateBooks are made for productivity on the go. HUAWEI MateBook 14 also ensures a smooth and stable experience across any productivity and content creation operations.
With high performance comes a need for effective cooling. Inspired by its namesake, the HUAWEI Shark Fin Fan 2.0 has a higher air output and cooling performance thanks to its large fins. The intelligent filtering technology monitors the system temperature and manages the fans in real-time, smoothening the fan curve and ensuring quiet operation.
Innovative Technology Elevates All-Scenario Experiences
The new MateBooks enable smartphones to share pictures, videos and documents in a snap. Also new to the latest HUAWEI Share 3.0 is the ability to share PC screen recording with a smartphone – it requires the user to lightly shake the smartphone, then tap HUAWEI Share icon on the notebook to start the recording and initiate the transfer.
In terms of device unlocking speed, today’s notebooks still leave much to be desired, especially when compared to smartphones. HUAWEI MateBook 14 features Fingerprint Power Button 2.0. The two-in-one button integrates the fingerprint sensor into power button for One Touch Log-in. Combined with BIOS optimisations, this innovative solution streamlines the device boot-up experience and lets users jump right back into action.
To provide the best possible audio quality, HUAWEI MateBook 14 supports Dolby Atmos®10, delivering an immersive cinematic audio experience wherever you go. Dolby Atmos® creates an amazing headphone experience with breathtaking, moving audio that flows above and around you. You’ll feel like you’re inside the action as sound comes alive with richness and depth and seems to move in a three-dimensional space. It also supports Amazon Alexa and Microsoft Cortana, two smart voice assistants, adding another avenue for users to interact with their PCs and enrich the all scenario experience.
The MateBook Series
While Huawei has established its brand with smartphone technologies, it has also heavily invested in R&D, and through the years it has created a wide breadth of high quality, innovative products. Huawei is committed to delivering reliable, high-quality and advanced products to its consumers and the MateBook 13 and 14 is a reflection of just that. The MateBook 13 and the MateBook 14 enrich and improve the all-scenario experience across devices, providing more users with the ultimate experience.
