Huawei wants you to remember that its new laptop is more than a personal computer. We’re here to explain why Huawei classifies the new MateBook 14s as a “Laptop+” experience.
Here’s a quick rundown of what you need to know:
Pricing and availability
The Huawei MateBook 14s comes in two variants: i5 and i7 Intel Evo Platform. And these models are priced at PHP 68,999 (around USD 1,367 converted) and PHP 89,999 (USD 1,784), respectively.
It is now available for pre-order until November 11. During this period, you will get a freebie bundle worth PHP 11,498, including a pair of FreeBuds Pro and Microsoft 365. You can pre-order through any Huawei Experience Store, the official Huawei Online Store, and flagship stores on Lazada and Shopee.
Customers availing of the pre-order promo of the Laptop+ on the aforementioned online stores will also enjoy free delivery services. At the same time, those ordering straight from the Huawei Online Store may purchase on installment with zero interest for 12 months.
The Huawei MateBook 14s 2021 officially hit Philippine online and offline shelves on November 12. Customers purchasing their own Huawei MateBook 14s 2021 until November 30 may claim a premium freebie bundle worth PHP 11,498. This consists of a Huawei FreeBuds Pro and a Microsoft Office 365.
Access mobile apps right from your desktop
One of the potential biggest draws of the Huawei MateBook 14s is access to mobile apps via Huawei’s Mobile App Engine. You’ll basically get access to your favorite apps available on Huawei’s AppGallery.
A must-have for those in the Huawei ecosystem
With this laptop running on HarmonyOS 2, you can easily pair the MateBook 14s with Huawei tablets and monitors to make it easier to get work done. Multi-screen collaboration can turn your tablet (like the Huawei MatePad Pro 10.8) into a secondary display. The same goes for Huawei monitors like the new 27-inch MateView GT.
Huawei is also offering that gaming monitor for pre-order until November 11 for PHP 18,999.
Rock that fresh Spruce Green look
Huawei makes sure you’re new MateBook 14s is a device you can bring and show off. It gets a new Spruce Green color option that is subtle but also different enough to draw attention.
Immerse yourself in its display
The Huawei MateBook 14s is equipped with the brand’s 2.5K FullView Display with 10-point multi-touch support. It has a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio and 3:2 productivity aspect ratio, so you see more of the work you’re doing. Zooming in and out and selecting items is much easier with its touch support.
Huawei’s also brought in a higher refresh rate for this laptop (or should we say laptop+?). It rocks a 90Hz refresh rate, allowing for a smoother content browsing experience. You can still opt for 60Hz if you want to save a bit of power. But if what you’re doing calls for smoother visuals, you have the option here. This higher refresh rate complements the 2.5K resolution on this laptop, offering you a more vivid and accurate display.
