Huawei MateBook D 16, MateBook 16s, MateBook X Pro, MatePad Pro: New productivity powerhouses

Huawei is ready to help you upgrade your office setup with a new lineup of laptops (plus one tablet). So, if you’ve been waiting to add a new working machine, it might be worth looking at this lineup.

Let’s take a quick look at what features on these devices you need to pay attention to.

Huawei MateBook D 16

Huawei‘s newest mainstream laptop is here. This large-screened device bears the same sleek aesthetic as its predecessors while introducing new technologies like a new eye-comfort Huawei FullView Display with a 90% screen-to-body ratio, a high-performing 12th-gen Intel Core H-series processor, and its reliable cross-device collaboration tools via Huawei’s Super Device. 

With a large 16-inch display, you have a bigger form factor overall. But Huawei promises it’s still relatively light, touting a weight of 1.7kg. The Huawei MateBook D 16 also gets a numeric keypad, a feature we don’t often see in laptops, alongside physical shortcut keys to make things easier.

It also brings other handy innovative conferencing tools to make it easier to conduct online meetings. The Huawei MateBook D 16 will try and keep you online with its Metaline Antenna, which promises a better signal conversion rate of 56% when compared to the Huawei MateBook D15 2021.

Huawei MateBook 16s

If the numeric keypad isn’t an essential part of your workflow, there’s also the MateBook 16s. This device runs on up to a 12th-generation Intel Core i9 H series processor. You get a Thunderbolt 4 port alongside other ports to make connecting with other devices or peripherals easier.

The Huawei MateBook 16s also gets a 1.5mm high-key-travel keyboard paired with a glass touchpad. Its 16-inch 2.5K display supports a 10-point touch and promises true-to-life colors through technologies like 100% sRGB.

The MateBook 16s comes with a 1080p Full HD camera for your video conferencing needs. It also has access to mobile apps through Huawei’s Mobile App Engine, allowing you to control your favorite mobile applications from the laptop’s screen. And like the MateBook D 16, it supports Huawei’s Super Device ecosystem.

Huawei MateBook X Pro

If a slim, powerful machine is more your speed, then Huawei offers the MateBook X Pro. It has that stylish metallic body in a package that’s just 1.26kg. However, Huawei doesn’t scrimp on performance with support for 12th-generation Intel Core processors and connectivity options like dual Thunderbolt 4. It has a 30W performance mode designed to handle more intensive tasks.

Of course, the Huawei MateBook X Pro gets Super Device and Mobile App Engine support to make it easy to use other Huawei devices you own with this laptop.

Get work done or enjoy your downtime with the 14.2-inch real-color FullView Display with 3,120 x 2,080 resolution. It promises universal color consistency across supported Huawei devices and supports a 90Hz refresh rate. Huawei proudly claims it has the first display to get Eye Comfort 3.0 certification from TÜV Rheinland.

Are you still doing a lot of video conferences? Like all the other new MateBooks, this laptop supports Huawei’s Smart Conference features with its AI camera and six-speaker and four-mic setup. That AI camera ensures you remain within the frame even if you move around while on video calls. The Huawei MateBook X Pro will come in white and ink blue color options.

Huawei MatePad Pro 11

Now, for a more portable machine, Huawei updated its MatePad Pro. The brand boasts how this slate is its thinnest and lightest 11-inch tablet to date, coming in at 5.9mm thin and 449g light. 

It has a screen supporting some great display tech, with its OLED panel equipped with a 120Hz refresh rate, 600 nits brightness, and 92% screen-to-body ratio. It is the first tablet to get Full Care Display 3.0 certification from TÜV Rheinland. That’s paired with Huawei’s Sound technology, promising you a great experience consuming content on this tablet.

Huawei also vows you’re getting PC-level multi-tasking on this tablet and support for productivity apps you need while working on the go. To ensure you don’t lose battery in the middle of the day, it gets an 8,300mAh battery. Of course, it supports Huawei’s Super Device ecosystem, allowing you to easily pair it with a Huawei laptop like the ones above. 

Its new smart magnetic keyboard is detachable, allowing you to adjust the screen angles to what you need and work in the way you want. The M Pencil comes in a new white color and offers better grip and accuracy than its predecessor.
