Huawei launches HUAWEI MateBook D 16
16-inch FullView Display: The productivity powerhouse
Led by extensive consumer research, Huawei has found that the desire for 16-inch lightweight laptops is on the rise. With a global move towards remote working and studying, there is an increased demand for large-screen, high-performance, lightweight laptops. The new HUAWEI
MateBook D 16 is set to meet and even exceed these demands.
The HUAWEI MateBook D 16 allows users to enjoy extended periods of screen time with protection and perfection. It features a beautiful and immersive 16-inch FullView display with a screen-to-body ratio of 90% 1 and novel 16:10 aspect ratio. Compared to a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio, the HUAWEI
MateBook D 16 brings a wider view with its 16:10 aspect ratio, allowing users to be more productive when working with web pages, charts, data, and written documents; and offers an excellent entertainment experience. What’s more, users can be productive on the move thanks to the HUAWEI MateBook D 16’s light metallic body 2 – weighing similar to a 15.6-inch 3 laptop at just 1.7kg 4 – making it highly portable.
Heavy laptop users can also be confident that their eyes are protected with the help of the TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light (Hardware Solution) certification 5 . This accurately reproduces the colours
of the images without leading to a yellow cast, while also protecting the user’s eyes. In addition, the display also adopts DC dimming to help users alleviate eye fatigue.
Unleash your creativity with powerful performance
The HUAWEI MateBook D 16 is powered by the 12 th Gen Intel® Core H- Series Processor that runs on up to -i7-12700H 6 , a TDP of up to 40W, dual channel RAM and a high-speed solid-state drive. This
allows it to handle multi-tasking and complex usage scenarios flawlessly and efficiently, such as data analysis, code compilation, opening multiple webpages, charts, or PowerPoints.
Despite this high performance, users can be sure the laptop won’t overheat even when tackling intensive tasks, thanks to the Huawei Shark fin Fan cooling system.
HUAWEI MateBook D 16 meets the various needs of heavy office workload and content creation. The innovative HUAWEI Metaline Antenna technology, also allow ensures users can enjoy stable
wireless networks. Even under weak Wi-Fi signals, the downloading speed is increased by 55%, while the lag in gaming and video conference are decreased by 57% and 67% respectively.
In addition, for a lightweight laptop, the HUAWEI MateBook D 16 has 1.5mm key travel and soft-landing design – inspired by space probes – to make all-day typing easy. The new individual numeric keypad enables users to work with charts, data, and documents more efficiently, while the physical shortcut keys allow direct access of frequently used functions for higher productivity.
Smart conference calls anytime, anywhere
As hybrid office working is gradually becoming the norm, people are in need of an immersive, safe, and efficient meeting experience in complex environments. The HUAWEI MateBook D 16 is dedicated to building a meeting space anytime, anywhere with its Smart Conference solution that features AI Sound and AI Camera. The crystal clear 1080P AI Camera makes video conferencing a delight, thanks to the picture quality and smart AI features.
During a video call, the AI Camera’s FollowCam adjusts the screen in real time to keep the speaker in the centre of the shot; so even if they’re moving around, you never get distracted from what they’re saying. The Eye Contact function uses AI to intelligently adjust to the user’s line of vision; so rather than seeming like they’re looking into the camera, their eyes will be looking into yours on the screen for a more natural and comfortable conversation.
One of the frustrating things about video calls can be having to tidy a messy room or being distracted by people moving behind you in a busy café. Virtual background lets you keep your privacy and concentration thanks to built-in static and dynamic backgrounds such as offices, coffee
shops or outdoor scenery. You can also choose an image to have as your background or use the AI background blur to distort what’s happening behind you.
HUAWEI MateBook D 16 features a quad-mic setup that is placed along the edges of the laptop, supporting sound pick-up from sources up to five metres 7 away from the device. The AI noise reduction algorithms can also reduce your background noise on a call, while Personal Voice
Enhancement 8 helps you focus on the speaker.
Super Device for a smart experience
The HUAWEI MateBook D 16 takes multi-device collaboration to a whole new level, thanks to Super Device 9 , bringing super productivity with one cohesive multi-device experience. It lets you effortlessly connect to other Huawei devices nearby and collaborate between them all.
Simply place your Huawei earphones, mice, keyboards, speakers, and printers close to the HUAWEI MateBook D 16, and the laptop will automatically discover them and provide a prompt for quick and
easy pairing 10 . With smartphones and tablets, it’s even more useful. Once you’ve wirelessly connected your phone, you’ll see its UI appear on your laptop screen, so you can operate it as if your smartphone
and laptop are one device.
You can access and edit your files, manage up to three phone app windows simultaneously, take video or audio calls from your phone through your MateBook, and even use your mouse and keyboard to control your smartphone.
Your tablet can be transformed into a drawing pad or second screen, with documents andimages shared seamlessly between the two. In Mirror Mode, the laptop screen is projected onto the tablet, with both devices showing the same content: the tablet can benefit from the laptop’s incredible performance, while the laptop can access the tablet’s stylus, making drawing even easier.
With Extend Mode, the laptop display is extended to the tablet, allowing the tablet to serve as an external monitor so you can scroll and browse easily between the two – perfect for making notes during a
class or meeting. Finally, Collaborate Mode lets you share content between the devices via a simple drag and drop, so anything left on one can easily be transferred to the other.
The HUAWEI MateBook D 16 can also connect to a HUAWEI MateView monitor, so you can see your work on alarger screen. The laptop also supports multi-device file management and AI search – the
former enables users to easily search across their connected devices, bringing a collaborative experience between laptops and other connected devices; while the latter supports quick search of files and images on the PC, the Internet, and other interconnected devices for greater flexibility.
Looking at the HUAWEI MateBook D 16’s large screen, lightweight portability, powerful performance, smart conferencing features, and seamless Super Device connectivity, it’s easy to see why this laptop is the perfect productivity device for the hybrid office era.
