In addition to the HUAWEI MateBook 16, a laptop for professionals, HUAWEI also introduced its MateBook 14s. HUAWEI says its new MateBook laptop “inherits the existing MateBook DNA” and brings a new aesthetic design, better innovative features and a smart experience.
The HUAWEI MateBook 14s features a slim body with sharp edges. On the front is the 2,5K resolution screen which has an aspect ratio of 3: 2. This is HUAWEI's “signature” FullView display with four narrow bezels and a high 90% screen-to-body ratio. It supports 100% sRGB wide color gamut and can display up to 1,07 billion colors. “The 10-point multi-point support allows users to be more efficient in managing tasks,” explains HUAWEI.
One of the main features of the MateBook 14s display is that it supports a refresh rate of up to 90Hz. Users can switch between high refresh rates using the Fn and R keys, and the display supports two refresh rates: 60Hz and 90Hz. MateBook 14s also supports TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light (Hardware Solution) and Flicker-Free certifications and also supports auto-brightness.
MateBook 14s is powered by the new 11th generation Intel processor which is paired with the integrated Intel Iris Xᵉ graphics card. For all those performance-hungry, HUAWEI has added a performance mode that boosts the CPU's TDP to 45W and can be toggled using the Fn + P shortcut. In addition to the 1TB NVMe PCle SSD, HUAWEI claims that the MateBook 14s "allows users to stay productive, let their creativity run wild, and easily multitask." The laptop also features the HUAWEI Shark finned fan system which provides efficient and quiet cooling performance.
The HUAWEI MateBook 14s is backed by a high capacity 60 Wh battery. The laptop comes with a 90W “pocket-sized” power adapter that promises 3 hours of battery life on a 15-minute charge. The AC adapter also supports HUAWEI SuperCharge for a selected range of Huawei smartphones and tablets. The versatile AC adapter makes packing for traveling much easier, says HUAWEI.
The MateBook 14s also features new HUAWEI SOUND technology from HUAWEI. “A four-speaker array is included on the new laptop, consisting of two tweeters and two woofers that produce powerful bass and crisp highs. The speakers support Huawei's sound field reproduction algorithms to create high-quality sounds from either side, ”explains HUAWEI.
The laptop is also quite portable. It weighs 1,43 kg and is only 14,7 mm thick. It is available in three colors: Space Gray and Mystic Silver, and a unique new color, Spruce Green.
