KUWAIT: Selecting your next laptop might seem like a daunting task as you have to consider so many things, including your needs and workload. Are you looking for a laptop with a big screen or do you prefer the smaller and lighter ones? Or, do you want something with loads of innovative smart features? Well, most people would go for the one with all the latest and greatest features if their wallets allowed for it. But with the launch of Huawei MateBook D 16, it seems like you can have your cake and eat it too.
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 new laptop comes with a comfortable and immersive 16-inch display, thin and light metal body, 12th Gen Intel Core processor, Super Device experience, and more. Here’s a deeper look at it.
A display that doesn’t tire your eyes
Huawei MateBook D 16 features a 16-inch Eye Comfort Huawei FullView Display. So, you know what to expect here; ultra-narrow bezels and a high screen-to-body ratio. On either side of the display are two 4.6mm ultra-narrow bezels, resulting in a high screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent. This allows the laptop to house a large screen in a compact body, delivering an immersive viewing experience. The novel 16:10 aspect ratio also aids productivity. Compared to the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio, the 16:10 aspect ratio gives a 10 percent taller display area allowing more screen real estate to view web pages, documents, and charts more effectively. The display also supports a 100 percent sRGB color gamut to show richer details and vivid colors for greater visual enjoyment.
Talking about eye comfort, Huawei MateBook D 16 display has TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light (Hardware Solution) certification. In addition, the display adopts DC dimming to help alleviate eye fatigue. Interestingly, the whole laptop only weighs 1.7kg with a thickness of just18.4mm, making it one of the sleekest 16-inch laptops out there.
The Huawei MateBook D 16 is powered by 12th Intel Core H-series processors, with the highest edition running on the i7-12700H Processor that has 14 cores and 20 threads. It offers a TDP of up to 40W, and the multi-thread performance is 97.3 percent better than the previous generation. That means even heavy tasks such as data analysis, technical drawing, and code compilation are going to run smoothly. All variants in the Huawei MateBook D Series come with a PCIe NVMe high-speed solid-state drive. This gives a remarkable boost in loading apps and games, ultimately delivering a smoother user experience. The laptop comes with two modes of operation. The Standard Mode is designed for users to handle daily office tasks, while the Performance Mode is suitable for performing heavy-duty work and professional software. By pressing the Fn and P keys at the same time, the user can easily select the optimal mode for the current tasks.
Super device delivers a multi-device experience
The Huawei MateBook D 16 takes multi-device collaboration to a whole new level, thanks to Super Device, bringing super productivity with a 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.
Superior video conferencing experience
The 1080P camera with an 88° wide field of view at the top of the Huawei MateBook D 16 screen is a huge step up from traditional 720P cameras. This is further enhanced bythe AI Camera smart feature that processes the video with AI algorithms at the systemlevel, adding video effectslike Virtual Background, FollowCam and Eye Contact, which are even supported by third-party video calling applications.
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 are moving around, you never get distracted from what they are 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.
