Huawei is gearing up to introduce the Huawei MateBook D 16 and MateBook 16s with 12th-generation Intel processors in Europe. As usual, these laptops were launched in China first. However, Huawei plans to introduce them in Europe soon. It’s much easier for the company to make relevant laptops for Europe than smartphones. Anyway, new devices are still coming. The laptops run Windows 11 while the smartphones are running Google-less smartphones, and European customers are still reluctant to do that. Anyway, let’s focus on the two new products.
The two laptops were recently “showcased” at an event in Istanbul, Turkey. They were joined by the foldable flagship Huawei Mate Xs 2, and the new Huawei Nova Y90 and Y70 smartphones. The company also demoed its 10.3-inch e-ink tablet, the Huawei MatePad Paper, which was also demoed at the event. We don’t know if all these products will reach the European market, but the two new laptops certainly will.
Huawei MateBook D 16 and 16s
The Huawei MateBook D 16 flaunts a large 16-inch IPS LCD with 1,920 x 1,200 pixels of resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The image quality is impressive and brings 100 percent sRGB coverage, a 1,200:1 contrast ratio, and 300 nits of brightness.
Huawei is likely bringing the two Intel variants to Europe. There is one with the Intel Core i5-12450H and another one with Core i7-12700H. The higher model brings Iris Xe graphics, while the former brings UHD graphics. There isn’t an option with dedicated graphics, but there is a variant with a Ryzen processor. However, we don’t know if these will reach Europe. Anyway, the products bring 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM. There is also 512 GB of NVMe SSD storage. The laptop has a 60 Wh battery and two USB-C ports that can be used for charging and also works as DisplayPort if necessary. There is a USB A 3.2 Gen 1 port, 1 x USB 2.0, 1 x HDMI port, and a 3.5 mm combo headphone/microphone jack. The MateBook D16 comes with the 65 W power adapter and a USB Cable.
The MateBook 16s also brings a 16-inch panel. However, this one has a 3:2 aspect ratio with 2,520 x 1,680 pixels of resolution. it has an IPS LCD with 100 percent sRGB coverage. Under the hood, there are also Intel 12th gen processors. There is dual-channel RAM and NVMe SSD.
