Huawei has launched the new HUAWEI MateBook 16s, the most powerful laptop among the MateBook Series. Thin and lightweight, the HUAWEI MateBook 16s is the perfect laptop for professionals and creatives that need a powerful device to work seamlessly while on the move.

Nowadays, people are living in a new office era that embraces remote and hybrid work, where flexible working is becoming better understood by the public. HUAWEI MateBook 16s caters to all consumers’ needs – from a vast display to powerful performance to smart experiences to exquisite design. Whether you work on spreadsheets or editing software, the MateBook 16s has optimised power and screen space to make your work life easier. Equipped with Huawei’s most powerful processor yet, the 12th Gen Intel Core processor, and a 16-inch screen, this laptop is the perfect match for every professional.

Professional large screen to optimise productivity

In recent years, 16-inch thin and lightweight laptops have become a consumer need. As lightweight laptops with large screens bring better visual experience, as well as better software operation performance, they are getting more popular in the market. In view of the rising consumer demands, Huawei has redefined the HUAWEI FullView display for laptops by creating four thin bezels to maximise the screen and make the most of the laptop’s real estate. Continuing Huawei’s classic design, the MateBook 16s’s bezels range from only 5.2mm – 7.3mm, ensuring that the screen-to-body ratio is up to 90%.

Not only is there a high screen-to-body ratio, but the laptop also features a more productive 3:2 aspect ratio to enable users to have a greater viewing experience. Compared with the same 16-inch display on a more economical 16:9 aspect ratio, the HUAWEI MateBook 16s offers more display area to allow for better productivity.

The laptop also boasts a 2520 x 1680 resolution HD display with 100% sRGB wide colour gamut, 1500:1 contrast ratio, 189 PPI and a maximum brightness of 300nits to continue to support professionals as they work. With 1.07 billion colours, the display delivers subtler and smoother colour transitions. Whether it is a graphic designer differentiating the light and shadows in an HD image, or an office worker looking at coloured graphs, the level of detail that can be seen on the HUAWEI MateBook 16s provides a more comfortable graphic viewing experience.

As a laptop designed for professionals, the HUAWEI MateBook 16s comes with a comfortable, specifically tailored keyboard. Looking at both key travel and tactility, Huawei’s keyboard designers have worked with the 2012 Lab to improve both aspects. The engineering collaboration has led to the introduction of the Soft-landing design for the keys where there is a cushion for the switches as they are being pressed, slowing them down before they land. This helps to maintain quality and a comfortable typing experience for long periods of time.

Powerful performance to handle multi-tasking

HUAWEI MateBook 16s is powered by the 12th Gen Intel Core Processor, which consists of up to i9-12900H, and comes with 14 cores and 20 threads with max, and a turbo frequency of up to 5G Hz. The performance cores (P-cores) maximise single-threaded performance and energy-efficient cores – the P-cores control the heavy-duty tasks, like real-time rendering and video clipping; and the efficiency cores (E-cores) provide scalable multi-threaded performance and efficient background task offloading when multi-tasking. Therefore, the E-cores help with rendering output, downloading tasks, and audio, and intelligently planning resources according to task requirements. Thus, the HUAWEI MateBook 16s has been maximised to be a powerful device to aid professionals and creatives in whatever task they have.

When it comes to graphics, the HUAWEI MateBook 16s uses the Intel Iris Xe Graphics to provide outstanding graphic processing capabilities – ideal for graphic designers, and photo and video editors.

To deliver the ultimate performance, the HUAWEI MateBook 16s uses the ultra-large HUAWEI Shark fin dual fan system that enables efficient, effective and silent performance. Refining every key component of the cooling system, from the air intake vent design to the heat-pipes and ultra-thin copper alloy heat sinks, Huawei has been able to bring significant improvement in performance.

Innovative Smart Conference solution for hybrid working

Now, more than ever, people are facing the hybrid working model, and need a powerful device they can rely on in the office, at school and when working from home. In view of this, HUAWEI MateBook 16s is dedicated to building a meeting space anytime, anywhere with its Smart Conference solution that features AI Sound and AI Camera. Equipped with a 2MP 1080p camera at the top of the screen, and an 88° wide-angle, dual microphones, Smart Conference has created an immersive, safe, and efficient conference experience that adapts to complex environments.

AI Camera’s Virtual background mode can let you upload your favourite images as the virtual background. Through the Eye Contact mode, eye contact is maximised for all angles, allowing both parties to communicate and concentrate during the video conference, just like face-to-face communication. FollowCam mode also enables you to be always shown in the centre of the video, improving the meeting’s attentiveness, as well as your professional image.

The AI noise reduction algorithms, one of the underlying technologies of AI Sound, can reduce your background noise on a call when Sound TrueVoice is on, while Personal Voice Enhancement helps you hear the speaker’s voice only; and Sound TrueHD helps to capture the details of your voices to ensure they are clear and loud.

HUAWEI AppGallery offers a wealth of Apps

HUAWEI MateBook adds system-level compatibility for mobile apps. Users can search for a wide range of mobile apps, including education, information, games, productivity and learning apps, through HUAWEI AppGallery. With just one click, users can install mobile apps and games on the laptop; and can also have two active apps running at the same time.

Smart experience to enhance cross-device collaborations

Super Device takes the HUAWEI MateBook 16s to a whole new level of multi-device collaboration. By simply bringing any of Huawei devices, such as earphones, mouse, keyboard, speakers, and printer, into close proximity of the HUAWEI MateBook 16s, the laptop with automatically discover them and provide a prompt that will allow you to pair the products quickly and easily.

Additionally, your HUAWEI tablet can be transformed into a pad for drawing on, or a second screen to share web pages, images, and documents seamlessly. When using Super Device between the HUAWEI MateBook 16s, there are three modes that have been optimised for use – Mirror Mode, Extend Mode and Collaborate Mode. In Mirror Mode, the laptop screen and tablet will show the same content, with the tablet benefiting from the laptop’s power and performance, while the laptop can take advantage of the M-Pencil connected to the tablet, to make getting those fine details in your drawing easier than ever. In Extend Mode, the tablet serves as a second screen, so you can scroll, browse and collaborate across multiple screens – perfect for working in spreadsheets and for making notes during meetings.
