The Huawei MateBook Family 2021, the latest iteration of Huawei’s line of laptops first introduced in 2016, is ushering in a new era in mobile computing.

In just a span of five years, the Huawei MateBook series has achieved so much, starting off with a 2-in-1 model as Huawei’s first-generation laptop to the first MateBook model equipped with an Infinite FullView Display in 2020 that brings to us the future of the smart office.

The concept of smart office, however, is truly upon us, with the new normal compelling us not only to embrace remote work but also online learning. Today’s scenario calls for the adoption of a smart life wherein smart devices enable us to explore and experience smarter ways to play, travel, and work, as well as stay fit and healthy.

Celebrating the fifth anniversary of Huawei’s MateBook Family, this year’s models improve on the enhancements introduced to its predecessors and sets a new standard for intelligent laptops. The Huawei MateBook 2021 continues to carry the DNA and the inherent elements that truly define a Huawei PC: aesthetics, innovation, and intelligence.

Moreover, Huawei envisions the MateBook series not as a totally separate line of devices but as a part of an ecosystem of interconnected devices. “The devices will be connected in the future no matter what kind of operating system or technology you are using. Huawei is trying to bring all the devices to one ecosystem and not isolated from one another,” said Cheng Lei, tablet and PC business product marketing director at Huawei Consumer Business Group.

“While we had already launched Huawei Share Multi-screen Collaboration two years ago, we are still trying to bring this innovation to a higher level. With the latest MateBook models, you can perform different tasks at the same time and it brings you a better multitasking experience. In the second half of this year, we will make our FreeBuds connect with our PCs,” he added.

With the latest versions of the flagship MateBook X Pro, the prime MateBook 14, and the mainstream MateBook D 15 model, the newest line of Huawei MateBook laptops brings to the table the benefits of intelligent computing at various price points.

Beating at the core of every latest MateBook laptop is an 11th Generation Intel Core processor with Intel Xe Graphics that brings significant performance gains to adequately support today’s applications for work, learning, content consumption, and content creation, whether you’re running the most intensive among them or running several of them at the same time.

Dual Huawei Shark Fin Fans

Huawei has equipped the new MateBook laptops with Dual Huawei Shark fin fans to further improve the thermal efficiency of Intel’s latest processors.

Huawei Eye Comfort

Knowing that you would spend long hours working, studying, or playing with your laptop during this pandemic, Huawei MateBook’s FullView Display also features Huawei Eye Comfort to prevent eye strain. The TÜV Rheinland-certified matte display dispels ambient glare, emits low blue light, and is flicker-free for eye protection.

The Recessed Camera, meanwhile, enables you to manually launch the laptop’s web camera by simply pressing the designated key on the keyboard. Press it again to retract the camera when not in use to prevent the possibility of webcam spying.
