2021 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro : Key Features

Let’s take a look at its key features…

13.9-inch FullView Display

The 2021 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro comes with a 13.9-inch FullView Display, with a 3K resolution of 3000 x 2000 pixels.

This is a premium 10-point touch display, with a maximum brightness of 450 nits; and a decent colour gamut of 100% sRGB.

It also has vey narrow bezels which give it a 91% screen-to-body ratio – hence the name, FullView Display.

Performance

It is powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor with integrated Intel Xe Graphics.

It comes with 16 GB of LPDDR4x memory, and a fast PCIe NVMe SSD with 512 GB of storage.

Battery + Charging

All that is powered by a large 56 Whr battery, which is paired with a compact 65 watt USB Type C fast charger.

This charger can be used to charge other USB Type C devices, and supports HUAWEI SuperCharge for certain HUAWEI smartphones.

Connectivity + Ports

The 2021 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro has Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity built-in, but comes with the same ports as the 2020 version.

On the left side, you will find two USB Type C ports, with a 3.5 mm audio port. The USB C ports can output to external 4K displays at up to 60 Hz.

On the right side, you will find single USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A port. This is basically a USB 3.0 port.

Keyboard + Touchpad

The 2021 MateBook X Pro comes with a full-sized, ten-keyless keyboard, and a large touchpad.

Pop-Up Camera

Like the 2020 MateBook X Pro we reviewed, the 2021 MateBook 14 comes with a pop-up camera, hidden under a special camera key on the keyboard.

It pops up when you press on it, and pressing it again hides it. This is a great security measure because the camera is physically blocked until you actually need to use it – no hacker will be able to surreptitiously use it to take your photos or videos!

There is only one problem with such a design – it takes photos and videos at an unflattering upward angle. You will also always appear to look upwards on video conferences, and videos that you record.

HUAWEI Share Multi-Screen Collaboration

The 2021 MateBook X Pro supports HUAWEI Share for multi-screen collaboration.

It basically lets you connect your smartphone, and use it directly on the MateBook D 15!

You can control the apps and files on your phone directly on the laptop, even drag and drop files!

The only downside? It is limited to HUAWEI and HONOR smartphones with NFC.

HUAWEI MeeTime

The 2021 MateBook X Pro also supports HUAWEI MeeTime, which is their version of Apple FaceTime – a free, proprietary video call service.

It offers some advantages over its competitors – FaceTime, WhatsApp, etc. but can only be used by HUAWEI devices.

2021 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro Laptop : Price + Deal!

The 2021 HUAWEI MateBook 14 comes in the Emerald Green colour, with an official launch price of RM 6,899 (about US$1,679 / £1,209 / A$2,171 / S$2,228).

The first 1,500 customers to pre-order one from 20 to 23 April 2021, will receive free gifts worth RM 800 :

  • HUAWEI Backpack Swift
  • HUAWEI Bluetooth Mouse Swift
  • City Travel Gift Package
  • Microsoft Office 365 (1 Year Subscription)

On the left side, you will find a single USB Type C port, with a 3.5 mm audio port and a HDMI 1.4b port.

The HDMI 1.4b port can handle up to 4K displays, but only at up to 24 fps. To display at 4K @ 50 fps / 60 fps, you need HDMI 2.0.

On the right side, you will find two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A ports. These are basically USB 3.0 ports.

Keyboard + Touchpad

The 2021 MateBook 14 comes with a full-sized, ten-keyless keyboard, and a large touchpad.

The 2021 HUAWEI MateBook D 14 comes with a 14-inch FullView Display, with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Performance

It is powered by the 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10210U with integrated Intel UHD Graphics.

On the right side, you will find a 3.5 mm audio port, and a single USB 2.0 Type A port.

We have to wonder though – why stick with super-old USB 2.0, instead of the much faster USB 3.0 port?

Keyboard + Touchpad

The 2021 MateBook D 14 comes with a full-sized, ten-keyless keyboard, and a large touchpad.

In their 2021 refresh, HUAWEI is offering the MateBook D 15 in two variants – the 11th Gen Edition, and the 10th Gen Edition.

As you can pretty much surmise, they are basically the same laptop, just powered by either the 11th Gen Core i5 processor, or the older 10th Gen Core i5 processor.

2021 HUAWEI MateBook D 15 Laptops : Key Features

15.6-inch FullView Display

The 2021 HUAWEI MateBook D 15 comes with a large 15.6-inch FullView Display, with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

This is not a particularly bright display, with a maximum brightness of just 250 nits; and it only has a colour gamut of 45% NTSC.

But it is large, with narrow bezels that give it an 87% screen-to-body ratio – hence the name, FullView Display.

Performance

HUAWEI offers two variants, with different CPU + GPU options :

  • 11th Gen Edition : Intel Core i5-1135G7 with Intel Xe Graphics
  • 10th Gen Edition : Intel Core i5-10210U with NVIDIA GeForce MX250

They both come with fast DDR4 memory, and a fast PCIe NVMe SSD with 512 GB of storage.

Battery + Charging

All that is powered by a decent 42 Whr battery, paired with a compact 65 watt USB Type C fast charger.

The charger can be used to charge other USB Type C devices, and supports HUAWEI SuperCharge for certain HUAWEI smartphones.

Connectivity

The 11th Gen Edition supports faster Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity, while the 10th Gen Edition supports Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.

Ports

On the left side, you will find a single USB Type C port, with a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type A port and a HDMI 1.4b port.

In case you are wondering, the HDMI 1.4b port can handle up to 4K displays, but only at up to 24 fps. To display at 4K @ 50 fps / 60 fps, you need HDMI 2.0.

On the right side, you will find a 3.5 mm audio port, as well as two USB 2.0 Type A ports.

HUAWEI MateStation S : Why It’s Perfect For WFH!

You may not know this, but HUAWEI just launched the MateStation S, which is just great for the new WFH normal!

Find out what the HUAWEI MateStation S offers, and why it is perfect for WFH!

 

HUAWEI MateStation S : Why It’s Perfect For WFH!

The HUAWEI MateStation S is their first-ever desktop PC, and is designed for the new WFH (Work From Home) normal.

What do we mean by that? Desktop computers are known for offering excellent performance, but are usually bulky, expensive and lack wireless connectivity.

The HUAWEI MateStation S changes that by offering desktop performance in a small package, with wireless connectivity and smart sharing capabilities.

In other words, you don’t have to worry about wires, space or battery life. Just plunk it anywhere at home, and you can start working!

Meanwhile, the HUAWEI AX3 Dual Core router with Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi Mesh capability is also coming soon, at just RM 199!

Super Compact!

The HUAWEI MateStation S is super compact. At 9 cm wide and 29 cm tall, with a cubic volume of just 8.6 litres, it is just a third of a standard PC case!

With a stylish star trail design, you can place it on your desk, under it, or even on a nearby bookshelf!

6-Core Powerful Performance!

The HUAWEI MateStation S is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4600G, a 7 nm processor with 6 cores for excellent multi-tasking performance.

It also comes with integrated 7-core Radeon Graphics, dual-channel memory, and a PCIe x4 NVMe SSD, which delivers ultra-quick start up and response times thanks to its 32 Gbps throughput.

Users have the option to add extra SSD / HDD and even RAM, if they wish to upgrade it after purchase. It comes with two M.2 2280 slots.

23.8-inch FullView Monitor!

It comes with a 23.8-inch FullView monitor, with ultra thin bezels that delivers a 90% screen-to-body ratio.

To ensure eye comfort during long hours of use, the monitor is flicker-free and TÜV Rheinland-certified for low blue light emissions.

Ultra-Quiet Cooling System

To ensure minimal noise impact on your home environment, the MateStation S comes with an ultra-quiet cooling system.

The fan features vertical blades, and works in tandem with a “high-density bionic heat sink” to deliver superior cooling performance at low noise levels.

The fan usually has a noise level of only 22 dB. Even at full throttle, it maxes out at 28 dB, so it won’t disturb anyone sleeping nearby.

Integrated Wireless Connectivity!

Unlike many desktops, the HUAWEI MateStation S offers the wireless connectivity of a laptop.

It comes with WiFi-AC – 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band with 2×2 MIMO – and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity built-in.

So you can easily connect to the Internet and other devices, without worrying about cables!

But in case you need LAN connectivity, it also comes with an RJ45 Ethernet port!

Smart Connectivity!

The HUAWEI MateStation S supports improved HUAWEI Share capability, allowing you to easily share files, images and even text between two devices using drag-and-drop or a simple tap.

You can also connect your smartphone and open three mobile app windows on the large display at once. This allows you to handle multiple tasks on one display, improving your productivity.

For instance, you can attend a video call on one mobile app screen, and take notes on a second screen, while chatting with colleagues on a third screen.

Loads Of Ports!

The HUAWEI MateStation S offers loads of ports – something laptops lack, and many users desperately need.

In The Front

  • 3.5 mm audio jack
  • USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type A) port
  • USB 2.0 (Type C) port

We should point out that this USB Type C port in the front supports 18 watt fast charging for your smartphone, so you can plug it in to charge while using the MateStation S!

In The Back

  • Audio input port
  • Audio output port
  • Microphone input port
  • HDMI port
  • VGA port
  • 2 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Type A) ports
  • 2 x USB 2.0 (Type A) ports
  • RJ45 Ethernet port
  • Serial port

The HDMI port connects to any monitor or TV, while the VGA and serial ports offer backward compatibility with many commercial and industrial devices, like projectors and bar code scanners.

Smart Keyboard!

The HUAWEI MateStation S comes with a HUAWEI Wired Keyboard with a built-in fingerprint sensor.

This makes it the world’s first desktop to feature a fingerprint power on and unlock capability! A single touch is all it needs to power on and log-in.

This is a full-sized keyboard with a numeric keypad, and a scissor key mechanism that offers 2.5 mm key travel.

Each key measures 16.05 x 6.05 mm, offering a comfortable touch type experience with tactile feedback.

 

HUAWEI MateStation S : Price + Availability

The HUAWEI MateStation S is available for sale with immediate effect at these launch prices :

  • Desktop + Keyboard : RM 2,488
  • Desktop + Monitor + Keyboard : RM 2,999

Every purchase of the full bundle (including monitor) will receive FREE GIFTS worth up to RM 855* upon purchase.

* Terms and conditions apply, while stocks last.

Shop now at the HUAWEI Online Store, or learn more about the HUAWEI MateStation S.

HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G : Everything You Need To Know!

HUAWEI just upped the ante by introducing the 5G variant of their MatePad Pro premium tablet, with a few tweaks under the hood!

Here is everything you need to know about the new HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G tablet!

 

HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G : Everything You Need To Know!

If you read our review of the HUAWEI MatePad Pro, you will know that we were so impressed with its performance and value proposition, we gave it our Reviewer’s Choice Award.

HUAWEI has just upped the ante by introducing a 5G variant, called, obviously enough – the MatePad Pro 5G.

Kirin 990 5G Mobile Platform

The main difference is its processor – it uses the HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G mobile SoC, which has a built-in Balong 5G modem.

This is a multi-mode modem that lets the MatePad Pro connect to 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G networks.

In addition, the Kirin 990 5G is faster than the non-5G variant, with an additional NPU :

  • two ARM Cortex-A76 high-performance cores at 2.86 GHz
  • two ARM Cortex-A76 sustained performance cores at 2.36 GHz (2.09 GHz for Kirin 990)
  • four ARM Cortex-A55 low-power cores at 1.95 GHz (1.86 GHz for Kirin 990)
  • two Big Core NPUs + one Tiny Core NPU (1 Big + 1 Tiny for Kirin 990)

3D Graphene Cooling System

To keep the Kirin 990 5G cool, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G features the industry’s first ultra-thick 3D graphene cooling system.

This cooling system is enhanced by AI thermal management, to help keep the tablet cool during scenarios that generate large amounts of heat – downloading on 5G, wireless / reverse wireless charging.

Faster Charging + Wireless Reverse Charging

The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G supports 40 watt fast charging – twice as fast as 20 watts fast charging supported regular MatePad Pro tablets.

It also supports 27 watt wireless charging – almost twice as fast as 15 watts wireless charging supported by regular MatePad Pro tablets.

HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro Photo Showcase : Macau!

As soon as we got our hands on the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro, we took it to Macau to grab some photo samples!

Check out the unedited photo samples we took, and see for yourselves why people are saying it has the best cameras they ever used!

 

HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro : A Quick Primer

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) is the pinnacle of Chinese smartphone technology, boasting their latest Kirin 990 processor and arguably, the world’s most advanced quad-camera system from Leica!

Despite shipping without GMS, HUAWEI sold over 1 million units of the HUAWEI Mate30 Series smartphones in China… in just 3 hours!

A big reason why so many people loved the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) is its Leica SuperSensing Quad Camera System that consists of :

  • 40 MP Cine Camera (f/1.6 aperture)
  • 40 MP SuperSensing Wide-Angle Camera (f/1.8 aperture)
  • 8 MP Telephoto Camera with 3X optical zoom (f/2.4 aperture)
  • 3D Depth Sensing Camera

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro is particularly popular because of its 40 MP SuperSensing Cine Camera, which supports 4K 60fps video recording, with these groundbreaking features :

  • an ISO of up to 51200,
  • Cinematic Time-lapse capability,
  • real-time video bokeh effect, and
  • an ultra-slow motion mode that records at up to 7680 fps!

For those who want to buy the HUAWEI Mate30 Pro directly, here are some online purchase links :

 

Historic Old Macau!

This time, we focused on the streets of peninsular Macau. This is the old, heavily-populated part of Macau where most of the Portuguese-influenced sights like Senado Square is located.

As this part of Macau is heavily-urbanised with many old buildings, it has great character wherever you go – offering great opportunities for street photography.

As usual, we took these photo samples using the Auto mode with no manual adjustments – because this is precisely how the vast majority of smartphone users take their photos!

We want our photo samples to reflect EXACTLY what any HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) user can achieve, if he/she took the same photos in the same spot, at the same time, as we did.

 

HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro Photo Showcase : Macau!

We started the day with noodles and congee at Rua dos Mercadores. Note how congested the city looks – the buildings here are at least seven stories tall.

We resized this photo to ensure it loads quickly, but the detail in the original photo is amazing – you can zoom Into the balcony of the residential units and check out what plants they have in their mini-garden, or what clothes they hung out to dry!

This view of Rua Central emphasises the congestion in this part of Macau that cramps about 600,000 residents in just 8.5 square kilometres.

This photo shows pretty good control of the highlights and shadows. The sun was really bright, beating down mercilessly on the residences on the left, while the rest were in shadows.

The highlights were slightly overblown, but it did a good job of preserving details in the shadows. You can clearly read the small signboards further down the road.

Just off Rua Central is this unique green-coloured Theatro Dom Pedro V. (伯多祿五世劇院) | Dom Pedro V Theatre.

Built to commemorate King Pedro V of Portugal, this neo-classical building now hosts orchestral performances, opera and musical festivals.

Again, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) opts to let the highlights blow out a little, in exchange for preserving details in the shadows. You can clearly make out the man standing next to the pillar, as well as details of the theatre’s ornate windows and doors.

On arrival at the A-Ma Temple, we find it bustling with lion and dragon dance troupes preparing for the Macau International Parade!

It was a really bright day – you can see some glare from the bright sun in the upper right quadrant. Yet, you can zoom in and clearly see the faces of each person in this picture, even though they are in the shadows.

We stepped inside the A-Ma Temple for a short respite from the crowds outside. Built in 1488 to worship the Chinese sea goddess Mazu, it is the oldest temple in Macau!

This is yet another high-contrast shot. The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) did a decent job on the harshly-lit leaves, and kept the skies blue instead of completely white.

But more importantly – you can clearly see the craggy texture of the boulder, as well as the stone stairs, even though they are in the shadows.

HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro Photo Showcase : The Monte Fort!

Next, we headed off for the Monte Fort – the tallest point in Macau, and its historic military centre.

Instead of doubling back along the same route, we went down Rua da Barra for more scenic opportunities.

The 40 MP wide-angle camera is particularly useful in such shots, although it’s not quite as wide as the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ (USUK | AU | SGMY).

The good news though is that your subjects in these wide-angle photos will not look distorted.

Even side roads offer great photographic opportunities, thanks to its combination of unique architecture, weathered look and old world cobble-stone pavements.

This high-contrast shot shows how well the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) controls both the brightly-lit leaves and cobblestones, yet ensuring we can clearly see the vines and moss on the old walls and the design of the louvred windows and doors.

The new world (tour vans) trying to navigate the narrow streets of old, historic Macau…

Yet another very high-contrast shot. While the harshly-lit buildings in the background lost some details, it still preserved enough that we can make out the building facade as well as the vans.

Yet you can clearly make out the crawling vines, and weathered walls of the green building on the left, as well as its window and door.

On the way, we spotted this unique structure – a doorway into the Patio do Cotovelo “inner” street with businesses lining both sides.

The detail is AMAZING! More so when you blow it up to 100% of its 40 MP resolution. You can see the brickwork in great detail, and zoom right to the shop at the end of the lane!

So here we are, at the Monte Fort (Fortaleza do Monte or 大炮台). Built between 1617 and 1626 on top of Mount Hill, it is the historic military centre of Macau.

In this almost uniformly-bright photo, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) demonstrates its ability to capture incredible detail. Blowing up the picture allows us to see the individual leaves of the tree, as well as the details of the stone walls.

The fort covers an area of 8,000 square meters, with 32 of these muzzle-loading (state-of-the-art in those days!) cannons to protect Macau against pirates and eventually, the Dutch!

Again, this was an incredibly bright day, creating harsh shadows. Yet, you can’t tell that from this photo – the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) was able to control the highlights so that cannon, which is in direct sunlight, isn’t blown-out.

And yet, you can also see the colour of the flowers next to it, in the shadows. Also notable is the fact we can make out details of the distant building in the far background.

These days, it has become the favourite past-time of every tourist to use one of these cannons to “shoot” at the Grand Lisboa! LOL!

On this incredibly bright day, it’s noteworthy that we can zoom in and see details of the Grand Lisboa’s facade, which would be washed out in other cameras… and yes, you can make out the clouds in the bright blue sky!

This view offers the best perspective of Macau – the new and the old. The modern (and frankly, really odd-looking) Grand Lisboa in the distance, and the crumbling ruins of the old Monte Fort.

Again, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) impressed us with its ability to preserve details in very bright conditions, even though the Grand Lisboa is miles away!

On the way back from the Monte Fort, we stumbled upon this unique home that is built over a street. I don’t even know what such a feature is called… a bridge house???

In any case, this is a great photo to zoom in, and be amazed at the amount of detail captured in a single photo.

You can examine in detail, the intricate brickwork of the overhead house. You can even zoom past the tunnel, into the shops in the distance!

As you can tell – Macau offers a lot of unique photographic opportunities, even in places you would least expect them – off the beaten path!

And the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro (MY | SG | US) has the cameras that will let you capture incredible detail in every photo. Best of all – its Auto mode works incredibly well, letting you take awesome photos without any special skill or setup!

Why FreeBuds 3 Is The Best Alternative To AirPods Pro!

Apple AirPods Pro are a popular choice for those who want active noise cancelling earbuds, but there is actually a better alternative – the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3.

Don’t believe us? Find out why the FreeBuds 3 is a superior alternative to the AirPods Pro!

 

Why FreeBuds 3 Is The Best Alternative To AirPods Pro!

Reason #1 : Low Latency Bluetooth Connectivity

One of the biggest problems affecting Bluetooth earbuds is latency – the delay from when the audio data is transmitted to the earbuds, and when the sound emits from the speakers.

High latency causes the sounds and images of the movie you are watching to go out of sync. It is also a big problem in games, where audio cues can mean the difference between winning and losing!

Most TWS (True Wireless Stereo) earbuds like the AirPods Pro uses a binaural single-channel connection, where the smartphone transmits the audio data to the primary earbud, which then forwards one of the channels to the secondary earbud.

This is simpler to implement, but results in greater latency and higher power consumption by the primary earbud.

A select few TWS earbuds use dual-channel transmissions to both earbuds simultaneously, which reduces latency but results in higher power consumption by both earbuds.

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 avoids both issues because it uses their proprietary Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission technology to transmit the left and right channels to each earbud synchronously and separately.

This reduces latency to just 190 ms (lower than the AirPods Pro), ensuring accurate synchronisation, while reducing power consumption!

Reason #2 : Less Chance Of Interference

In public places, interference is a big issue because there is an abundance of both active Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices, and they are all using the same 2.4 GHz spectrum!

This may result in higher audio latencies, or even worse – a disconnection of one or both earbuds from your smartphone!

The HUAWEI Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission technology reduces the chance of interference from other Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices.

Reason #3 : Powerful Kirin A1 Chipset

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is powered by the Kirin A1 – the world’s first Bluetooth 5.1 SoC, which supports Bluetooth Low Energy 5.1 as well.

With an industry-leading 365 MHz audio processor, it is powerful enough to simultaneously perform real-time noise cancellation for both earbuds, as well as real-time 3A call noise cancellation, with automatic echo cancellation (AEC), automatic gain control (AGC) and adaptive noise reduction (ANR) for the microphones!

Reason #4 : More Comfortable Fit

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is the world’s first active noise cancelling Bluetooth earbuds with an open fit design. Because they won’t close up your ear canals, they are more comfortable to wear for long hours of use.

Its Dolphin Bionic Design is not just aesthetically-pleasing, it’s designed to ensure a more secure yet comfortable fit so you can run and jog without worry.

Reason #5 : Personalised Noise Cancellation

The open design is more complicated to handle because it lets more ambient noise leak in. To correct for that, HUAWEI generated 9 sets of noise reduction profiles, based on extensive research of real human ear canals of different ages, genders, ear sizes, etc.

This lets you optimise its active noise cancellation performance with a simple click in the HUAWEI AI Life app (available in Google Play Store and HUAWEI AppGallery). This gives it a leg up over its competitors that are based on standard ear models.

Reason #6 : Noise Reduction For Voice

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 reduce noise through two mechanisms. Its microphones are shielded by a wind noise reduction duct, so you can speak clearly even if you are running or cycling.

Whenever you speak, the FreeBuds 3 uses bone vibrations to distinguish your voice from background noise, ensuring you are clearly heard even in noisy environments.

Reason #7 : Super Fast Pairing!

Thanks to its support for Bluetooth 5.1, it connects much quicker to your smartphone than Bluetooth 5.0 earbuds like the Apple AirPods Pro.

It is also designed to automatically turn on and pair with your smartphone, whenever you open its charging case. It’s ready to use by the time you place it in your ears!

 

Finally, The FreeBuds 3 Is MUCH CHEAPER Than AirPods Pro!

The eight and final reason – the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) is MUCH CHEAPER than the AirPods Pro!

With a retail price of RM 679 / ~US$163 / £139.99 / ~A$239.99 / S$219, you will get a better pair of wireless earphones with lower latency and better active noise cancellation for both voice and audio… at a steep discount!

So head over to the nearest HUAWEI store to try out the FreeBuds 3, and see for yourself why it’s a better alternative to the AirPods Pro!

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) is available in two colour options – Carbon Black and Ceramic White, and you can purchase it directly from HUAWEI Malaysia here! For more information, see HUAWEI’s FB post!

Here are some online purchase links, with prices accurate as of 1 December 2019 :

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 : Superior ANC For Voice + Audio!

The modern world is noisy, and that’s why so many people are turning to ANC earbuds like the new HUAWEI FreeBuds 3.

In this article, we will take a look at how HUAWEI Freebuds 3 delivers superior ANC for both voice and audio, giving it a leg-up over the competitors!

 

Why Active Noise Cancellation?

For decades, we have been relying on over-ear headphones to reduce external noise from disrupting our enjoyment of music and movies. The covering of our ears with padded ear cups is what’s called passive noise cancellation or reduction.

Some of us even resort to in-ear earphones, where the ear buds are inserted directly into the ear canals. Again, they serve to passively block noise from the outside.

Both of these passive noise cancelling solutions help, but they only offer minimal noise reduction. And even worse – they are uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) delivers far better noise cancellation, and it does this without using thick padding or requiring you to insert anything into your ear canals.

That’s why everyone wants active noise cancelling earphones – once you tried one, you will never go back!

 

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) offers active noise cancellation in an open fit in-ear design, which offers maximum comfort; with a Dolphin Bionic Design to ensure a better fit.

HUAWEI Kirin A1

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) is powered by the Kirin A1 – the world’s first Bluetooth 5.1 SoC. This allows it deliver a stable and fast Bluetooth connection for accurate audio and video synchronisation.

HUAWEI Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission Technology

The HUAWEI Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission technology transmits audio data to each ear bud synchronously and separately, to reduce latency and ensure accurate synchronisation.

Active Noise Cancellation

The Kirin A1 has a fast 356 MHz audio processor, which allows the FreeBuds 3 to capture and cancel background noise in real-time. This allows you to enjoy your music, or calls, even in noisy environments.

Tests have shown that ambient noise is reduced by half, even sudden loud noises like train brakes and car honks.

HUAWEI also allows you to adjust 9 different parameters to fine-tune its noise cancellation performance for more challenging environments.

Bone Conduction Sensor + Aerodynamic Mic Duct

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) does not just reduce noise to your ears, it also reduces noise when you speak!

Its microphones have an aerodynamic duct design to reduce wind noise, and it uses bone conduction voice sensors to pick up your voice vibrations.

When the ambient noise levels are too high, it uses your bone conduction vibrations to enhance the quality of your calls, making sure that your voice is clearly heard above hubbub around you!

14 mm Driver + Bass Tube

In addition to a 14 mm dynamic driver, each ear bud has a bass tube tucked right behind, delivering a louder and punchier bass.

AAC Coding

Unlike most earphones that use SBC or aptX, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 uses AAC coding – the only Bluetooth audio codec that makes use of psychoacoustic modelling to compress the data.

AAC coding delivers significantly better audio quality with lower latency and power consumption. However, it is a processing-intensive codec.

Hence, HUAWEI advises that you pair the FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) with HUAWEI smartphones, because they are designed to encode audio using the AAC codec, instead of the more common SBC or aptX codecs.

Long Battery Life

Thanks to the highly-efficient Kirin A1 chip, the FreeBuds 3 can last 4 hours of non-stop music playback with active noise cancellation turned on.

Its carry case doubles as a portable charger, allowing you to recharge the FreeBuds 3 up to four times!

It even supports wireless charging, so you can use any smartphone that supports Qi wireless charging to recharge the FreeBuds 3 and its charging case!

Super Fast Pairing!

HUAWEI designed the FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) for easy and fast pairing. Even pairing them for the first time to a HUAWEI smartphone is as simple as tapping on the pop-up window to confirm the pairing!

Thereafter, your FreeBuds 3 will automatically turn on and pair with your HUAWEI smartphone when you open its charging case.

Watch how fast it turns on and connects to the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro! Hint – it’s less than a second!

First, let’s get the elephant out of the room – the worry about HUAWEI Mobile Services, instead of Google Mobile Services.

Malaysians are generally quite tech-savvy and have quickly embraced solutions to the problem, as this video demonstrates :

Greatly Expanded HUAWEI AppGallery

Thanks to massive investment in the HUAWEI AppGallery, it has seen a massive expansion in the number of apps. More importantly – many key apps were launched within a month!

Over a period of just two months – from September to October 2019 – there were 200,000 new users of HUAWEI App Gallery, with 100 million apps downloaded in Malaysia alone!

On a daily basis, HUAWEI reported over 1.5 million downloads, and that 27 popular or critical apps were added in a single month.

SuperSensing Cine Camera

Malaysians LOVE to take photos and videos with their smartphones, and they are very particular about image quality and camera features.

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro is particularly popular because of its 40 MP SuperSensing Cine Camera, which supports 4K 60fps video recording, with these groundbreaking features :

  • an ISO of up to 51200,
  • Cinematic Time-lapse capability,
  • real-time video bokeh effect, and
  • an ultra-slow motion mode that records at up to 7680 fps!

Interactive AI Gesture Control

This is a really cool feature that seems to have impressed many Malaysians.

Its 3D Depth Sensing Camera and a Gesture Sensor are used to identify your face and detect your gestures, which are then used by its Tiny-Core NPU to interpret your gestures.

By simply looking at the screen, and swiping your hands, you can “command” the Mate 30 Series smartphone to perform many commands like unlocking the screen, change pages, and take screenshots.

AI Private View + AI Auto Rotate

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Series smartphones offer an AI Private View mode, which hides your private messages if it cannot recognised the face of the person viewing them!

They also have an AI Auto-Rotate capability, that uses the front 3D camera to analyse your eye orientation to automatically determine if they should lock the rotation of the display.

Multi-Screen Collaboration

The HUAWEI Multi-Screen Collaboration feature is incredibly powerful and useful.

Enabling it lets you easily drag-and-drop files between your Mate 30 Series smartphone and laptop. It even lets you use your laptop’s keyboard to type messages directly on your phone!

Long Battery Life!

Malaysians are prodigious smartphone users, which is why we always have a power bank handy!

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Series smartphones though, comes with a large 4200 mAh (Mate30) or 4500 mAh (Mate30 Pro) battery, which means they last a full day and then some!

And when it’s time to recharge them, it appears Malaysians love its super-fast 40W wired charging and world-leading 27W wireless charging capabilities!
