HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Synergistic Combo!

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Synergistic Combo!

HUAWEI just introduced the MatePad 11 tablet and the MateBook D15 laptop, each offering new capabilities.

But take a look at what happens when you use them together!

 

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Quick Primer!

HUAWEI just introduced the MatePad 11 tablet and the MateBook D15 laptop, each offering new capabilities.

HUAWEI MatePad 11

Running on HarmonyOS 2, the MatePad 11 is the first HUAWEI tablet to feature a 10.95-inch FullView display with a 120 Hz refresh rate for a silky-smooth visual experience, and a DCI-P3 colour gamut for real-to-life colours!

Its display is also TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light-certified, and TÜV Rheinland Flicker-Free certified, guaranteeing you hours of comfortable viewing without eye fatigue.

The MatePad 11 comes with the 2nd Generation M-Pencil stylus, which boasts an almost imperceptible lag as low as 2 ms. It has 4,096 pressure levels and tilt sensitivity, giving you a natural writing and drawing experience.

The 2nd Generation M-Pencil also supports Double Tap to Switch tools, for convenient writing and drawing. If you make a mistake, just double tap the M-Pencil to instantly switch it to the eraser mode!

It also supports HUAWEI FreeScript that quickly converts your handwriting into beautiful text, as well as Instant Shape and Instant Table, to help you easily draw perfect shapes and tablets!

The MatePad 11 is also a multimedia powerhouse, with quad-channel large amplitude quad-speaker system, tuned by Harman Kardon.

It is further enhanced with Histen 7.0 for greater bass and a new sound field enhancement algorithm, giving you that immersive cinema-like audio experience when you watch movies!

The MatePad 11 tablet also comes with 4 microphones, to pick up your voice while eliminating background noise using its built-in noise reduction and echo cancellation technologies.

You also do not need to worry about its battery life – the HUAWEI MatePad 11 offers up to 12 hours of work productivity time or 1080p video playback on a single charge.

HUAWEI MateBook D15

The HUAWEI MateBook D15 is now powered by either the 10th or 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, in a superbly thin and light aluminium alloy chassis – just 16.9 mm thin and weighing only 1.56 kg.

It comes with a FullView Display, offering 87% screen-to-body ratio, thanks to its 5.3 mm narrow bezels at the top and sides.

The large 15.6-inch display has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and an anti-glare IPS panel that is TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light and Flicker-Free certified.

Despite its slim design, the MateBook 15 offers an impressive array of ports :

  • 1 x USB-C port
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 port
  • 2 x USB 2.0 ports
  • 1 x HDMI port
  • 1 x 3.5 mm audio port

 

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Synergistic Combo!

Both the HUAWEI MatePad 11 and MateBook 15 are not your average tablet or laptop. They both come with built-in distributed technology to harness the capabilities of other devices.

This distributed technology unleashes the synergistic potential that most people don’t realise, when the MatePad 11 and the MateBook D15 are used together!

When used together, they both can perform what HUAWEI calls Multi-screen Collaboration, with three modes :

Mirror Mode

The HUAWEI MateBook D15 display can be mirrored onto the MatePad 11 tablet, allowing it to be used as a digital drawing pad using the bundled 2nd Generation M-Pencil.

You can use the M-Pencil to write, draw or doodle on the MatePad 11 tablet, with the changes reflected on MateBook D15’s documents.

You can also use the mirror mode for collaborative discussions by separate groups – the same content can be viewed and changed on the tablet and PC by different people / groups at the same time.

Extend Mode

The HUAWEI MatePad 11 can serve as a secondary display for the MateBook D15 laptop, giving you more space to work with.

You can use tablet to load documents for reference, or browse for information or play videos while you work on the laptop.

Collaborate Mode

The built-in distributed technology allows you to easily transfer content between the MatePad 11 and the MateBook D15, without using a USB flash drive!

All you have to do is drag and drop the files you want – be they photos, videos, music or even documents – using the mouse. It’s that simple!

On top of that, you can use the keyboard and mouse between both devices using the Collaborate Mode!

 

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : Price + Deal!

HUAWEI is offering their new tablets and laptops at these launch prices :

  • MatePad 11 (128 GB) : RM1,999 (about US$473 / £342 / A$641 / S$643)

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.

Recommended : MeeTime : Free Voice + Video Calls On 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)

2021 HUAWEI MateBook 14 : Key Features

Let’s take a look at its key features…

14-inch FullView Display

The 2021 HUAWEI MateBook 14 comes with a 14-inch FullView Display, with a 2K resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels.

This is not a particularly bright display, with a maximum brightness of 300 nits; but it has a decent colour gamut of 100% sRGB.

It also has vey narrow bezels which give it a 90% 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 DDR4-3200 memory, and a fast PCIe NVMe SSD with 512 GB of storage.

Battery + Charging

All that is powered by a large 56 Whr battery, that HUAWEI claims will last 11 hours of non-stop 1080p video playback.

It is paired with a compact 65 watt USB Type C fast charger, that can be used to charge other USB Type C devices, and supports HUAWEI SuperCharge for certain HUAWEI smartphones.

Connectivity + Ports

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.

2021 HUAWEI MateBook D 14 : Key Features

Let’s take a look at its key features…

14-inch FullView Display

The 2021 HUAWEI MateBook D 14 comes with a 14-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 84% screen-to-body ratio – hence the name, FullView Display.

Performance

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

It comes with either 8 GB or 16 GB of DDR4-3200 memory, and a fast PCIe NVMe SSD with 256 GB or 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 + Ports

The 2021 HUAWEI MateBook D 14 has Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity built-in.

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.

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, 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.

Pop-Up Camera

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

  • HUAWEI Backpack

Here are online purchase options in various countries :

 

2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro : Unboxing

The 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) came to us in a large brown box, but that’s just the shipping box. Inside is the actual white retail box, which is what you will find in a retail store.

Once you fully unbox it, this is what you will find inside :

  • HUAWEI MateBook X Pro laptop
  • HUAWEI MateDock 2 dongle
  • HUAWEI MateBook X Pro documents
  • HUAWEI USB-C Charger (65W) + USB-C power cable

 

2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro : Hands-On Experience!

The 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) is a compact, premium ultra-light laptop, that packs the very best that HUAWEI has to offer.

Display

Despite its larger 13.9-inch display – the 2020 MateBook X Pro is slightly smaller than the 13-inch MacBook Pro, thanks to its narrow bezels which gives it an incredible 91% screen-to-body ratio.

In addition, this is a 10-point touchscreen display, with a higher resolution of 3000 x 2000 pixels, and 100% sRGB colour gamut.

The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, and an anti-fingerprint coating – helping to keep it scratch-free and smudge-free.

Build Quality

Thanks to its CNC-machined metal unibody, it is only 14.6 mm thick and weighs just 1.33 kg – making it thinner and lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

HUAWEI also gave it a sandblasted finish for that premium look and feel. We are also glad to note that the finish is smear-resistant.

Keyboard + Touchpad

The 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) comes with a full-size keyboard with back-lit chiclet keys that are 16 mm in size.

Its multi-touch touchpad is large for a Windows 10 laptop, measuring 12 cm x 7.7 cm (4.7″ x 3″) – almost as large as the Force Touch trackpad on the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Naturally, it doesn’t have a Touch Bar and that’s just fine because it gets hot at the strip above the keyboard. Precisely where the Touch Bar is on the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and precisely why that’s such a stupid idea.

2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro : A Closer Look!

Available Ports

Like all ultra-thin laptops, the 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) lacks ports. On the left side, you will find a 3.5 mm audio jack, and two USB Type C ports.

The USB Type C port with the charging icon is a USB 3.1 port with a maximum power output of 10 watts. The other USB Type C port has a higher power output of 15 watts.

They both support 40 Mbps transfer rates, and DisplayPort output, and double as the MateBook X Pro’s charging port.

On the right side, you will find a single USB 3.0 Type A port. It would have been nice if HUAWEI added a third USB Type C port here, but we cannot underscore how important it is to have this Type A port.

Many of us still have many USB Type A devices – thumb drives, portable drives, mouse, etc. so having even a single USB Type A port would let you use them without resorting to a dongle.

Dongle

That brings us to the next point – . The lack of ports on ultra-light laptops virtually require you to purchase a USB Type C dongle.

Fortunately, HUAWEI includes their MateDock 2 dongle with the 2020 MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK), which offers these ports :

  • USB Type A : supports USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 drives
  • USB Type C : supports USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 drives
  • HDMI 2.0 : supports video resolution up to 3840 x 2160 (30 Hz) or 2160 x 1440 (60 Hz)
  • VGA : supports WUXGA resolution up to 1920 x 1200 (60 Hz)

Recommended : HUAWEI MateDock 2 : A Nifty Little USB-C Dongle!

Pop-Up Camera

HUAWEI was able to squeeze in the large 13.9-inch display into a form factor smaller than the 13-inch MacBook Pro because they used extremely thin bezels.

Unfortunately, this meant displacing the camera, which is usually hidden in the top bezel of the display.

They opted to hide the 720p camera and an LED light 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.

Fingerprint Sensor

It may not seem obvious, but the 2020 MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) comes with a Goodix fingerprint sensor built into the Power button, located on the upper right edge of the keyboard.

This is a useful feature for those on-the-go, because it lets you login without keying your password in public.

Quad Speakers + Microphones

The 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) comes with four speakers offering both tweeters for clear treble, and woofers for deep, resonant bass.

It also comes with quad microphones, which not only offer 360° sound reception up to 4 meters away, but also noise cancelling capabilities.

HUAWEI Share Multi-Screen Collaboration

The 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) supports HUAWEI Share for multi-screen collaboration.

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

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 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) 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.

2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro : Performance

Our 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) came powered by the 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10510U processor, which is a 4-core, 8-thread processor with a 1.8 GHz clock speed that ramps up to 4.9 GHz during intensive tasks.

The processor has Intel UHD Graphics built-in, but can switch to the NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics (with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory) for more strenuous graphics demands.

Our unit came with 16 GB of LPDDR3 memory, and a 1 TB Samsung PCIe SSD. Keeping all that powered is a large 56 Whr lithium-ion polymer battery.

Work Performance : PCMark 10

The Intel Core i7-10510U processor was powerful, delivering high scores in PCMark 10.

It is, frankly, overkill for basic work applications, but will be very helpful in tackling compute-intensive tasks, like rendering videos.

Gaming Performance : 3DMark Time Spy

The NVIDIA GeForce MX250 is entry-level mobile graphics, and it shows – it’s slightly slower than a desktop GeForce GT 130.

That means it will be good enough for esports gaming, at the lower 1080p resolution with lower quality settings.

Battery Life : YouTube + Modern Office

HUAWEI claimed 13 hours of video playback, albeit with the display set to 150 nits (⅓ of max brightness).

YouTube Screen-On Time

We locked the brightness at 50% and streamed YouTube videos in theatre mode using WiFi.

The 2020 MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) lasted 9 hours 11 minutes before its battery dropped to 10%.

PCMark 10 : Modern Office

With the brightness locked at 50%, we then ran PCMark 10’s Modern Office benchmark until it powered off.

The 2020 MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) lasted 7 hours 40 minutes before its battery dropped to 3%.

Battery : Recharging Speed

Its recharging time was even better, especially up to the 90% point. Here are the times it takes to recharge from 10% :

  • 25% : 12 minutes
  • 30% : 16 minutes
  • 50% : 31 minutes
  • 60% : 39 minutes
  • 75% : 52 minutes
  • 90% : 72 minutes
  • 95% : 84 minutes
  • 100% : 121 minutes

Its 65W fast charger takes about 35 minutes to hit mid-point, but 2 hours 1 minute to fully recharge its battery.

That gives it a battery life : recharging time ratio of 4.6:1 for video streaming, and 3.8:1 for office work.

As a rule of thumb, you will need to recharge its battery about 16 minutes for every hour of battery life.

 

2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro : Verdict + Award

Despite its innocuous looks, the 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) is truly an ultra-light beast.

It is smaller and lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and yet boasts a touchscreen display that is larger and offers a higher 3K resolution!

On top of that, it comes with a powerful quad-core 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, with NVIDIA GeForce MX250 mobile graphics, 16 GB LPDDR3 memory and a spacious 1TB PCIe SSD.

Its large 56 Whr battery lasts a phenomenal 9 hours 11 minutes in our test, and recharges in just 2 hours. That means you can really be on-the-go all-day with this ultra-light laptop.

That said, 2020 MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) is not a gaming machine. The GeForce MX250 will handle games like Civilizations VI and Dota 2 just fine, but don’t expect it to take on Red Dead Redemption 2!

And if you are expecting more ports, then it’s not for you. You have to learn to live with two USB Type C port – one of which you will need to use to recharge the laptop!

But the good news is unlike most ultra-light laptops, the MateBook X Pro comes with one USB Type A port, and a MateDock 2 dongle. That gives you great flexibility, right out of the box.

Now, the biggest impediment for many people would be its price. Like other premium ultra-light laptops, the 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) costs a pretty penny.

There are really no two ways about it. It is expensive to make super-thin, ultra-light laptop computers that are this powerful. Especially one with a large, 3K touchscreen.

The truth is – the 2020 MateBook X Pro offers great performance and features in a really light and compact form factor, and it is at least 20% cheaper than a comparable 13-inch MacBook Pro!

For those reasons, we believe the 2020 HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MY|SG|UK) deserves our Reviewer’s Choice Award. Congratulations, HUAWEI!

5 Ways How HUAWEI Smart Life Devices Boost Productivity!

HUAWEI Smart Life devices are more than just convenient, they can actually give you a big productivity boost at work!

Find out how to use these HUAWEI Smart Life devices to greatly improve your productivity at work!

 

5 Ways How HUAWEI Smart Life Devices Boost Productivity!

HUAWEI created the Smart Life ecosystem to deliver the life of future, both at home and at work.

Here are five ways to leverage HUAWEI Smart Life devices to greatly improve your productivity!

Tip #1 : Eliminate All Dead Zones!

Digital natives are no longer chained to their desks, and the modern office offers a variety of working and collaboration spaces for people to work more effectively.

The HUAWEI WiFi Q2 Pro is designed to offer fast, reliable WiFi connectivity indoors and outdoors, even for the largest workspace! Just add satellite units whenever you need greater reach, without messy cables or setting up!

Thanks to its seamless roaming capability and automatic channel optimisations – it will intelligently switch WiFi channels and hotspots to ensure you get the best possible connectivity, even as you move about!

All you have to do is focus on your work. No matter where you go, the Q2 Pro will ensure you have the best possible connectivity!

Tip #2 : Easy Transfers For Quick Work!

Smartphones are great because they are always connected to the Internet, but they are not always the best platform to do serious work.

That’s where the HUAWEI Multi-Screen Collaboration feature comes in – it lets you get work done on both the Matebook 13 laptop and the Mate 30 or Mate 30 Pro smartphone simultaneously!

And with One Tap to Share technology, you can easily transfer files between your smartphone and the laptop with a simple drag-and-drop motion! Now that is truly how things should work in the life of the future!

Tip #3 : Tune Out The Noise!

One of the biggest problems people face at work is noise. Whether it’s from your colleagues’ keyboards, or their chit-chats, noise can really be distracting and even stressful.

But thanks to the HUAWEI Freebuds 3, you can literally tune out the noise with its Active Noise Cancellation technology. And if you need to call someone in a noisy environment, its Bone Sensor picks up your voice for clear conversations!

Tip #4 : Stay Healthy!

It is important to stay healthy, to maximise your productivity. That’s why the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 will remind you to stand up and move around, so you don’t sit down for hours on end.

It even monitors your stress levels and blood pressure, and suggest breathing exercises to calm you down and lower your stress levels!

Because it has a 14-day battery life, you should wear it to sleep, so it can help to monitor your sleep patterns, and ensure you stay healthy 24/7.

It is also important to take good care of your eyes. The HUAWEI Matebook 13 comes with an Eye Comfort Mode that is designed to protect your retina and avoid eyestrain. This lets you work in optimal comfort for as long as you like!

Tip #5 : Keep Your Hands Free!

One way to greatly improve productivity is to leverage the advanced capabilities of HUAWEI Smart Life devices to keep both of your hands free!

The HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 and the HUAWEI x Gentle Monster Eyewear let you make and receive calls, letting you continue working even as you talk.

In addition to letting you make and receive calls, the HUAWEI Freebuds 3 can recognise your speech, and activate the Smart Assistant app for hands-free capabilities.

Experience Life of the Future with HUAWEI Smart Life Devices!

HUAWEI is more than just a smartphone manufacturer. They have a veritable ecosystem of smart devices, which they call HUAWEI Smart Life.

Find out how to use these HUAWEI Smart Life devices to enjoy a life of the future!

 

Experience Life of the Future with HUAWEI Smart Life Devices!

Life like a box of chocolates – you never know what you are going to get!

Your flight may get delayed. An idyllic vacation may turn out to be an utter bore. Your boss may suddenly send some urgent work that needs your input.

But digital natives can now leverage HUAWEI Smart Life devices to tackle these challenges for a stress-free life of the future!

Recommended : 5 Ways How HUAWEI Smart Life Devices Boost Productivity!

Tip #1 : Stuck Somewhere? Transport Yourself Away!

If your flight or train ride gets delayed, or you are stuck in a long line, whip out your smartphone for some mobile gaming!

Stop fretting about the delay, and channel your frustrations into finishing off your virtual enemies!

It helps that HUAWEI smartphones are not only powerful gaming devices, they have long battery life for hours of mobile gaming!

In addition, the new HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro come with two virtual buttons on the edge of the screen – one on each side.

Use these buttons to gain an advantage over your opponents – move, scope, aim and shoot at the same time! Nothing beats stress more than winning a game!

Tip #2 : Staying Connected With Two Free Hands

The new HUAWEI x Gentle Monster Eyewear not only look great, they let you pick up calls and stay connected, and enjoy music on-the-go!

Best of all, you can do all that while keeping both hands free!

Tip #3 : Stay Healthy + Sweat It Out!

The life of the future does not mean getting stuck in faceless cubicles for hours on end. Being digitally connected means you get to break out of the office!

For digital natives, results matter more than physical presence. Take time off to sweat it out for a healthier and less stressful life!

Use the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 to monitor your heart rate, and keep track of your jog or swim. It will help to keep you in tip-top shape!

Don’t forget to slip on the HUAWEI x Gentle Monster Eyewear so you can listen to music and chat with your friends, while you burn off the calories!

Tip #4 : Tune Out The Noise!

One of the biggest problems people face, whether at work or at play, is noise. It can really get on your nerves and ruin a great day.

But thanks to the HUAWEI Freebuds 3, you can literally tune out the noise with its Active Noise Cancellation technology. And if you need to call someone, its Bone Sensor picks up your voice for clear conversations!

Tip #5 : Easy Transfers For Quick Work!

Smartphones are great because they are always connected to the Internet, but it’s not always the best platform to do serious work.

That’s where the HUAWEI Multi-Screen Collaboration feature comes in – it lets you get work done on both the Matebook 13 laptop and the smartphone simultaneously!

And with One Tap to Share technology, you can easily transfer files between your smartphone and the laptop with a simple drag-and-drop motion! Now that is truly how things should work in the life of the future!

Tip #6 : Stay Connected Indoors + Outdoors!

Digital natives get agitated whenever we lose access to the Internet. So it is critical for many people that the WiFi connectivity should not only be fast, it should be stable and reliable.

The HUAWEI WiFi Q2 Pro is a great way of delivering fast, reliable WiFi connectivity indoors and outdoors, even through large buildings. Just add satellite units to extend coverage!

Best of all – it will intelligently switch WiFi channels and hotspots to ensure you get the best possible connectivity, even as you move about!

The HUAWEI Windows 10 On ARM Laptop – Will It Succeed?

Thanks to the Trump ban, HUAWEI has been forced to shift gears, and will soon reveal a new laptop that runs Windows 10 on ARM processors, instead of Intel x86 processors!

Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming HUAWEI Windows 10 on ARM laptop, and what this would mean to you as a consumer!

 

The HUAWEI Trump Ban Strikes Again!

The HUAWEI Trump ban just scored another kill – a new HUAWEI MateBook model that was supposed to be revealed at MWC Shanghai 2019.

HUAWEI has delayed that MateBook laptop launch indefinitely, because they can no longer source components from US companies like Intel, it would not be possible to ship the new MateBook laptop.

They also “paused production” of their PC business because of supply restrictions on US components.

Recommended : The HUAWEI Trump Ban – Everything You Need To Know!

 

The Next HUAWEI Laptop Will Run Windows 10 On ARM

HUAWEI isn’t sitting still though.

The Global Times (which is part of the Chinese state media) revealed that HUAWEI will introduce a new laptop that will run Windows 10 on ARM.

Running Windows 10 on ARM would allow HUAWEI to circumvent the complete lack of access to x86 processors from both Intel and AMD.

Recommended :HUAWEI Bluetooth + WiFi + SD + Android Q Rights Restored!

 

What Are The Specifications Of This HUAWEI Laptop?

There is very little information on this HUAWEI laptop, but we can make some educated guesses.

ARM suspended their business with HUAWEI due to the Trump ban, so this HUAWEI laptop would most likely use the current Kirin 980 or the upcoming Kirin 985 mobile SoC.

Such a laptop will come with either 4 GB or 8 GB of LPDDR4X memory running at 2133 MHz, and up to 512 GB of flash storage.

It will not come with a SD card reader, but an NM card slot instead.

When Will This HUAWEI Laptop Be Launched?

Global Times claims that HUAWEI will introduce this new laptop sometime in July 2019.

Yes, that’s just weeks away, although we have to point out that the Global Times is part of the Chinese state media, and their often bombastic claims have to be taken with a pinch of salt.

What Is Windows 10 On ARM?

Windows 10 on ARM (WoA) is a Microsoft initiative to introduce the ability to run the Windows 10 operating system and apps on ARM-based systems.

Windows 10 on ARM is not new. It was first demonstrated at a Windows Hardware Engineering event in China, back in December 2016. And Microsoft later released this demo video :

From the 2018 Fall Creators Update onwards, the Pro and S editions of Windows 10 can run on systems powered by ARM64 processors.

Built-in Windows 10 apps like Edge, Cortana, the Start menu and Explorer were recompiled to run natively on ARM64 / ARM32.

Windows 10 on ARM will run ARM32 and ARM64 apps natively, and will run x86 apps under emulation.

Will The HUAWEI Windows 10 On ARM Laptop Succeed?

An analyst at the China Merchant Securities told Global Times that, “The new laptop’s system will run based on ARM architecture that supports Windows, which shows that the cut-off of some technologies has very little impact on Huawei.

Very little impact? While we admire his patriotism, that’s just utter bullshit.

Performance Limitation

The HiSilicon Kirin 980 and the upcoming Kirin 985 are flagship-class mobile SoCs, with eight ARM processor cores – four high-speed cores + four low-power cores. Its ARM Mali-G76 GPU has 10 cores running at 750 MHz.

However, they are no match for Intel Core processors, or AMD’s mobile Ryzen processors. These mobile CPUs are not only much more powerful, they have faster graphics cores that run at higher speeds.

The key advantage of ARM-based processors is power-efficiency, not raw performance.

Memory Limit

The HiSilicon Kirin 980 and Kirin 985 are designed for mobile devices. So even though they support quad memory channels, they can only support up to 8 GB of memory.

Laptops that run on x86 processors from Intel and AMD can support up to 64 GB of memory.

Windows 10 On ARM Limitations

Shifting to Windows 10 on ARM is an obvious workaround for HUAWEI’s troubles, but it is not without its own set of problems.

  • No support for 64-bit x86 apps : WoA can only run 32-bit x86 apps, which are limited to the first 4 GB of memory. 64-bit x86 apps must be recompiled into native ARM64 code to run on WoA.
  • No support for shell extensions : Apps that use shell extensions must be recompiled for ARM64 to run on WoA.
  • Limited driver support : WoA require ARM64 drivers, and (obviously) cannot use existing x86 drivers. This imposes a limit on hardware configurations that will work with WoA.
  • No OpenGL support (yet) : Windows supports OpenGL 1.1, but due to lack of NVIDIA or AMD driver support (see above), OpenGL games and apps will not run. Currently, WoA is limited to DirectX apps and games.

In other words, it will have limited access to Windows 10 apps. Even though it can run 32-bit versions in emulation mode, they will be slower and be limited to the first 4 GB of memory.

What We Think The HUAWEI Windows 10 On ARM Laptop Will Be…

If and when HUAWEI reveals their Windows 10 on ARM laptop, it will probably be a low-cost ultra-light laptop.

They will tout its long battery life and LTE connectivity, instead of its ability to run like an actual Windows 10 laptop.

Ultimately, this will be a new product segment, and an interesting one. But it will not be a true replacement for HUAWEI MateBook laptops.
