True-Chroma Displays

The HUAWEI P50 Pro comes with a large 6.6-inch True-Chroma display, with a resolution of 1228 x 2700 pixels. The P50 has a slightly smaller 6.5-inch True-Chroma display, with the same resolution.

They both use an OLED panel with a wide P3 colour gamut, with a higher maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz (P50 Pro) or 90 Hz (P50), and a maximum touch sampling rate of 300 MHz.

These True-Chroma displays also boast a 1440 Hz PWM dimming control, to reduce eyestrain, and allow for comfortable viewing experience in low-light conditions.

Protected From Water!

Both HUAWEI P50 and P50 Pro smartphones are IP68 water-resistant, so they are safe from water splashes and immersion in up to 1.5 metres of water for up to 30 minutes.

Flagship Performance!

Both HUAWEI P50 and P50 Pro smartphones are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G mobile SoC, which is kept cool by a 3D Graphene Liquid Cooling System.

  • a 64 MP 3.5X periscope telephoto camera, with f/3.5 aperture, and

The 40 MP monochrome camera complements the 50 MP camera by adding detail to the images it captures – what HUAWEI calls XD Optics with enhanced XD Fusion Pro technology.

The HUAWEI P50 has a triple camera setup that consists of :

  • a 50 MP main camera, with f/1.8 aperture,
  • a 12 MP 3.5X periscope telephoto camera, with f/3.4 aperture, and

HUAWEI nova 9 SE : Why You Should Not Miss Its Pre-Order!

Take a look at the new HUAWEI nova 9 SE smartphone, and find out why you should not miss its pre-order!

 

HUAWEI nova 9 SE : Why You Should Not Miss Its Pre-Order!

HUAWEI just launched the nova 9 SE – a phenomenal new mid-range smartphone with a 108MP camera!

Take a look at its key features, and find out why you should not miss its pre-order!

6.78-inch FullView Display

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE comes with a massive 6.78-inch FullView Display, with ultra-narrow bezels that are just 1.05 mm on each side!

This display has a FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2388 pixels, with a 90 Hz refresh rate, and a 270 Hz touch sampling rate for a much smoother visual experience!

Sleek + Trendy Design!

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE features the Star Orbit Ring design with a 3D glass back, which is very slim at just 7.94 mm, and weighs only 191 grams.

HUAWEI is also offering it in a variety of nature-inspired colours – Crystal Blue, Pearl White and Midnight Black.

108 MP AI Quad-Camera System!

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE is targeted at those who enjoy photography, and features an upgraded AI-enhanced quad camera system that consists of :

  • a 108 MP High-Resolution Camera,
  • an 8 MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera,
  • a 2 MP Depth Camera, and
  • a 2 macro camera

It is remarkable that such an affordable mid-range smartphone actually comes with a 108 MP high-resolution camera.

Not only can you capture super-high resolution 108 MP photos, it boasts a larger 1/1.52-inch sensor with Multi-Frame Fusion capability.

I cannot stress just how important that is – these technologies allow the nova 9 SE to deliver exceptional image quality even in low-light conditions.

And in super low-light conditions, it can even combine four pixels into one for shots that would not be possible on other smartphones.

16 MP Selfie Camera!

In the front, the HUAWEI nova 9 SE has a 16 MP wide-angle camera, offering the ability to capture more at high resolution.

This front camera supports 4-in-1 Pixel Binning technology that combines four pixels into one, for stunning selfies even in low-light conditions.

In addition, its Super Night Shot capability accurately recognises human faces, and optimises the background to give you well-balanced selfies at night.

Creative Blogging Features!

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE goes beyond just the camera hardware, and introduces two videography features to allow for greater creativity.

Its Continuous Front + Rear Recording capability lets you seamlessly switch between the front and rear cameras, while recording your video. You no longer have to stop recording to switch cameras, which may disrupt the recording process. It also saves you time and effort to stitch the videos together.

It also supports Dual-View Video Recording, letting you record from both the front and rear cameras at the same time. Best of all – you can continue to zoom in and out to wide-angle, for maximum creativity!

As you can see, these features not only allow you to create more unique videos, you can now literally insert yourself into, and be part of your videos!

66W SuperCharge!

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE comes with a large 4,000 mAh battery. But HUAWEI didn’t just stop there.

Its battery actually supports the 66W SuperCharge, the brand-new Low-Voltage Double Charging Pump, and Triple-Terminal Battery Charging technologies.

These battery technologies allow the nova 9 SE to charge up to 60% of its battery in just 15 minutes, with a full charge in just 36 minutes!

In case you are worried, its battery received the TÜV Rheinland Safe Fast Charge Certification, guaranteeing you a worry-free super-fast charging experience!

Did China Give These AWESOME Olympics 2022 Gifts?!

Did China give Olympics 2022 athletes AWESOME gifts like Samsung gadgets, and a personalised necklace?

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2022-02-12 : Added the actual price of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 Olympic Edition, and other updates.
Originally posted @ 2022-02-07

 

Claim : China Gave Olympics 2022 Athletes These AWESOME Gifts!

This video and message are going viral on WhatsApp, claiming to show the awesome gifts that China gave Olympic Games 2022 athletes.

A total of 2,925 athletes participated in the Winter Olympics. The country has prepared a gift bag for every athlete, which contains the latest Samsung mobile phone worth $7999, sports headphones, a unique Winter Olympics necklace and ring, and a small quilt that is close to the body.

Foreign athletes are happy when they open the gift bag. Shout out Mamma Mia, resounding throughout the sports village. The cost of the Samsung phone is no more than $3k (marketing & profits accounting for more than half the listed price).

Product placement to the 3,000 Olympian influencers will cost about $9m. Compare that with a 30-second advert slot during the Superbowl for $6m a pop. If they give a Huawei the Western press would be terrified. 🌿

 

Truth : China Did NOT Give Olympics 2022 Athletes Those Awesome Gifts!

This is yet another example of pro-China fake news circulating on WhatsApp, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was Taken By Petra Nieminen

The video was misappropriated by the fake news creator, probably because it has the comment – Beijing 2022 gifts for athletes.

This video was actually taken by Petra Nieminen, a hockey player from Finland, who was showing off the free gifts she received since arriving in Beijing for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Fact #2 : Gifts Not Prepared, Nor Given By China

The gifts Petra showed in the video were neither prepared, nor sponsored, by China – the host country for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Samsung is the worldwide sponsor of the Olympic Games, and it was they who gave the athletes the Galaxy Z Flip 3 Olympic Edition smartphone, and Galaxy Buds2 wireless earphones.

Incidentally, Samsung will also be giving them to athletes at the upcoming Paralympic Games!

The personalised necklace with the ring was given to the athletes by Lumoava – the official Olympic partner of the Finnish team.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Athletes Shouted Mamma Mia

There is no known report of any athlete shouting Mamma Mia on getting their gifts. It is also a silly claim since it’s an Italian expression.

Fact #4 : The Gifts Do Not Cost So Much

The fake news creator made up the value of these gifts, falsely claiming that the Samsung smartphone cost $7,999.

It’s likely a mistranslation from the original Chinese post, because the Galaxy Z Flip Olympic Edition smartphone costs ¥7,999 (about US$1,259 / £929 / RM5,269), while the Galaxy Buds2 cost US$149.

The personalised Lumoava Brilliance Pendant 4 necklace, which is engraved with the words “Olympic Team Finland Beijing 2022” costs €124 or about US$142.

Fact #5 : Lumoava Necklace Limited To Finnish Athletes

From what I understand, the Lumoava necklace was made specially for Finnish athletes, and was not given to athletes from other countries.

Teams from different countries received different gifts from their partners. For example, Team USA received gear from Skims, while Team Canada received special Lululemon gear.

Fact #6 : China Can Spy On Athletes Without HUAWEI Smartphones

The fake message mocked Western media for fearing HUAWEI smartphones. The truth is – China can spy on Olympic athletes without giving them HUAWEI smartphones.

All participants in the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics are required to install and use the My 2022 app, which ostensibly is used to keep everyone connected and informed about services, food, transportation, etc.

The problem is one cybersecurity researcher, Jonathan Scott, recently reverse-engineered the app, and found that it was capable of recording and sending audio to servers based in China.

It appears that Chinese netizens / 50 Cent Army are creating such fake news to cover up negative news reports of the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Since arriving in Beijing, Olympic athletes from Germany, Belgium and Russia have complained about nightmarish conditions in their quarantine hotels – bad food, poor to no Internet connectivity, no access to training equipment, or even the ability to communicate with their own teams.

Whatever their reasons may be, there is no excuse for creating and spreading fake news. Help us fight their fake news by sharing this fact check!

The HUAWEI P50 Pro comes with a large 6.6-inch True-Chroma display, with a resolution of 1228 x 2700 pixels.

The HUAWEI P50 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G mobile SoC, which is kept cool by a 3D Graphene Liquid Cooling System.

It also offers plenty of memory and storage, with two variants :

  • 12 GB of RAM with 512 GB of storage.

The Power + Volume control buttons are on the right edge

Cameras Delight!

In the front, the HUAWEI P50 Pro has a 13 MP punch hole camera, with a f/2.4 aperture.

  • a 50 MP main camera, with f/1.8 aperture,
  • a 40 MP monochrome camera, with f/1.6 aperture,
  • a 64 MP 3.5X periscope telephoto camera, with f/3.5 aperture, and

The 40 MP monochrome camera complements the 50 MP camera by adding detail to the images it captures – what HUAWEI calls XD Optics with enhanced XD Fusion Pro technology.

Long Battery Life

The HUAWEI P50 Pro comes with a large 4,360 mAh battery, which promises to last a full day of use.

On top of that, it supports 66 watt wired fast charging, with 50 watt wireless charging. Very fast indeed!

MySejahtera with MySJ Trace now available for Android + iOS!

The new MySejahtera with support for MySJ Trace is now available for all Android and iOS devices!

Here is what you need to know!

 

MySJ Trace : A New MySejahtera Feature!

MySJ Trace is a new MySejahtera feature, which allows for more accurate contact tracing using Bluetooth technology. It also removes the need to manually check out from the locations you checked in earlier.

Once enabled, your phone will automatically communicate with other phones that have MySJ Trace enabled as well, to determine the distance and length of contact. This eliminates the need to manually check-out.

This allows Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) to more accurately determine if you are a close contact of a COVID-19 positive person.

Obviously, this feature only works if everyone has MySJ Trace enabled, so its effectiveness will depend greatly on how many people activate it.

Read more : What You Need To Know About The New MySJ Trace Feature!

MySejahtera with MySJ Trace : Now Available For Android + iOS!

MySJ Trace is currently available only in MySejahtera version 1.1.3 and above.

It was first introduced in MySejahtera version 1.1.3 which is available only from the HUAWEI AppGallery

But on 25 December 2021, it was also introduced in MySejahtera version 1.1.4 in the Google Play Store, so all Android users will have access to it.

On 30 December 2021, it was finally introduced in MySejahtera version 1.1.4 in the Apple App Store, for both iPhone and iPad!

MySJ Trace : How To Enable It In MySejahtera?

MySJ Trace is (currently) NOT mandatory and is an opt-in feature, so you actually have to manually enable it, if you want to participate.

Step 1 : Update to the MySejahtera version that has MySJ Trace.

Step 2 : Open MySejahtera, and you will see a black MySJ Trace section in the default Check-in screen.

Step 3 : Tap on Setup MySJ Trace to begin the setup process.

Step 4 : Tap on the Start button in the initial explainer screen.

Step 5 : Tap the I agree button to consent to give your “interaction information” for the past 14 days to the Malaysia Ministry of Health for “contact tracing purposes”.

Step 6 : In the App Permissions screen, tap on the Allow button.

Step 7 : First, you will be asked to allow MySejahtera to access your smartphone’s location. Tap on While using the app.

Step 8 : Next, you will be asked to allow MySejahtera to detect your location all the time. Tap on Allow all the time.

Step 9 : Now, you will be asked to enable Bluetooth, if it is not already enabled.

Step 10 : Once all necessary permissions have been enabled, just tap on the Close button.

That’s it! You have now activated MySJ Trace in MySejahtera.

If at any time you do not wish to temporarily deactivate it, you can simply disable Bluetooth, and turn Bluetooth back on again when you need it.

Can HUAWEI Phones Get Free Calls + Internet From BeiDou?

Can HUAWEI smartphones get FREE calls and Internet connectivity through BeiDou satellites, without a SIM card?

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : BeiDou Gives HUAWEI Phones FREE Calls + Internet!

People have been sharing different messages on WhatsApp and Facebook, claiming that BeiDou will give every HUAWEI phone unlimited calls and Internet without a SIM card!

If u r able to change/ upgrade ur hp then u may want to consider Huawei devices.

Please buy Huawei hp because after the End of June 2020. All Huawei hp will be equipped with Huawei Own Satellite BEIDOU Chipset which will allow you to make Phone Calls and Internet DATA usages without any Charges for Life and No Sim Card is required. Save a lot of money in the long run??

Baidu is do much more powerful than old uncle Google. Baidu is the major driver for 5G, free satellite calls, wider coverage, higher speed, etc. Anyway no one can stop u fr using uncle Google if u so loved him using any type of hp (iOS, Android, Symbian of others)!! U can also VPN to tunnel into many networks & firewalls….!!

 

No, HUAWEI Phones Cannot Get FREE Calls + Internet From BeiDou!

HUAWEI offers some of the best smartphones in the market, but these claims are truly “out of this world”.

There is NO WAY that any smartphone, from HUAWEI or any other brand, that can make free calls or receive free Internet connectivity through BeiDou satellites.

These are just fake news created by the Chinese 50 Cent Army / Little Pink Army.

Fact #1 : BeiDou Is A Navigation Satellite System

BeiDou is China’s own satellite positioning and navigational system, functionally similar to GPS, GLONASS and Galileo.

So far, the Chinese have launched 59 satellites, from three generations.

Fact #2 : Final BeiDou-3 Satellite Launched In June 2020

The June 2020 date likely refers to the launch of the final BeiDou-3 satellite, which completes the BeiDou-3 satellite constellation.

The original BeiDou-1 satellites were decommissioned at the end of 2012.

Fact #3 : Smartphones Have Supported BeiDou For Years

The first smartphones to support BeiDou were introduced in 2013. It’s not like BeiDou is only being introduced after June 2020.

Fact #4 : HUAWEI Supports Multiple Satellite Systems

HUAWEI, like many other brands, have long introduced multi-constellation support for navigational signals.

Their smartphones not only support GPS, but also BeiDou, GLONASS, and Galileo, switching to whichever satellite system offers the best performance or accuracy.

Fact #5 : BeiDou Is Supported By Foreign Mobile Platforms

BeiDou civilian signals can be used by foreign mobile platforms, and are in fact supported by Samsung Exynos and MediaTek mobile platforms.

Qualcomm, for example, introduced support for BeiDou signals in their Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) platform back in 2013. So did MediaTek with their MT3332 / MT3333 SoCs.

So many non-HUAWEI smartphones use chipsets that support BeiDou.

Fact #6 : BeiDou Cannot Provide Calls / Internet Connectivity

BeiDou is primarily a global positioning satellite system, with limited communications capability – just short messaging services (SMS).

However, only the military (or related security services like civil defence) are given access to the BeiDou SMS service, using special satellite phones.

Civilian devices, like HUAWEI smartphones, can only use its positioning services, and have NO ACCESS to any communications capability.

A CGTN news report is probably responsible for this misunderstanding (watch our video above).

Fact #7 : Calls + Internet Still Require A SIM Card / eSIM

While the HUAWEI P40 series smartphones support eSIM, other HUAWEI smartphones still require a physical SIM card.

But whether your smartphone uses a physical SIM card or eSIM, it needs some sort of SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) number to obtain call and Internet services from your mobile service provider.

Fact #8 : HUAWEI Offers A Free Video Call Service

HUAWEI introduced a new video call feature called MeeTime, which allows all HUAWEI devices to make video calls for free.

This includes tablets like the HUAWEI MatePad Pro, and computers like the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro.

However, MeeTime requires Internet connectivity, and no, HUAWEI is not giving you free Internet connectivity to use MeeTime.

Seriously, no one can give you free Internet connectivity. Not even Apple.

66W SuperFast Charging Battery!

The new HUAWEI MateBook 14s is their latest computing lynchpin in that strategy, as an affordable, high-performance laptop for business professionals.

The HUAWEI MateBook 14s is powered by the latest 11th Gen Intel Core processors, with two variants at present :

  • Intel Core i7-11370H : 4C / 8T, 12 MB cache, up to 4.8 GHz
  • Intel Core i5-11300H : 4C / 8T, 8 MB cache, up to 4.4 GHz

Both variants feature the latest Intel Iris Xe Graphics, with these RAM + storage options :

  • Core i7 variant : 16 GB RAM + 1 TB NVMe SSD storage
  • Core i5 variant : 8 GB RAM + 512 GB NVMe SSD storage

And if you need additional performance, you can activate its Performance Mode. By simply pressing the Fn+P key combo, the CPU TDP will be boosted to 45W, giving you a boost in CPU performance!

All that is powered by a 60 Who battery, and a pocketable 90W power adapter that supports HUAWEI Super Charge. A quick 15 minute charge gives you up to 3 hours of battery life.

Multimedia Prowess

Whether it’s for work or entertainment, the HUAWEI MateBook 14s will surely impress with its four speaker system.

Powered by HUAWEI SOUND, these speakers produce an enveloping virtual surround sound field around the user, which can be further adjusted using the four pre-set audio modes.

The MateBook 14s also features a quad-microphone system, which works with the new HUAWEI Personal Voice Enhancement technology, to intelligently isolate and boost your voice while cutting out ambient noise.

Its four microphones, which are placed along the laptop edges, can pick-up audio from sources up to 5 metres away, and ensure that you are clearly heard, even in noisy environments.

HUAWEI Innovation

The HUAWEI MateBook 14s is designed to work with other HUAWEI ecosystem devices, as part of their 1+8+N concept. Hence, it comes with a bevy of innovative tools for multi-device sharing and collaboration!

  • The Mirror Mode lets you mirror the MateBook 14s display onto a HUAWEI tablet, letting you use those devices as a digital drawing pad.
  • You can also use Mirror Mode to allow different groups to collaborate on the same content.
  • The Extend Mode lets your HUAWEI tablet serve as a secondary display, giving you more space to work with, or letting you play music / video while you work.
  • The Collaborate Mode lets you easily and wirelessly transfer content between the MateBook 14s and another HUAWEI device! You can just drag and drop the files you want using the mouse!
  • The Collaborate Mode also lets you use your laptop keyboard and mouse with your HUAWEI tablet or smartphone!

It Can Run Mobile Apps!

The HUAWEI MateBook 14s comes with the beta version of Mobile Apps Engine, which lets you run mobile apps (like WeChat, for example) directly on the laptop!

This not only lets you have a bigger, more expansive view of your mobile apps, you can now have two mobile accounts – one for personal use, one for work or business use.

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!

HONOR MagicBook X 15 : What You Need To Know!

HONOR just launched two new MagicBook X 15 laptop models. Let’s take a closer look and see what they really offer!

 

HONOR MagicBook X 15 : What You Need To Know!

Together with the HONOR 50 and HONOR 50 Pro smartphones, HONOR also launched two new MagicBook X 15 laptop models.

These basic laptops are part of the HUAWEI 1+8+N strategy, back when HONOR was a HUAWEI subsidiary.

And these two models appear to be a legacy of their HUAWEI heritage. We will show you why we say that…

Legacy Of HUAWEI Ban Persists

Despite being new models, the HONOR MagicBook X 15 are still powered by the 10th Gen Intel Core processors from 2019.

This appears to be a legacy of their HUAWEI heritage – HUAWEI was banned from purchasing new processors from Intel since September 2020.

They had already stocked up many processors in advanced of the ban, but can no longer purchase newer Intel processors.

The new HONOR, which was sold to Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology, is no longer affected by this ban. But it looks like they were not able to source for the latest Intel processors in time.

Performance

There are two HONOR MagicBook X 15 models, based on their processor and storage configurations :

  • 10th Gen Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 512GB storage
  • 10th Gen Intel Core i3, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage

HONOR claims that they come with a Supersized Shark Fin 2.0 Fan with up to 38% higher air intake, for better cooling performance.

They use DDR4 memory and come with a PCIe NVMe SSD, but that’s standard for laptops these days.

Display

The HONOR MagicBook X 15 comes with a large 15.6-inch display, with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Thanks to its narrow 5.3 mm bezels on the left and right side, this display offers a 87% screen-to-body ratio.

Battery Life

The 2021 MagicBook X 15 models come with a 42 Wh battery, which HONOR says will deliver just over 7.5 hours of 1080p video playback or just over 7 hours of web browsing.

They will come with a new compact 65 watt fast charger that weighs just 200 grams. It can recharge the battery to 53% in just 30 minutes.

Other Features

Despite its low cost, it boasts an aluminium alloy body, which allows for a thinner profile and a lighter weight at just 1.56 kg.

It also comes with a fingerprint sensor built into the power button, that lets you quickly log into Windows.

Finally, it supports Multi-Screen Collaboration – another legacy of its HUAWEI heritage.

 

HONOR MagicBook X 15 : Price + Deal

The HONOR MagicBook X 15 is available in Malaysia starting 19 June 2021, at these price points :

  • Intel Core i5, 8GB + 512GB : RM 2,899 (about US$700 / £504 / A$929 / S$938)
  • Intel Core i3, 8GB + 256GB : RM 2,299 (about US$555 / £400 / A$737 / S$744)

On its launch date, every purchase of the MagicBook X 15 will come with :

  • Intel Core i5 : HONOR laptop backpack + Bluetooth wireless mouse
  • Intel Core i3 : HONOR laptop backpack

Here is what you need to know about the 2021 HUAWEI MatePad Pro tablet!

 

2021 HUAWEI MatePad Pro : What You Need To Know!

The 2021 HUAWEI MatePad Pro looks superficially like the 2020 HUAWEI MatePad Pro, but they are quite different beasts altogether.

It is now much bigger 12.6-inch tablet, built around the Kirin 9000E mobile platform and runs on the brand new HarmonyOS 2 operating system!

Flagship Performance

The 2021 HUAWEI MatePad Pro is built around the Kirin 9000E, the world’s first 5nm 5G mobile SoC.

It has a triple-core CPU architecture, with a boosted Cortex-A77 core at 3.13 GHz, three high-speed Cortex-A77 cores at 2.54 GHz, and four low-power Cortex-A55 cores at 2.05 GHz.

It has a 22-core Mali-G78 GPU, and two Neural Processing Units – one Big-Core NPU and one Tiny-Core NPU.

Memory + Storage

The 2021 MatePad Pro comes with 8 GB LPDDR4x memory and 256 GB built-in storage, with the option of adding an NM card for additional storage (up to 256 GB).

Large OLED Display

The 2021 HUAWEI MatePad Pro sports a massive 12.6-inch OLED display, with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.

Thanks to its ultra-narrow 5.6 mm bezels, this FullView Display offers a 90.1% screen-to-body ratio.

On top of that, it has a colour accuracy of ∆E < 0.5, making it a great portable second monitor for professional photographers!

Improved HUAWEI Share Capabilities

The 2021 HUAWEI MatePad Pro offers improved HUAWEI Share, offering the next level of device connectivity :

You can not only mirror your HUAWEI smartphone onto your tablet, you can also transfer and share files across multiple devices even laptops, simply by dragging and dropping them!

2nd Generation HUAWEI M-Pencil

HUAWEI is introducing the 2nd generation M-Pencil with the MatePad Pro. This optional stylus has a much lower input lag – as low as 9 ms, with 4,096 levels of pressure and tilt sensitivity.

Designed to give you the natural writing experience, it offers the feel of a real pencil on paper. It also supports HUAWEI FreeScript, which transforms handwritten content into machine-encoded text in real time.

If you need to switch into different modes like Instant Shape or Instant Table, all you need to do is double-tap it!

HUAWEI Smart Magnetic Keyboard

The HUAWEI Smart Magnetic Keyboard is a full-sized keyboard with a key travel of 1.3 mm; and supports Bluetooth and wireless charging.

This magnetically-paired keyboard quickly converts the MatePad Pro into a full-fledged laptop, offering greater working productivity.

Large Battery + Super Fast Charging

The 2021 HUAWEI MatePad Pro tablet comes with a large 10,050 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery built-in for a very long battery life.

On top of that, it supports 40 watt SuperCharge, when used with a 40 watt HUAWEI Super Fast Charger.

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)

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.

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!

It consists of not just the two MateBook D 15 variants, but also the MateBook D 14, the MateBook 14 and the MateBook X Pro!

 

2021 HUAWEI MateBook D 15 Laptops : Two Variants

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.

To make it easier for you to compare them, we created this table comparing their key specifications :

2021 HUAWEI MateBook D 15 Laptops : Key Features

Let’s take a look at their 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.

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

Keyboard + Touchpad

The 2021 MateBook D 15 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 15 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 D 15 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 D 15 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 D 15 Laptops : Price + Deals!

The 2021 HUAWEI MateBook D 15 comes in the Mystic Silver colour, with these official launch prices :

  • 11th Gen Edition : RM 3,899 (about US$947 / £678 / A$1,218 / S$1,258)
  • 10th Gen Edition : RM 3,299 (about US$802 / £574 / A$1,030 / S$1,064)

The first 1,500 customers to pre-order the 10th Gen or 11th Gen Edition from 20 to 23 April 2021, will receive free gifts worth RM 800 :

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

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.

HUAWEI New Year Gift Scam : Don’t Click Or Share!

Watch out for the HUAWEI New Year Gift scam that’s circulating on WhatsApp!

Do NOT click or share. Just delete it, and WARN YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS!

 

HUAWEI New Year Gift Scam : Do NOT Click Or Share!

Scammers are sending out this message on WhatsApp, claiming that HUAWEI is giving away New Year gifts.

Please do NOT click on the message, or share it. Just delete it and warn your family and friends!

 

Why This HUAWEI New Year Gift Offer Is A Scam

Let us show you why this HUAWEI New Year Gift offer (and similar offers) is just a scam.

If you spot any of these warning signs, BACK OFF and DO NOT PROCEED!

Warning Sign #1 : Not Using The Real HUAWEI Domain

A genuine HUAWEI campaign would use the real HUAWEI domain – www.huawei.com.

The use of a different domain (2021-whatsapp3w.bar) should warn you that this is not a legitimate HUAWEI website.

Warning Sign #2 : HUAWEI Does Not Give Away Free Gifts

HUAWEI is a for-profit corporation whose goal is to make money, not give it away.

They are not a charity, and will never give free gifts to celebrate a new year, or anniversary.

They only give free gifts to promote the purchase of their latest products.

Warning Sign #3 : Ridiculous Prizes

While brands may sometimes give away branded swag like a face mask, a t-shirt, or a cap; they will NEVER give away CASH as a prize.

And there is no way they would give away US$5,000 cash prizes. That’s just nuts! It should be cheaper to just give away one of their latest Mate 40 Pro smartphones.

HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro Black : A Hands-On Experience!

We had the opportunity to try out the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro, and here is our hands-on experience of the Black model!

 

HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro Black : A Hands-On Experience!

The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro is the mainstream model in the HUAWEI Mate 40 series. Its Black colour option has a highly-reflective glass surface.

Built around the new Kirin 9000 mobile platform, our review sample comes with 8 GB of LPDDR5 memory and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.

The HUAWEI Kirin 9000 is the world’s first 5nm 5G SoC, with :

  • a high-speed Arm Cortex-A77 core running at 3.13 GHz,
  • three sustained-performance Arm Cortex-A77 cores running at 2.54 GHz, and
  • four low-power Arm Cortex-A55 cores running at 2.05 GHz
  • two Big-Core NPUs + 1 Tiny-Core NPU
  • integrated HUAWEI Balong 5000 multi-mode 5G modem

 

Its Horizon Display has 88° curved edges on both sides, which supports virtual controls, even though it comes with physical volume control buttons.

This 6.75-inch OLED display boasts a resolution of 1344 x 2772 pixels, a 90 Hz refresh rate and a 240 Hz touch sampling rate.

The display has a pill-shaped punch hole, which conceals its 13 MP front camera (f/2.4 aperture) and a 3D depth sensor. It doesn’t have an LED flash but uses screen flash instead.

Arranged in its Space Ring design at the back, its Leica triple camera system is made up of :

  • a 50 MP main camera, with f/1.9 aperture,
  • a 20 MP ultra-wide camera, with f/1.8 aperture,
  • a 12 MP periscope camera with 5X optical zoom, and
  • a laser autofocus system.

The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro comes with an IR emitter at the top, with a pair of microphone and speakers.

A second set of microphone and speaker is located at the bottom, next to the USB Type C port and the hybrid SIM tray.

Its double-sided hybrid SIM tray supports either two nano SIM cards, or a single nano SIM card with a HUAWEI NM card. The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro also supports an eSIM.

The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro is powered by a 4,400 mAh battery, and supports both 66 watt wired charging and 50 watt wireless charging.

It comes with a 66 watt HUAWEI SuperCharge adaptor in the box, allowing for super-fast charging.

HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro Mystic Silver : Hands-On Preview!

HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro Mystic Silver : A Hands-On Experience!

The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro is the mainstream model in the HUAWEI Mate 40 series, with Mystic Silver as a signature colour.

Mystic Silver has a matte finish, with a colour gradient that changes hue at different angles.

Built around the new Kirin 9000 mobile platform, our review sample comes with 8 GB of LPDDR5 memory and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
