August 31, 2021

Grounded by extensive research and in-depth understanding of gamers’ needs and behaviour, Huawei officially launched the HUAWEI MateView GT – its first immersive surround screen monitor that is designed for gamers and users seeking next level audio and visual entertainment.

The HUAWEI MateView GT features a 34-inch screen with a screen resolution of 3440 x 1440 and an ultra-wide aspect ratio of 21:9, giving approximately 33 percent more viewing area than most mainstream 16:9 screens.

The refresh rate is the key defining feature for any gaming monitor, and is usually associated with the quality of the display. While the basic entry-level monitors are usually capable of running up to 60Hz, the refresh rate for higher-end gaming monitors can oftentimes be up to 160Hz.

The HUAWEI MateView GT also comes with the Dark Field Control and Crosshairs feature to elevate their FPS gameplay experience. Leveraging the Dark Field Control, users can adjust the display brightness and contrast at any single moment to help them gain an edge over their hidden in-game enemies. Users can also take advantage of the Crosshairs feature to overlay their game with a crosshair and help them drastically improve their aiming.

The HUAWEI MateView GT sports an innovative and functional unibody SoundBar design which serves as a monitor base as well as powerful dual speakers. The Soundbar supports touch control for the volume, highly convenient and intuitive even during gameplay. It also features an RGB lighting hub with 36 individually addressable RGB lights, offering an extensive range of colour-changing options. What’s more, users can customise their favourite lighting effects. Coupled with the intelligent noise-cancelling microphone at the top of the monitor, HUAWEI MateView GT can create an ultimate atmosphere for gamers.

Extended gaming sessions may cause damage to the eye. The HUAWEI MateView GT has passed the TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification, meaning it is more than capable of filtering out harmful blue light during games. The monitor also supports DC Dimming technology, eliminating screen flickering which accelerates cause eye fatigue.
