Huawei’s MateBook D 15 is an Intel-powered productivity powerhouse

May 9, 2021

Huawei have announced regional availability of the MateBook D 15, the latest notebook for vastly improved speed over its predecessor, and support for Multi-screen Collaboration to make the notebook smarter than ever before.
Featuring a FullView Display and powered by a new 11th Gen Intel Core processor, the Huawei MateBook D 15 is designed with the needs of young consumers in mind to provide incredible performance across all scenarios, from virtual lectures and productivity on-the-go to multimedia experiences.
Alongside a more powerful processor, the MateBook D 15 can also be configured with the all-new Intel Iris Xe Graphics powering faster graphics processing performance. Furthermore, innovative technologies such as Multi-screen Collaboration, Fingerprint Power button, Dual Antenna Wi-Fi 6 and Reverse Charging combine to fundamentally enhance the user experience. The features elevate the notebook from a productivity tool to a smart companion that young consumers will find indispensable across school and everyday situations.

The Huawei MateBook D features a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS anti-glare display that retains the series’ signature FullView design, offering an 87 percent screen-to-body ratio with a 16:9 aspect ratio that delivers truly immersive cinematic experiences. The 1920 x 1080 resolution display has passed TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification and Flicker Free certifications giving users a more comfortable viewing experience. The low blue light level helps reduce eye strain related to prolonged display use.
A product exemplifying Huawei’s “Pure Shape” design philosophy, the new MateBook D 15 has a minimalist look with clean, refined lines running through the metal body, creating an understated appearance in classic Space Grey.
With the notebook weighing as little as 1.56kg and measuring only 16.9mm at its thickest point, travelling with it is effortless, and the rich array of ports along the sides of the device make it ideal for any everyday task that is required.
To young consumers, a PC is not only a tool to get work done but also an entertainment platform. The MateBook D 15 is powered by a new 11th Gen Intel Core processor built on the 10nm SuperFin technology. The quad-core, eight-thread processor has faster performance than its predecessors to effortlessly handle everyday usage scenarios. Meanwhile an integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics feature provides graphics performance rivalling entry-level discrete counterparts. The new notebook can be configured with up to 16GB DDR4 dual channel memory for faster read and write. It also comes with an NVMe PCIe high speed SSD to further improve overall system performance. With a press of the Fn and P keys, users can enable Performance Mode for more demanding apps. An advanced cooling system featuring the high-density Huawei Shark fin fan and two heat pipes leverage the bionic design to ensure the MateBook D 15 performs stably under load. Furthermore, the MateBook D 15 has a new Wi-Fi 6 network interface card with a dual-antenna design to provide faster and more stable Internet connectivity.
The improved Huawei Share functionality continues to offer cross-device, cross-platform features that enable users to simultaneously take advantage of Windows and Android devices. With a single tap, a smartphone can be connected to the MateBook D 15 and be controlled with peripherals connected to the notebook. Users can edit documents saved on either device on the PC, drag files across interfaces to initiate file transfers, and seamlessly pick up voice and video calls through the notebook. In addition, the MateBook D 15 supports up to three concurrently active mobile apps to maximise the benefits of cross-device productivity.
The AC adapter that comes with the MateBook D 15 supports Huawei SuperCharge for quickly charging up compatible Huawei smartphones. Reverse charging remains active even when the MateBook D 15 is powered down, which can be helpful when users find themselves in need of a quick smartphone battery top-up while on the road.
Innovative Huawei technologies such as Fingerprint Power Button and Recessed Camera are also featured on the MateBook D 15. The notebook provides greater adaptability for users with a wide range of ports that support USB-C, HDMI and more. Add in its 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage and users have everything they need to complete any task with ease.
The Huawei MateBook D 15 i5 is available in Space Grey at a price of AED 3,399 at Huawei Experience stores, e-shop and select retailers.
