Huawei’s latest flagship laptop has finally made its debut on the global market. The company l the new model at a press launch event. This MateBook 14 is a compact notebook focused on productivity. It runs a 13.3-inch OLED display with 144Hz refresh rate and 16:9 aspect ratio for better visual experience. There is no touchpad or fingerprint scanner in this new design. However, it comes with 2MP front camera as well as an 8 MP rear primary lens. While that isn’t a huge upgrade from the MateBook 13, it offers great performance and battery life.
The new Huawei MateBook 14 also supports Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.1 and USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 1, allowing connecting any device to your PC with just three clicks. Additionally, there are two Thunderbolt 4 ports which support fast charging (30W), high-speed 3200MHz SSD drive and more. This ensures faster data transfer and storage access, including making for faster file transfer over your wireless network connection. Besides all of this, you can get up to 10 hours of battery life. For users wanting long battery life, there is even talk time support. Although not a big upgrade from the MateBook 13, this newest model gives buyers more options when buying laptops.
On the design front, MateBook 14 features a full aluminum body, which is lighter than previous generations and is designed to be portable. But what makes this laptop unique is its keyboard cover that can rest flat against the back, leaving plenty of space to write and type or use other apps or tools on the keyboard.
This design also comes along with adaptive keys, enabling you to switch between hot keys that are more comfortable while typing, a “dive” mode for less screen scrolling, which helps you stay focused on tasks for longer, a 360-degree touchscreen, and a power button. We also like how well the laptop is cooled, with ample airflow to handle anything you might have dropped.
We find the best value in the MateBook 14’s dual HD screen with 1920×1080 resolution. Its large 60Hz panel provides crisp visuals and detailed graphics. In addition to being good enough for editing and video editing, we have no issues installing various apps or media files onto this laptop. We also feel fairly confident using the external drive if we were willing to sacrifice some storage space on this tiny computer. And thanks to the powerful hardware inside, we have had no trouble running basic office applications on top of our regular Windows desktop without issue. Despite these qualities, I would still like to see improved connectivity here from the original MateBook 13.
As expected, Huawei’s latest Notebook 14 is powered by the same Kirin 9000 processor as the MateBook 13. Alongside this, the battery life and performance of the MateBook 14 improves by around 17% compared to last year’s MateBook 13. As far as the internals go, the MateBook 14 features an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 11700U CPU core, paired with Adreno 650 GPU and Mali 400 GPU for decent graphics work. This means, when installed in low-power situations, the MateBook 14 will not drain your battery in no time. But, we find it is best to keep things under control when storing important documents or photos on this, so we would advise avoiding such heavy usage for this day, or possibly next one.
The MateBook 14 starts at $1,199 USD and is available for purchase now.
