Huawei showcases office solutions making an appearance soon in Singapore

*Updated: 15 August 14:15 with pricing information and roadshow details. *                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

During Huawei's APAC Smart Office Launch 2022 in Thailand, the company showed off a wide range of Smart Office products that are coming for APAC customers.

These include the Huawei MateBook X Pro, Huawei MatePad Pro 11, Huawei MateBook D 16, Huawei MateBook 16s, Huawei MateView SE, Huawei WiFi Mesh3 and AX3 Pro, Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2, Huawei Stylish Backpack and Huawei Wireless Mouse.

Of these, we’ll be looking at the main devices as they are intended for business use.

Louie Lyu, the President of Huawei Device Asia Pacific said:

Huawei focuses on 1+8+N concept to connect a wide range of products and serve five scenarios better, including Smart Office, Fitness & Health, Entertainment, Smart Home, and Easy Travel.

Huawei’s 1+8+N strategy has a smartphone centrally connecting and controlling the broader devices that form its wider ecosystem. The N refers to the third-party IoT devices which can be connected using Huawei HiLink and Huawei Share technologies.

And since 2018, Huawei has been working to build out its smart office framework, based on two core capabilities - cross-device collaboration and ecosystem integration.

For example, the MateBook 14s can be paired to a MatePad so the MatePad can be used as a secondary display. The MateBook 14s also pairs quickly with Huawei's wireless headphones like the FreeBuds.

Huawei’s latest release of this strategy extends its “Drag- to-Connect” capabilities to more devices, streamlining the process of connecting and interacting on multiple devices.


Huawei MateBook X Pro

Coming in three colours and a metallic finish for the premium model, the new Huawei MateBook X Pro is designed for creators and is the first to support Huawei’s upgraded Super Turbo technology.

SuperTurbo is a system designed to give a boost to the performance of PCs. It optimises power consumption and works to achieve a more efficient and intelligent hardware functioning management.

Weighing 1.26kg, the MateBook X Pro comes with a 14.2-inch display with a 3,120 x 2,080 resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. It is also certified that it meets Intel Evo criteria and comes powered by Intel 12th Gen Core processors. But it only comes with Intel Iris Xe graphics due to Huawei having “logistical issues with regards to graphics cards” the company explained.

To meet the demand for communications on the move for hybrid workers, the MateBook X Pro has a new AI camera that comes with new gestures for the touchpad so that functionality is increased during video conferencing.

Included as well is Super Device. This is the Huawei term for the experience you get throughout their ecosystem. For example, if you use a Huawei smartphone, connect it to a Huawei MateBook X Pro, and you can use the same smartphone on it in the same way you’re used to. Want to print? Drag the printer and PC icons together and get it done. And it will all connect and work…seamlessly.


Huawei MatePad Pro 11

The 11-inch Huawei MatePad Pro 11 comes with an OLED “Real Color” display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate. Weighing just 440g and a maximum thickness of 5.9mm, Huawei calls the MatePad Pro 11 “the lightest and thinnest 11-inch premium tablet of their brand”.

It also comes with two cameras, a 13MP main and 8MP ultrawide camera.

Multi-tasking is one key aspect of tablets so the Huawei MatePad Pro 11 deals with this by using what the company calls, Multi-Window.

Accessories this time round include the 1.5mm detachable Huawei Smart Magnetic Keyboard, although it does call to mind a Microsoft Surface Tablet.  Included is also the newly-enhanced Huawei M-Pencil (2nd generation) that now comes in white.

One new feature on the MatePad Pro 11 is Huawei Sound. Called a “first on a tablet” by Huawei, it offers users an instant cinematic immersion with six speakers.


Huawei MateView SE

Shipping in only one size, the Huawei MateView SE, is a 23.8-inch IPS monitor.

With a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, 75Hz refresh rate, and a 16:9 aspect ratio, the panel also offers 90% DCI-P3 and sRGB colour space coverages, plus a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 250 nits of peak brightness.

To prevent eye-strain, the monitor also comes with an e-book mode that uses an e-paper, ink-on-paper effect, to make long-term editing and reading comfortable.

So users don’t strain their neck or eyes, the Adjustable Swivel Stand supports pivot rotation from 0° to 90°vertical pivot 0mm to 110mm up and down height adjustment, from -5°to 18° pitch angle adjustment and includes VESA wall mounting.


Huawei MateBook 16 series *update*

There are two models in the Huawei MateBook 16 series – the MateBook D 16 and MateBook 16s.

While both laptops come with 12th Gen Intel Core Processors, the MateBook 16s packs Intel's Evo-certified i9-12900H Processor and features a 2,520 x 1,680 resolution for its 16-inch touchscreen display. It also has a 1080p AI camera with AI sound, which keeps video calls crystal clear.

The MateBook D 16 has a 16-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200, all in a lightweight chassis at 18.4mm thick and weighing just 1.7kg. It comes powered by up to a 12th Gen Intel Core i7-12700H processor.

It also comes with Huawei’s new charger as well as support for fast charging.
