Huawei MateBook 14s: Huawei’s new ultra-portable computer

Huawei has officially presented a file MateBook 14s At a conference in Paris today. The opportunity of the manufacturer, diversifying, to further expand its range with new high-performance laptops and directly under Windows 11.

Manufacture of Huawei MateBook 14s

The Huawei computer is so portable that we can’t really consider it an ultrabook, even if it’s very close to it, it still remains a little thicker and for good reason, the connection is more complete than in Ultra-thin computer.

We find here MateBook 14s and aluminum, with sand blown at very high pressure on the material, for an incredibly smooth finish. computer weighs 1.43 kg and do it 16.7 mm to the max. In addition, Huawei has brought out the big game in terms of technology with laser welding of the rubber parts, so as not to leave unsightly traces of the connection between two parts.

MateBook 14s performance

The computer is equipped with the latest generation of processors Intel Core i7 11370H, 16 GB of RAM in LPDDR4x and 512 GB of storage by NVME SSD. There is also a version with Core i5, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, as well as the latest version with an i7 with EVO certification, 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage.

In terms of cooling, the air volume is increased by 25% thanks to the Performance mode and the height of the fan blades is increased by 16% compared to what Huawei was already doing. Bigger fans and more air coming out means better cooling and greater performance for a CPU that can exceed 4GHz. Simply activate the performance boost via the key combination FN + P.

MateBook 14s screen

Like many smartphones, starting with the Realme 6, the MateBook is accustomed to the idea that better fluidity is a greater convenience of use. Thus, it adopts a slab with A Frequency 90 Hz, which is very rare on PC today. Just do FN + R to activate 90 Hz.

As for resolution, it’s a 2.5K panel in 3:2 . ratio, the format that Huawei prefers on its work computers, such as the MateBook 14s. There’s also coverage of the DCI-P3 color space with 1.07 billion colors, a brightness of 400 nits, and a touchscreen display. The contrast is 1500:1, which is great for a good visual comfort.

Farewell to the pop-up camera in the F7 key, Huawei adopts a micro-format camera on the top of the computer screen. I really want to say it’s much better at one point, and very bad at another. The level of secrecy, it was perfect for a double chin level too stressful for some (myself included), and wasn’t very helpful. However, the risk of your webcam being hacked is minimal.

The screen also benefits from TÜV Rheinland certification, due to its very reliable blue light emission but its perfect quality, we’ll have the chance to see this in our full PC test.

Pleasant sound quality

The MateBook 14s has 4 speakers with well-made bass and audio reproduction studied with Harman/Kardon. To capture sound, it has four microphones as well as an artificial intelligence that recognizes the voice of the person speaking in a call, for example, to remove external noise from it.

Say goodbye to cats meowing and doors squeaking during Telegram, Skype, Teams, Zoom or Google Meet calls.

Connection and battery in the forum

We have a fairly complete connection on this computer, which is:

  • 1 USB-A
  • 1 USB-C
  • 1 USB-C / Thunderbolt 4
  • 1 HDMI port
  • Single port socket

The computer recharges via USB-C, so there is a second port available for data transfer. However, I also appreciate having the HDMI connection on this laptop very much. How often do you need an adapter just to connect to HDMI … Here, useless, a computer is enough.
