Huawei hijacked AMD’s COMPUTEX 2018 appearance to announce their new MacBook-killer laptop — the Huawei MateBook D 14.
As what you’d expect, the Huawei MateBook D 14 is powered by AMD hardware. This is the successor to last year’s MateBook D. This time, Huawei ditched both Intel and NVIDIA’s components in lieu of an AMD Ryzen 5 2500U processor and Radeon Vega 8 mobile GPU.
With such hardware, the Huawei MateBook D14 can easily do on-the-go gaming and creative work. However, Huawei is still marketing it as a for-professionals machine, which might appeal to creatives who require a laptop with serious power for apps like Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop, and what not.
Huawei MateBook D14 comes with a 14-inch 1080p IPS screen, a quad-speaker arrangement, and Dolby Atmos built-in. The new machine also joins the bandwagon as it uses a USB Type-C port to charge it. But don’t worry, as we’re still seeing a couple of legacy ports such as USB Type-A and HDMI.
One of the great things about this machine is its portability. This thing is just 16mm thick, which is almost the size of two stacked iPhones. It also weighs 3.19 pounds which is still light. Inside it has a 57.4Wh battery to juice it up.
The company is yet to announce the official pricing and availability of the Huawei MateBook D 14 so stay tuned for that.
