HUAWEI MateBook 13, MateBook D 15, MatePad Pro Ready for Pre-Order

The HUAWEI laptops are finally coming to Singapore. It was supposed to launch last year but was scrapped due to US blacklisting. Now, the HUAWEI MateBook 13 and MateBook D 15, together with the HUAWEI MatePad Pro tablet are here.

If you are using the Huawei products like their mobile phones, I think the Huawei laptops will be even more interesting. For example, their laptop charger is a 65w USB charger which also supports FastCharging on Huawei’s phones. They are super small.

The MateBook 13 and MateBook D are slightly different. For example, the MateBook 13 does not have any USB port, has Intel 10th generation chipset, and has 2 USB-C ports.

The MateBook D 15 comes with USB-C port, USB-A ports, HDMI port, and has AMD Ryzen chipset. I suggest that you check out the specs below.

And for the HUAWEI MatePad Pro, if you purchase it now, you can get the magnetic keyboard and M-Pencil as a bundle.

And BTW, the M-Pencil can be wireless charged via the MatePad Pro.

The MatePad Pro can also transform into a PC-like setting which Huawei called it the PC Mode.

And the MatePad Pro can be wirelessly charged. It also comes with the reverse charge feature.

However, do note that HUAWEI MatePad Pro does not have GMS (Google Mobile Services). Instead, it is powered by HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) and running on EMUI 10 which base is Android 10. You will not get Google Playstore. Instead, you will get Huawei AppGallery.
