HUAWEI MateBook 16s and MatePad 11.5” (LTE) Bringing You The Latest Smart Office Features 

SINGAPORE, 4 September 2023 – Introducing the latest Smart Office Duo, HUAWEI MateBook 16s powered by a brand-new 13th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor and HUAWEI MatePad 11.5” (LTE) that boasts a cutting-edge HarmonyOS 3.1[1] operating system. As part of the HUAWEI Super Device ecosystem, enjoy seamless connectivity and file transferring between devices with just a simple drag-to-connect gesture.

Brighter Visuals than Ever with HUAWEI MateBook 16s 2.5K Touch Screen Display

The HUAWEI MateBook 16s inherits the 2.5K 16-inch Touch Screen from the previous generation and upgrades the brightness and clarity of the screen by taking it from 300nits to 400nits2. This means you can visualise your work better or watch your favourite film on a more brilliant screen, while also easily navigating across files and pages with the 10-point touch screen feature.

With Great Power Comes Better Handling of Responsibilities

As work gets more and more hectic and diversified in needs, users are demanding better performing computers that can handle fast-paced work scenarios. Thanks to the all-new 13th Generation Intel® Core™ i9-13900H, the HUAWEI MateBook 16s brings much-enhanced performance with a TDP of up to 60W[2]

With 14 cores and 20 threads, the highest turbo frequency reached 5G Hz. Meanwhile, the processor also adopts a hybrid architecture of performance and energy-efficient cores. The performance cores (P cores) handles heavy-duty tasks such as gaming, real-time rendering, and video clipping, whereas the E-core handles light-load or background tasks, such as rendering output, downloading tasks, audio, etc., and intelligently plan resources according to task requirements to ensure the right task is run with the right core. 

When it comes to make-or-break work presentations, which are often executed via online meetings now, it might get frustrating when large files and applications lag when opening or when you’re scrolling through them. Super Turbo solves these issues in the system and alleviates anxieties around PC performance in and out of the office. By switching Super Turbo on, users can open 1GB files (such as 150-page PowerPoints) faster than before. 

Anti-Interference Network Stability and Smart Features You Can Rely On

Equipped with Huawei’s very own metamaterial antenna – HUAWEI Metaline antenna, MateBook 16s can achieve a long-distance connection of up to 270 meters[3], while ensuring users still enjoy a smooth and stable internet signal. The HUAWEI Metaline antenna has wall penetration capabilities too, allowing you to enjoy long-term stable connectivity even when you’re working rooms away from the router.

The HUAWEI MateBook 16s also takes smart conferencing a step further. AI Camera and AI Sound optimises the conferencing experience, protecting the user’s privacy with virtual background, noise-cancellation algorithm, and keeping you in the centre of your big presentations with FollowCam. Personal Voice Enhancement5 allows users to enhance their voice when presenting and suppress distracting background noises, allowing you to create a private and quiet meeting space even on the go. This edition of the PC also allows users to connect wireless or Type-C earphones, supporting more earphones to suit the user’s needs.   

Enjoy seamless connectivity between devices with Super Device[4] too, which allows users to instantly connect their devices to the PC with just an easy drag and drop. No longer will you need wires to bring together various external devices or conduct file transfers! In fact, you can even have multiple configurations using Super Device for differing needs. 

With so many smart features, Huawei brings users closer to a future of seamless AI Living, where tasks can be centralised and executed more intelligently, adding more convenience to our lives. The HUAWEI MateBook 16s is also a milestone in this progress and helps users achieve their passions and career goals easier by eliminating the accumulation of small, frustrating technological roadblocks that bog you down in the long run.
