With the HUAWEI MateBook D 16, heavy laptop users can be confident that their eyes are protected thanks to the TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light (Hardware Solution) certification. This accurately reproduces the colours of the images without leading to a yellow cast, while also protecting the user’s eyes. In addition, the display also adopts DC dimming to help users alleviate eye fatigue. The laptop also supports 100% sRGB colour gamut, the display is capable of displaying richer details and more vivid colours for greater visual enjoyment, bringing a more immersive viewing experience to users.

What is more? Users can be productive on the move with the HUAWEI MateBook D 16’s high portability thanks to its light metallic body of weighing similar as a 15.6-inch laptop at just 1.7kg.

Super Device for a smart experience

The HUAWEI MateBook D 16 takes multi-device collaboration to a whole new level, thanks to Super Device, bringing super productivity with a cohesive multi-device experience. It lets you effortlessly connect to other Huawei devices nearby, and collaborate between them all. Simply place your Huawei earphones, mice, keyboards, speakers and printers close to the HUAWEI MateBook D 16, and the laptop will automatically discover them and provide a prompt for quick and easy pairing. 

In addition, with smartphones like the newly launched HUAWEI P50 and tablets like the 12.6-inch HUAWEI MatePad Pro, it is even more useful. Once you have wirelessly connected your phone, you will see its UI (User Interface) appear on your laptop screen, so you can operate it as if your smartphone and laptop are one device. You can access and edit your files, use and manage up to three phone app windows simultaneously, take video or audio calls from your phone through your MateBook, and even use your mouse and keyboard to control your smartphone. 

Your tablet can be transformed into a drawing pad or second screen, with documents, images and more seamlessly shared between the two. In Mirror Mode, the laptop screen is projected onto the tablet, with both devices showing the same content: the tablet can benefit from the laptop’s incredible performance; while the laptop can access the tablet’s stylus, making drawing even easier. With Extend Mode, the laptop display is extended to the tablet, allowing the tablet to serve as an external monitor so you can scroll and browse easily between the two – perfect for making notes during a class or meeting. Finally, Collaborate Mode lets you share content between the devices via a simple drag and drop, so anything left on one can easily be transferred to the other.

The HUAWEI MateBook D 16 can also connect to a HUAWEI MateView monitor, so you can see your work on an even larger screen. The laptop also supports multi-device file management and AI search; the former enables users to easily search across their connected devices, bringing a collaborative experience between laptops and other connected devices, while the latter supports quick search of files and images on the PC, the Internet, and other interconnected devices for greater flexibility.

Smart conference calls anytime, anywhere

As hybrid office working is gradually becoming the norm, people are in need for an immersive, safe, and efficient meeting experience in complex environments. In view to this, the HUAWEI MateBook D 16 is dedicated to building a meeting space anytime, anywhere with its Smart Conference solution that features AI Sound and AI Camera. The crystal clear 1080P AI Camera makes video conferencing a delight, thanks to the picture quality and smart AI features. 

During a video call, the AI Camera’s FollowCam adjusts the screen in real time to keep the speaker in the centre of the shot; so even if they are moving around, you never get distracted from what they are saying. The Eye Contact function uses AI to intelligently adjust to the user’s line of vision.

One of the frustrating things about video calls can be having to tidy a messy room, or being distracted by people moving behind you in a busy café. Virtual background lets you keep your privacy and your concentration, thanks to built-in static and dynamic backgrounds such as offices, coffee shops or outdoor scenery. You can also choose an image to have as your background, or use the AI background blur to distort what is happening behind you. 

The HUAWEI MateBook D 16 features a quad-mic setup that is placed along the edges of the laptop, supporting sound pick-up from sources up to five metres away from the device. The AI noise reduction algorithms can also reduce your background noise on a call; while Personal Voice Enhancement helps you focus on the speaker.

The powerful performance is not only driven by the HUAWEI MateBook D 16’s processing power. This laptop is a networking beast, too, thanks to the innovative HUAWEI Metaline Antenna technology, which allows users to enjoy stable wireless networks. The HUAWEI Metaline Antenna is a brand-new antenna structure that, compared with average antennas, has 56% better signal conversion efficiency.
