Huawei has officially entered South Africa’s PC market with the introduction of the Huawei D Series laptops. With impressive specs and competitive price points, the new Huawei MateBook D14 and D15 laptops promise to bring an exciting laptop option to South African consumers. Both priced at under R13,500, Huawei’s D Series laptops are ideal for anyone already a part of the Huawei ecosystem, as well as new users looking for affordable alternatives to current high-spec laptops on the market.
More screen for your buck
Ideal for personal and work use, the MateBook D14 and D15 laptops offer a wide range of features that are sure to win over South African consumers. Equipped with the Huawei FullView Display, the Huawei MateBook D 15 laptop promises to deliver a fully immersive experience. A recessed camera and ultra-thin top and side bezels, measuring only 5.3mm thick, help to improve the portability of the machine while offering an impressive screen-to-body ratio. The D15 boasts a 15.6-inch, 1080p FHD IPS screen with anti-glare protection and an overall 87% screen-to-body ratio.
The MateBook D 14 laptop, on the other hand, has a 14-inch screen and boats an 84% screen-to-body ratio. The 5.3mm-thin bezels at the top and on the sides as well as the anti-glare matte screen make it ideal for watching cinematic content or working on that all-important proposal.
Under the hood
The HUAWEI MateBook D 15 and D14 AMD edition laptops feature an AMD Ryzen 5 3500U processor and Radeon Vega 8 Graphics to ensure the PC easily delivers top performance across various user activities at work and in play. Equipped with 8GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory, the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 and D 14 laptops have enough memory to handle most high load apps on the market. Compared to single-channel memory, dual-channel memory supports up to 50% higher data transfer speeds.
Every HUAWEI MateBook D series laptop is equipped with two storage devices – one solid-state drive and one hard drive. They also support G-sensor, a hard disk drop protection technology that is usually reserved for commercial laptops. This acts like an airbag, protecting the hard disk in the event of a drop to prevent users from losing precious data.
Small changes, make a big difference
To further improve the user experience, Huawei’s MateBook D series laptops replace the traditional bulky power brick with a 65W USB-C charger with detachable cables. This makes the charger much more portable, which is ideal for work on the go. It can also be used to charge other Huawei smartphones and tablets that are equipped with a USB-C port. The HUAWEI MateBook D 14 supports 9.5 hours of battery power in video playing mode, while the D 15 supports 6.3 hours.
For existing Huawei users, the new D Series laptops make it easier than ever before to marry multiple Huawei devices. The Huawei Share feature allows MateBook laptops and Huawei smartphones to establish a connection with just a tap. Users can take advantage of this intelligent connection feature to initiate high-speed file transfers, file sharing across devices, drag-and-drop editing, as hardware collaboration.
