Huawei has unveiled its new laptop, the MateBook D16. As you can imagine, it is a continuation of the D series, which was in the previous form of D14 and D15 but with increased screen size and RAM, a new processor and stereo speakers.
With a slim and wide screen, a full-size keyboard, a high amount of memory (both RAM and storage), a high-quality and practical metal case, it also seems to stand out for its daily use and work.
Huawei MateBook D 16 specifications
Like other models, the MateBook D16 has a metal body and weighs 1.7 kilograms. The device will only be available in space grey color. The model features a 16.1-inch Full HD IPS display and comes with a non-reflective display with a refresh rate of 60 Hz.
The computer, which has a generally calm appearance, comes with 8 GB and 16 GB of DDR4 3200 MHz RAM. It’s nice to have 16 GB of RAM to work freely in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, and other “heavy” applications.
On the storage side is the 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSD. As with the other MateBook D series, this hardware is expected to be from Samsung-made SSDs.
On the processor side, which is one of the most important features of the computer, it is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H processor, which consists of 6 cores and 12 monitors. The transition from the “U” series processor found in previous series to the performance class “H” series processor will please most users.
The device, which is used as a membrane type keyboard, has backlighting. This chip is located under the large touchpad, providing fast connectivity via Huawei Share with Huawei smartphones running an EMUI interface.
The MateBook D16, which seems to please us as in its previous models in sound quality, welcomes us this time with small speaker blocks on the right and left of the keyboard.
The performance test results of the new MateBook model are described as follows:
Geekbench 5: Single core – 1080 points / Multi-core – 6000 points
Cinebench R20: CPU – 3000 points / Single core mode – 450 points
PCMark: 4800 points
3DMark: Night Raid – 12,000 points / Sky Diver – 10,000 points
The connection features of the device also seem up-to-date. Wi-Fi 6 (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax) and Bluetooth 5.1 meet current technology requirements. As a port, the device has 2 USB-A 3.1 Gen 2, 1 HDMI, 2 USB-C and 1 3.5 mm headphone jack.
There are also some nice little changes in the software: with the new D16, you can use an EMUI 11-based smartphone in Huawei Share as three windows, not two virtual desktops.
