Huawei Brings MateBook D15 Laptop to SA


Shopping for the best prices on laptops can be a chore, so it’s important to keep up with the news on new releases so that when the time comes to shop for the best laptop for your needs, you’re clued up and ready to make an informed decision. Hot on the heels of Huawei’s MateBook D14 laptop, comes the MateBook D15. Designed to give users a smart office experience, the Huawei MateBook D15 embraces the idea of a seamless ‘Super Device’ that helps users get the most out of their devices.

The 15.6-inch FullView sleek laptop features a display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and IPS anti-glare. Boasting a screen-to-body ratio of 87%, this laptop is all about maximising screen real estate. It comes equipped with the 11th Gen Intel CoreTM processor, 720P HD recessed camera, and 8GB RAM + 256 GB memory with dual-channel architecture.

Power in lightness

Utilising design elements from the MateBook D Series, the MateBook D15 offers a minimalistic design with a thin and light metal body. Just 16.9 mm thick and weighing 1.56kg, the premium lightweight personal laptop has a metallic finish and is designed to go anywhere and everywhere with you.

Bringing the best ‘super device’ experience

With its new Smart Office experience, Huawei promises to bring users a new form of interconnectivity using its Huawei Share technology and integrated ecosystem. The idea is to bring a unified experience across the user’s Huawei devices to form one virtual ‘Super Device’ that can essentially work as ‘one’. Huawei says that through this intuitive integration with hardware and software, each Huawei product can be maximised to its true potential and change the way Huawei users use their devices.

With the Smart Office setup, Huawei allows several devices to be connected with a wired and wireless connection, allowing users to easily switch between personal and work mode. As an example of this integrated ecosystem, three devices that includes the Huawei MateBook D15, Huawei MateView and the Huawei MatePad 10.4 can all function together as one Super Device. The tablet can connect to the monitor using wireless projection, while the laptop can connect to the monitor using a USB-C cable. Users can then navigate both the tablet and laptop using a keyboard and mouse connected to the desktop monitor.

Given that the MateBook D15 supports Office tasks, HD videos and Performance Mode, it is undoubtedly the ideal work laptop and entertainment device.

Solid performance

To many of us, a laptop is not only a tool to get work done, but also an entertainment platform. A new 11th Gen Intel Core Processor built on the 10nm SuperFin technology powers the MateBook D15. The quad-core, eight-thread processor offers fast performance to effortlessly handle everyday usage while integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics provides impressive graphics performance.

Packing up to 8GB + 256 GB memory in dual-channel architecture, the laptop offers users more possibilities. The device can be configured with up to 16GB dual-channel RAM for faster and smoother multitasking and features a high-speed SSD (Solid State Drive) to further improve the overall system performance. Also, an advanced cooling system featuring a high-density Huawei Shark fin fan and two heat pipes, leverages the bionic design to ensure the laptop performs stably under load.

Swift charging

One of the common drawbacks of laptops is the battery life and charging speed. Huawei aims to tackle this sore point with the MateBook D15. The AC adapter supports Huawei SuperCharge for quick charging with compatible Huawei smartphones and laptops. A 15-minute charging session provides enough charge for the MateBook D15 to run for up to two hours, making it a great choice for South Africans concerned about load-shedding. If you want a laptop battery that will last, then this device may be just what you’re after.

Login securely with fingerprint power button

One feature you will love on the MateBook D15 laptop is the fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button. This is a nice touch and makes biometric unlocks a breeze and most of all, you do not have to sign in with passwords or scan your fingerprint separately to log in.

The new 12.6-inch Huawei MateBook D15 is available in either classic Space Grey or an elegant Mystic Silver colourway at a recommended price of R11,999.
