Huawei is upgrading its Matebook D series laptops which includes MateBook D 14 and MateBook D 15 laptops.
Huawei aimed at young consumers and offer “powerful performance, robust build quality and chic design,
Both laptops feature a slim, lightweight design. The MateBook D 14 has a 14-inch display, while the MateBook D 15 has a 15.6-inch display.
Huawei official said that the laptops have “ultra-slim bezels,” measuring at 4.8mm for the D 14 and 5.3mm for the D 15.
Both laptops come with an AMD Ryzen 5 mobile processor, an AMD Radeon Vega 8 for graphics and 8GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory. The MateBook D 14 comes with a 512GB solid-state drive, while the MateBook D 15 comes with a 256GB SSD.
The company also touts the laptops collaboration features, which let a MateBook and a Huawei phone “share a single display, in which users can drag files from one user interface to the other to transfer files, and view the contents saved in the smartphone directly on the laptop,” according to the release.
The laptops will be available from select retailers in the UK on Feb. 21 and preorders start Feb. 13. The MateBook D 14 costs £649.99 (about $845) and the MateBook D 15 costs £599.99 (about $780).
Huawei didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on availability of MateBook D in other markets.
Huawei is one of the world’s largest devices makers, but the Chinese company is virtually invisible in the US. Last year, the US blacklisted Huawei following an executive order from President Donald Trump that effectively banned the company from US communications networks.
National security officials fear that equipment and devices from Huawei could be used to spy on other countries and companies. Huawei has repeatedly denied that charge.
