HUAWEI recently had their APAC Autumn Launch Event where 3 new products were announced. They are the HUAWEI MateBook 14s, Nova 9 and Watch GT 3 Series Smartwatch!
HUAWEI MateBook 14s
This one is my most anticipated laptop for Q4 2021. It boasts a very competent spec sheet with a very qualified screen for designing and productivity. It features a 2.5K resolution FullView Display with up to 90Hz in refresh rate. It also has a vertically tall 3:2 aspect ratio. It uses the latest Intel 11th Gen Core H-series processors with Iris XE integrated graphics.
It can be made to handle high intensity workloads thanks to Performance Mode, whereby you can boost the CPU TDP to 45W using the Fn+P shortcut. It comes with a 90W fast-charging USB Type-C adapter to feed that 60Whr battery pack.
Available Color’s are Spruce Green and Space Grey.
A notable highlight of the MateBook 14s would be multi-device capabilities, where you can use your smartphone, tablet and monitors (HUAWEI Brand only) to mirror or extend your displays to them wirelessly. You will also be able to drag and drop files to your devices directly too!
HUAWEI nova 9
Succeeding the nova 8, the nova 9 will be the latest in the family for 2021, featuring a 6.57-inch 120Hz OLED display and a 50MP Ultra Vision Camera complete with an RYYB Color filter array and XD Fusion (post-processing for better image quality) .
As always there’ll be SuperCharge on board, and you’ll bet juicing up that 4300mAh battery with a speedy 66W SuperCharge charger.
HUAWEI Watch GT 3 Series
It was easy to love the Watch GT 2 back in the day for featuring style and function. HarmonyOS for watches also touted great battery life on top of a competent set of fitness functions. The OS also supports 3rd party apps, which is a plus in my books.
The Watch GT3 carries over more than 100 workout modes as seen on its predecessor, and adding an AI Running Coach and All-day Blood Oxygen level monitoring into the mix. The GPS has also been upgraded along with dual-band GNSS for more accurate positioning when you’re doing your outdoor runs/workouts.
The Truseen 5.0+ heart rate monitor tracks your SpO2 level constantly and what’s impressive here is the promise of a 2-week battery life with all these features enabled.
Design is very versatile, sporting a stainless steel case with a rotating crown. It will support 3rd party straps as well, making it easier to match outfits for all common occasions.
