As work from home becomes the norm for many and schools turn to distance learning and video conferencing amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become clear that mobile devices and laptops will continue playing an important role in the new normal.

(Update, July 31: D 14 feature up! Read Why the Huawei MateBook D 14 is the perfect mate for the new normal.)

So it isn’t a surprise that were seeing a bunch of new notebooks lately, for different budgets and different needs. Now, it’s Huawei Philippines‘ turn to refresh its notebook line, with the launch of new MateBook D 14 and MateBook 13 models.

The latter is more upscale and luxury-focused. They also use Intel’s latest 10th-gen processors.

The Huawei MateBook D 14 has two configurations — one with an AMD Ryzen 5 3500U processor, like the MateBook D 15 that launched here, and another powered by a faster Ryzen 7 3700U chip with Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics.

Both the MateBook D 14 and 2020 MateBook 13 support Huawei Share and Multi-Screen Collaboration, which allow users to conveniently transfer big files between compatible devices and control apps on a phone or tablet using the MateBook’s screen.

As expected, the Ryzen 7 variant is more expensive than the Ryzen 5-based MateBook D 14 — but only slightly. In the Philippines, the Huawei MateBook D 14 starts at P39,990 (roughly $799 converted) for the AMD R5 configuration, whereas the more powerful AMD R7 model is priced at P42,990 ($859). The latest MateBook is available in Huawei’s familiar Space Grey finish.

Curiously, the MateBook D 15 costs less than both laptops despite sporting a larger screen, and it’s even more affordable now, thanks to a recent price cut that brings the SRP down to P35,990 ($719) from P37,990 ($759) at launch.

Those who buy the laptop from June 29 until July 3 will be entitled to a freebie bundle worth P6,270 ($125), which includes the following:

  • Huawei backpack
  • Huawei Bluetooth mouse
  • Huawei Freelace wireless earphones

As for the specs, the new Huawei MateBook D 14 features a 14-inch non-touch display with 1,920 x 1,080 resolution; 8GB DDR4 RAM; 512GB of PCIe SSD storage; a discrete webcam hidden in the function row; and a power button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor with Windows Hello integration. Available ports include a USB-C port, two USB-A ports, a 3.5mm combo jack, and an HDMI connection. Unfortunately, there’s no card reader in the MateBook D 14.

Also inside the MateBook D 14 is a 56Wh battery, while a 65-watt brick supplies the notebook with power. As expected, it runs Windows 10 Home out of the box.
