Is Huawei positioning itself as a strong contender in the PC market? That might just be the case. Just recently, the technology giant launched the Huawei Display alongside the AMD-based Huawei MateStation S desktop in the Philippines. The Mate Display is the company’s first commercial monitor on the local market, but it probably won’t be the last for 2021.
(Update, June 4: Two Huawei monitors launched globally — one leaning towards color accuracy, and the other, towards gaming performance. Look!)
According to a Weibo tipster who goes by the handle @看山的叔叔 on the Chinese microblogging platform, Huawei will release two never-before-seen monitors under the MateView line. Another leaker suggested that the new products are slated to debut next to the Huawei MateBook 16 sometime in May.
One monitor sports a 32-inch panel and will be aimed squarely at creative professionals who need true-to-life colors and additional connectivity features for work and multimedia use.
The 32-inch MateView monitor will have impressively slim bezels all around; a super-sharp resolution of 4,500 x 3,000 pixels; a 3:2 aspect ratio for better vertical viewing and productivity; HDR400 certification; and 10-bit color. Think Apple’s Pro Display XDR, but with less impressive specs across the board — and, most likely, a lower price tag as a result.
The other MateView monitor is clearly built for gaming, sporting a 42-inch curved panel with a 3K+ resolution, a 21:9 aspect ratio, and a super-fast refresh rate of 165Hz. It could launch with a pair of quality built-in speakers as well for stereo output.
The Huawei Display offers excellent value for the price, so we’re optimistic these alleged Huawei products won’t disappoint — assuming they’re real, of course.
