Huawei recently held its Innovative Product Launch event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where the technology giant showed off a bunch of new products that will be launched in the Asia-Pacific region, if they haven’t already.

A highlight of the event was the local announcement of the Huawei Watch Fit 3, an Apple Watch lookalike with a large OLED square screen, an ultra-thin body, and a 10-day battery life. We already posted our review of the Watch Fit 3, which costs P6,499 (roughly $113) in the Philippines, so feel free to read it if you want a deeper look into the smartwatch’s hardware and software features.

For now, let’s move the spotlight to the other Huawei products that made their regional debut, starting with the company’s most ambitious personal computer yet.

The event in a capsule

Huawei MateBook X Pro 2024

Huawei is making a bold statement with the MateBook X Pro Core Ultra Premium Edition, which we’ll call the MateBook X Pro 2024 for brevity’s sake. This latest iteration isn’t just an incremental upgrade; it’s a full-on performance leap wrapped in the brand’s signature sleek metal design.

The star of the show is undoubtedly the Intel Core Ultra 9 processor with an H suffix — a rarity in the thin-and-light space. The H denotes a higher TDP [Thermal Design Power] of up to 45 watts, compared to the usual 28 watts for other chips. In layman’s terms, it means you’re getting serious desktop-grade processing power in an ultraportable form factor. This is further bolstered by up to 32GB of RAM and a whopping 2TB of storage in the maxed-out configuration. The base model offers a still-impressive 16GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD.

It’s literally a super computer built around Intel’s Core Ultra 9 (185H) or Core Ultra 7 (155H) processor. And take note, Huawei is using Core Ultra chips with an H suffix, indicating higher performance with a TDP of up to 45 watts, compared to 28 watts for the P and U lineups. The chip can be kitted with up to 32GB RAM and 2TB of internal storage if you opt for the top-of-the-line variant, while the base version comes with 16GB RAM and 1TB storage.

But the Huawei MateBook X Pro 2024 isn’t just about raw power. The company has kept the design delightfully thin and light. At a mere 13.5mm (without the rubber feet) and a featherweight 980 grams, it’s one of the most portable 14-inch laptops you’ll find packing an Intel Core Ultra CPU. The display lives up to the premium billing too, boasting a gorgeous 3.2K OLED panel with a 93% screen-to-body ratio, a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, and a peak brightness of 1,000 nits for better outdoor visibility.

Availability will depend on your region, but expect to shell out a premium for this premium machine. Prices in Malaysia start at RM8,999 (P109,979 or $1,926) for the Core Ultra 7 variant, climbing to RM10,999 (P134,421 or $2,354) for the top-tier Core Ultra 9 configuration. The Philippines can expect a similar launch soon.

Huawei MatePad 11.5″ S PaperMatte Edition

The MatePad 11.5″ S PaperMatte Edition ditches the usual glossy tablet screen for a unique textured display that Huawei calls PaperMatte, hence the product name. This etched surface is a dual win. It significantly reduces glare and reflections, making it easier on your eyes whether you’re binging on Netflix or knee-deep in emails. Combined with the third-gen M-Pencil stylus, the display offers a subtle friction that mimics the feel of pen on paper, a welcome departure from the slippery glass found on most tablets.

Notably, the MatePad 11.5″ S PaperMatte Edition also comes preloaded with the GoPaint app, a new Huawei-developed drawing app that seems to be a direct competitor to Apple’s popular Procreate.

Pricing is still under wraps, but we do know that the MatePad 11.5″ S PaperMatte Edition, much like the recently announced MateBook X Pro 2024, is setting its sights on the Philippine market soon. Stay tuned for more details as we inch closer to local launch.

Other announcements

Beyond these headliners, a new beige color option for the FreeClip and a refreshing Vert Green colorway for the Watch GT 4 smartwatch were also unveiled. The company also took the wraps off the FreeBuds 6i, Huawei’s latest budget-friendly true wireless earphones. They share a similar design to their predecessors, but promise improved battery life and noise cancellation.
