Huawei MateBook D 16 2024
This laptop was announced last month in China and brings us an IPS LCD screen with a diagonal length of 16 16 inches, with a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels, with an aspect ratio of 16:10, and a maximum brightness of up to 300 nits. In the Huawei MateBook D 16 laptop, the company installed a normal-sized keyboard with a special numerical part, a touchpad with five touch points, two speakers and two microphones.
The basic model of this laptop computer offers a 13th generation Intel Core i5 processor, as well as an Intel UHD graphics card, while higher-end models get i7 and i9 processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics. All models provide 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and one terabyte of M.2 SSD type 2280.
In Europe, the Huawei MateBook D 16 will be available in options with several configuration variants and with prices starting at 999 euros for the version with: Intel Core i5 processor of the 13th generation, 16 GB of RAM and 521 GB of storage space, while 1399 a version with a more advanced Intel Core i9 processor with also 16 GB of RAM and one terabyte of storage space will cost EUR. Pre-orders start on January 8th, and official sales start on January 22nd.
FreeClip wireless headphones are also coming to Europe
During the presentation of the device, Huawei also revealed the FreeClip wireless headphones with a unique “open ear” design for comfortable all-day wear. They are part of Huawei’s Fashion Forward proposition and are a response to what the company claims a growing demographic of listeners want – wireless in-ear headphones that allow them to stay in tune with their surroundings.
The piston design consists of three parts: Comfort Bean, Acoustic Ball and C-bridge Design. The first uses an ergonomic bead shape that is molded along the curvature of the human ear. The following, literally translated, “acoustic ball” design is based on the shapes of real models of the funnel-shaped ear cavity, also known as shell cavity
This should achieve the optimal size of the headphones so that they do not cause discomfort during prolonged wear.
Finally, the C-bridge design features an adaptive sensor that adjusts the clamping force of the buckle mechanism—it’s engineered to add nine core wires to its thin cantilever arm.
In addition, Huawei claims that FreeClip headphones are the first in the industry to not distinguish between left and right ears. In terms of specs, the headphones can reportedly last up to 32 hours and fully charge in 40 minutes. Ten minutes of charging also provides up to three hours of listening. They will arrive in Europe by the end of the year at a price of 200 euros.
