Be the first to have the Huawei MateBook D in your hands in South Africa


Huawei has officially launched its Huawei MateBook D 14 (2020) and MateBook D 15 (2020) laptops in South Africa. The latest 14in and 15.6in Huawei notebooks both bring a revolutionary cross-platform experience to users, specifically when it comes to working across multiple devices. 

The new Huawei MateBook D Series inherits the DNA of Huawei’s established PC range, which is expressed in its aesthetic design, innovative technology and the smart experience it delivers. On top of its lightweight chassis, FullView display, powerful performance, robust build quality and chic design, the latest Huawei MateBook D Series comes with a range of new features including support for multi-screen collaboration. 

Whether you’re looking for a PC, looking for a new notebook or just weighing your laptop options, the new MateBook D Series forms part of Huawei’s 2020 vision to bring seamless collaboration to every person, home and organisation for a fully connected ecosystem of Huawei devices. This ecosystem is at the core of Huawei’s strategy, set to transform the way we use and interact with technology in South Africa and beyond. 

Authentic FullView Display

The mission to find an ultra-slim laptop for work, school or for gaming is made easier with the new MateBook D range of laptops. Thanks to its design-forward thinking, Huawei has managed to create something truly beautiful and powerful with the ultra-slim bezel design on its FullView displays. If you’re looking for a large display in a portable chassis, the Huawei MateBook D has it. 

In line with the rest of the MateBook family, the Huawei MateBook D (2020) Series comes with a FullView display. Measuring at just 4.8mm for the 14in and 5.3mm for the 15.6in model, ultra-thin bezels frame the displays, resulting in outstanding 84% and 87% screen-to-body ratios respectively. The lightweight chassis is accentuated by a streamlined design with curved edges to produce a sleeker look. 

The new Huawei MateBook D Series features some of the smallest and lightest laptops for their screen size in the same price band to date, offering a wide viewing experience in a portable package. 

Desktop PC capabilities on a laptop

Young laptop users and buyers look for more in a PC or laptop offering than just a beautiful screen and lightweight size. It has to be gaming-capable and powerful enough to run games. The Huawei MateBook D Series AMD Edition is powered by a 12nm AMD Ryzen 5 3500U laptop processor to deliver a powerful performance while retaining a high level of stability and reliability. For the laptop GPU, the AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics fitted in the laptop provides outstanding graphics and processing support. 

Don’t be afraid of the Huawei MateBook Series D overheating either. The Series also includes a new version of the Huawei Shark Fin Fan. With the new s-shaped fan blades, Huawei’s Shark Fin Fan 2.0 optimises the laptop airflow dynamically to improve cooling and laptop performance. This will ensure desktop PC capabilities on your laptop. 

In terms of laptop RAM, the Huawei MateBook D range is fitted with 8GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory. That’s enough memory to handle most high load apps and games you can throw at it. The solid-state drive (SSD) in the new laptops are connected to the mainboard via the high-speed PCIe interface. The MateBook D 14 (2020) comes with 512GB of storage, whilst the MateBook D 15 (2020) comes with 256GB of storage.
