The main feature of the Huawei Matebook 16 is a 16-inch IPS LCD touchscreen with 2520x1680 resolution, a 1,500:1 contrast ratio, and 300 nits of brightness. It supports HDR and covers 100 percent of the sRGB color gamut.
Design-wise, the Matebook 16 is a looker, with Space Grey smooth soft-touch finish, slim bezels, a large keyboard, and a glass-protected large touchpad. The Matebook 16 is 17.8mm thick and weighs just under 2kg.
The Matebook 16 comes in two versions, powered by either the Ryzen 5 5600H or the Ryzen 7 5800H. Both versions come with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of NVMe SSD storage. It also features WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity and has a fingerprint sensor integrated with the Power button.
The Matebook 16 has an 84Whr battery that should be enough for 12.5 hours of video playback, at least if you ask Huawei. It also features a fast 135W charger that should charge it pretty fast.
The rest of the connectivity options include HDMI, two USB-C and two USB 3.2 Gen1 x2 standard ports, and a headphone/mic jack in case you don't want to use the two 2W speakers and built-in microphones with AI noise cancellation.
The European price is set at €1,100 for the Ryzen 5 5600H version and €1,200 for the Ryzen 7 5800H one, so hopefully, we will see it on retail/e-tail shelves soon.
