In fact, the size of the Huawei MateBook 14 has not been increased so much compared with last year's 13-inch product. Huawei has applied the concept of full screen to the mid-range notebooks to cater to young consumers.  

According to Huawei, the product also uses a 3:2 aspect ratio, which they believe maximizes screen display in Web browsing, photo browsing, video browsing and other scenarios.

In terms of configuration, Huawei MateBook 14 has different hardware combinations. The top-end model is equipped with Intel 8th Generation (Whiskey Lake) Core i7-8565U processor, NVIDIA GeForce MX250 independent graphics card, and Huawei's Shark Fin Fan 2.0 is also put in this notebook, which can achieve a quick heat dissipation for the slim body.  

In terms of battery performance, the Huawei MateBook 14 supports USB-C charging as well as a fast charging technology similar to mobile phones. Officials claim that 15 minutes charging can meet the daily office use needs of 3 hours. Specific battery capacity is not announced, but it says that the notebook supports local 1080P video playback for 15 hours, or normal office work for 14 hours, or web browsing for 10.5 hours.

 Huawei MateBook 14 battery performance ?

When Huawei released MateBook X Pro last year, some media commented that they used the idea of making mobile phones to make notebook products. This year, this idea continues, and they are even further improved. The performance upgrade of Huawei MateBook X Pro is to be expected, while MateBook 14 is unexpected. This mid-range notebook makes a good balance between appearance and performance, and it is also a notebook which has a full screen and support touch control.
