Here comes yet another top of the line phone by Chinese manufacturer, Huawei with a couple of new releases. They’ve managed to include another “world’s first” in this latest lineup of devices. We get 3 new devices which are the HUAWEI MateBook 13, HUAWEI Watch GT and the HUAWEI P30.
HUAWEI MateBook 13
Starting of, Huawei gives us a new laptop aimed towards young professional with its sleek ultra portable design with some pretty beefy internals. Running the show is an 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 processor with a NVIDIA® GeForce® MX 150 paired with the 8GB RAM, expect to get some pretty basic gaming support. The MateBook 13 only weighs 1.28kg! (1.3kg for the build with the GPU.) The build quality coupled with the 3:2 aspect ratio display dubbed Huawei FullView gives a premium feel to it all around. The Huawei MateBook 13 is also rated for up to 10 hours of use, perfect for those work weekends at Starbucks;)
You can get the i5 version of the Matebook 13 for RM3999 and the i7 version for RM4399.
HUAWEI Watch GT
Next up, we get the update to Huawei’s watch line up. For the Wear OS fans, no this is not a Wear OS device. But, with a 2 week battery life and a whole slew of fitness features, this is definitely a welcome addition to the wearable market. We get two versions a 46mm edition and a 42mm edition. The only difference between the 2 versions are display sizes. Sporting 2 buttons on the side, the watch pairs over bluetooth to your phone to sync fitness stats. A good thing to note here is that the Huawei Watch GT has a water resistance rating of 5 ATM, which means a swim while wearing the device is totally fine.
The 46mm version of the watch is priced at RM899 while the 42mm version is priced at RM799.
HUAWEI P30 and P30 Pro
Lastly, the device we’ve been waiting for. The P30 pro is the world’s first Leica quad camera device. The P30 Pro and the P30 are both powered by the Kirin 980 octa-core processor with the Mali-G76. Paired with 8GB and either 128GB storage on the P30 and 256GB or 512GB on the P30 Pro, both devices should be able to handle most if not all the tasks you throw at it. Of course the focus of both devices are the camera arrays. The front camera on both devices are 32MP shooters while the back camera on the P30 is a 40MP (Wide Angle Lens, f/1.8), a 16MP (Ultra Wide Angle Lens, f/2.2) and an 8MP (Telephoto, f/2.4, OIS) while the P30 Pro is equipped with a 40MP (Wide Angle Lens, f/1.6, OIS), 20MP (Ultra Wide Angle Lens, f/2.2), 8MP (Telephoto, f/3.4, OIS) and HUAWEI Time-of-Flight (TOF) Camera. On the software end of the camera setup, Huawei gives us enhanced optical and AI image stabilisation technology and with HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor, we’re expecting some top notch photos from this device.
You’d be able to get the Huawei P30 from RM2699 and the Pro version for RM3799 for the 256GB option and RM4399 for the 512GB option.
