Huawei today officially launched the MateBook 16s laptop in China. The novelty is presented as the world’s first model based on the Intel Evo platform, which uses the top 14-core Core i9-12900H processor, reaching a frequency of 5.0 GHz. True, it is included only in the most expensive modification, and the simpler versions are equipped with Core i5 and Core i7 processors.

The device configuration also includes a webcam that allows you to record Full HD video, a USB-C port with a Thunderbolt 4 interface (so you can still connect a 3D card), another USB-C, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 and an HDMI video output.
Housing Huawei MateBook 16s – all-metal. The battery capacity was 84 Wh, fast charging technology is supported: 50% in 30 minutes. The laptop is 17.8 mm thick and weighs 1.99 kg.
