In recent years, Huawei has not only focused on smartphones, but also other products. On the one hand, out of necessity, and on the other because the electronics giant is considering an entire ecosystem of its technology products. With Huawei’s first screen line, under the name Huawei MateView, the Chinese company introduces the MateView Display and the MateView GT. The previous monitor is distinguished by its unique design and technical innovations.
First the basics: Huawei Mateview It is a large 28.2 inch 4k + Ultra HD IPS screen. The screen supports 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and 100% of the sRGB color gamut. It has VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification.
With this screen, the brand is clearly targeting the business market of creative users and office workers who choose a large and unique screen. People looking for some relaxation can play a less demanding game on MateView, but FreeSync and low latency are completely absent. It is therefore best for gamers to turn to the MateView GT, a Huawei monitor that is aimed specifically at this branch of the sport.
Unique and elegant design
The market for monitors is very competitive. So as a newcomer, you have to come up with something new for the first proficiency test. Huawei wants to do this on several levels. First of all, there is the design. Friend and Foe Agree: The sleek design offers a luxurious look, thanks in part to the use of aluminum alloy. However, the size that the screen literally differs from the rest is the basic size; The monitor has an aspect ratio of 3:2. This different aspect ratio is mainly developed for graphic designers and office use, where 3:2 is often more user friendly. In addition, MateView is designed in such a way that in principle it can work with all peripheral devices. If you already have a Huawei MateBook laptop, this is a good match, because all of these laptops have a 3:2 screen. The screen has square dimensions, not horizontal, and thanks to this larger aspect ratio, 4K resolution is extraordinary. + It is 3840 x 2560 pixels. This gives a total of 9.8 million pixels, with which the screen can display images in over a billion colors, which is a significant additional number compared to what is possible with 8.3 million pixels on regular 4K screens.
Add to this the slim bezels and a 94% screen-to-body ratio with a magnetic back panel, and it’s clear that the MateView will offer a minimalist and modern look. This approach also translates to screen operation. Huawei MateView presents a smart bar hidden with a convenient touch interface at the bottom of the screen, completely out of sight. It allows users to customize various display settings.
For example, you can swipe left and right on the bar to adjust the speaker volume, while a two-finger swipe moves through the different inputs of the screen. A single click opens the settings menu that you can scroll through. You can confirm with a few clicks and with a double click you are back. For people who want as few buttons as possible on their device, this is a godsend.
Housed in the height-adjustable MateView stand are two front-facing speakers, along with two microphones with noise-cancelling algorithms that pick up sound up to four metres.
Connections: wired and wireless
In terms of connections, there are a lot of options. For example, Huawei has packed the MateView with all the standard ports. Computers can be connected via HMDI, Mini DisplayPort, or USB-C. These connectivity options can be found on the back, except for the USB-C connection. The USB-C port on the back is used only for power, while the USB-C port on the side is used for video connectivity.
There are also two more USB-A ports on the side of the display, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. In addition to monitor connectivity, the USB-C port provides up to 65W of power to connected devices and transfers files between USB ports. Thus, Huawei MateView can also quickly charge a smartphone or laptop while using the screen.
Innovation is the ability to wirelessly connect your smartphone, tablet or laptop to the screen and send the content of your devices to the screen, as it were. For Huawei smartphones, there is an additional option with the OneHop function. The owner just needs to turn on the WiFi connection, Bluetooth and NFC scanner and click the icon on the base of the Huawei MateView. Unfortunately, this function does not yet work with other Android smartphones.
Additionally, users have the option to run Huawei’s EMUI desktop mode wirelessly. This wireless projection is supported by Windows PCs and laptops, as well as a selection of the latest Huawei smartphones. It should be noted that EMUI does not support full screen resolution. Screen is limited to 3240 x 2160 pixels when using the wireless display function of a PC. MateView also supports DLNA transmission for content playback.
Good first step
Huawei MateView has Low Blue Light and Flicker Free certifications from TÜV Rheinland. By doing so, the company affirms its commitment to effectively filtering out harmful light emissions and reducing potential eye strain caused by screen flicker. It fits with the approach of Huawei’s first forays into the monitor market. Therefore, the Huawei MateView seems to be a well-designed screen, both from an aesthetic point of view and in terms of the layout of its various functions.
