Huawei has just launched two new monitors under the MateView lineup. It’s the first time the Chinese giant have released flagship-level standalone monitors, and features the namesake MateView 4K+ monitor along with the MateView GT, a 1440p ultrawide gaming monitor.
For their first flagship monitor, the MateView boasts some impressive specs, coming with a 28.2-inch 3:2 panel with a native resolution of 3840×2560. The MateView is also HDR400 certified, and has a Delta E colour accuracy below 1 in sRGB mode as well as a Delta E below 2 colour accuracy in DCI-P3 mode. Speaking of colours, it also supports the full sRGB range of colours and 98% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut.
Taking a note from their MateBook lineup, the Huawei MateView also has TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light and Flicker Free certifications, helping prevent the user from eye fatigue due to screen flickers.
In terms of connectivity, the MateView comes with 2x USB-C ports, 2x USB-A ports, 1x HDMI port, 1x Mini DisplayPort and 1x 3.5mm audio jack. You can also hook up your tablets, laptops and smartphones to the monitor wirelessly, with smartphone users specifically able to use OneHop Projection and use Desktop Mode for greater productivity. If you were to do so, you can also connect your keyboard and mouse directly through USB-C to the MateView too, allowing you to switch between the multiple connected devices without having to reconnect your peripherals.
On the outside the MateView has a geometric design, with a magnetic back panel for a more minimalistic look. It also has a slim bezel design, with a 94% screen-to-body ratio. The MateView also has an integrated height-adjustable mount, letting users adjust the height and tilt of their screen easily. You can also go through the monitor’s settings easily with a new touch interface tucked away that Huawei called the Huawei Smart Bar.
There are two front-firing speakers embedded into the stand of the monitor. Also embedded into the stand are two microphones with built-in noise reduction that are able to pick up audio from up to four metres away.
As for pricing and availability, Huawei have yet to announce a price for the MateView, nor have they said when it would be available for purchase. You can however check out its product page here.
Huawei MateView GT
While Huawei’s prosumer grade monitor may be a little taller than usual, the other entry into the MateView lineup is certainly a little wider than most.
The MateView GT is Huawei’s first gaming desktop monitor, and is a curved ultrawide display, coming with a 34-inch 21:9 display with a native resolution of 3440×1440. It features a refresh rate of 165Hz, a peak brightness of 350 nits, a 4000:1 contrast ratio and is HDR10 certified too. While it’s billed as a gaming monitor, it also has decent colour accuracy, with a Delta E of below 2 in the DCI-P3 colour gamut.
Being a gaming monitor, Huawei have packed a few gaming-oriented features into the MateView GT. One of them is the Dark Field Control feature, which adjusts brightness during low-light and overexposed scenes for users to spot others easily. There’s also a Crosshairs feature, providing a reticle for FPS gamers to use when aiming and shooting.
Other features of note include TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification and support for DC dimming for blue light reduction. There’s also a integrated soundbar in the MateView GT, with 2.0 surround sound as well as an RGB touch panel. In terms of connectivity, it comes with 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, 1x DisplayPort, 1x full USB Type-C, 1x USB Type-C for charging and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Unfortunately, just like the Huawei MateView the MateView GT doesn’t have a price yet, nor have Huawei announced when customers can purchase one. In the meantime, you can check its product page here.
