Huawei has unveiled six new gadgets at its global launch event, these include the FreeBuds Pro, the FreeLace Pro, the WATCH GT 2 Pro, the WATCH FIT, the MateBook X and the MateBook 14.
These products are expected to bring a more ‘cohesive connected experience’ to consumers in their everyday lives. Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer BG, says that “great user experiences are always founded on innovation, but our journey of innovation always begins and ends with consumers.”
Here’s a closer look at Huawei’s new gadgets:
Huawei FreeBuds Pro
These are the world’s first true wireless stereo (TWS) earphones to support intelligent dynamic noise cancellation. Featuring both a hardware and software integrated solution, the new TWS earphones intelligently identify the type of ambient noise based on the user’s immediate surroundings and switch between three profiles – General, Cosy and Ultimate – to offer the optimal noise-cancelling performance.
On top of this, the FreeBuds Pro delivers the best noise cancelling performance yet on a Huawei audio product with an industry-leading noise cancellation rating of 40dB. Dual Connection with Android, iOS and Windows smart systems means users can seamlessly switch between devices without being tied to one brand, and the new gesture control enables users to easily take control of the earphones by performing a swipe or a pinch on the cubic earphone stem.
Huawei FreeLace Pro
The Huawei FreeLace Pro neckband earphones take advantage of algorithms to provide stable noise cancelling performance in any situation.
Pairing and charging are as seamless as ever with Huawei HiPair, a Huawei-developed solution that lets users easily do both at the same time by plugging the earphones to a smartphone with a USB-C port. A five-minute charge gives enough battery to sustain five hours of music playback, and a full charge offers a full day’s use.
Huawei WATCH GT 2 Pro
The new Huawei WATCH GT 2 Pro offers up to two weeks of battery life, more than 100 workout modes, plus pro-grade fitness data tracking features. This flagship smartwatch launches with a rugged design featuring premium materials, including a sapphire watch crystal, titanium case and skin-friendly ceramic case back that combines with another sapphire glass black to enhance monitoring accuracy and wearing comfort.
Additionally, WATCH GT 2 Pro supports apps to provide a convenient means for users to get even more features. Huawei also plans to further augment the smart experience on offer in the future.
Huawei WATCH FIT
Launched alongside the WATCH GT 2 Pro, the WATCH FIT is the first Huawei sports smartwatch to feature a rounded rectangular watch face design. The smartwatch combines a dazzling 1.64-inch AMOLED display, which lends itself to displaying more content and a better interaction experience.
At 34g, the WATCH FIT feels as light as a sports wristband. The watch features newly upgraded TruSeen 4.0 heart rate technology, which leverages Huawei’s own multi-sensor AI neural network algorithm and advanced PPG components to provide more accurate, 24-hour heart monitoring to track changes in blood oxygen, sleep and stress conditions.
All the data is also analysed to generate fitness advice that helps users lead better, healthier lives.
While compact, the smartphone supports up to a 10-day battery and supports Huawei’s fast charging technology.
Huawei MateBook X
The latest entry to Huawei’s flagship PC product line, the Huawei MateBook X combines the flagship series’ iconic design and innovative technology with improved lightweight design and smart features.
Weighing just 1kg, the lightweight notebook measures just 13.6mm at its thickest part and is smaller than a piece of A4 paper, so users can easily slide it into a backpack and carry it with them wherever they go.
The new MateBook X is the first notebook to feature the 3K Infinite FullView Display, realised with a borderless design that offers an immersive viewing experience and stunning image quality. The display is also multitouch-enabled with gesture support such as Fingers Gesture Screenshot, which lets users quickly take a screenshot by swiping downwards on the screen with three fingers, as easy as it is on a smartphone.
Powered by a 10th Generation Intel Core processor, the new flagship notebook delivers the performances needed for daily tasks. The touchpad is 26 percent larger compared to the previous generation for better ease-of-use, and now features Free Touch to offer full haptic feedback.
The Huawei MateBook X is also the first Huawei notebook to support Wi-Fi 6, which features three times the data transfer speed of Wi-Fi 5 for faster connectivity and better productivity.
Huawei MateBook 14
During the virtual launch, Huawei also unveiled the MateBook 14 featuring a highly portable design and powerful performance. The device integrates the AMD Ryzen 4000 H Series processor with Huawei Shark Fin Fans delivering superior thermal performance even under intense workloads.
Besides performance, it has a 2K FullView Display and supports smart features including Multi-screen Collaboration to help consumers stay productive on the road.
