Huawei added a new member to its Huawei MateView monitors during its new product launch conference on May 19. Huawei Mate monitors comprise two monitors including the Huawei MateView and the Huawei’s MateView GT.
Huawei MateView comes with a wireless primary color display for professionals, while the MateView GT features a curved screen display that focuses on avid gamers and immersive audio-visual entertainment lovers.
Huawei Mate series includes mobile phones, tablets, notebooks, and displays. The Huawei MateView display is a professional display device, and it retains the company’s full-scene interconnection gene with a minimalistic design, a 4K + super large screen with high-color quasi-primary color display, Smart Bar touch interaction, intelligent wireless connection, and more.
Huawei is a new player in the field of the display industry. Aside from giving the consumer market more choices, the Huawei MateView promotes the acceleration of the display industry to a new level.
Unlike traditional display products, the Huawei MateView adopts a design similar to an all-in-one machine. The machine uses a minimalist to thin design concept and the degree of integration is very high.
The 3:2 ratio 4K + resolution large screen of Huawei MateView is simply eyecatching from the front. The screen size is 28.2 inches with 3840×2560 pixels resolution and a very delicate feel.
Due to the 3:2 ratio, the height is higher than the traditional 4K display, which is 3840×2160 pixels. The display area is larger as well.
The screen-to-body ratio of Huawei MateView reaches 94 percent. The top left and right sides are only 6mm and the bottom frame is slightly wider, but only 9.3mm.
The display is wrapped in a circle of an aluminum alloy frame. The surface of the frame has been polished to give the overall fine sand feel.
Unlike the traditional snap-on design, Huawei MateView magnetic rear case (cover on the back of the display), the magnetic suction type occupies less space and has a simpler structure.
Huawei has also removed the display chip from the display, making the back of the screen of Huawei MateView flat. The screen’s thinnest part is 9.3mm, and the thickest part is less than 13mm.
The exposed screws have a high degree of integration. This design is more like a massive flat plate placed on a bracket.
Huawei used a solution called separate lifting cable management structure for the connection between the display and the bracket. The rotation axis, which serves as the connecting part is fixed by a device similar to a universal ball. This ingenious design requires only one finger for the tilt operation of the display.
Moreover, the Huawei MateView has a built-in sliding rail above the bracket, which enables lifting operations. Since the display chip and motherboard of Huawei MateView are all located inside the bracket, the design difficulty is very high.
The base houses a Huawei sharing sensing area, which supports the one-touch screen projection operation of Huawei mobile phones.
The display sound hole is located in the lower part of the bracket and it is composed of 5920 circular holes in an array. It also works like an air inlet, which minimizes body temperature.
Inside the soundhole, there is two high-power (rated power 5W, maximum power up to 8W), full-range speakers, with a 28cc independent large sound cavity. According to the official data, the weighted loudness of these two speakers reaches 75dB and the actual loudness 78dB.
Huawei MateView’s speaker effect is outstanding. It delivers a superior hearing experience that is very transparent, high-pitched, strong bass, and the sound field is very large. The sound seems to be coming from all directions.
Huawei MateView has built-in dual microphones through the sound optimization algorithm. The pickup distance can reach 4 meters.
In terms of interfaces, Huawei MateView provides 1 full-function USB-C, 2 USB-A, 1 HDMI (HDMI2.0), 1 MiniDP (DP1.2), and a 3.5mm headphone and microphone combo interface. Each headphone jack supports Chinese standards (OMTP) and international standards (CTIA), so you do not need to worry about headphone adaptation.
These interfaces are located on the side and rear of the body bracket, rather than the bottom of the monitor. There is no need to lift the monitor when plugging in.
The USB-C also supports 65W reverse charging for notebooks. when you use Huawei MateView as an extension screen of your notebook (via USB-C), your notebook does not need to be connected, and it can be charged and screen expanded at the same time by plugging in the power supply through a USB-C cable.
When you are connecting a notebook with Type-C, the display can be used as an extended Doc at this time. USB interface on the display can be directly used on the notebook, which is like adding more interfaces to the notebook. This helps you avoid spending money for an extended Doc.
As Huawei’s first high-end display product, MateView features a 28.2 inches display with a high resolution of 3840×2560 4K+ level. With a 3:2 display ratio, Huawei MateView has 1.5 million more pixels than traditional 4K resolution displays.
Unlike most 16:9 and 16:10 monitors, the 3:2 ratio monitors have an edge in terms of productivity. The 3:2 screen can display more in common office software such as MS Office.
In terms of photography, the ratio of photos taken by SLR cameras is usually 3:2, and the 3:2 screen displays pictures without black borders.
In the above comparison chart, it is seen that at the time of displaying the same webpage, the 3:2 screen needs to display more content information.
Aside from Huawei, other manufacturers have used the 3:2 screen, but only Huawei has carried forward the 3:2 screen. A few years ago, the low-end products featured low-color gamut, low-resolution, 16:9 screens, but Huawei released the MateBook digital series of notebook products, which relied on the rare high scores and high colors of the same level.
The domain 3:2 productivity screen triggered an upgraded battle in the notebook market, with Huawei leading the revolutionary upgrade of the entire notebook market.
There are currently only a few monitors with a 3:2 ratio, making it hard for consumers or professional office workers to choose a product that meets their expectations. The release of Huawei MateView brings more choices to the market.
The Huawei’s MateView screen has a 98 percent DCI-P3 color gamut and supports sRGB, DCI-P3, and original mode three types of color modes. The brightness reaches 500 nits, and the screen uses a 10bit color depth with 1.07 billion colors, which is the 1 billion color screen that garnered massive popularity in the mobile phone segment this year.
The screen field-color depth has a piece of important parameter information. Color depth refers to the number of bits used to store the color of 1 pixel. It is usually referred to as “bit/pixel.” Each pixel is made up of three colors of red, green, and blue.
The more data bits of the pixel, the more numbers can be used to distinguish colors. For a 10-bit screen, each color point can display 2 to the 10th power color depth, which is 1.07 billion colors, which is 64 times that of an 8-bit screen.
The 1 billion-color screen ensures a natural transition between colors when displaying some colorful pictures. It also eliminates the color fault phenomenon.
Huawei MateView has an average color standard △E<2 in the DCI-P3 color gamut, and in the sRGB color gamut the average color standard △E<1, ΔE represents the degree of color deviation.
Smaller value results in more accurate color. Likewise, a higher degree guarantees a higher ΔE value. Under normal circumstances, professional displays can achieve ΔE<2, so the performance of Huawei MateView exceeds the level of professional displays.
When actual measurements through X-Rite were conducted. The first is the color gamut. In the original color gamut mode, Huawei MateView’s screen color gamut can reach 99.9 percent of sRGB, 86.1 percent of Adobe RGB, and 96.5 percent of DCI P3.
As far as color accuracy is concerned, the average color deviation of the Huawei MateView screen is 0.36, and the maximum deviation is only 2.12. The visible color display is accurate.
The △E of Huawei MateView in the sRGB mode is only 0.18, and the maximum value is only 1.2. The performance is good and in line with the official data.
Huawei MateView shows the transition from white to black in a more delicate manner.
It has a brightness of 500nits and also supports VESA DisplayHDRTM 400 professional certification. With the wide color gamut of 98 percent DCI-P3, some pictures with a strong contrast between light and dark present attractive tension.
Huawei MateView display is a mature product. It boasts the excellent DNA of the Mate series of innovation and ultimate experience and introduces the full-scenario smart experience to the display field and brings several different experiences.
It offers a professional and outstanding display effect. The 4K+, 3:2 display ratio large screen is ideal for content creators.
