The Huawei MateBook 14 boasts a 14-inch 2K FullView display with thin bezels, giving the display a 90 per cent screen-to-body ratio. This, coupled with its 3:2 aspect ratio, helps to give users a near-borderless, more immersive viewing experience.

To help protect the eyes of its users, Huawei has also made sure the MateBook 14 has received TUV Rheinland low blue light certification to filter out excessive blue light.

The MateBook 14 is the first laptop to come with the Huawei Share integrated into its touchpad as well. This means users who wish to share screen with their smartphone need only place it on the touchpad, and their phone’s screen will be reflected on the laptop’s display.
