Huawei MateBook 14 2020 (AMD) Overview
Design and Display
The MateBook series is all about power and portability and the new MateBook 14 2020 reflects that. It features a Ryzen 4000 H-series processor in a body that is just 15.9mm thick. The majority of the body is made up of an aluminum alloy topped by the sandblasted finish. However, Huawei has gone with a non-metallic material for the hinge and the side covers. Overall, the laptop weighs around 1.49 kg.
Huawei MateBook 14 features a 2K screen (3:2 aspect ratio) with a diagonal length of 14-inches. It sports a FullView Display based on IPS technology. The bezels around the screen are extremely thin except for the bottom chin which houses the company’s branding. The device flaunts a screen to body ratio of 90%. This display panel covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut and supports 10-point multi-touch. The display is also TUV Rheinland certified against blue light emission.
