HUAWEI Consumer Business Group (CBG) today announced that its new and highly anticipated HUAWEI MateBook D 15 laptop will hit Malaysian shores beginning 18 January. Malaysia is the first market outside of China to introduce the 15.6-inch HUAWEI laptop which has received overwhelming positive user feedback and high satisfaction ratings in China since its launch in October 2019.
Purposefully designed to suit the needs of professionals as well as consumers, the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 introduces a revolutionary cross-platform experience that allows users to seamlessly work with multiple devices through a single pane of glass. The HUAWEI MateBook D 15 inherits the DNA of HUAWEI’s PC products, which is expressed in its aesthetic design, innovative technology and the smart experience that it delivers. On top of its lightweight chassis, FullView display, powerful performance, robust build quality and chic design, the latest HUAWEI MateBook D comes with a range of new features including support for Multi-screen Collaboration. Equipped with a full array of smart capabilities, the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 stands as a powerful companion to today’s tech-savvy consumers.
Matthew Ng, Deputy Country Director, HUAWEI Malaysia, said: “For our PC products, we have stayed true to our mission to bring new experiential innovations with every iteration. With the 15.6-inch HUAWEI MateBook D 15, we focused on delivering the best user experience to consumers. Even though it’s stylish, powerful and smart, it is much more than just a productivity driver – it is the perfect all-scenario device that excels at both work and play.”
The Authentic FullView Display
The ultra-slim laptop market is experiencing rapid growth. Always pursuing design perfection, HUAWEI leaned on its expertise in smartphone technology and system integration capabilities to realise the ultra-slim bezel design on its FullView displays. This design approach lets HUAWEI pack a large display into a portable chassis and offer the best of both worlds.
In line with the rest of the HUAWEI MateBook family, the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 comes with a FullView display. Measuring at just 5.3mm thin, three ultra-thin bezels frame the display, resulting in an outstanding 87 per cent screen-to-body ratio. The lightweight chassis is accentuated by a streamlined design with curved edges to produce a sleeker look. The small enhancements – such as the thinner bezels and recessed camera – allow HUAWEI to further shrink the form factor of the laptop. With dimensions measuring at just 357.8×229.9×16.9mm, the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 is one of the smallest and lightest 15.6-inch laptops in the same price band to date, offering a wide viewing experience in a portable package.
Underneath the anti-glare coating, the 15.6-inch 16:9 IPS panel supports a Full HD (1920×1080) resolution and a maximum opening angle of 178 degrees. The premium display is perfectly suited for any content, whether it is a high-resolution image or a Blu-ray video. The panel on the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 has also been TÜV Rheinland certified for low blue light emission, allowing for better eye protection.
Powerful Processor Offers Solid Performance
Consumers see in PCs not just a tool that lets them work, but a platform that lets them have fun as well. The HUAWEI MateBook D 15 AMD Edition is powered by a 12nm AMD Ryzen™ 5 3500U mobile processor to deliver a powerful performance while retaining a high level of stability and reliability. For GPU, the AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics embedded in the laptop provides outstanding graphics processing support. The HUAWEI MateBook D 15 AMD Edition also includes a new version of the HUAWEI Shark Fin Fan. With the new s-shaped fan blades, HUAWEI Shark Fin Fan 2.0 optimises air flow dynamically for improved cooling and laptop performance.
A portable, multi-purpose 65W USB-C charger and a USB-C to USB-C cable is included with the HUAWEI MateBook D 15. The charger supports all HUAWEI smartphones and tablets that are equipped with a USB-C port. It also features overheat protection, which automatically stops the charging process once the temperature crosses a threshold to ensure safety.
Equipped with up to 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory, the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 has enough memory to handle most high load apps on the market. The solid-state drive (SSD) in the new HUAWEI MateBook D 15 is connected to the mainboard via the high speed PCIe interface. Consumers are given two storage configuration options – the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 may either be configured with an SSD or a combination of SSD and hard disk. For users that require additional storage, capacity may be upgraded at the time of order. It also supports G-sensor, which safeguards the data saved in the hard disk in the event of a drop. The dual-antenna WLAN module effectively receives WLAN signal for enhanced connection speed and stability. On the side, a diverse selection of interfaces can support multiple I/O needs simultaneously, including data transfer, peripheral connection and battery charging.
Smart Connection Made Easy
In November 2018, HUAWEI launched HUAWEI One Tap Share, enabling users to easily transfer files including images and videos between smartphones and PCs. The solution revolutionised the way users move files between Windows and Android devices by addressing the challenges of cross-platform file transfers.
The latest HUAWEI MateBook D Series introduces a new set of cross-screen collaboration capabilities that are built upon the foundations of HUAWEI One Tap Share. The new features enable the HUAWEI MateBook and a HUAWEI smartphone to share a single display, in which users can drag files from one user interface to the other to transfer files, and view the contents saved in the smartphone directly on the laptop. Peripherals connected to the laptop can also be used to navigate the smartphone, giving the laptop users seamless access to the mobile apps without switching device.
Positioned as a series targeting to all consumers, the HUAWEI MateBook D Series is a reflection of premium aesthetic designs, innovative technologies and cutting-edge smart experiences. On one hand, it offers a quality user experience in a compact form factor. On the other, it pushes the envelope of what ultralight laptops can deliver and complements HUAWEI’s overall PC product portfolio. In the future, HUAWEI will continue to bolster its PC product lines to further democratise the all-scenario, smart digital experience for the benefit of more consumers.

The HUAWEI MateBook D15 will retail at RM2,499. It is available in Mystic Silver with the following standard configuration of 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD. It also offers 3 USB ports (1x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0), a 3.5mm headset jack, and a HDMI port.
