Huawei has expanded its Matebook range with the 14.2-inch MateBook 14s. The new model promises a smart productivity experience with a raft of novel features, including AI Noise Cancellation, but it’s a more than capable gaming laptop too.
The MateBook 14s features a 2.5K touch FullView high brightness (400 nit) display in a 3:2 ratio, and runs the new 11th Gen Intel Core Processor and Intel Iris XE graphics. It boasts improved audio, with an integrated quad tweeter/woofer speaker sound system.
Battery life is solid, capable of 13 hours of video playback. If you run low, 15 minutes from the supplied charger will gain you three hours of full operating use.
To improve online meetings, the MateBook 14s also comes with the industry’s first Personal Voice Enhancement technology, designed to eliminate ambient noise while picking up the user’s voice.
“If you’re in a busy working environment but lots of people talking around you, if you’re in a cafe or if you’re just working at home, this device actually learns your voice, and is able to filter out all the other voices,” explains Huawei Marketing Director Winston Eavis.
The new model was launched at Park Row, in London, the new DC Comics Gotham City themed cocktail bar.

Additional feature niceties include a highly tactile keyboard that utilises a proprietary Soft-landing Design, a Fingerprint Power Button, and face recognition. The Matebook 14s also has advanced connectivity options for smartphones and tablets, and is Wi-Fi 6 compliant.
The screen offers 10-point multi-touch support with a 100 per cent sRGB wide colour gamut.
The display supports up to 90Hz refresh rate for smooth content browsing. Users can toggle between a 60Hz power-saving performance or 90Hz for smoother visuals.

Connectivity includes two USB-C ports, a 3.5mm audio output and an HDMI output.
The Matebook 14s tips the scales at 1.43kg, and comes in a choice of three colours: Space Gray, Mystic Silver, and Spruce Green. Prices start at £1199.99, from Huawei’s online store.
