Huawei has announced the MateBook 16, a device that follows on from the MateBook D 16. Huawei has moved away from the MateBook D 16's design though, and has made the new MateBook 16 look even more like a MacBook Pro 16. Arguably, the MateBook 16 has a few advantages over Apple's flagship MacBook Pro though, in our opinion.

One of the MateBook 16's highlights is its 3:2 display, which runs at 2,520 x 1,680 pixels. Unfortunately, the IPS panel peaks at 300 nits, which is rather dim. Additionally, Huawei has equipped the device with AMD Ryzen 5000 APUs, the Ryzen 5 5600H and Ryzen 7 5800H, to be precise. Both processors come with 16 GB of RAM, a 512 GB SSD and an 84 Wh battery, too.

The MateBook 16 measures 351 x 254.9 x 17.88 mm and weighs 1.99 kg. The laptop does not have a dedicated GPU option, which is a shame, but the integrated Vega GPU should be enough for most tasks. Huawei is selling the MateBook 16 in two configurations, starting at CNY 6,299 (~US$979), although it is unclear if plans to release the laptop globally.
