Huawei introduced the MateBook 16 as its first-ever 16-inch 3:2 display laptop in May 2021. However, it has only been available on the Chinese market since then. Now, however, the up-to-Ryzen 7 5800H device is now officially coming to Europe soon.

Huawei originall touted the Matebook 16 as its first truly high-performance laptop in early 2021. The panel's cutting-edge proportions are joined by a 2520x1680 resolution, bezels that confer a 90% screen-to-body ratio and a 300-nit brightness (that seems to be the theme of today (October 5, 2021) so far).

The MateBook 16 is also rated to support 100% of the sRGB color-space and an average delta-E of around 1. Now, it also, finally, has European pricing and (approximate) availability. The OEM has announced that it is coming to its new market in both of its main Ryzen 5 5600H- and Ryzen 7 5800H-powered options. They both still have their 16GB of RAM and 512GB NVMe SSDs, storage.

These Bluetooth 5.1- and Wi-Fi 6-enabled Matebook 16 SKUs have been revealed to cost €1,099 (~US$1,274) and €1,199 (~$1,390) respectively. However, Huawei has yet to add release dates for the machines at these prices, not to mention precise retail channels or methods. Therefore, interested consumers now face an uncertain and hopefully short wait for their next potential "high-performance" MacBook Pro 16 alternative.
