Microsoft is yet to repurpose the Surface Studio as an external monitor, but the Huawei MateView comes close to realising that dream. The MateView has a 3:2 aspect ratio, a 28-inch panel size, a 4K native resolution and plenty of built-in ports.

Huawei has finally announced the MateView, its 3:2 monitor. While Microsoft popularised the 3:2 aspect ratio with the Surface series, but it has not released a comparable external monitor. The Surface Studio and its successor are the closest representation of a Surface monitor, but the MateView is the only 3:2 external monitor of which we are aware.

The MateView utilises a 28.2-inch IPS panel, although it is unclear from where Huawei has sourced it. The display runs natively at 3,840 x 2,560 pixels and peaks at 500 nits, while Huawei claims that it is VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified. Additionally, the MateView supposedly covers 98% of the DCI-P3 colour space and has a Delta E deviation of under 2, making it suitable for professional use.

Moreover, the MateView has dual 5 W speakers, a host of ports and an NFC chip for transferring files from a Huawei smartphone. In our opinion, a 60 Hz refresh rate is the MateView's only downside; if you like 3:2 aspect ratios, that is.

The Huawei Mateview will retail for CNY 4,699 (~US$731) in China. Huawei has not announced if the monitor will be available outside its home market, though.
