Huawei smartphone line might be screwed at the moment but that doesn’t mean the end for the business as a whole and that’s because the Chinese tech brand continues to release a number of cool high-end products despite the dire situation it found itself in.
The company apparently released a new gaming monitors earlier on today in China and these are the MateView and MateView GT monitor targeted at professional gamers but hell yeah, this will be a graphic-centric device that can be used on an array of other high-performance tasks such as video editing, computer programming or graphic design.
MateView is the base model
The base model of both gaming monitors is the MateView monitor which comes with a 28.2-inch display and a 3840 x 2560 resolution with a 3:2 aspect ratio. The minimalist design of the monitor makes it sleek and very Huawei-like.
It features an IPS display with a max brightness of 500 nits while also supporting HDR400 and a standard 60Hz refresh ratee.
It further adds up a 1200:1 aspect ration, a 94 percent screen to body ratio and 98 percent DCI-P3 color gamut with 100% sRGB color configuration.
For ports, it offers a single USB C for power supply, and another for display, data transmission, external charging up to 65W. Other ports include, two USB A 3.0 ports, an HDMI 2.0, a MiniDP, and even a 3.5 mm headphone and microphone port.
Then the high-end MateView GT
The MateView GT is solely targeted at professional gamers and it comes with a slightly larger 34-inch curved display offering the great viewing angles for the human eyes. It has a maximum brightness of 350 nits as well as a 21:9 aspect ratio and 4000:1 aspect ratio as well.
Screen resolution wise, it sports a 3440 x 1440 screen resolution and has a really powerful 165Hz refresh rate which should tell you this is a no-joke gaming monitor.
Huawei has even included TÜV Rheinland Eye Care Certification for the MateView GT to ensure long gaming sessions to not strain the users eye. Despite being a gaming monitor, the brand has also added 90 percent DCI-P3 and 100 percent sRGB color gamut as well. Another notable inclusion with the GT variant is the addition of a dual 5W speaker that is fixed on the base of the monitor.
And both devices are on the premium side of the table with the base MateView being estimated to cost around CN¥ 4,699 (US730) and in terms of color option, reports states it will be available only in white color and could be available as soon as the 1st of June while the bigger MateView GT will be slightly cheaper costing around CN¥3,599 which is about US$560 and will come in black finish for the Chinese market.
