Huawei MateView GT 165Hz ultra-wide gaming monitor goes global, flat MateView in tow
Huawei recently unveiled a few MateView branded monitors in China, now the company is launching them in several regions around the world. One is a curved gaming monitor, the other is flat and optimized for productivity.
Huawei MateView GT
This is Huawei’s first gaming monitor and it’s also optimized for multimedia, so you can edit video on it. It features a 34-inch LCD display with a 21: 9 aspect ratio (3440 x 1440 px resolution) and a curvature of 1500R.
It has a 165Hz refresh rate and in-game features like Crosshairs and Dark Field Control (it crushes overexposed and dark areas to help you spot your opponents faster). The screen promises 350 nits of typical brightness and a contrast ratio of 4000: 1.
Image quality is pretty solid with HDR10 support, 90% DCI-P3 coverage, and 121% sRGB coverage. The panels are calibrated in deltaE
165Hz at 1440p isn’t easy to cram a cable, so the monitor comes with a DisplayPort 1.4. For lower refresh rates, you can also use the two HDMI 2.0 ports and there is a full USB-C port, as well as another Type-C port used as a power input.
The monitor has a built-in sound bar with stereo speakers, 2x 2.5W. There are also two microphones, so you can use it for voice chat (or you can plug a headset into the 3.5mm combo jack). The soundbar has an RGB backlit touch control that can be used to adjust the volume, but also offers customizable lighting effects.
The height of the stand can be adjusted by 110mm (4.3 “) and you can tilt the screen from -5º-20º. There is also a standard VESA100 mount. In the box you will find a powerful 135W adapter (enough for the monitor, but also to power the devices connected to the USB-C port) and several cables.
The Huawei MateView GT will be available in Western, Central and Eastern Europe, Nordic countries, Russia, Japan, Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, Middle East, Africa and other regions.
Huawei Mate View
If you don’t use a YouTube gaming channel, the MateView may be the best monitor. It has a 28.2-inch flat-panel IPS LCD display with a 3: 2 aspect ratio and higher resolution to boot, 3,840 x 2,560px.
As well as being sharper, it’s also brighter at 500 nits (typical), with DisplayHDR 400 certification and flicker-free DC dimming. The contrast is not as good, however, 1200: 1. Yet this one also supports 10-bit color depth, covers 98% DCI-P3 and 100% sRGB. These panels are calibrated in deltaE
This monitor can be the central hub of your office. It has a USB-C port with video support and 65W charging, which means you can plug in your phone or laptop with just one cable. There is optional OneHop wireless connection (it only works with some Huawei phones with Kirin 980 or later and EMUI 12.0 or later), so you can mirror your phone screen wirelessly.
To connect a desktop computer, you also have access to a mini DisplayPort 1.2 and an HDMI 2.0 port (note: HDMI 2.0 is limited to 50 Hz at full resolution, use DisplayPort or USB-C if you want to operate at 60 Hz) . The monitor also has two USB-A 3.0 ports and if you have a keyboard and mouse plugged in, it can double as a KVM switch.
This model also has better speakers, 2x 5W, in addition to two microphones that can pick up your voice up to 4m (13ft). Or you can use the 3.5mm combo jack with wired headphones.
The monitor comes with a 135W AC adapter, which allows the USB-C port to output 65W.
