HUAWEI has long been known for its expertise in technology, primarily with cell phones and laptops. Today, the industry is more demanding than ever and HUAWEI has answered the call, diving into one of the most competitive markets out there, gaming. Though the company has dabbled in the display market in the past with the Display 23.8″ and various laptops, they have now launched the MateView series of monitors. In this case, the MateView GT.
The MateView GT is HUAWEI’s first product breaking them into the gaming space. It’s a 34-inch immersive surround screen behemoth of a gaming monitor, featuring Wide Quad HD (WQHD, 3440 x 1440 pixels) at a 165Hz refresh rate, allowing for a sharp gaming experience. Boasting a 91% screen-to-body ratio and 178 degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles, this will bring one of the most captivating gaming experiences you can find to your own gaming setup. This LCD monitor features 1.07 billion colours, 90% DCI-P3 covering 121% sRgb, a 21:9 aspect ratio, and a 4000:1 contrast ratio, ensuring you never miss a snipe when you dive into some Halo Infinite.
If the screen stats alone aren’t enough to sell you on the MateView GT gaming monitor, its features should do the trick. The device comes with a built-in stereo SoundBar with customizable RGBs. The bar has two full-frequency speakers supporting Standard, Music, Movie, Game and Call effects. The MateView GT also comes with two DMIC mics built into the system. It’s really an all-in-one gaming device.
Of course, this is a curved monitor, but what else makes the MateView GT a stand-out in the gaming space? Competition in the monitor space has primarily been about screen size, resolution and colour. HUAWEI went above and beyond, loading the GT with features tailor designed with gamers in mind, forging a new trajectory for the game industry as a whole.
“The MateView GT comes with a built-in crosshair function giving you added accuracy when shooting.”
On the bottom of the monitor, you’ll find a five-point joystick to guide you through the MateView GT’s settings. Here, you’ll find functions like Dark Field control. This lets you light up your environment, giving you an advantage in games like Call of Duty: Vanguard by boosting sight through darker zones. If you’ve ever played Fortnite and find the bloom on your crosshair infuriating and hard to manage, the MateView GT comes with a built-in crosshair function giving you added accuracy when shooting. This device has even earned TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification and supports DC Dimming technology to eliminate flickering, making longer gaming sessions a breeze with little strain on your eyes.
The MateView GT shares the technological innovation of the Mate Series products like the MateView, Mate X2 and the MateBook X Pro. HUAWEI prides themselves on using the most cutting-edge technology, and really shines with the new MateView Series of monitors. The MateView GT still brings the premium feel that HUAWEI is known for to the table, like a luxury sports car, providing high-performance combined with sleek style.
Versatility is a key factor when HUAWEI develops a new product, which means the MateView GT isn’t just for gamers. The 21:9 aspect ratio absolutely provides an immersive gaming experience, but it also leaves plenty of space for work. Users are able to seamlessly use multiple documents or programs when working or creating. This is perfect for working from home or office, but also a great system for Content Creators who can not only stream, but display their creative interface at the same time.
Whatever you’re connecting to your monitor, the MateView GT has you covered. It supports HDMI, DP and USB-C ports, allowing for consoles, PCs, mobile phones and tablets to be displayed on the screen with ease. The monitor can also detach from its base to be mounted if that is more your aesthetic, and the height and tilt can be adjusted for your personal comfort.
HUAWEI has put gamers at the forefront of their new venture with the MateView GT 34” surround screen gaming monitor. With a high refresh rate, WQHD resolution, dual speakers and super-curved design, this device is sure to bring the most immersive experience possible to your gaming setup. Additionally, features like Dark Field Control and Crosshairs will help give you a leg up in the esports competition. The MateView GT monitor proves to be an extremely well-rounded, all-in-one gaming machine.
