Yesterday, Huawei unveiled a range of new products here in the UAE including the Watch 3|3 Pro, the new 12.6″ MatePad Pro, FreeBuds 4, MateView and MateView GT. We had previous heard off these products during the global announcement but now they’re here in the UAE.
Looking at the changes in global work culture, Huawei also introduced their ‘Super Device’ concept at the event. The idea is very simple. Huawei has created their latest devices to seamlessly connect and collaborate in a convenient and secure manner.
During this occasion Pablo Ning President of Consumer Business Group in the Middle East and Africa commented: “Today marks the most important launch event this year as we are about to unveil a new range of “Super Device” Experience Products across the region and in the United Arab Emirates specifically.” He added: “Through this new range of Super Device products, Huawei is giving consumers in the UAE access to a seamless and truly intelligent experience across multiple devices in all different types of scenarios. The Super Device new products range is just another step in our efforts to deliver the best possible future oriented user experience with a forward-looking approach.”
Huawei understands that with more people working from home or other ‘non-office- environments, the need for non-traditional work devices is essential. Their new ‘Smart Office’ experience brings a productivity hub which enables a higher level of creativity, efficiency and even much more leisure.
At the event, we saw this experience created with the Huawei MateView, MatePad Pro and Matebook. Supported by the distributed data management and task scheduling capabilities of HarmonyOS, the tablet, laptop and smart monitor can work together seamlessly to double productivity and creativity in different scenarios, whether you are in the office or working from home.
At the live demo, we got a quick view of the “Super Device” in action. Switching from watching a movie on the MatePad Pro to working on MateBook was extremely easy. All this happens on the MateView which has a slick look and even sleeker controls. You can do things like dragging and dropping between devices, switch from work mode to personal mode, and much more.

Huawei Watch 3|3 Pro
Running on HarmonyOS, the Huawei Watch 3|3 Pro come with a polished stainless-steel watch body adorned with a pane of ultra-curved 3D glass and a large display, culminating an elegant design for the smart timepiece series.
