If you’re in the market for a capable office laptop powered by Intel’s 10th Gen processor, then you may want to check out what Huawei has to offer. The company recently announced its latest entry to the MateBook series in the Philippines, with the launch of the Intel Core i3 variant of the Huawei MateBook D15 2021.
(Update, August 6: We show you why we highly recommend this Huawei MateBook D 15 2021 model!)
Now the most affordable Huawei laptop in the country, this MateBook model has a suggested retail price of P31,999 (around $662 converted) and is available in the same Mystic Silver color variant as the 11th Gen MateBook D15 2021 we reviewed recently. If you buy it now, you’ll also receive freebies worth P5,279 ($109), including a Huawei Band 4 fitness tracker, a Huawei Backpack Swift, and a Bluetooth speaker.
Freebies if you buy the Huawei MateBook D15 2021 Intel Core i3 version anytime between today, June 18, until July 9
Virtually, the newest addition to the MateBook family uses the same chassis as the MateBook D15 2021 with 11th and 10th Gen Core i5 internals, except you get a 10th Gen Core i3-10110U chip paired with an Intel UHD Graphics 620 GPU, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and 256GB of PCIe SSD storage. It still has an NFC tag for Huawei Share to make it easier to share files between the notebook and compatible Huawei devices.

Plus, you get the same 15.6-inch TÜV Rheinland-certified FullView Display with Huawei’s Eye Comfort feature as the more expensive variants; it reduces blue light and adjusts screen colors so they appear warmer, protecting your eyes in the process. The Core i3 MateBook D15 2021 also ships with a 65-watt USB-C power adapter that is claimed to charge the laptop battery to 53% in 30 minutes and can be used to top up other USB-C devices as well.
Other notable hardware specs include a fingerprint reader embedded into the power button; a hidden pop-up webcam; two USB 2.0 ports; a USB 3.0 port; a USB-C port; and an HDMI interface. As expected, this MateBook boots Microsoft Windows 10 Home out of the box.
