Huawei has unveiled hybrid tablet and laptop Huawei MateBook at Mobile World Congress 2016. New device is equipped with processors Intel Core M and runs on operating system Windows 10.
Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, which starts tomorrow, February 22, began with a surprise from Huawei – Chinese company introduced computer. No, it’s not a joke, but only a slight exaggeration.
Huawei MateBook is a hybrid laptop and tablet with connected keyboard (like Microsoft Surface).
Keyboard is built into the leather case that protects a screen. There are four colors to choose from, including a very nice brown and orange. The device looks very original, but main question is: why company has released a tablet-transformer?
Everything is logical: the sale of such devices are growing. Especially on the background of falling demand for traditional laptops.
Features Huawei MateBook
Huawei MateBook is thinner and lighter than iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface 3 Pro. Fully metal body, fingerprint reader, battery capacity 4430 mAh.
Charger looks like traditional laptop charger in terms of power, but it weighs only 110 grams – almost as a charger for smartphone.
Huawei MateBook has a stylus. Tablet operates 2048 degrees of pressure sensitivity – you can comfortably draw cool pictures. Also Chinese company showed new application Autodesk for Windows.
The keyboard is almost analogue of Microsoft Surface. Keyboard has a pressed depth of 1.5 mm – as some of thin laptops.
What is the result? We’ve got another big tablet that can transform into a laptop by connected keyboard. It is worth noting that not many competitors in the market: Samsung and Microsoft. However, the Chinese device has one important advantage – stylus and opportunities to draw.
Well, I think that Huawei MateBook is more useful than iPad Pro. I like to work with Windows 10 and Intel processors. Besides the thickness of tablet is only 6.9 mm.
Modifications Huawei MateBook
As it usually happens with the devices on Windows, Huawei MateBook has several modifications. The simplest model of Huawei MateBook has Intel Core M3, 4GB RAM and 128GB of internal memory and price $699. The most expensive model of Huawei MateBook has Intel Core M7, 8GB of RAM and 512GB of flash memory and price $1599.
We agree that the price Huawei MateBook is high, but iPad Pro does not even dream about such specifications. What do you think about first Huawei computer?
