Huawei MateBook 2-in-1 With Windows 10 Launched At MWC 2016

Chinese giant Huawei has forayed into PC segment by launching state of the art flagship laptop and tablet hybrid – MateBook. This device will compete with Apple’s iPad Pro and the Microsoft Surface.

Huawei-Matebook-01The MateBook has been designed as a mobile productivity tool that seamlessly integrates mobility, high efficiency, work, entertainment and has been built on Huawei’s success in delivering beautiful and powerful smartphones.

Starting at $699/€799, the MateBook is a convertible device, and can be used as a laptop and a tablet. The MateBook has a sleek appearance with weight of just 640 grams. It is made of high-quality aluminum unibody that is both elegant and sophisticated. The MateBook features a strong protective body to withstand the rigors of an on-the-go lifestyle.


The MateBook features a 12-inch IPS multi-touch screen with an ultra-narrow frame and a screen-to-body ratio of 84 percent. The screen boasts a resolution of 2160×1440 and a 160-degree wide angle for an immersive experience. The color gamut reaches an impressive 85 percent, capable of displaying true-to-life colors.

The MateBook keyboard case is made of environmentally friendly, soft PU leather. The keyboard features a 1.5mm keystroke and a chiclet keycap design, which allows for larger key surfaces to minimize typing errors. The built-in touchpad uses multi-touch technology that supports smooth and precise finger movements, combining comfort and utility.

The MateBook runs on Windows 10 and is powered by a 6th Generation Intel Core m-series processor. The device offers up to 8GB of LPDDR3 memory and a solid-state hard drive with capacity up to 512GB.

The MateBook is packed with 33.7Wh high-density Lithium battery which is claimed to be good for nine hours of work, nine consecutive hours of Internet use and 29 hours of music playback. The device also features Huawei’s exclusive power-saving technology and can attain a full charge in just two-and-a-half hours. When there is not enough time for a full charge, the device can power up to 60 percent battery strength in just one hour.


The MateBook also features MatePen stylus which offers 2,048 levels of sensitivity, perfectly capturing users’ subtle and diverse pen-tip actions with zero delay. For advanced business functions, MatePen supports graphics and mathematic functions, and can be used as a laser pointer for delivering presentations. The MatePen is an optifonal accessory and is priced $ 59.

Huawei-Matebook-07The MateBook provides security with the fingerprint recognition feature that supports 360-degree sensitive identification for fewer authentication failures. It takes only one touch to unlock the MateBook’s screen – the fastest fingerprint recognition in the industry.
