Huawei just unveiled the MateBook hybrid at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, today. The MateBook is Huawei’s first 2-in-1 Windows 10 device ever, and it aims to complete with renowned manufacturers, like Apple, Lenovo or Samsung. We already told you that people believe that Huawei will deliver a new Windows 10 device with a pen at this year’s MWC, and as it turned out, the predictions were true.

The Huawei Mate book is a device for business users, and as Huawei presented it, this hybrid will deliver a great mix of design, performance and durability. Acer already also unveiled the Plus 10, its first Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet, as well.

Huawei Matebook Features

The Huawei Mtebook sports a 12-inch display, with a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels. The display won’t be the sharpest on the market, but it still will provide bright colors, and quality image. It is powered by the Intel Core M processor (with M3, M5, or M7 variants), and has 8GB of RAM memory, and 512GB of internal storage. The device is 6.9mm thick, which is same as the iPhone 6.

As Huawei said, the main purpose of this device is to increase user’s productivity, so it comes with good 9 hours of battery life, which should be more than enough for daily work. One of the most interesting features that come with the MateBook is a digital pen with 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity. There are also two front buttons, which act as left or right mouse clicks.

Another interesting addition is that the back of the pan features a laser pointer. But unfortunately, just like it’s the case with Microsoft’s Surface devices, the pen will be offered separated from the Huawei Matebook, as well as the keyboard.

The keyboard has a glass trackpad, which should add up to Huawei’s idea of improved productivity even more. Huawei said that the Matebook will arrive later this year, with the price range from $699 to $1,599 (depending on the variant). While the pen and keyboard will be offered for $129 and $59, respectively.
