Huawei took the world by storm at the WMC 2016 with the lunching of a device, not a phone but a tablet called the Huawei Matebook, which is their very first 2-in-1 Windows 10 laptop/tablet hybrid. The thin, light, attractive MateBook obviously takes a few design cues from Apple’s iPad Pro, and it comes with its own full size keyboard and a pressure-sensitive digital pen for writing or drawing on the screen.
CAMERA AND DISPLAY
The Huawei MateBook features a 12in touch-enabled IPS Quad HD resolution display with a pretty impressive resolution of 2160×1440. It’s fairly bright at 400nits, which should be helpful when trying to use the MateBook in bright conditions. The bezels on the Huawei Mate Book aren’t that thick, so it gives a good body to screen ratio, at the same time leaving enough place for the thumbs to grip is properly in the tablet mode
Concerning the Camera, the MateBook features a 5Mp front-facing camera for the likes of Skype and selfie-taking, but in an interesting move has decided not to feature a rear-facing camera.
HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE
The MateBook features an Intel Core M processor (M3, M5 or M7 depending on the configuration) up to 3.1GHz, which allows the device to be fan-less. It has a built-in heat shield with eight layers, which should help dissipate the heat generated over the aluminum body and provide decent battery life and performance. This is the major differentiating factor from the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, as it houses the top of the line Intel Core i-series processor, which naturally requires a fan to cool the processor down.
The devices can have either 4GB/8GB of RAM, 128GB/256GB/512GB of internal storage, and an Intel M processor which makes browsing the web much easier and running your favourite apps. The tablet is also the second Huawei device to come with a USB-C slot after the Nexus 6P.
The MatePen also comes with a laser pointer on the back, making it suitable for presentations or business meetings. The MatePen, unlike the Surface Pen, can’t be docked or attached to the Matebook, so you’ll have to carry the thing around separately. The good news there is that one hour of charging gives it 100 hours of battery life, so it will be ready to go whenever you pick it up.
The Matebook will have a battery capacity of 33.7Wh, which translates to 4430mAh. It’ll charge quickly via USB C.
