At the Mobile World Congress 2016 Huawei unveiled its ultra-thin, 12-inch tablet/laptop hybrid MateBook, a device that the company will launch in the UAE this June.
What is MateBook?
It is a premium business tablet that transforms into a full-blown Windows 10 laptop when connected to a keyboard cover accessory, a concept made popular by Microsoft’s Surface line-up.
According to Gene Jijao, regional president for Huawei Consumer Business Group, it’s a device essentially targeted at business travelers who prefer using the two-in-one device (tablet/laptop hybrid) – lightweight with more battery life – as opposed to a regular laptop.
Huawei has successfully channelled its comprehensive experience and excellence in building premium mobile products into the needs of the modern business environment, Jijao says, adding that the MateBook, as a mobile productivity tool, will seamlessly integrate mobility, high efficiency, work and entertainment.
Weighing 640 grams, the MateBook is lighter than the 713-gram iPad Pro and 766-gram Surface Pro 4 from Microsoft. It will be priced from $699-to-1,599, depending on the specifications and storage capacity.
The device features a sixth Generation Intel Core M-series dual-core processor up to 3.1GHz speed, from 4-to-8GB RAM, and from 128-to-512GB storage capacity. Huawei has also thrown in an optional pressure-sensitive stylus accessory into the package.
