Huawei unveils hybrid MateBook

Huawei has unveiled a hybrid laptop to compete with the iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface. The two-in-one device, called the MateBook, functions as a laptop, but the screen can be detached to operate as a tablet, which will run Microsoft’s Windows 10.

Alongside its 12-inch full HD touchscreen, the MateBook additionally can be used with a stylus – the MatePen – which doubles as a laser pointer for presentations.

However both the MatePen and attachable keyboard will be sold separately. The hybrid comes with 8GB of memory for mobile use, and a hard drive with 512GB of space.

The attachable keyboard is made from soft leather, Huawei said, with the device set to be made available in a range of four colours including black, brown, orange and beige. It also weighs only 640g and is as thin as an iPhone 6.


Size: 278.8×194.1×6.9mm
Weight: 640g
Display: 12-inch 2160×1440 IPS
Operating System: Windows 10
Memory RAM: 4 GB
Storage: 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB
Camera: 5 MP
Price: Starts at $699/€799

The device also features Huawei’s power-saving technology and the MateBook’s battery can be fully charged in just two-and-a-half hours.
