Huawei announces MateBook E 2-in-1 device with 2K display, advanced Folio Keyboard
Huawei has just unveiled a brand new 2-in-1 device that's meant to compete with Microsoft's new Surface Pro that went official earlier today. The MateBook E is Huawei's next generation slate that promises speed, elegance, and mobility, allowing consumers to stay connected to everyone while on the go.
As the title says, Huawei MateBook E sports a 12-inch display with 2160 x 1440 pixels resolution and 400 nits brightness. The 2-in-1 device weighs 640g (without keyboard) or 1.1Kg (keyboard included).
Hardware-wise, the MateBook E is equipped with either a 7th Generation Intel Core m3or i5 processor, coupled with 4GB or 8GB of RAM. The 2-in-1 device will come in different SSD variations: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
Huawei's new product comes with an advanced Folio Keyboard that features a hinge adjustable up to 160 degrees. Also, the Chinese company announced that the number of Pogo pins had been reduced from seven to three, thus improving the docking mode over the previous generation.
The MateBook E promises exceptional multimedia experience thanks to the dual speakers outfitted with Dolby Audio Premium support. A 5-megapixel front camera is included as well, along with a 4,430 mAh battery that's been confirmed to offer about 9 hours of video playback time.
The USB-C port features support for data transfer and battery charging. Other connectivity options include 3.5mm stereo headset jack, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi support. The Huawei Mate E is equipped with several optional accessories, including a brand new, multi-functional MateDock 2 and a MatePen.
Huawei MateBook E prices start at €999 for the m3/4GB/128GB SSD model and go up to €1299 for the i5/8GB/256GB SSD version. The 2-in-1 device will be available for purchase this summer in three color variations: Blue, Brown, and Pink.
