Meet Huawei MateBook: The Latest Windows 10 Tablet

Huawei
isn’t taking it easy at all… Huawei had one major product announcement during
Mobile World Congress 2016: the MateBook. The tablet, which comes in both grey
and golden, is lighter than it looks (at 640 grams), very slim and features a
very nice 2160×1440 screen with only a very slim bezel around it.

The MateBook is designed to be an alternative to laptops and is thinner than
Microsoft’s rival Surface Pro 4 thanks to its use of a USB-C port.
The Chinese firm is already the world’s third-bestselling mobile
phone-maker, but until now had only made tablets powered by Android.
The MateBook features a 12in
(30.5cm) display and can be clipped into an add-on keyboard and used with a
stylus.
Its advantages over Microsoft’s
Surface Pro 4 are that it is:
  • nearly 20% thinner, measuring 6.9mm
    (0.3in) deep
  • about 20% lighter, weighing 630g
    (1.4lb)
  • has a fingerprint sensor built into
    its side, unlike the Surface Pro which requires its cover to be attached to use
    the feature
Specs
wise you have a variety of sixth-generation Intel Core M processors (a major
let down especially when others have Intel’s more powerful Core i5 or i7
chips), the ability to choose either 4GB or 8GB of RAM and up to a 512GB SSD.
It
comes with a  5MP camera, a 4430mAh battery that Huawei claim will get 10
hours from that battery on a single charge and a fingerprint sensor built
into its side. One other unusual feature about the machine is that its stylus
includes a laser pointer at the opposite end to its nib.
