The Hidden Secrets Of The Huawei Matebook

The Huawei MateBook is a sleek, lightweight laptop powered by Windows 10. The system is housed in an aluminum unibody chassis and has a 13.3-inch display with a 14 inches (35.5cm) screen real estate when in laptop mode, which can also be used as a tablet with the included touch stylus pen, HiPen H2. 

The Huawei MateBook features an ultrathin 4mm bezel display that maximizes the viewing area without compromising on comfort or performance when using it in tablet mode, making it feel much lighter than other laptops in its category – 2 kg vs 3kg for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, to give you one example.

The Huawei MateBook is powered by the Intel Core m3-7Y30 processor and includes 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 256GB of high-speed eMMC Flash storage, and a non-removable 4G/LTE SIM card slot. It also packs an impressive 3,000mAH battery with fast charging technology that can provide up to 30 minutes of power in just 5 minutes.

Huawei MateBook Feature

The Huawei MateBook features a 2160×1440 display with a resolution of 3:2 aspect ratio (the same as many traditional laptops), meaning that it uses more vertical pixels than horizontal pixels for the same vertical screen resolution on paper. However, the actual usable screen area is the same as other 16:9 aspect ratio laptops with the same vertical resolution. The panel type is IPS, which gives it great viewing angles and color reproduction. It uses a Wacom AES 3 digitizing technology and Force Touch technology (the display is pressed to trigger different events). According to Wacom, it supports 5 points of contact, but this information has not been confirmed on Huawei’s official website.

  • Powered By

The Huawei MateBook is powered by Intel Core m3-7Y30 processor (2 cores/4 threads) based on the Skylake architecture and runs Windows 10 Home 64-bit out of the box. The system has 2/6GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 128GB of eMMC Flash storage. It also has a non-removable 4G/LTE SIM card slot, so it can take on an LTE network.

  • Configuration

The Huawei MateBook comes in one configuration, with one 8GB RAM model and a 256GB SSD model (which costs more). Both are preinstalled with Windows 10 Home 64-bit out of the box. The system comes with Windows 10 Pro (or Enterprise) Professional for $999 (3rd gen), and Starter Edition for $799 (2nd gen) – both prices are subject to VAT: 0% for the EU or 15% for China.

  • Capability

The Huawei MateBook comes with a “multi-angle” 360° hinge, 4mm thin bezel display, Wacom AES 3 digitizing technology and Force Touch technology. The stylus pen is not stored in the chassis, but in an unnoticeable recess at the back of the device.

Huawei MateBook has 4G/LTE capabilities (only in some markets), which makes it a notebook that can be used completely offline, or connected to a mobile network.

Final Words

Although the Huawei MateBook does not come with a keyboard and mouse in the box, Huawei does include a USB-C dongle for a wired USB-A keyboard and mouse. A mobile Wacom AES 3 digitizing technology (it has been implemented in many mainstream notebooks like the Microsoft Surface) pen also comes in the box along with its charging dock.
