Huawei MateBook: A Tablet that Bridges the Gap Between Productivity and Portability

Huawei, today announced that Huawei MateBook will be available for purchase July 11 in the United States and Canada. Pre-order of Huawei's first 2-in-1 PC begins today through Microsoft Stores. Additionally, MateBook will be available from Amazon and Newegg starting mid-July.

Huawei MateBook, which was unveiled in February at Mobile World Congress, is designed to meet the evolving needs of today's modern business users, and is an ideal mobile productivity tool that seamlessly integrates portability, high efficiency, work and entertainment. It will be available in multiple configurations and two sharp colors: gray and gold.

Starting at $699, MateBook answers the demand for an ultra-thin, stylish computer that allows users to be productive in any setting. Designed as a total solution for consumers who enjoy the flexibility of a convertible device and the power of a PC, MateBook is the work companion that perfectly balances mobility, productivity and design.

"Huawei MateBook has generated incredible excitement since its launch at Mobile World Congress and attracted rave reviews from technology enthusiasts around the world," said Yanyan Ji, Vice President of Marketing, Huawei Device USA. "MateBook combines the best of a tablet and laptop, and demonstrates the type of premium experience Huawei customers expect and Huawei is known for."

MateBook runs on Windows 10 and is powered by a 6th Generation Intel® Core™ m-series processor. Its metal unibody weighs in at just 640 grams and is 6.9 mm thin. MateBook features an immersive 12-inch touchscreen with a 2160 x 1440 resolution and 160-degree viewing angles. The high-density lithium-ion battery is quickly charged via USB Type-C to provide enough power for up to nine hours of work. MateBook also features an ultra-fast fingerprint sensor, taking only one touch to unlock the screen through Windows Hello.

The MateBook takes advantage of Intel's power-sipping premium m-series processors, built especially for hybrid computing devices.

"Intel is thrilled to see Huawei enter the PC space with the very innovative MateBook 2-in-1," said Chris Walker, Vice President and General Manager of Mobile Client Platforms, Intel. "This is the type of premium, sleek device that takes full advantage of the low power and big performance of the Intel Core m processor."

Along with fast speeds, Huawei MateBook features a wide range of experiences with Windows 10, built for today's mobile-first world.

"It's great to see that Huawei has expanded its portfolio to add such a beautiful new Windows 10 device," said Jordan Chrysafidis, Vice President of U.S. OEMs, Microsoft Corp. "We collaborated closely with Huawei to ensure that the MateBook seamlessly brought innovative Windows 10 features to life, including Windows Ink and Windows Hello using a fingerprint reader. We look forward to seeing the great things customers will do with this new device."

To make the most of MateBook's mobile productivity features, Huawei offers smart and stylish accessories that transform MateBook into the workspace of the future:

"Huawei brings a wealth of experience and expertise in building premium mobile products that fit the needs of today's mobile consumers," said Ms. Ji. "MateBook redefines productivity seamlessly integrating work and entertainment in one beautiful device."
