The latest MateBook E variant from Huawei is a Go today (September 6, 2022). The convertible has a 12.35-inch display with 120Hz SKUs and a 2.5K display compatible with the OEM's latest stylus. It runs Windows 11 using the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 processor and, as such, starts much cheaper than its flagship sibling in China.

Huawei has made its new MateBook E Go official as the world's latest Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3-based PC. It is a Windows 11 tablet at its heart that comes in Nebula Gray or Snow White finishes; however, it has launched with 2 further color SKUs based on the magnetic keyboard dock/cover with which each of these new devices is bundled: Sakura Pink or Interstellar Blue.

The MateBook E Go also supports Huawei's second-gen M-Pen, and, thus, 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and as little as 2 millisecons of latency; however, this accessory does not come in the box. The E Go's 16:10 display boasts a 2.5K resolution, eye-protection features and a Natural Color mode that adjusts the screen's color temperature automatically based on ambient light conditions; then again, it is also IPS rather than OLED and has no more than 400 nits of rated maximum brightness.

Therefore, the Bluetooth 5.1/Wi-Fi 6 E Go is clearly pitched as a new cost-effective alternative to other similar MateBook-series devices. On the other hand, Huawei has chosen to debut Multi-device Communication in this PC, a new ecosystem feature rated to streamline connectivity between it and a Huawei smartphone (even one of the new Mate 50 series) in a way that allows the E Go to share its data connection automatically, thereby eliminating the traditional UI process to set up or use a mobile hotspot.

In addition, Huawei has graced the E Go with up to 14 hours of battery life and a design that places its dual USB type-C ports at central positions on either side of the device, for, as the OEM asserts, increased convenience and ease of connection. The 2 ports also have the same specs: USB3.2 Gen 1 for data; DisplayPort mode support and 65W charging. There is also 3.5mm jack support, albeit through just 1 port in this case.

The MateBook E Go has launched in standard and "Performance" variants, although the only real difference between the 2 is that the latter is the only one with a 120Hz refresh rate. Either variant has been unveiled in Wi-Fi only or 4G/LTE SKUs that starts at 4,199 yuan (~US$603) for an 8GB RAM/128GB standard SKU, rising to 5,499 yuan (~US$791) for a 16GB/512GB Performance Edition with 4G/LTE.
