Huawei MateBook E refresh to be unveiled on November 17
Huawei teased a new iteration of the MateBook E convertible via its Weibo account today. This device will be unveiled during a November 17 event along with the Watch GT Runner and other products from the smart ecosystem. With all the restrictions and bans Huawei had to go through recently, the MateBook E series has not seen a refresh since 2019. That version switched from Intel's Y-series SoCs to Qualcomm's Snapdraghon 850.
The teaser image shows that the new version still features a detachable keyboard and also comes with a Huawei M Pencil stylus and mouse. The tablet itself appears to have narrower bezels and the screen corners are now slightly rounded, while the back side now appears to feature a fingerprint sensor. Expect to see significant changes with the overall look, screen, keyboard functionality and stylus. It will also run Windows 11 natively and is supposed to easily connect to other smart devices that will be presented on November 17.
Hardware specs are currently unknown, but if Huawei wants to integrate 5G features, it might want to switch again to Intel’s SoCs or even AMD’s, since Qualcomm is forced to provide only 4G SoCs. An OLED screen could be included, as well.
