Huawei MateBook gets a new version
Huawei has big plans with its first convertible tablet, the MateBook. They launched this Windows-driven portable back at MWC 2016, with 256 GB and 512 GB SSD variants for the international market. Now, a variant with just 128 GB of storage space hits the Chinese market.
According to PadNews, the "new" Huawei MateBook has the same all-metal design as the international version. Its main specs include the Intel Core m5 6Y54 processor, 8 GB RAm, and the 128 GB SSD mentioned earlier. The operating system on board remains the same - Windows 10. Dual speakers and a 33.7 Wh battery are also included, as well as a detachable keyboard and the MatePen stylus.
Huawei MateBook starts at $699 USD in the US, but can go all the way up to $1,599 USD, depending on the hardware setup. The pricing of the new variant for China is not public yet, but we will get back to it if we find out more. Sending a cheaper model to more emerging markets might be a good idea for Huawei, but that remains to be seen.
