Huawei MateBook laptops might show up at MWC

The Chinese giant is expected to enter the laptop market later this year, having patented the MateBook brand back in 2015.

Although the PC market is slowly going down and convertibles are overrunning classic notebooks, it looks like Huawei has decided to attack this sector as well. Back in 2012, the Chinese company headquartered in Shenzhen became the largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer worldwide, pushing Ericsson aside. 

Huawei patented the MateBook brand last year, and now insiders claim the first portables from this family will show up at MWC 2016, the world's largest gathering for the mobile industry that will take place in Barcelona between February 22 and 25. Unfortunately, the details mentioned by the rumors only include Intel Core processors and the Windows platform. Not even insiders can tell for sure if Huawei will go with the traditional laptop design or choose a 2-in-1 design at this time. Obviously, it is also possible that the MateBook family will include traditional laptops and 2-in-1 convertibles as well.

For now, we should just wait for the next batch of Huawei MateBook-related rumors or maybe for the official announcement. After all, MWC 2016 is only a month away.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
