As part of the presentation of new products in Shanghai, Huawei showed an updated version of the hybrid laptop MateBook E. In comparison with the original model of 2017, built on the basis of energy-efficient Intel processors, the presented version received Snapdragon 850, which is designed specifically for computers running Windows 10.
Huawei MateBook E 2019 has a 12-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 2160x1440 pixels and a screen aspect ratio of 3:2. The device can be used both as a tablet and as a laptop, connecting to it a proprietary keyboard-case.
Using the Snapdragon 850 processor with a built-in 4G LTE modem that supports data transfer at speeds up to 1 Gbit/s, allows you to stay online everywhere without being tied to Wi-Fi. The use of 4x4 MIMO reception technology with multiple antennas makes the connection to the mobile network more stable both indoors and outdoors. In addition, the device uses an independent Bluetooth antenna, so Bluetooth and Wi-Fi do not interfere with each other.
The computer is equipped with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 or 512 GB drive, depending on the version. Huawei used an 8-layer heat dissipation system to effectively cool the device and improve performance. According to the company, the built-in battery capacity of 36.3 W⋅h is enough for 10 hours of offline video playback in 1080p.
The new product supports Huawei Share proprietary technology for instant data exchange between the computer and the company's smartphones. The multimedia capabilities of the device are represented by two speakers and a dual amplifier SmartPA, which create a loud stereo sound when watching video.
Huawei MateBook E 2019 with a 256 GB drive will cost $595, and the 512 GB version will cost $744.
