Already this year, Huawei excited us with the premierea flagship phone with excellent camera setup, but the company is not finished yet, and a wide variety of computing devices will be on display at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
The range includes the MateBook X Pro laptop, MateBook E convertible tablet, MateStation X all-in-one desktop and MatePad Paper tablet.
Starting with the MateBook X Pro, this laptop is the company’s most powerful laptop, featuring the latest Intel Core i7 processor and an enhanced cooling system that Huawei says provides 60% better airflow. This should allow this processor to perform at its maximum for more demanding tasks like video or photo editing while keeping it cool.
The laptop itself has an all-metal construction, a touchscreen display with a resolution of 3120 x 2080 pixels, a webcam in the top edge, and a 90W fast charge. Huawei says that after a 15-minute charge, you will be able to reach three hours of use. There is also a charger in the box.
Then the MateBook E convertible tablet, which is best seen as an alternative to Microsoft’s Surface Tablet. The design is similar, with a slim 7.9mm body and a 12.6-inch OLED display. Huawei claims the display has a 1 million: 1 contrast ratio with high color accuracy, which should make it attractive to photographers and other creative professionals looking to show their work at its best.
It includes 11th Gen Intel Core processors and Windows 11 which offers various gesture optimizations for people using the software in tablet mode. However, there is a magnetic keyboard as well as a glide keyboard that doubles as a handy stand and has its own USB-C charging port.
For those looking to have a larger office PC, the MateStation X may be more attractive. This all-in-one desktop computer offers a 28.2-inch, 3840 x 2560-pixel touchscreen display with an elegant thin bezel around the edge. It is mounted on a hinge that should allow it to be moved to more comfortable working positions, especially if you are doing creative work with the Huawei M Pencil.
It has an all-metal construction, three speakers made by the French audio company Devialet, and runs on AMD Ryzen 5000H processors, as well as 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of memory.
Finally, we have the quirky MatePad Paper, a 10.3-inch tablet that uses an E Ink screen – the kind you might know better on a Kindle reader. It is designed as an e-book reader and notepad type (supports handwriting with the Huawei M Pencil) and can be a useful tool for taking quick notes during meetings.
Converts handwritten notes into text, has a voice memo feature, and allows you to easily annotate PDFs and other documents.
At the time of writing this article, no pricing has been provided for any of the devices, but we will update it with more information as they become available.
