February 28th, 2016 | by Z. Gonzales

Huawei’s big announcement at Mobile World Congress this year wasn’t about a fancy smartphone but rather to a 2-in-1 device which could give the Microsoft Surface 4 a run for its money.

The Huawei MateBook has a 12-inch display and rocks Intel’s new Core M processors. The device can be configured to have up to 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB SSD storage.

The 12-inch display has a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels (that’s around 216ppi) and is constructed from glass and metal. Powering the device is a 4430mAh battery which the company claims can last up to 10 hours on light to moderate use.

Huawei is marketing the MateBook as a productivity powerhouse even offering a couple of accessories including a stylus called the MatePen and a keyboard called the MateDock.
