Huawei has announced the Huawei MateBook E (2019), a two-in-one transformable notebook that’s armed with a 12-inch touchscreen, a Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 850 CPU, 8GB of RAM, 256/512GB of internal storage and Windows 10 Home.
The pièce de résistance is, however, the MateBook E (2019)’s support for 4G LTE in the form of a nano-SIM, which lets users stay connected to the Internet at all times, irrespective of whether there’s an accessible Wi-Fi network nearby.
There’s also an integrated kickstand, which can be mounted between 110- and 160-degrees, and can be assembled into what Huawei’s calling Tent for comfortable viewing when resting the device on a flat surface for media consumption.
And that’s something you’ll be doing a lot seeing as the Huawei MateBook E (2019) has a massive 36.3W cell that’s capable of running for ten consecutive hours at 50% brightness, and can be charged from flat to 88% in a mere hour and a half.
The Huawei MateBook E (2019) is available in China, where it’s available in two colors — Charm Blue Sea and Titanium Ash — with pricing starting at ¥3999 (~$595) for the 256GB model and ¥4999 (~$744) for the flagship 512GB variant.
There’s no word on whether it will launch in other regions.
