Huawei introduces the MateBook at Mobile World Congress 2016

Mobile World Congress has officially begun and the smell of new devices is in the air! Earlier today, LG announced their new flagship phone, the G5. Meanwhile Huawei had their own announcement. They announced the MateBook.

The MateBook is a 2-in-1 Windows 10 device that's "designed to meet the evolving demands of today's modern business users." The device uses Intel's sixth generation Core m-series chipsets.

The hybrid device promises to have a slim design and to be lightweight, coming in at just 640 g. To put that in perspective, that's 12 grams lighter than a Wi-Fi only fourth generation iPad.

The MateBook promises a screen to body ratio of 84%. The color gamut of the 1440p IPS display will be 85%, allowing for true to life colors.

Huawei also promises nine hours of work battery life, or 29 hours of music playback from the device. The battery will charge in two and a half hours.

The device will also support Windows Hello with a fingerprint scanner. Not only that, but the firm promises that it will be the fastest fingerprint scanner on the market.

The MateBook will come in the following configurations:
