Huawei MateBook E Specifications and Features
In terms of its appearance, the MateBook E looks like a tablet that can be connected to an external keyboard and already supports a stylus.
For the screen, the Huawei MateBook E has a 12.6-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 with an aspect ratio of 16:10 and has fairly thin bezels.
Meanwhile, there is 16GB of RAM and a PCIe SSD of up to 512GB. Huawei also presents another variant with an Intel Core i5 11th Gen processor with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.
Because it uses an Intel processor, Huawei can also embed the Windows 11 operating system into the MateBook E. When a user connects the device to the keyboard, Windows 11 will automatically detect the keyboard and change from tablet mode to laptop mode.
Talking about the stylus, Huawei also announced that the MateBook E will also be equipped with the second generation Huawei M-Pencil which was previously available for its MatePad tablet.
There is also a 13MP camera on the back and 8MP on the front and a 42Wh battery that can last 5-8 hours depending on usage. Oh yes, there is also a 65W fast charging technology using a USB-C port that can charge from 0-100% in 90 minutes.
