Despite being a tablet, it is designed to be used with a keyboard. When we connect the device to the keyboard, Windows 11 goes into desktop mode, to take advantage of the 12.6-inch panel with OLED technology and high resolution that this MateBook mounts horizontally. Huawei promises a frontal utilization of 90%, quite a high figure.

A curious detail of the Huawei keyboard cover is that it incorporates an intelligent voice recognition button, that allows to transcribe voice to text and translate in real time English, Japanese and Korean (at the moment it supports these languages).

The tablet has a fan to dissipate heat, and its interior has been designed to be as efficient as possible at a thermal level, a consideration to consider considering the capabilities of your processor.

Finally, it should be noted that it has a 42 Wh battery, 65W fast charge, fingerprint reader on the side and Thunderbolt 4 connector. On the back it has a 13 megapixel camera and in the small upper frame there is an 8 megapixel camera.

Versions and price of the Huawei MateBook E

The Huawei MateBook E has been presented at a price of about $ 1,250. It remains to be seen if it ends up reaching the international market and how its price is in Europe.
