After the new Matebook announced at MWC 2019, Huawei continues to expand its notebook portfolio with the Matebook E 2019, its first 2-in-1 based on Snapdragon 850 processor. The MateBook E 2019 is an “always-connected” fan-less with Windows 10 Home, support for 4G LTE (nano SIM) networks with 4×4 MIMO antennas, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, and dual-band Wi-Fi. In support of the Qualcomm processor, it has an 8GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of UFS storage.
The display is a 12-inch panel with a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels in a 3:2 ratio, a 160° viewing angle and an oleophobic coating that prevents the accumulation of fingerprints. The display is also TÜV Rheinland certified and supports the M Pen lite which is, however, sold separately.
For the camera, there’s a 13MP rear and a 5MP front that is useful for video calls. In a more safer condition, there’s a sensor for the recognition of fingerprints placed laterally.
The magnetic keyboard has a stand that allows you to adjust the inclination between 110° and 160° and also allows you to use the device in “curtain” mode to make the most of video content. The audio sector is entrusted to two stereo speakers with Smart PA and Dolby Atmos amplifiers. The battery is a 36.3Wh with up to 10 hours of multimedia playback with 50% backlight. With the fast charging system, you get just under 90% in an hour and a half.
As for the connection ports, finally, there is a USB Type-C to connect accessories and recharge the device and the 3.5 mm audio jack. There’s also Huawei Share 3.0 OneTouch feature that allows you to quickly transfer files from your computer to a compatible Huawei smartphone.
Matebook E 2019 will be available in two colors: Titanium Ash and Charm Blue Sea, with prices ranging between CNY 3999 (~P30,820) for the 256GB version and CNY 4999 for the 512GB (~P38,530) version with integrated memory. Availability on the Chinese market is already foreseen for today, while there is no information regarding international markets.
