- Huawei unveils two new devices at CES, one being a laptop and another being a tablet
- The MateBook 13 is set to be a MacBook Air-look-alike, while the MediaPad M5 Lite is just a tablet still with a headphone jack
The MateBook 13 is Huawei’s latest addition to its line of premium Windows laptops, with only 0.59-inch in thickness and weighing only 2.86 pounds, just like the latest MacBook Air.
Starting at $999 for the Core i5 variant with integrated graphics and an additional $300 for the Core i7 variant with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics, both configurations would have a 13-inch, 2160 x 1440 pixel display at 200ppi, as well as 8GB of RAM built-in, either 256 or 512GB of SSD storage and USB-C ports on either side.
There’s also a headphone jack for those who still use it, an integrated fingerprint sensor on the power button as well as a battery that promises up to 10 hours of video playback.
Aside from the MateBook 13, Huawei also unveils the MediaPad M5 Lite, their latest addition to its tablet line. Starting at $299, the tablet sports a 10.1-inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel touchscreen display with 3:2 aspect ratio, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage expandable via microSD card.
This also comes with a headphone jack (in case you don’t like the new iPad), four Harman Kardon-certified speakers on-board as well as a 7,500mAh battery which by Huawei’s estimates, could give you up to 13 hours of video playback.
According to Huawei, both devices should hit retail stores this month.
