Huawei might announce Matebook hybrid laptop at MWC

Vlad, 15 February, 2016

Huawei is holding a special event in Barcelona this coming Sunday, on February 21, as are many other companies. Yet it's still unclear what Huawei is going to announce on the eve of MWC.

That said, one possibility could be a hybrid laptop. With a stylus. This has been rumored before, and it will apparently be called Huawei Matebook. Richard Yu, the Chinese company's CEO, has published the invite you can see below on his Weibo account.

That stylus can't be part of the package for a high-end phablet, since the Mate 8 has been unveiled only around three months ago. So given the past mumblings about the Matebook having both a detachable touchscreen and a stylus, it would make most sense for it to be the product under the spotlight at MWC.

The Matebook will allegedly come with a 12.9-inch display, an Intel processor, Windows 10 on board, a focus on business customers (which once again fits well with the teaser above), and premium pricing.
