Another official leak for the Huawei MateBook 2 surfaced today after it was registered as Bluetooth certified today, making the leaks official the second time after it was Wi-Fi certified on February 24th.
The original Huawei MateBook is a 12-inch Windows 2-in-1 tablet with 2160 x 1440 resolution, 6th gen. Intel Core m3, m5, m7 processor choices, 4GB to 8GB RAM, and 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options, all wrapped in a thin tablet of just 6.9 mm.
It looks like the Huawei MateBook 2 that leaked today will be an upgrade version of that, with the latest 7th gen. Intel Core processor instead, since all the 16 iterations of the Huawei MateBook 2 that was certified today, have model numbers that replaces the model numbers of the first generation model. It was certified with Bluetooth 4.1.
But two larger Huawei MateBooks have been reported too. In October 2016 it was reported that Huawei may launch a 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch Huawei MateBook too.
Huawei MateBook was unveiled at MWC in 2016, and launched in the US between June and July, so we should expect the new Huawei MateBook 2 to launch during the next couple of months, in time to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Book 12.
Until then, the 1st gen. Huawei MateBook is often on sale with extreme discounts. I’ve seen the price cut to just 30% of the original launch price on the Intel Core m5/8GB RAM/512GB model, so that in only costs $399 on a good day.
