You’ve got to love the executives of Chinese companies, as they just love sharing little tit bits and teasers on Weibo. There are no particular losers when they decide to do so, consumers are hyped and the organisation gets free publicity once tech media sites pick up the story.
We’re just grasping at straws here though Huawei’s exec Richard Yu did post an image of a stylus – accompanied by a device that’ll be shown at launch – with the words “The new style of business” and the product launch schedule included.
The grapevines surrounding Huawei’s HQ has long gone about a rumoured hybrid laptop that’s has been in the works. This particular device is dubbed simply as the Matebook. A term that was supposedly trademarked by Huawei themselves awhile back.
Given the fact, it doesn’t take a genius to implore the notion that Huawei might be making a fully-fledged computing device.
It seems too soon for Huawei to out another phablet as the Mate 8 has just been announced late last year so our money is on this alleged detachable tablet to make its grand appearance at the mobile-focused exhibition show.
Adding a hybrid laptop to their repertoire would boost the brand to another level but they’ll be entering a market space that has veterans ready to pounce. It is claimed that the Matebook will arrive with a 12.9-inch detachable screen and feature a productivity-ready Windows 10 operating system.
We’ll be sure to keep tabs on Huawei’s announcements throughout MWC 2016. Do share with us your thoughts in the comments below.
