On June 20, at the World Trade Center in New York City, Huawei, a Chinese multinational networking and telecommunications company, has recently unveiled "MateBook."

The company also announced that the first ever 2-in-1 tablet PC that runs full Windows 10 Signature Edition is already available for pre-order and will arrive in the market on July 11 with a price that ranges from $699 to $1,199, HNGN reported.

Upon the U.S. release of Huawei's "MateBook," the convertible laptop runs on Intel's Core m-series processors with versions - Core m3, m5, and m7, NEO WIN reported.

The Chinese tech giant aimed at making a noticeable effect on the saturated United States market. Despite Huawei is the third largest smartphone manufacturer and fifth biggest seller of tablets globally, the product lineup of the Chinese company is still largely unknown in the U.S.

In the official press release of Huawei, the Vice President of Marketing - Yanyan Ji, said that since the launching of Huawei "MateBook" at Mobile World Congress, the device has resulted in an incredible excitement and enticed an extremely enthusiastic recommendation from technology enthusiasts around the globe.

The Vice President of Marketing also said that the "MateBook"  is a combination of a tablet and laptop, and it will showcase the type of premium experience Huawei customers expect.

"MateBook" will have a distinctive attribute of a 2160 x 1440 resolution 12-inch touchscreen and with a viewing angles of 160 degrees. The "MateBook" is quickly charged due to its high-density lithium-ion battery, which provide a sufficient amount of power for up to nine hours of work. The ultra-fast fingerprint sensor also featured in the upcoming device, Yibada reported.

The Core M3 model of Huawei "MateBook" with 4 gigabytes of RAM and 128 gigabytes of storage will cost $699. While the Core M5 processor, 8 gigabytes of RAM and 512 gigabytes of storage will cost about $1,199, The Verge reported.
