Huawei Mate Book launched

Chinese manufacturer, Huawei, may not be the biggest name on the market at the moment, but today's launch of the Mate Book, a stylus-controlled, pressure sensitive tabelt, proves it soon will be.

The new tablet runs the Windows 10 operating system, and can connect to a keyboard creating a laptop-esque user experience. It also comes with a stylus, which "once charged, will last once month" tells Richard Yu, CEO at Huawei.

At just 6.9mm thin and weighing 640g, the Mate Book will be a breeze to carry round, easily slipping in a bag. The display measures 12-inches, while boasting a massive 84% screen-to-body ratio. There's also a huge 4,430mAh battery on board, ensuring you won't be left without charge if you're away from a plug socket for more than a day.

A one-touch fingerprint sensor on the right hand side of the tablet means that starting it up is incredibly quick, doing away with the need for lock screen and passwords.
