It promises up to 11 hours of web browsing, up to 13 hours of video playback, or up to 15 hours of normal work use in a single charge.


Other features include Huawei Share, in which you’ll be easily able to seamlessly transfer files from your phone to your notebook and vice-versa, and even control your phone with the notebook using multi-screen collaboration.
