After having launched the new Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, Huawei is once again betting on the tablet industry with the new Huawei MatePad Pro, a high-end tablet with a 10.8-inch screen and the processor more powerful than it’s rivals. The device has a clean back that will be available in black, white, orange and blue.
In the central area we have the name of the brand and in the upper right corner the module that houses the only rear lens and the LED flash. The speakers have been placed on both sides and in terms of ports, it has USB Type-C, but not a headphone mini-jack.
Regarding the screen, Huawei has opted for a conventional IPS / LCD panel whose diagonal amounts to 10.8 inches. It has a 2K + resolution (2,560 x 1,080 pixels) and is stretched by considerably reducing the frames thanks, in part, to the perforation of the screen that hides the front camera.
Huawei has emphasized this point, presuming that the frames of the Huawei MatePad Pro are 4.3 mm, while those of the iPad Pro and the Galaxy Tab S6 are 8.3 and 8.5 mm, respectively.
Under the hood of this high-end tablet, we find the latest Huawei processor, the Kirin 990. It is the same SoC that we find in the new Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro and stands out for being manufactured in seven EUV nanometers and for its eight cores divided into three clusters (two high-performance, two medium-performance and four energy-saving).
It is accompanied by six or eight gigabytes of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of expandable internal storage with NM Card cards. Inside the Huawei MatePad Pro, we can also find a 7,250 mAh battery with 15W fast charge and, interestingly, wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
This, remember, serves to charge any compatible device by placing it on the tablet. It also has magnetic pins in the upper area to charge the M-Pen. Because yes, the Huawei MatePad Pro is compatible with M-Pen and, depending on the brand, charging it for 30 seconds using reverse wireless charging we can use it for 10 minutes.
The operating system is EMUI 10 based on Android 10, being the third device of the brand that is launched with the new version of its customization layer. The news of EMUI 10 we already know from its presentation, but it should be noted that it will be possible to connect a Mate 30 or Mate 30 Pro and play the mobile screen on the tablet, as well as receive calls or interact with the device.
The Huawei MatePad Pro has two sensors, one behind and one in front. The rear is 13 megapixels with f / 2.0 aperture and the front eight megapixels with f / 1.8 aperture. It is possible to record in 4K at 40 frames per second and, of course, the AI will be present to optimize the taking of photographs. It can be purchased in several versions of RAM and internal storage and the price at the exchange ranges between 425 and 580 euros at the exchange.
