Huawei launch new HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6-inch, available 10 June 2021

Huawei not only announced the Huawei Watch 3 and it’s latest Huawei Freebuds 4, but also announced the Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6-inch last week.

The new tablet desktop is said to be more organized as it now features the new Bottom Dock and Service Widgets which will provide new ways for users to view important information more efficiently.

It features a 12.6-inch OLED FullView display, which comes with a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, a million-to-one contrast ratio, support for the DCI-P3 wide colour gamut and colour accuracy rivalling that of some professional monitors.

Also included is eight-speaker sound system, which consists of large-amplitude tweeters and woofers.

Huawei will use its new HarmonyOS 2 in the MatePad Pro and this allows it to come with new and improved App Multiplier and Multi-Window features which Huawei claims will make multi-tasking more seamless than ever.

Aside from that, the MatePad Pro 12.6-inch is the world’s first tablet to pass the range of rigorous tests and receive TÜV Rheinland Full Care Display 2.0 certification, but I don’t think you can just purposely drop it to prove its durability.

Briefly, the specifications of the MediaPad Pro 12.6-inch are as follows:

  • CPU: Huawei Kirin 9000E
  • GPU Model: 22-core Mali-G78
  • Screen: 12.6-inch OLED FullView display
  • Memory: 256GB ROM + 8GB RAM

There’s also a the smaller Huawei MediaPad Pro 10.8-inch announced that same day.

Aside from the size, it has a different processor, using the Snapdragon 870, and uses an IPS LCD screen that refreshes at 120Hz for its display.

To get the full use from the tabet, Huawei highly recommends that you add in the Huawei M-Pencil (2nd generation) alongside the HUAWEI Smart Magnetic Keyboard.

The second generation M-Pencil is said to offer smarter and more natural interactive experiences when used with the MediaPad Pro while the keyboard is a full-sized Bluetooth keyboard that features a key travel of 1.3mm.

This is said to deliver satisfying typing experiences.
