Huawei has just released its 2019-launched, 10.8-inch, 5 G version of Huawei MatePad Pro dubbed the MatePad Pro 5G. Although the new tablet is based on the version that was released earlier, it comes with a few unique features up its sleeve.
Display and Design
The laptop looks a lot like the latest generation of Apple iPad Pro in terms of design; however, the MatePad Pro 5 G has slimmer bezels. It is built around a 10.8-inch display with a resolution of 2560x 1600 pixels, the pixel density of 280ppi and aspect ratio of 16:10. Besides this, the show comes with DCI-P3 color gamut support. The tablet is available in a special Vegan Leather Version, brown, green.
Storage and Internals
The Huawei MatePad Pro 5 G is powered internally by the Kirin 990 5 G chipset, which is based on a more advanced 7nm+ EUV process and comes with an integrated 5 G modem. The chipset is supported by 6 GB or 8 GB of onboard storage and 256 GB or 512 GB of RAM.
The tablet comes along with a range of developments on the tech front. A highlight is the integrated 5 G modem which supports split-screen with two apps running side by side. Currently, 3,000 + apps support this feature, thanks to the developers ‘ Open UIKit from Huawei.
Other than this, the MatePad Pro 5 G also supports EMUI compliant screen mirroring. Previously this feature was seen in the MateBook laptops.
It comes with two fittings, i.e. the keyboard and stylus. Unlike iPad Pro, when connected to the edge, Huawei’s tablet will charge the stylus too.
The tablet also features quad speakers as well as four far-field mics alongside the rear camera and an additional noise-canceling mic.
In terms of cameras, the Huawei MatePad Pro 5 G offers nothing special. It comes with a 13 MP single sensor camera at the back and is equipped with an 8 MP selfies sensor at the front.
Pricing and Battery
The tablet features a 7250 mAh battery that supports faster wireless charging than the 4 G variant, i.e., 27W up from 15W. Other than this, 40W wired charging supports the device and also supports reverse charging to act as a power bank.
The tablet is set for sale in Europe by April. The details regarding prices are as follows:
