The upcoming Huawei MatePad isn’t the only tablet the Chinese manufacturer has planned for release soon. The render for a second and smaller tablet called the MatePad T has been leaked. The said tablet was also certified a few days ago by the Wi-Fi alliance.
The MatePad T is an 8-inch tablet with pretty thick bezels, unlike those of its siblings – the MatePad and the MatePad Pro. It has a single rear camera that protrudes, and its charging port appears to be positioned on the right side at the bottom. The render of the tablet was posted by Evan Blass (@evleaks), and it shows it will come in Navy Blue. There should be other color variants when it launches.
The Wi-Fi alliance certified the tablet on Wednesday, April 8, and the certificate reveals the tablet has the model number KOB2-W09. It also supports dual-band Wi-Fi and runs EMUI 10.
A lot of the tablet’s specs are still unknown, but it should be less powerful than the MatePad, which has been confirmed to have a Kirin 810 chipset. It should also be pretty affordable.
There is no info on when Huawei will announce the MatePad and the MatePad T, but it should not be far off.
Despite the fact that the market of the tablet is not growing, some manufacturers firmly believe in this sector. Currently, the only company that manages to maintain a good level in this area is Apple, especially with the series iPad Pro. Beyond this brand, however, others are trying to stay afloat, including also Huawei. It seems, in fact, that this company wants to try to occupy also the low end of the market, with MatePad T.
In the past few hours, speculation has circulated about a new one tablet registered by Huawei. It should be an issue low-cost, with display close to 8″ and a not too pushed hardware. Obviously, in this case, the indiscretion would come from the well-known leaker Evleaks, which also showed a first image of the product. Taking a look at this render, it seems obvious that the frames have not been optimized and that there is a back photographic form, of which we still do not know any characteristics.
