Huawei and Samsung are the only two big-name manufacturers still churning out tablets. Just as Samsung is planning to release a lite version of its Galaxy Tab S6, Huawei is also planning to launch a less powerful version of its MatePad Pro tablet. A poster of the Huawei tablet, which is simply called the “Huawei MatePad,” has surfaced on the web, and it confirms some of the already leaked specs.
The image of the poster appears to have been taken in front of a store, and it shows the Huawei MatePad will come in two color variants – white and gray. The tablet has bezels that are significantly slimmer than those of several other tablets. However, it skips the punch-hole display of the MatePad Pro. The Huawei MatePad is also shown to have stylus-support.
According to the image, the MatePad has a 2K display, a Kirin 810 processor, and exclusive educational features, hinting at Huawei’s target demographic for the new tablet being students.
Previous reports said the tablet will have a 10.4-inch display and will come in WiFi and 4G models with up to 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It will also come with a 7250mAh battery with a USB Type-C port for charging. Other features are 8MP rear and front cameras, Bluetooth 5.1, and an alleged “Lite version” of EMUI 10.1 based on Android 10.
The teaser video posted by Huawei few days back confirmed all the previous leaks, including a dual-camera setup at the back, a punch hole on the top left corner of the displays to nest the front camera, and as well support for input making use of th company’s M-Pen stylus. However, now, the review confirms the presence of the HiSilicon Kirin 990 SoC with up to 8GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage memory. Additionally, the review also reveals some information and about the new M-Pen stylus.
