The tablet market is on the rise, thanks to the excellent performance of the latest models on the market, especially those that are positioned in the high-end range, such as the latest version of the tablet. MatePad Pro from Huawei a product suitable for both the professional sector that works in mobility and the domestic sector. It is a device for those who are looking for more features than those provided by a mobile phone, but do not strictly need a laptop. A good example of this trend is the MatePad Pro, which in addition to technical values provides attractive design and outstanding performance.
The 12.6-inch MatePad Pro is the brand’s latest tablet to hit our market. Powered by the HarmonyOS 2 system, it manages an organized desktop through the Bottom Dock and Service Widgets, which generate new ways to view information efficiently. Using distributed technology, the device can take advantage of the capabilities of other terminals – from smartphones or PCs, even smart TVs – to form a super device that can support a variety of uses.
It is equipped with the processor Kirin 9000E, which offers one of the best performance and speed of the moment, a 12.6-inch OLED FullView screen and 2.5K resolution, with a screen-to-body ratio of 90%, contrast ratio of 1,000,000: 1, support for gamut DCI-P3 color monitor and color accuracy comparable to some professional monitors. It is compatible with WiFi 6 connectivity standard. It integrates a 1050 mAh battery with wireless charging and a system of fast charge to fill in just 45 minutes.
Taking advantage of the recording possibilities of the 13 MP rear camera, which records in 4K quality, the device is configured as a good tool for editing videos or images without latency or crashing problems. For its part, the improved App Multiplier and Multi-Window functions make multitasking more fluid. For the sake of productivity, the brand has also developed the M-Pencil (2nd generation), which offers smart and natural interactive experiences.
Large 12.6-inch OLED display
It has a 12.6-inch OLED FullView display, a 16: 9 aspect ratio, and narrow bezels that measure 5.6mm thick, offering a 90% screen-to-body ratio. The panel also supports a million-to-one contrast ratio as well as the DCI-P3 color gamut, making it possible to reproduce sharp, lifelike images. It should be noted that it has a color accuracy index that only some professional category monitors reach, which makes it practically a portable monitor. It integrates a hardware solution that filters blue light, for which it has received the TÜV Rheinland Full Care Display 2.0 certification.
This screen is complemented by a sound system consisting of eight Harman Kardon speakers, which adds tweeters y woofers.
HarmonyOS 2 to boost productivity
MatePad Pro introduces a new bottom Dock that shows the most used and recently used applications. The Information Widgets can show updated data in real time and allow access to certain functions of the applications without having to start them. These widgets can be placed anywhere, and are configurable to customize the device.
As a consequence of the distributed capabilities of HarmonyOS 2, the tablet supports Multi-screen Collaboration capabilities: Mirror Mode, Extension Mode and Collaboration Mode with the brand’s MateBook laptops. In Mirror Mode the screen of the connected computer is mirrored on that of the tablet, allowing you to edit documents directly, or draw on the PC with M-Pencil (2nd generation). The iMode Collaboration facilitates cross-platform interaction between HarmonyOS 2 and Windows, to transfer content such as text, images and documents between connected devices with a drag and drop.
Introduced for the first time in 2019, the first version of the Multiplier App allowed tablet applications to take better advantage of horizontal orientation and display information with two active windows at the same time. With the launch of MatePad Pro, the Multiplier App brings more possibilities to take advantage of horizontal displays.
For its part, the M-Pencil (2nd generation) offers a natural writing experience similar to that of a pencil on the tablet with the new platinum-coated pen, low latency and support for 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Inspired by the design on the back of the luxury watch case, the transparent pencil tip shows the inner workings of the pencil, and comes with a frosted texture. It supports interaction features such as FreeScript, which transform handwritten content into machine-encoded text in real time, as well as double tap to change, Instant Shape, Instant Table, and more.
Developed by Huawei, the Pencil Engine is open to all developers and handles a set of features, such as stroke prediction and brush effects, that can be integrated for more natural drawing and handwriting experiences in third-party applications.
The smart magnetic keyboard features 1.3mm key travel. It supports Bluetooth and wireless charging.
