Huawei announced the Huawei MatePad 10.4 2022 this week, but beyond the new model number, the specs are mostly the same as on the predecessor, although we are introduced to some new colors.
Huawei MatePad 10.4 2022 is powered by the Kirin 710A chipset in the Wi-Fi version and the 778G chipset in the 4G version. They all have 6GB RAM, but the storage options are between 64GB or 128GB storage.
The 10.4-inch screen has a Full HD resolution of 2000 x 1200, with stylus pen support for Huawei’s M Pencil.
The operating system is the increasingly expansive HarmonyOS 2.
On the media side, it’s well equipped for a tablet in this category, as it features both quad Harman Kardon speakers, three mics, an 8MP front camera, and a 13MP rear camera. And these are the good Huawei cameras too.
Battery capacity is just over 10 hours, coming from a 7250 mAh battery pack with 2.25A power input support.
There’s Wi-Fi 5 on the Wi-Fi model and Wi-Fi 6 on the 4G model.
Other than that we’re looking at Bluetooth 5.1, a USB C port, and navigation sensors.
The weight of the 2022 model 10.4-inch Huawei MatePad is 450 grams and it’s just 7.35mm thick.
Optional accessories other than the pen, also includes the slim keyboard cover.
Huawei will launch the 2022 MatePad 10.4 in China on March 26 starting at a price of about $270 for the 64GB model.
So despite the dimensions of this tablet, that still puts it in a price range above the 10.5-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A8.
