When Huawei announce the new flagship tablets of theirs this week, the Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6 and the Huawei MatePad Pro 10.8, they also quietly published the details for another tablet in Germany, but without any global announcement.
This tablet is the brand new Huawei MatePad 11, a cheaper kind of high-specs tablet that will launch for €399 in Germany this summer.
The Huawei MatePad 11 specs are good for the price. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 64GB of storage, or 128GB of storage for €100 more.
The 11-inch screen also sports a 2560 x 1600 resolution display at 120 Hz, with other goodies such as quad speakers, quad mics, a 13MP rear camera, an 8 MP front camera, Wi-Fi 6, and a 7250 mAh battery that’s good for a 12 hour average use.
For productivity uses, it’s compatible with the 4096 pressure level sensitive M-Pencil, as well as a keyboard cover.
The thickness of the tablet is 7.25mm, and the weight is 485 grams.
So in terms of specs, the value is very good. The real question is only around the HarmonyOS 2, and if a potential buyer will be persuaded enough by this operating system.
