The other pro tablet unveiled by Huawei today, is the smaller Huawei MatePad Pro 10.8.
And Huawei just like Apple, have decided to make the largest model the flagship, while making the smaller version a slightly toned down version that’s a notch cheaper too.
But the Huawei MatePad Pro 10.8 is still a well equipped tablet computer.
It features a 10.8.inch LCD screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600, while it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, with 8GB of RAM, and 128GB or 256GB storage options.
It runs the HarmonyOS 2 operating system, and features an 8MP front camera, a 13MP rear camera with flash, 7250 mAh battery, Wi-Fi 6, BT 5.1, GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, GALILEO, and QZSS sensors, quad speakers, five mics, and a USB C 3.0 port.
The front camera is a hole-punch camera, so that will put some people off the tablet altogether. But other than that, it has the benefit of supporting an optional keyboard cover and the M-Pencil digitizer.
The weight of the tablet is 460 grams with a thickness of 7.2mm. Huawei MatePad Pro 10.8 will launch in China next week from $589.
