Huawei announced their new flagship tablet today with the introduction of the brand new Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6.
This tablet also launches with the new HarmonyOS 2. The specs for the tablet are both good and groundbreaking, as it’s the first tablet PC to feature 8 speakers, with Harman Kardon.
The 12.6-inch screen has an OLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and DCI-P3 wide color gamut.
It’s powered by the Kirin 9000E processor, with 8GB of RAM, and options 128GB or 256GB storage, as well as optional 5G.
Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6 also features rear triple cameras with a 13MP camera, an 8MP wide-angle camera, and a 3D sensing camera. While on the front it has an 8MP camera too.
Other high specs includes wireless charging and reverse wireless charging for the 10,050 mAh battery, GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, GALILEO, and QZSS sensors, Wi-Fi 6, 4 mics, and a 4096 pressure sensitive M-Pencil digitizer.
Huawei’s new OLED tablet also has a USB C 3.1 port, Bluetooth 5.2, a rear LED flash, and weighs 609 grams with a thickness of 6.7mm. The colors are green or grey. And obviously a tablet of this size has an optional keyboard too.
Apart from this list of great specs, it’s the HarmonyOS 2 that then makes this tablet really functional, by catering to the needs of people who like to get a lot of things done on a tablet. This includes easy shortcuts, mirroring of devices, collaboration modes, extended modes, cross-OS file transfer, split windows, multi windows, noise cancellation, and so on.
Unfortunately the Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6 won’t launch in the US any time soon of course, but it will launch in China in the middle of June for about $780.
