New Huawei MatePad Pro Has a Kirin 9000E Chipset, 12.6-Inch OLED Display

If you've been looking for a new tablet, then you might want to check out the new Huawei MatePad Pro, which will launch right before the upcoming 10.10 sale. It has a cutting-edge Kirin 9000E chipset and a 12.6-inch OLED FullView display. You can get the device in two display sizes: 10.8 inches and 12.6 inches, with the former model already available as of August 2021 and the latter to be rolled out in Singapore starting 9 October 2021.

Shipping with a 12.6-inch OLED FullView display and a new operating system, the Huawei MatePadPro provides a bunch of creativity and productivity features. With a 16:10 aspect ratio and bezels that are just 5.6mm thin, the display boasts a 90% screen-to-body ratio. It also supports a high contrast ratio of a million-to-one and the DCI-P3 colour gamut, consequently letting the screen show more true-to-life colours.

Aside from that, the Huawei MatePad Pro can serve as a portable second monitor for professional photographers as it has a Delta E colour accuracy rating of less than 0.5, a level of accuracy that only some professional-grade monitors have achieved.

If you don't like the eye strain that usually comes with using a device, then you might be glad to hear that the Huawei MatePad Pro has a hardware-level low blue light eye protection solution, making it the world's first tablet to get TÜV Rheinland Full Care Display 2.0 certification.

You can also expect a 10,050mAh battery and support for 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge, allowing for the tablet to be fully charged in only two hours and ten minutes as well as wireless and reverse wireless charging capabilities. After a 60-minute charge, the tablet can achieve a battery life of 4.5 hours. This is great for users who need to charge their devices in a short period of time.

Aside from that, you can take advantage of the device's cameras. Its rear camera module is made up of a 13MP main, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 3D ToF sensor, letting you take pictures with an image resolution of up to 4160 x 3120 pixels and clips with a video resolution of up to 3840 x 2160 pixels. There is also an 8MP selfie camera.

Thanks to the energy-efficient performance of the Kirin 9000E and the power-saving technology of HarmonyOS 2, the tablet can provide up to 14 hours of continuous local 1080p HD video playback, nine hours of web browsing supported on a single charge and stay on standby for up to 17 days.

When it comes to the chipset, the advanced 5nm Kirin 9000E 5G SoC can carry out multitasking, process large amounts of data and power real-time AI computing without difficulty. Aside from power efficiency, the octa-core CPU is designed for better performance with a clock speed of 3.13GHz and a three-level architecture. Meanwhile, the 22-core Mali-G78 GPU boasts improved image processing that makes an immersive mobile gaming experience possible.

For users who love listening to music and watching TV shows or movies, they can enjoy an immersive multimedia experience with the tablet's eight-speaker sound system, which is tuned by Harman Kardon and includes large-amplitude tweeters and woofers.

When it comes to the tablet's operating system, HarmonyOS 2 has additions like a Bottom Dock that shows users frequently used and recently used apps. Similarly, there are new Service Widgets that can display real-time information and let users access specific app features without the need to open the apps. You can customise these widgets and place them anywhere on your screen.

Harnessing the many capabilities of HarmonyOS 2, the new Huawei MatePad Pro supports new Tablet-PC Multi-screen Collaboration capabilities: Mirror Mode, Extend Mode and Collaborate Mode. When you use Mirror Mode, the screen of the connected PC is mirrored to the tablet display, letting you directly interact with documents or draw on the PC with the second-generation Huawei M-Pencil and the Huawei MatePad Pro.

Meanwhile, Extend Mode turns the tablet into a second screen, which is great if you want to get extra screen space for checking work materials or browsing the web. The Collaborate Mode allows for cross-platform interactions between HarmonyOS 2 and Windows, letting you transfer content like text, images and documents between connected devices by dragging and dropping it.

There is only one colour and storage option for the device as it will only be available in Matte Grey and with 256GB of storage.
