Huawei yesterday announced the launch of the Huawei MatePad Pro 5G in the UAE. Entering the tablet space in the UAE after a while, the Huawei MatePad Pro 5G and MatePad have some great timing. In recent times, remote working and distance learning has picked up great pace, making a tablet possible quite an essential device.
The Huawei MatePad series is available for pre-orders in the UAE from 24th June starting from Dh1,099 with some special pre-order offers for early buyers.
The Huawei MatePad Pro combines a large display with ultra-narrow bezels to achieve the world’s highest tablet screen-to-body ratio at 90 per cent. The tablet is powered by the 7nm Kirin 990 flagship chipset and runs EMUI10. Thanks to this combination the Huawei MatePad Pro supports Multi-Window, Multi-screen Collaboration (with Huawei and Honor devices) and Huawei App Multiplier. It also supports the Huawei M-Pencil and Smart Magnetic Keyboard, giving users a more PC-like experience.
Huawei Share on the MatePad Pro enables Multi-screen Collaboration, which allows advanced cross-platform functionality between Huawei devices. Its also enables drag-and-drop file transfers between smartphones and tablets.
This solution also makes it possible for the user to pick up calls or respond to text messages directly from the tablet, facilitating a seamless multi-device experience. Additionally, users can change the way they do it all with the new APP Multiplier feature that splits one app instance into two windows, delivering a revolutionary dual-view experience that makes the most out of the landscape orientation. The size of the windows can be adjusted to fit the needs of the user by simply dragging the border.
The Huawei MatePad Pro 5G features the world’s highest tablet screen-to-body ratio, at 90 percent, with ultra-narrow 4.9mm bezels surrounding the 10.8-inch 16:10 display.
It comes with an IPS panel featuring a 2K QHD (2560×1600) resolution at a pixel density of 280ppi. Capable of fully displaying the DCI-P3 cinematic colour gamut at 540 nits brightness and 1500:1 contrast ratio, the QHD display offers a superior entertainment experience.
Huawei is offering an exclusive 3-month free VIP access of their Huawei Video service to MatePad Series users. It gives consumers the chance to enjoy thousands of hours of Arabic and global movies and series in an ever-increasing library. There are also millions of short clips to watch all tailored to the viewer’s needs.
Battery and Charging
The Huawei MatePad Pro 5G comes with a 7250mAh battery and the power-saving features integrated into Kirin 990 and EMUI. It comes with a 20W power adapter for speedy charging, and supports 40W Huawei SuperCharge.
The Huawei MatePad Pro 5G is also the world’s first tablet to support wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. That being said, right now it only supports reverse wireless charging with ‘Huawei labs-certified devices’.
For those who enjoy using a tablet with a stylus, the Huawei MatePad Pro 5G supports the use of the Huawei M-Pencil. With 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, tilt support and a tip made of a unique composite material, users can expect incredible accuracy, responsiveness and sensitivity from the M-Pencil.
Placing the M-Pencil on the top of the MatePad Pro 5G automatically initiates Bluetooth pairing and magnetic charging.
The MatePad Pro also supports the Huawei Smart Magnetic keyboard too.
Like on all new Huawei devices, there is no Google Mobile Services or GMS, thus no Google Play Store. That being said the Huawei AppGallery has been growing at a very rapid pace, especially here in the UAE.
So while users will definitely need to find work arounds to get their favourite apps on to the MatePad devices, the AppGallery itself will provide most of what users here in the UAE will need.
