HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G : Everything You Need To Know!
If you read our review of the HUAWEI MatePad Pro, you will know that we were so impressed with its performance and value proposition, we gave it our Reviewer’s Choice Award.
HUAWEI has just upped the ante by introducing a 5G variant, called, obviously enough – the MatePad Pro 5G.
Kirin 990 5G Mobile Platform
The main difference is its processor – it uses the HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G mobile SoC, which has a built-in Balong 5G modem.
This is a multi-mode modem that lets the MatePad Pro connect to 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G networks.
In addition, the Kirin 990 5G is faster than the non-5G variant, with an additional NPU :
- two ARM Cortex-A76 high-performance cores at 2.86 GHz
- two ARM Cortex-A76 sustained performance cores at 2.36 GHz (2.09 GHz for Kirin 990)
- four ARM Cortex-A55 low-power cores at 1.95 GHz (1.86 GHz for Kirin 990)
- two Big Core NPUs + one Tiny Core NPU (1 Big + 1 Tiny for Kirin 990)
3D Graphene Cooling System
To keep the Kirin 990 5G cool, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G features the industry’s first ultra-thick 3D graphene cooling system.
This cooling system is enhanced by AI thermal management, to help keep the tablet cool during scenarios that generate large amounts of heat – downloading on 5G, wireless / reverse wireless charging.
Faster Charging + Wireless Reverse Charging
The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G supports 40 watt fast charging – twice as fast as 20 watts fast charging supported regular MatePad Pro tablets.
It also supports 27 watt wireless charging – almost twice as fast as 15 watts wireless charging supported by regular MatePad Pro tablets.
