We had some time with the HUAWEI MatePad Pro – a premium 10.8-inch tablet built around the Kirin 990 flagship platform.
Find out why we love its complete tablet experience so much, we gave it our Reviewer’s Choice Award!
HUAWEI MatePad Pro : 10.8-inch Flagship Tablet
The HUAWEI MatePad Pro (US | UK | MY | SG | AU) is a flagship tablet with a 10.8-inch display. It uses an LCD panel, with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and a wide DCI-P3 colour gamut.
Built around the HUAWEI Kirin 990 flagship mobile platform, it features fast CPU and GPU cores and two neural processing cores.
HUAWEI is offering it in 5G, 4G and Wi-Fi variants, with 6 GB or 8 GB memory options, and storage options of 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB.
Our review sample is the Wi-Fi only model (MRX-W09), with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage. Here is our hands-on experience!
Holding the MatePad Pro vertically, on the left side, you will find its SIM / NM card tray.
In 5G / 4G models, the tray accepts either two nano SIM cards, or one nano SIM card and an NM card.
In Wi-Fi only models like this one – the tray only accepts a single NM card.
The Volume control buttons are located at the top of the right side, near the front and rear cameras.
Next to it is another one of the five microphones that are used to help you record better audio with noise cancellation.
The Power button is located at the top, near the Volume control buttons on the right side. You will also see two rows of speaker ports at the top.
The HUAWEI MatePad Pro actually has a Harman Kardon-tuned quad-speaker system. The other two speakers are located at the bottom, flanking its USB Type C port.
HUAWEI MatePad Pro : A Complete Package
The HUAWEI MatePad Pro (US | UK | MY | SG | AU) can be purchased as a tablet alone. But HUAWEI offers a bundle (Midnight Grey | Pearl White) which includes the Smart Magnetic Keyboard and M-pencil.
The Smart Magnetic Keyboard doubles as a case, and offers two stand angles, and a keyboard with 1.3 mm keystroke travel.
The HUAWEI M-pencil is a full-sized stylus with a built-in battery, that lets you writer and draw directly on the MatePad Pro with 4,096 pressure levels.
Both accessories lock magnetically to, and is powered by the MatePad Pro. The M-pencil can also be recharged by any device that supports the Qi wireless charging standard.
This nice bundle (Midnight Grey | Pearl White) gives you a complete tablet experience, right out of the box.
