During its Summer 2022 Smart Office launch event, Huawei unveiled its latest flagship tablet, the MatePad Pro 11.
The Huawei MatePad Pro 11 apparently has the bragging right of being the thinnest and lightest 11-inch tablet in the world as it is only 5.9mm thick and weighs 449g.
Huawei went all-out on this one, especially in the display department. It uses an OLED panel with a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. It is fast with a 120Hz refresh rate, 1,440Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, and good color calibration with delta E < 1.
Of course, the TUV Rheinland branding is also here. In fact, it is the first tablet to get a Full Care Display 3.0 certification.
As per the website, the MatePad Pro 11 will come in two processor options. There’s the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 model, while the other has a Snapdragon 870 CPU. Both are flagship chips, albeit from the last generation.
The chipset can be had with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage. The processor is mated to a 3D graphene and vapor chamber to keep it cool.
Like Huawei’s newer mobile products, the MatePad Pro 11 runs on the latest HarmonyOS 3.0 version. It offers tons of new features, especially those that take advantage of its large display: split-screen mode, floating app bubbles, a redesigned multitasking window, and more.
The battery has an 8,300mAh capacity that can last for up to 11.5 hours of online video watching. The Snapdragon 888 variant has support for 66W Huawei SuperCharge but only comes with a 40W adapter, while the 870 variant only has 40W and 22.5W, respectively.
Around the back, we have a circular glass for the dual cameras. A design language similar to the Huawei P50 and other flagship phones from the brand. It holds a 13-megapixel main shooter and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide. Meanwhile, a punch-hole on the corner of the screen holds a sharper 16-megapixel selfie camera, which makes more sense since you’d be spending more time on this device video calling.
Huawei also covered the audio department really well on this one. It has six speakers: two tweeters and four woofers.
The company also built a few high-end feature-packed accessories for this device. For one, there’s a magnetic smart keyboard that offers 1.5mm key travel, detachable for better positioning, a kickstand, and a built-in antenna that Huawei claims can improve the WiFi reception.
There’s also a special case for the M-Pen, which is Huawei’s own stylus that you can use for jotting down notes and or drawing.
The Huawei MatePad Pro 11 has a starting price of CNY3,299 (around Php27,100) for the 8GB/128GB model while the top-of-the-line model with the smart keyboard and M-Pencil retails for CNY7,699 (around Php63,200). Huawei confirms that it will be coming to the Philippines on September 9.
