Huawei's Harmony appeared on MatePad tablets

In addition to the 11-inch MatePad, Huawei also released three new MatePad tablets, the 12.6-inch and 10.8-inch MatePad Pro.

These are the company's first tablets to run on the Hongmeng operating system. They also use Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipset instead of the Kirin processor that Huawei developed in previous devices.

These tablets illustrate the challenges facing the Chinese tech giant.

Huawei is trying to get rid of Android restrictions which are dominated by Google apps and services outside of China which were previously unable to install these apps and services on their phones.

The 10.8-inch MatePad Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 870 processor and the 10.95-inch MatePad 11 is powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor.

Meanwhile, the 12.6-inch MatePad Pro is still powered by Huawei's own Kirin 9000E processor and Huawei has shared most of the information.

Huawei AppGallery offers more and more original apps and solutions. However, we are still far from installing the suite of Google apps and services across the entire device.

Since the investigation found that it is an open source version of Android, the Harmony system is facing major problems.

The new Huawei tablet:

There is a new FreeNote feature that allows you to use the M-Pencil to enter and display your handwriting in the dialog and automatically convert it into typed text. The tablet's home screen now contains the dock with the most frequently used apps.

The 12.6-inch MatePad Pro webcam is integrated into the frame on the long side of the screen. Therefore, unlike the iPad Pro, it is very suitable for teleconferencing in landscape format.

It also has an OLED display with a resolution of 1600 x 2560 pixels, and the Apple line still uses LCD panels of various shapes.

Huawei's screen mirroring technology is also making a comeback with the new MatePad Pro.

Previously you could mirror your smartphone screen through a tablet, now you can mirror and interact with your tablet screen on a compatible Huawei laptop.

The 12.6-inch MatePad Pro is equipped with a 1,050mAh battery that can play 14 hours of video on a single charge.

It can be charged with a cable of up to 40 watts and can be charged with a power of 27 watts wirelessly. It also offers 10W reverse wireless charging.

The tablet has three rear cameras, four microphones, eight speakers, and Wi-Fi 6 compatibility.

In addition to the new tablet, Huawei also launched the second generation of the M-Pencil stylus.

The new pen is more precise with a 9ms delay and also has a clear platinum-coated tip.

The new 12.6-inch MatePad Pros cost €799 in Europe. The general price of the MatePad 11 in Europe is 399 euros.
