So far, Apple's iPad Pro has not really had a suitable challenger. But with the release of Huawei MatePad Pro 5G, Huawei has equipped this computer with some very interesting things, let's take a look.
The world's highest screen-to-body ratio
The new MatePad Pro 5G looks and feels like an advanced tablet. It is slim, only 7.2 mm thick and weighs only 460 grams, which is very lightweight. The vegan leather version is slightly heavier, weighing 492 grams. These high-end specifications together constitute a powerful tablet. During the short period of using MatePad Pro 5G, I found it very comfortable.
Huawei used a so-called micro-curved design on the MatePad Pro 5G to ensure a comfortable grip.
The screen ratio is also impressive, reaching 90%. In contrast, the small bezel of the iPad Pro has attracted people's attention, with a ratio of 84.6%. Therefore, if you are after ultra-thin bezels, then Huawei is the winner. On the new MatePad Pro, their size is only 4.9mm.
In view of all the functions of the tablet, the display has become everything, and Huawei calls it a FullView display because of its high screen-to-body ratio. This is a 10.8-inch 2K QHD with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 (280ppi). It also supports DCI-P3 film color gamut, and the screen is 16:10.
The display itself is bright and beautiful. The clarity of the display left a deep impression on me. However, the gap between it and its competitors is not large. Apple's Liquid Retina display is famous for some reason. Huawei can claim to have the thinnest frame and the best screen-to-body ratio.
New keyboard, new M pen, new multitasking
Huawei also supports multitasking for the new MatePad Pro 5G. With App Multiplier, you can have two or three windows in the same application, and use the slider to adjust the size. You can also mirror Huawei smartphones in a separate window and easily drag and drop files, text, and photos between devices.
With the "floating window", you can reply to text messages while playing games or watching movies without minimizing the application.
MatePad Pro 5G is equipped with multiple accessories at the same time, such as M-Pencil 9, and intelligent electromagnetic keyboard 11
Supports the new M-Pencil 9, which is very suitable for writing on glass surfaces. I was deeply impressed by the accuracy, response speed and sensitivity of M-Pencil. It has 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, 10 tilt supports and a tip made of a unique composite material. Putting the M pen on top of MatePad Pro will automatically start Bluetooth pairing and magnetic charging.
MatePad Pro 5G is also designed for a smart electromagnetic keyboard 11 that can be connected via Bluetooth. It allows you to type comfortably, and the Shift key can be used as a switch key for Huawei Share at the same time, allowing quick access to multi-screen collaboration functions.
Powered by Kirin 990
Huawei claims that this is the most powerful 5G tablet in the world. It is supported by the latest Kirin 990 flagship chipset with a CPU Hertz of up to 2.86GHz.
The internal CPU adopts a three-tier architecture, including two large cores, two middle cores and four small cores. The 16-core Mali-G76 GPU mainly improves performance and battery life, thereby providing a smooth gaming and entertainment experience. Of course, there is 5G support.
Huawei MatePad Pro audio
In terms of audio experience, Huawei provides support for MatePad Pro 5G Histen 6.0 to drive 3D stereo effects.
The high-amplitude four-channel four speakers are tuned by Harman Kardon to reproduce the most complex sounds with impeccable clarity. There are also five far-field microphones above to help eliminate noise.
Reverse wireless charging on tablets
Huawei MatePad Pro 5G has a 7250mAh battery. It comes with a 20W power adapter, but also supports 40W Huawei SuperCharge. You must purchase it separately.
The coolest thing here is that MatePad Pro is the world's first tablet that supports wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
Huawei MatePad Pro 5G left a deep impression on me. In terms of power, functionality and connectivity, it seems to be a real alternative to the Apple iPad Pro, especially at a cheaper price than it.
It looks very stylish. What do you think of MatePad Pro 5G? Will this beat the iPad Pro? Please leave your opinion.
