With thin bezels to boot, Huawei used a 10.8-inch AMOLED 2K display with a punch hole to accommodate the 8-megapixel front camera—that makes the MatePad Pro the first tablet to implement such a display solution.
Powering the MatePad Pro is Huawei’s flagship Kirin 990 processor paired with 6/8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage. Like its previous tablet offerings, the MatePad Pro comes in WiFi-only and WiFi+LTE versions. Keeping the lights on is a 7250mAh battery with 40W wired charging, 15W wireless charging, and 7.5W reverse wireless charging.
For the multimedia side, you still get Harman Kardon-tuned quad speakers and a lone 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus. As a professional-oriented tablet, the MatePad Pro supports Huawei’s M-Pen stylus for precise writing and drawing, along with a laptop mode for a PC-like interface and multi-window functionality.
While it does not have Google services like the Mate 30 series, the MatePad Pro has Huawei’s multi-screen collaboration mode where it can emulate a supported Huawei phone through the MatePad Pro’s display in real-time.
