The MatePad Pro is the First Tablet with a Punch-Hole Display

It is Huawei’s most powerful tablet to date

High-end tablets like the iPad Pro and Galaxy Tab S6 are giving new life to the tablet market, and Huawei is joining the arena with the MatePad Pro.

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.
