Tablet under QR1,000: Why Huawei MatePad wins at all levels

Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) on Tuesday announced the launch of the new Huawei MatePad, a new-generation smart office mid-range educational tablet powered by HarmonyOS 2. It features a 10.4inch 2k FullView Display and four speakers that are tuned by Harman Kardon for an immersive sound experience. The tablet is also compatible with the Huawei M-Pencil Package (2nd generation) and offers consumers multiple smart features to get tasks done in addition to a wide range of notetaking apps. The new and improved Huawei MatePad supports a rich ecosystem, positioning itself as an all rounded mid-range tablet that boasts solid and unmatchable features for an accessible price point.
The Huawei MatePad brings advancements in all aspects. Being slim and portable, it embodies the beauty of minimalism while merging ergonomics and technological aesthetics, resulting in a perfect balance between looks and user experience. Equipped with a 10.4-inch, 2K resolution Huawei FullView Display, the Huawei MatePad is set-up to deliver better image quality over a wide range of content. As a smart office and educational tablet, the Huawei MatePad enable users to better harness smart productivity and creativity, yielding an elevated learning experience.
Huawei FullView Display with quad speakers for an immersive viewing experience
Simplify the complexity – Huawei MatePad is a product that combines technology and aesthetics to continue the minimalist design language of the series. It boasts a 10.4inch 2k Huawei FullView Display with an 84% screen-to-body ratio, featuring no antenna break points exposed on the bezels or across the back cover. It naturally directs user’s attention to the screen content.
In an era where experience is of utmost importance, the Huawei MatePad is equipped with a 2K QHD (Ultra High-Resolution) screen to deliver an overwhelming visual experience that renders the graphics in finer details with better quality. It also features a micro-curved frame that makes the device look thinner and weighs only 450 grams allowing for a more comfortable grip. It is also vouched for by dual TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light and Flicker Free certifications, which attest to its ability to minimise the screen’s impact on the eyes, delivering an eye protection for users.
Moreover, the Huawei MatePad comes with a quad-channel, quad-speaker sound system, as well as professional tuning by Harman Kardon, enabling an ultimate cinema-grade multimedia experience for all users.
Enhanced productivity
Huawei once again innovates on top of a classic. The MatePad is equipped with the second-gen M-Pencil Package, bringing users a more realistic writing experience to comprehensively improve work and learning efficiency. The stylus brings system-level stylus capabilities including Huawei FreeScript, Annotate and Take snippet, making handwriting input more efficient and convenient.
The Huawei Smart Keyboard supports Bluetooth connectivity and features 1.3mm key travel to offer office workers and students a comfortable and responsive typing experience, even when typing with two hands for a longer period of time. MatePad has also fully optimised the mouse point, allowing the curser dot to have their corresponding cursor mode, previewing content of a certain app by hovering the mouse cursor over it and performing convenient control through clicking mouse.
In order to create a more efficient and convenient light-use office experience, MatePad features the Multi-Window and App Multiplier functions. The Multi-Window makes operation easier with opening up to 4 windows of different apps simultaneously where the App Multiplier addresses most apps that don’t support landscape mode to fully utilise apps when the tablet is in the landscape mode.
The new MatePad supports Tablet-PC Multi-screen Collaboration capabilities which contains three modes; Mirror Mode, Extend Mode and Collaborate Mode. In Mirror Mode, the laptop’s screen is mirrored to the tablet display, allowing users to directly work on files and documents, or draw/sketch on their laptop with the stylus of the MatePad just as professional designers would. Then there is Extend Mode, which transforms the MatePad into a second screen, providing extra screen space to display more content, great for online shopping, or when browsing the Internet and there are so many items to explore!
Additionally, the innovative Collaborate Mode enables cross-platform interactions, allowing users to transfer content such as text, images and documents between connected devices with a simple drag and drop! Tearing down the boundaries that separate tablets, smartphones and laptops, Multi-screen Collaboration enriches and elevates what you could possibly do with the new MatePad and other connected devices, empowering users and letting them become more productive and creative than ever.
The all-rounded tablet also supports seamless connectivity between tablet and smartphone thanks to Multi-Screen Collaboration. Multi-screen Collaboration enables simple drag-and-drop file transfers between smartphones and tablets. Peripheral sharing lets users type on the smartphone using the tablet’s keyboard and screen, play music saved on the smartphone with the tablet’s speakers and more. This solution also makes it possible for users to pick up calls or respond to text messages directly from the tablet, facilitating a seamless multi-device experience.
The MatePad offers a smart and seamless experience to users. The trusted, innovative and secure AppGallery is available on the MatePad, where users can download a wide range of high-quality apps. With AppGallery users can download a wide range of high-quality apps, be it maps, social media, bank apps, or your favourite food delivery apps; everything is just a few clicks away. AppGallery today is the 3rd largest app store in the world and is currently available in over 170 countries/regions across the globe.
Big battery
In its ultra-lightweight and thin design, MatePad is still fully powered up. Its huge 7,250mAh battery can remain on standby for up to 28 days and up to 12 hours of continuous local 1080p HD video playback. In addition, MatePad supports 22.5W SuperCharge, requiring only 2.5 hours for a full charge to ensure users to enjoy an enduring battery life.
Clear and powerful sound
While being efficient at office and study, MatePad also offers a good listening experience to help users obtain a comfortable technological experience in different scenarios such as video conferences, online classes and audio-visual entertainment.
MatePad also has excellent sound pickup and noise reduction characteristics, adopting three microphones and Huawei’s self-developed noise cancellation technology. These algorithms can distinguish between voices and noise in real time and filter out the latter for the best experience. These ensure that users are concentrating on the voices that they want to hear, allowing for more effective communications.
