Just a few weeks in the past, rumors and images of a supposed Huawei MatePad Professional began to hit the online. As you may in all probability guess by the title, it’s the corporate’s tackle an iPad Professional competitor.
On the time we didn’t have a agency launch date, however now it appears the pill will arrive as quickly as this month: Huawei CEO Richard Yu made a Weibo post teasing a MatePad even for November 25.
At a look, it’d be straightforward to mistake the pill for an iPad Professional. Granted, there are solely so some ways to design a pill, but it surely has comparatively slim bezels, a really Apple-Pencil-looking stylus, and a gray keyboard. That mentioned, it seems to come back in a number of colorways, and the display includes a hole-punch digicam, so there’s that.
Spec-wise, the pill seems to sport the brand new Kirin 990 Chip within the Mate 30 Professional, and 8GB of RAM. As regular, it’s principally a flagship telephone blown up into a bigger kind issue, however that’s not essentially a nasty factor, particularly if Huawei has optimized thermals to eke a bit extra efficiency out of the pill than its smartphone.
The occasion is being held in Shanghai and we’ve seen little fanfare concerning the pill from Huawei‘s European advertising and marketing, so it’s honest to imagine the corporate is specializing in a China launch for now. Nonetheless, we’re curious to see how the pill holds up in the actual world, given the shortage of respectable Android tablets.
