What you need to know

  • Huawei has unveiled three new tablets running its HarmonyOS operating system.
  • The new 12.6-inch MatePad Pro features a 16:10 OLED panel, HiSilicon's Kirin 9000E chipset, and a 10,050mAh battery.
  • It has been priced at €799 ($975) in Europe

Huawei introduced three new MatePad series tablets at its HarmonyOS event today, alongside the Huawei Watch 3. As you would expect, the new MatePad tablets run Huawei's "in-house developed" HarmonyOS operating system.

The 12.6-inch MatePad Pro sports a 1600 x 2560 OLED display with thin bezels and HDR10 compliance. Huawei's answer to the best Android tablets is powered by HiSilicon's Kirin 9000E chipset, a slightly less impressive version of the flagship Kirin 9000 chip. The tablet packs a large 10,050mAh battery with support for 40W wired charging and 27W wireless charging. It also includes Wi-Fi 6 support, eight speakers, and a triple-camera setup on the back.

The 10.8-inch MatePad Pro is similar to the 12.6-inch model in most areas, but comes equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 870 chipset and an LCD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. It also packs a smaller 7,250mAh battery.

Huawei's all-new MatePad 11 has a 10.95-inch LCD display featuring the same 120Hz refresh rate as the smaller MatePad Pro. It runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 processor and comes with a quad-speaker system tuned by Harman Kardon. Keeping the lights on is a 7,250mAh battery. All three tablets support Huawei's second-generation M-Pencil stylus, which touts improved 9ms latency and a platinum-coated transparent nib.

While Huawei's HarmonyOS 2.0 may not impress everyone, it promises a "desktop-like" experience on the new MatePad tablets. Thanks to the Multi-screen collaboration feature, you'll be able to easily control your Huawei phone from your MatePad tablet. You can even use the tablet as a secondary display using Mirror mode with compatible Windows 10 Huawei laptops.

The 12.6-inch MatePad Pro will retail for €799 in Europe, while the MatePad 11 will be available from €399. There's currently no word on when the tablets will be available to purchase, although Huawei has promised to share more details soon.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.
