Huawei’s MatePad Pro has been officially released and it looks a lot like the iPad Pro. Unlike Apple’s offering, the MatePad’s 10.8-inch (2,560 x 1,600 resolution) display has even slimmer 4.9mm bezels, thanks to an 8.0-megapixel, hole-punch front camera. The display outputs an extremely bright 540 nits while supporting the DCI-P3 gamut for accurate color reproduction. Unfortunately, it’s thicker than the iPad Pro at 7.2mm versus 5.9mm.
It’s powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 990 processor, and features either 6GB RAM / 128GB of storage ($470) or 8GB of RAM / 256GB of storage ($710), with the latter including the stylus and keyboard, a 13-megapixel main camera, 7,250 mAh battery, 40W wired fast charging (15W wireless charging), quad Harman Kardon speakers, and a 5-microphone array. The tablet runs the Android 10-based EMUI 10, so Google Play store will likely not be supported for international versions.
