Huawei MatePad Pro
The all-new Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6 is the latest flagship tablet from Huawei; unlike their previous tablets, this one runs on Huawei’s own Harmony OS 2 instead of Android. Upfront, the tablet has a gorgeous 12.6-inch OLED panel with support for the DCI-P3 color gamut resulting in incredibly high color accuracy, delivering a crisp, color-accurate picture that is on par with professional monitors.
Huawei’s own Kirin 9000E 5GSoC powers the tablet. It is a 5nm Octa-core SoC with 1×3.13 GHz Cortex-A77 & 3×2.54 GHz Cortex-A77 & 4×2.05 GHz Cortex-A55 cores and Mali-G78 MP22 GPU.
