A few hours ago, Huawei organized an event for smart new products for all scenarios. At the conference, the company unveiled a number of new products, such as the Huawei Band B6, Huawei MateBook D14 (7nm Ryzen), MateBook D15 (7nm Ryzen), Huawei MatePad 10.8, Huawei Enjoy Tablet 2 and Huawei Children Band 4X. In this context, the MatePad 10.8 is the company’s first tablet to support Wi-Fi 6+. Let’s take a closer look.
Features Huawei MatePad 10.8
The current MatePad 10.4 is powered by the Kirin 810 platform. Also, the 10.8-inch MatePad Pro has the Kirin 990 platform. So the manufacturer decided to bring the same chip to the MatePad 10.8.
This is a fairly powerful SoC developed by Huawei itself. It is reported that the Kirin 990 adopts a 7nm process. It comes with a three-tier energy efficiency architecture. In addition to the 8 cores, there is a sub CPU. The chip incorporates a 16-core Mali-G76 GPU.
As we said at the beginning, the MatePad 10.8 is Huawei’s first Wi-Fi 6+ tablet. It provides a transfer rate of up to 2400Mbps, which saves time whether downloading large files or watching HD video on the Internet.
WiFi 6+ technology was unveiled at the Huawei Terminal Product Conference held in February this year. By the way, the HUAWEI P40 series also supports WiFi 6 Plus technology. Huawei Wi-Fi 6+ supports automatic on-demand messaging in narrowband mode (sourced from Lingxiao chip). It can ensure stable operation in 2MHz mode (the power of the smartphone transmission signal can be increased up to 6dB). In this way, the coverage of the Huawei WiFi 6 smartphone router was improved, allowing Huawei WiFi 6 phones to go through an additional signal wall.
For other key features, the MatePad 10.8 uses a 16:10 2K display. It has a quad-speaker quad-speaker audio system as well as M-Pencil. The magnetic keyboard is only 345g. Runs on pre-installed EMUI 10.1 system. It supports more useful features such as screen collaboration, Huawei Unilink, distributed collection, video connection and smart split screen.
In addition, the battery capacity is 7500mAh. The nominal life when playing games is 7 hours, local video playback is 11 hours and web browsing is 10 hours.
In terms of prices, the WLAN 6 + 64 GB version is available at 2399 yuan ($ 342). the 6 + 128 GB WLAN is 2799 yuan ($ 399). the 6 + 128 GB 4G is 3199 yuan ($ 457). WLAN 6 + 256 GB (including keyboard) is 3599 yuan ($ 514). It is available for pre-order and will be released on August 13th.
