The Huawei MatePad Pro is not a completely new device. It was unveiled in its home country China back in late 2019 without any word regarding its global availability. Both the Chinese and global iterations of the tablet seem to be identical except for the 5G support in the latter. This makes the MatePad Pro one of the first 5G tablets in the world.

Huawei MatePad Pro Details

Huawei MatePad Pro flaunts a 10.8-inch AMOLED display, which is similar to that of the iPad Pro. And, there is a magnesium alloy frame with curved corners.

The device flaunts an 8MP sensor at the front within a punch-hole cutout and a 13MP sensor at its rear.

The MatePad Pro has a screen-to-body ratio of 90%, thanks to the punch-hole cutout that keeps the bezels thin. The screen has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. Huawei has introduced a slew of optional accessories including the M-Pencil stylus and a detachable keyboard stand cover. It runs Android 10 topped with the company's custom skin EMUI 10.
