First sensations

Huawei knows well that every device it launches on the market has to be very finely woven. This is the case of the Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6 “that arrived a few months after the presentation of the Huawei MatePad 11 and that we had the opportunity to go through the analysis a few days ago.

If we say that it has spun fine, it is because it has endowed this tablet with a series of specifications to set the bar very high. A few days after the presentation of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5, we also have the analysis, and the tablets are placing themselves in a very special position with all these alternatives.

There is one aspect in which Huawei’s tablet surpasses Xiaomi, and this is the OLED technology on the screen so that the second stay on LCD. If we add its QHD 2,560 x 1,600-pixel resolution, we have a tablet to show off its screen at all times.

In fact, in the presentation of the product, the Huawei MateBook 14s with Windows 10 is presented as your best companion for that multiscreen, thanks to that hyperconnectivity of which we already gave exclusive details.

The hyperconnectivity of the Huawei MatePad 12.6 “is one of its strengths. We do not notice a loss of time when we pass something from a Huawei P40 to the tablet and duplicate the PC screen perfectly synchronized.

We arrive at one of its best virtues since if this new Huawei tablet fits into our daily work or study flows, accompanied by a laptop, it can be produced exponentially with it.

Of course, the rest of the specifications cover all the needs to turn it into a premium tablet that should not be forgotten, even though Huawei still has its things with the United States government.
All the potential in hardware and more

And even if you still have HarmonyOS 2, we must not forget that this tablet allows the installation of Android APKs so that its 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM, its 256 GB of internal UFS 3.1 storage, and that HiSilicon Kirin 9000E octa-core chip perform in any important event we throw at it.

Nor is there a lack of a series of cameras, an 8 Mpx front with f / 2.0 aperture and a main 13 Mpx, with autofocus and f / 1.8 aperture, an accompanying 8 Mpx wide-angle, and a depth sensor.

The battery is there with its 10,050 mAh and a consumption per hour of 1,000 mAh. We do not know the fast charge, but we can already spend hours and hours of consumption because of its battery.

According to Huawei, the battery reaches 17 hours of standby and 14 hours of video playback.

And while we do miss that it is 5G (it would be insurmountable), it has WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 connection to be up to date. We once again emphasize that Huawei has assembled around tablets on the hardware and its specifications. The other side of reality is software.

Finally, we do not forget its 8 speakers so that the differences between the treble and bass are noticeable but well.
Its design: elegance

Some bezels that remain shortly after are very thin, for a tablet that denotes elegance on all sides. A matte black finish and rounded corners are to be loved at first glance.

It does not weigh much in hand, so its 12.6 “screen is irresistible for all types of content and that Harmony OS 2 makes its presence at all times.

Of course, the keyboard gives even more presence to the whole with a back that fits perfectly into the design philosophy of the Chinese brand.

You will realize that the vast majority of the photographs we have taken are with its keyboard, which is essential to give this tablet another experience.

The Chinese brand has realized that it has a great card in its favor, and that is to orchestrate everything to create a set of devices that connect. In this way, it can also reduce the dependency it has had on Android and harbor other hopes.

Connected to PC

And this is where the multiscreen or the mirroring possibilities of this tablet come into play so that a Huawei P40 goes to the screen, and we can even edit video from the tablet’s app.

With our fingers, we can drag the images on the mobile from the mirroring to that app to drop them and thus edit them to demonstrate the hyperconnectivity of this tablet and Harmony OS 2 in general.


We have seen different configurations of the Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6 to make it part of a network of devices that connect in multiscreen.

We are left with that we are with a tablet that allows the connection of a smartphone to mirror and thus gives another point to multitasking and that multiscreen collaboration.
