The MatePad got majorly published as an educational tool with Huawei incorporating an educational center that includes learning resources on top of its own “Focus UI”. Huawei even boasts that it worked on measures assuring the tablet to help students in reading and learning rather being just an addiction. The tablet comes with a special reading mode that supersedes blue rays while emulating a monochrome e-paper like experience as well as monitors eye distance and posture of the reader.
It gets its power from a Kirin 810 chipset and boots on the EMUI 10.1 supporting multi-window, and compatible device integration, of course without the Google Services. A 7,250mAh cell keeps its lights on.
The Huawei MatePad houses four large Harman Kardon-tuned speakers alongside a batch of four microphones that are said to enhance multimedia experience atop virtual learning and classrooms. And you get support for the Huawei M-Pencil too.
