Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2″ officially sees light of day

  • Huawei has unveiled its latest business-focused tablet – the MatePro Pro 13.2″.
  • The device was teased last week by the company and features a 94 percent screen-to-body ratio.
  • The MatePad Pro 13.2″ is expected early next year in SA, but the precise processor it’s running remains unknown for now.

Last week, in preparation for an event being hosted in Dubai, Huawei teased that it would be launching a new business-focused tablet in the form of the MatePad Pro 13.2″.

Said event has now happened, and true to its word, Huawei has unveiled two new tablets.

The other offering is called the MatePad Air PaperMatte Edition, but it is the MatePad Pro 13.2″ that has our more immediate attention, namely as it is aimed at those consumers concerned with productivity, as well as Huawei billing it as a primary screen device that users will be able to work on.

To highlight its flagship status, Huawei notes that it boasts the highest screen-to-body ratio for a tablet of similar dimensions on the market right now.

“It features a flexible OLED screen and has an astonishing 94% screen-to-body ratio, making it the tablet with the highest screen-to-body ratio currently available,” the company noted in a release shared with Hypertext.

“With its incredibly lightweight and slim design, the tablet sets a new standard in terms of portability. Weighing only 580g and measuring just 5.5mm in thickness, it is one of the thinnest tablets available on the market,” it added.

In terms of other capabilities, the aforementioned 13.2″ OLED display also supports up to 120Hz refresh rates, a 2880×1920 resolution, as well as support for Huawei’s latest 3rd Gen M Pen stylus.

Looking at the connectivity side of things, WiFi 6 is supported, but no mention of this stage of what is happening on cellular. In fact, Huawei is yet to officially disclose what processor the MatePad Pro 13.2″ will be running.

What is known, however, is that the tablet is powered by a 10 100mAh dual-cell battery that features 88W fast charging.

In terms of battery life, it can deliver up to 12 hours battery life for video playback, with fast charging capable of charging the battery up to 85 percent in 40 minutes, and 100 percent in 65 minutes, according to Huawei.

As mentioned, precise local launch date and price are yet to be shared, but the MatePad Pro 13.2″ is earmarked for a South African release early next year.
