The Huawei MatePad Pro with HarmonyOS

The 12.6″ HUAWEI MatePad Pro is a truly premium tablet designed for the ultimate media experience. The large OLED display has a 2560×1600 resolution and a 90% screen-to-body ratio. Running HarmonyOS, this device is powered by the Kirin 9000E SoC and a generous 8GB of RAM. Use 256GB of storage to get the most out of your media, whether you’re storing 4K movies, managing large music libraries, or enjoying many different gaming apps.

This tablet has a large 10,050mAh that can be charged via a wired connection at 40W or wireless at 27W. It’s very rare to see features like wireless charging in a tablet like this since other manufacturers cut corners and don’t include it. HUAWEI has made sure that the HUAWEI MatePad Pro has everything you’d expect out of a Pro model device.

In XDA’s full review of the HUAWEI MatePad Pro, you’ll find a detailed look at how HarmonyOS performs on a device like this.

HarmonyOS 2.0 introduces a number of UI improvements across the board, particularly in the quick settings menu on the far right. I won’t lie — there are some very clear iPadOS influences here, and it’s pretty hard to miss them at times. Even the system icons look very Apple-inspired. – Adam Conway
