Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, is doing quite well in the smartphone market. Oh yes, you read that right, the Chinese manufacturer’s smartphone business is growing. Despite the ban by the U.S. Huawei somehow managed to hold on to its own. Since the beginning of last year, the company had to manage American restrictions. Its devices can not use Google Play Services which means that its sales outside China would drop. However, for 2019, Huawei shipped about 240 million smartphones, its record high. Furthermore, the Chinese manufacturer also toppled Samsung in April. For April and May, Huawei is the number one smartphone manufacturer globally. However, there are forecasts that it may lose this position in June. Now, Huawei’s new tablet just got 3C certification.

This is coming after two of its high-end chargers (66W & 65 GaN) got the certification. According to the certification, the new tablet comes with model number SCMR-W09. Furthermore, the certification also shows that Huawei’s new tablet supports 22.5W fast charging. Of course, its a tablet and we don’t expect it to come with Huawei’s high-end chargers.

The tablet manufacturing market is not as lucrative as the smartphone business. Presently, there are not many 5G tablets in the market. However, since the beginning of last year, Huawei has released two 5G tablets in the Chinese market – Huawei MatePad Pro 5G and Huawei MatePad. These tablets target different user markets.
Among them, Huawei MatePad Pro 5G comes with a Kirin 990 5G SoC, supports 40W super-fast charging, 27W wireless fast charging, and 3D graphene cooling technology. As for the Huawei MatePad, it uses a Kirin 810 chip. It also comes with a built-in 7250 mAh battery that supports 18W fast charge.
The Huawei MatePad Pro 5G comes with a large 10.8-inch display featuring 2K resolution and very narrow bezels. This allows the device to attain a 90% screen to body ratio. We then find a maximum brightness of 540 nits and a punch-hole camera in the upper left corner. Meanwhile, on the back we have a skin-like back cover. Overall the tablet is very slim with a thickness of 7.99m and light at 492 grams. The tablet then packs an 8MP front camera and a single 13MP rear shooter. There’re also four-channel four-amplitude speakers, Harman Kardon tuning, and a five-ring array microphone for effective sound pickup within five meters.
