At the “HarmonyOS 2 and Huawei All-Scene new product launch conference”, Huawei released a flagship tablet with HarmonyOS 2. This tablet is a new generation of the Huawei MatePad Pro. Furthermore, the company also announced its second-generation HUAWEI M-Pencil stylus. In addition to the 12.6-inch Huawei MatePad Pro, the company also unveiled the 10.8-inch Huawei MatePad Pro that uses the SD870 SoC. However, Huawei is not done with tablets. There is also a teaser of an 11-inch Huawei MatePad which Huawei is yet to announce.
According to a recent report from @DCS, Huawei MatePad 11 will use a Snapdragon 865 chip. This device will also come with a 2K 120Hz LCD screen. Under the hood, this tablet will have a built-in 7250 mAh battery. Of course, like other new devices from Huawei, this device will also have the HarmonyOS 2 system.
