Chinese Telecom giants Huawei has held their Summer 2022 Smart Office Launch event in China. As promised, the event took place on the 27th of July 2022 where different products were announced by Huawei. One of the main highlights of the event was the announcement of the Huawei MatePad Pro 11 tablet. According to Huawei, the MatePad pro 11 stands out amongst all the other tablets in the world. Measuring just 5.9mm, this tablet PC happens to be thinnest tablet you can find on the market. Also, there is no tablet out there that weighs lighter than the Huawei MatePad Pro 11 which has a weight of just 449grams.
Wait a minute, it is not totally the lightest neither is it the thinnest tablet PC per say. The apple iPad pro 11 2021 also has the same thickness of 5.9mm and Samsung also has a couple of tablet out there weighing 449grams. A notable example is the Samsung Tab A 9.7″. So, Huawei may be right to call the MatePad Pro 11 the lightest and thinnest but in actual fact, they share with both Apple and Samsung in each category respectively.
