The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 is the tech company's most powerful tablet yet, equipped with Kirin processor 9000E, 12.6-inch OLED display, and more!
HUAWEI Philippines officially launched its most powerful tablet yet today – the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6. The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 is equipped with the fastest Kirin processor 9000E with liquid cooling system. It frames a 12.6-inch HUAWEI OLED FullView display which comes with a 90% screen-to-body ratio. The tablet also boasts a million-to-one contrast ratio, support for the DCI-P3 wide color gamut, and color accuracy that rivals even professional monitors.
The new and improved App Multiplier and Multi-Window features also make multi-tasking more seamless, a testament to HUAWEI’s efforts to promote the improved support of landscape mode in tablet apps. HUAWEI also announced the launch of the HUAWEI M-Pencil, now on its 2nd generation. It offers smarter and more natural interactive experiences that help users capture their inspiration.
Built for a new generation of smart devices, HarmonyOS 2 empowers HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 with brand new functionality. The new tablet desktop is more organized, featuring the new Bottom Dock and Service Widgets to provide new ways for users to view important information more efficiently. Leveraging distributed technology, the new tablet can harness the capabilities of other devices – ranging from smartphones, PCs to smart TVs – to form a Super Device that can support a wide variety of creativity and productivity use cases.
12.6-inch HUAWEI OLED FullView display
Staying true to its moniker, the tablet comes with a 12.6-inch HUAWEI OLED FullView display. With an aspect ratio of 16:10 and narrow bezels that measure just 5.6mm thin, the display offers a 90% screen-to-body ratio. This is the highest in the world.
The HUAWEI OLED FullView display also supports a high contrast ratio of a million-to-one and the wide DCI-P3 color gamut, allowing it to produce better defined and true-to-life colors. Moreover, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 has a color accuracy rating of ∆E < 0.5, a level of accuracy that is only attained by some pro-grade monitors. This makes it a great portable second monitor for professional photographers.
With a blue light filtering hardware solution reducing emissions at the source, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 is the world’s first tablet to pass the range of rigorous tests and receive TÜV Rheinland Full Care Display 2.0 certification.
The commendable display is complemented by an eight-speaker sound system. It consists of large-amplitude tweeters and woofers to provide immersive multimedia experiences for the consumers. It’s also equipped with 4 microphones that pick up sound from up to 5 meters. Although it detects sound from afar, it removes unnecessary background noises during conference calls and recording because of its Active Noise Cancellation feature.
Multi-Device Collaboration helps users improve their productivity
The new HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 supports new Tablet-PC Multi-screen Collaboration capabilities: Mirror Mode, Extend Mode, and Collaborate Mode.
Mirror Mode. The screen of the connected PC is mirrored to the tablet display. It allows users to directly sign and annotate documents. Users can also draw on the PC with the HUAWEI M-Pencil (2nd generation) and HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 just like professional designers would with a drawing pad and stylus.
Extend Mode transforms the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 into a second screen. It provides extra screen space to display more content, great for checking reference materials or browsing the internet.
Innovative Collaborate Mode enables true cross-platform interactions, allowing users to transfer content such as text, images, and documents between connected devices with a simple drag and drop.
Tearing down the boundaries that separate tablets, smartphones, and PCs, these Multi-screen Collaboration capabilities elevate what users can do with the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 and other connected devices, empowering them to be more productive and creative.
Improved App Multiplier
First introduced in 2019, the first iteration of the revolutionary App Multiplier enabled tablet apps to better utilize the landscape orientation and display information with two active windows at once. With the launch of the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6, App Multiplier brings even more ways for users to make full use of horizontal displays.
While showing an app in a single window with the new App Multiplier active, users can now swipe on the empty spaces on either side of the tablet screen to scroll up and down to navigate app content, without letting go of their grip on the tablet. Users can also show two instances of the same app and interact with the windows as if they have launched the same app twice.
As of June 2021, nearly 4,000 apps have adopted App Multiplier to improve their user experiences. By continuously improving App Multiplier, HUAWEI is spearheading the development of tablet apps that support landscape orientation.
HUAWEI M-Pencil - 2nd gen and HUAWEI Smart Magnetic Keyboard
HUAWEI also introduced the HUAWEI M-Pencil - 2nd generation, which offers a pencil-like natural writing experience with the new platinum-coated pen nib, low latency, and support for 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Inspired by the clear case back design of luxury watches, the new transparent pen tip showcases the inner workings of the stylus, and comes with a frosted texture for a better drawing experience.
The new M-Pencil - 2nd Gen supports a breadth of innovative interaction features including HUAWEI FreeScript, which transforms handwritten content into machine-encoded text in real-time as well as double-tap to switch, Instant Shape, Instant Table, and more. Another M-Pencil innovation is the double-tap feature that allows users to change tools by just tapping twice its ergonomic body.
The innovative drawing features can also be used on third-party apps. Developed by HUAWEI, the Pencil Engine is open to all developers worldwide, offering a suite of features such as stroke prediction and brush effects that can all be easily integrated for richer, more natural drawing and handwriting experiences on third-party apps. M-Pencil 2nd Gen also supports wireless charging as it charges simultaneously with MatePad Pro 12.6. This feature also applies to the smart magnetic keyboard.
The HUAWEI Smart Magnetic Keyboard is a full-sized keyboard that features a key travel of 1.3mm to deliver satisfying typing experiences. Supporting Bluetooth and the magnetically paired keyboard synergizes with the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 to boost the productivity of any office user.
HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 Industry Firsts
The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 is also one of the world’s 1st tablets to sport three rear cameras (13MP) and a punch-hole. It allows users to have PC-like camera experience during online meetings -- an essential feature for today’s ZOOM-ridden schedules.
It’s also a rare feature in a tablet to have 8GB RAM + up to 512 ROM. Its exterior is also made of premium and durable magnesium alloy body and aluminum frame so users will not worry about scratches. Its storage configuration and reinforced body make the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 a great choice for modern-day Filipino hustlers who need devices that can keep up with years of hard work and grit.
