Legal-wise Huawei might still be in hot water but the company is pushing ahead with its 5G devices.
Huawei just introduced the 5G version of the iPad Pro clone it launched last year, the MatePad Pro.
The MatePad Pro 5G features this next-gen connectivity and ups the ante with two-way wireless charging and screen mirroring with paired phones.
Because of the security woes and bans, the MatePad Pro uses the open-source Android but can’t ship with any Google apps or services like the Play Store, so it will have the AppGallery as the core functionality.
Huawei points out that the MatePad Pro is the first tablet with wireless charging.
Not only does it charge at up to 27W but you can also use it in reverse-charge, to top off the keyboard case, the stylus, a smartphone or headphones at up to 7.5 W.
In just 30 seconds of charging, you can use the M Pen for 30 minutes.
Charge it for an hour, that usage time goes up to 10 hours!
While reverse-charge on the MatePad Pro 5G works with one device at a time, the stylus is exempt from that rule – you can wireless charge your phone for example and attach the stylus to top it off simultaneously.
The screen mirroring feature works with compatible EMUI devices.
It features a 10.8-inch display with 4.9 mm bezels (90 percent screen-to-body ratio), a punch-hole camera and a 2560 x 1600 resolution.
Under the hood, you’ll find the Kirin 990 processor paired with a 7,250mAh battery, either 6 GB of 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB / 256 GB / 512 GB storage extendable with a microSD card.
The MatePad Pro 5G starts at €549 for the 6 GB / 128 GB model (without the M Pen) and goes up to €949 for the 8 GB / 512GB version.
This premium Android tablet will start shipping this June in China, Asia Pacific, EMEA and Latin America.
