Huawei MatePad Pro is a 10.8-inch Android tablet with no Google apps

The MatePad Pro lacks Google Play Services

Huawei’s answer to Apple’s iPad Pro is the 10.8-inch MatePad Pro — a tablet that looks nearly identical to Apple’s iPad Pro line. As has become expected with Huawei’s devices, it’s unclear if this tablet will ever be released in Canada.

Huawei is only shipping this new tablet only in China right now, which makes sense because it lacks Google Play Services. While the MatePad Pro sports Android 10 with EMUI 10 skinned over it, those who purchase the tablet won’t be able to download Google apps. This is similar to the Mate 30 Pro.

The device sports a Kirin 990 processor, 6GB or 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a 7,250mAh battery and a 13-megapixel camera. Additionally, the tablet features 40W charging, 15W wireless charging and reverse-wireless charging.

The 10.8-inch also features a 2560 x 1660 pixel resolution, a hole-punch camera with an 8-megapixel sensor and a stylus.

The MatePad Pro launches December 12th, with a 5G variant set to release in 2020. The tablet costs 3,299 yuan (roughly $623.94 CAD).
