The post is accompanied by an image that partially reveals the rumored MatePad branding, indicating at a possible launch of the Huawei MatePad Pro tablet.

According to the leaks and rumors, there would be a presence of HiSilicon Kirin 990 SoC with up to 8GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage. Additionally, the review also reveals some information about the new M-Pen stylus.

The new Huawei stylus will bring a ton of improvements, including 20ms latency with six in-built gestures and up to 10 hours of usage on a single charge. The stylus will be hexagonal is shape inspired by wooden pencils weighing 14g with a diameter of 160mm.
The tip will be made of a unique composite material consisting of POM, TPU metal electrode, and other outsourced composite material to offer a better writing experience.
Company’s take on the design of MatePad Pro
Huawei’s tablet is one of the first tablets to use this camera implementation, even though the bezels seem thick enough to accommodate the front-facing camera unit. Huawei’s M-Pen stylus also appears to have undergone a design change, again taking inspiration from the Apple Pencil.
Now, this would be the direct battle of design between MatePad Pro and iPad Pros that are already dominating the tablet market.
Huawei MatePad Pro colors availability
MatePad Pro will be available in two additional colors apart from the pair we previously shared. Shades of green and orange appear to be the new ones, while we still have the white and blue hues seen in earlier leaks.
Battery specifications of Huawei MatePad Pro
There would be a massive 7,250mAh battery that will run the MatePad Pro with support for 40W fast charging.
Price of Huawei MatePad Pro
expected price tags of 3,699 Yuan(6GB + 128GB), 3,999 Yuan(6GB + 256GB), and 5,499 Yuan(8GB + 512GB) respectively. We do need to point out that the price leak has now been removed from Slashleaks, considering it looks speculative. Regardless, this tablet would be directly competing with the new iPad Pros.
