In Laptops, Tablets, Wearables by Ramon LopezLeave a Comment

Huawei has launched three new devices in the Philippines amid the extended lockdown in most parts of the country that has forced retail stores to close or scale down their operations drastically for fear of COVID-19 spread.

In particular, the company’s local arm debuted the Huawei MatePad Pro, Huawei MateBook X Pro, and Huawei Watch GT 2e during a virtual event. Huawei Philippines also skipped the usual launch for the P40 and P40 Pro flagship smartphones.

Due to the ongoing quarantine in the Philippines, the newly launched devices are only available online for now. You can buy them from Lazada, Shopee, and MemoXpress.

You’ll find the prices of the new devices below.

  • Huawei MatePad Pro: P32,990 (around $652)
  • Huawei MateBook X Pro: P119,990 ($2,370)
  • Huawei Watch GT 2e: P6,990 ($138)

The Watch GT 2e is available for purchase starting today, while the MatePad Pro and MateBook X Pro are still up for preorder.

On Lazada and Shopee, those who buy the Huawei Watch GT 2e early will receive an additional watch strap and an umbrella; the bundle is valued at P1,190 ($24).

Meanwhile, early adopters of the Huawei MatePad Pro are entitled to a preorder freebie package worth P14,980 ($296). They’ll receive a Huawei smart keyboard case, a Huawei M-pencil stylus, a Huawei CM510 Bluetooth speaker, plus VIP service at Huawei service centers across the country.

Huawei MatePad Pro

The Huawei MatePad Pro is a 10.8-inch Android tablet with a huge LCD screen running at 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. And, yes, it’s different from the MatePad Pro 5G, which offers fast data connectivity on compatible 5G networks.

Unlike most tablets and previous iterations in the MatePad family, the Pro has small bezels on the sides and a punch hole for the front-facing camera. The display is also compatible with Huawei’s M-pencil stylus, which the company says “writes naturally like a pencil on paper” and boasts 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity to capture every nuance of the stylus’ interaction with the tablet.

Additionally, the M-pencil pairs automatically and attaches magnetically to the side of the slate while charging it wirelessly. The stylus is sold separately. Another accessory you can purchase for the Huawei MatePad Pro is the company’s smart magnetic keyboard that delivers 1.3mm of travel — more than the shallow butterfly switches of some MacBooks. It also supports the tablet at two angles, making it look like a makeshift laptop.
