Tablet PCs have become viable, lightweight alternatives to full-suite desktops in the last few years, with Huawei‘s MatePad line leading the charge. Slim enough to fit in most bags yet packing enough punch to chomp through work tasks, MatePads provide a distinct advantage for the always-on-the-go crowd.
Enter the MatePad Air, Huawei Philippines’ newest tablet bursting with tech that’s built for intuitive productivity and recreational scenarios. It’s a device that embraces non-traditional office setups, letting users work and create in any space that suits them.
Light flagship tablet, premium design
The Huawei MatePad Air inherits the iconic industrial designs seen on previous Huawei MatePad products, and the Frosting Process on high-end flagship products. The MatePad Air’s surface is made of ultra-thin glass fibre, which is more difficult and costly to produce than traditional glass fibres and alternatives like plastic. At just 6.4 mm thick and 508g weight, the tablet is slimmed down to a remarkable degree, with a hidden antenna and flat surface design that take minimalism to new heights.
Stunning Huawei FullView Display, 144Hz glory
Screen quality is still an important factor to consider when purchasing a new tablet. The Huawei MatePad Air features an 11.5-inchHuawei FullView Display with a 2800 x 1840 pixel resolution and 3:2 productivity screen. This gives the tablet a larger display area than that typically seen on a 16:10 screen, making it ideal for both office tasks.
The screen’s brilliant quality coupled with the higher refresh rate means scrolling and switching between content is silky-smoother than ever. During work scenarios, the display renders the intricate detail of text and images with crisp accuracy, while entertainment usage gets the benefit of vivid color reproduction that brings content to life.
The MatePad Air is the first Huawei tablet to support a maximum screen refresh rate of 144Hz. The display’s P3 cinema-level color gamut ensures that all content is presented in its full grandeur. The tablet supports an adaptive refresh rate range of 30Hz to 144Hz, which adjusts based on the usage scenario. By dynamically adjusting the refresh rate, the tablet screen flawlessly balances the need for immersive visuals with power efficiency, such as browsing through photo albums and system settings.
Besides, there’s also a powerful SuperRender game engine that enhances the definition in certain games, and provides for smoother and more stable gameplay with a higher refresh rate. In addition, the 144Hz Huawei FullView Display works seamlessly with the Huawei M-Pencil (2nd generation), reducing latency to almost 0 when handwriting or sketching.
