Huawei launched the P60 Pro and Mate X3 in Europe this week, kicking off a busy summer. Huawei will launch a new MatePad and a wristwatch during a highly anticipated presentation in China on May 18.
The official Weibo tweet did not reveal the slate’s name, but rumours imply the Huawei MatePad Air. A Wi-Fi-only model (DBY2-W00) and two 4G-enabled models (DBY2-AL00 and DBY2Z-AL00) have been certified.
ITHome, a Chinese publication, said that the tablet will have a Snapdragon 888 CPU and an 8,200 mAh battery with 40W charging. Since it cannot use 5G technologies, Huawei uses outdated flagship chips.
It is expected to cost between the MatePad 11 (2023) ($318) and MatePad Pro 11 (2022) ($505). In the next days, the official teaser campaign will provide more details.
Huawei’s Summer Product Launch event on the 18th will also unveil the new Huawei Watch 4 series and MateBook notebooks, which will compete with Apple’s MacBooks.
These goods’ global release date is unknown.
