The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has caused major disruptions to our lives. With the constant rule changes due to the ever-changing situation, having devices that can readily adapt will go a long way to survive this tough period.
For working professionals who now needs to switch between from working at home and in office in an instant, having a versatile mobile device becomes of utmost importance.
Not only is such a device needed for productivity to ensure smooth workflow, it is also needed to be used for entertainment purposes to maintain sanity in these crazy times. But the dilemma has always been whether to get a laptop (for productivity) or a tablet (for leisure).
However, you don’t have to choose when you have the Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6-inch tablet (S$1,398, available exclusively on Lazada). It will have all your needs served in one device. Here’s why!
LARGE GORGEOUS DISPLAY
You will need a large display whether it is for preparing presentations for clients or watching The Squid Game on Netflix.
And as its name implies, this tablet features a 12.6-inch OLED FullView display with super slim bezels measuring a mere 5.6mm. You are practically holding a piece of display with a stunning resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels.
In addition, the display has a colour accuracy rating of ∆E < 0.53 – a level of accuracy that is only attained by some pro-grade monitors – making it ideal for professional photographers.
The tablet’s display also sports an incredible contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 as well as support for DCI-P3 colour gamut to display content with life-like vibrancy and accurate colour reproduction. So whether you are editing photos or watching movies, the display will remain an eye-candy and just gorgeous to look at.
Not to mention, the MatePad Pro is also the world’s first tablet to receive the TÜV Rheinland Full Care Display 2.0 certification. Basically, this means the display has reduced blue light and flicker free to protect your eyes.
SLIM & LIGHTWEIGHT
Despite its large display, the MatePad Pro measures only 6.7mm thin and weighs a mere 609g light. Thus, you can easily carry it around in your backpack or handbag during your commutes.
It also means this tablet allows you to work no matter where you are, whether it is in office, home or coffee shop. And when you pull it out from your bag, you are going to attract glances of envy.
The MatePad Pro features a magnesium-aluminium alloy mid-frame that provides strength as well as its good looks. Plus, its micro-curved frame makes the tablet looks thinner and fits better for a comfortable grip.
Whether you are using the tablet to present your proposal to clients or lying down on your sofa to catch up with the latest K-dramas, the tablet will feel as smooth as it looks.
Depending on stocks availability, you will be getting the Smart Magnetic Keyboard (S$248) and the second-generation Huawei M-Pencil (S$148) stylus for free when you buy this MatePad Pro.
With the keyboard, you can turn your the tablet into a laptop in a jiffy when you need to work on a client’s urgent request. You can also pair a Bluetooth mouse with the tablet for the complete desktop experience.
And when you need to write down notes or sketch out an ideation, you can use the M-Pencil stylus. This stylus writes and draws like a real pencil. It is super responsive with the stylus’ brush strokes varying according to the strength of your input.
In other words, you are not only getting free accessories but actually free productivity boosters.
The MatePad Pro 12.6-inch is blessed with Huawei’s Kirin 9000E 5G chip, which is capable of multi-tasking and processing massive amount of data.
So, you can be assured of smooth running of apps and seamless operation of whatever tasks you are doing. The tablet also allows Multi-Window function, which displays up to 4 app windows or 2 floating windows on the screen at the same time. Great for multi-tasking.
Furthermore, with Huawei Share, the Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6-inch can be used as a sketch pad with a laptop display mirrored on it. In addition, the tablet can also be used to extend your laptop display, so you save money on an extra monitor.
During meetings, you can also easily move documents from this tablet to your colleagues’s laptop for faster collaboration.
NO GMS NO PROBLEM
Due to the US-China trade war, this tablet does not have Google Mobile Services (GMS) and as such, no Google Play Store, Google Docs and others.
But fret not. Running on HarmonyOS 2 and Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), the MatePad Pro comes with Huawei’s very own app store — AppGallery. Huawei also includes a Petal Search feature that scours the Internet for the apps you need to install.
As a result, you can still easily download your favourite apps, such as Viu, Spotify and WhatsApp as well as essential apps such as TraceTogether, SingPass and DBS digibank. No GMS, no problem!
LONG BATTERY LIFE
The MatePad Pro 12.6-inch is equipped with a huge 10,050mAh battery for long battery life. Some power banks do not even have such a big capacity battery to charge your smartphones.
Plus, with the energy-efficient Kirin 9000E chip and power-saving technology of HarmonyOS, this tablet can last up to 14 hours of continuous local 1080p video playback and 9 hours of web browsing.
It is also able to remain on standby for up to 17 days. Most impressively, the tablet is able to last 4.5 hours with just an hour of charging. So, just remember to charge tablet an hour before your presentation. And you do not have to worry about the screen going blank.
If you are still contemplating whether to get a laptop or a tablet, you can stop thinking now. All you need is to get the Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6-inch tablet. Its large gorgeous display makes it almost feel like a laptop and yet it offers the versatility of a tablet. In essence, you are getting the best of both worlds.
Not to forget, you will be getting the Huawei Smart Magnetic Keyboard and the Huawei M-Pencil (2nd Gen) stylus for free with each purchase of the tablet.
But wait! There are more offers on HMS to enhance your computing experience. The Huawei Video online streaming service will be offering a one-month subscription of only S$1, while new users will enjoy it for free.
And if you are looking to upgrade your cloud storage? New users will get 50GB of Huawei Mobile Cloud Storage for free in the first three months. Existing users can enjoy a monthly subscription of 50GB storage at only 30 cents for the first month.
Both of the above-mentioned promotions will last till Dec 12. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get the Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6-inch tablet and upgrade your life.
