Huawei is off to a new start on June 2nd, when it’s going to unveil new hardware products the final version of its HarmonyOS platform. That’s also the date when the Huawei MatePad Pro 2 debuts, together with the Huawei Watch 3 and Watch 3 Pro. Today we came across some tablet renders and we’d like to share them with you.
Huawei will ship this tablet with HarmonyOS 2.0 on board and the poster also shows a new keyboard and stylus. We see reduced bezel sizes from all sides, plus what appears to be a square camera module at the back. The device has the M-Pencil exposed and the most interesting bit of the leak is the new Mac-style dual dock bar. It can display running apps next to common apps, similar to PCs. The word of mouth says that both Xiaomi and Huawei are preparing forks from MIUI and HarmonyOS, especially tailored for tablets.
They’re inspired by Apple and its iOS being forked into iPadOS. A Kirin 9000 or Kirin 9000E SoC should be inside. The new Huawei tablet should also have a new type of multi screen collaboration. This will let smartphones “Split” into tablets and reconfigure the interactive experience (the words of a Huawei official). The MatePad Pro 2 is expected to pack a 12.2 or 12.6 inch screen, which may be an OLED with a bit of luck. 8 GB of RAM are also expected. The design should also be premium, based on glass and metal.
