Review of Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6 Tablet

A thin, but very stable case, measuring 5.6 millimeters in diameter

Although the Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6 has a screen that measures almost 13 inches, the device is slim. A narrow bezel frame surrounds the OLED screen and measures 5.6 millimeters (~0.22 in) on each side. With a screen-to-body ratio of 90%, this not only looks great but also adds to the device’s functionality.

Stability is not sacrificed due to the thin metal frame. Despite being extremely sturdy, the MatePad Pro 12.6 is still difficult to twist, even with considerable force. Even though it weighs only 609 grams (*22 oz), the tablet can still be handled easily due to its thin chassis and its 6.7 millimeters (2.26 in) thickness.

The tablet’s back is elegantly designed. An embedded Huawei logo is located in the center of a small camera unit located in the upper right corner of the back cover. Its design reminds me strongly of Huawei’s P40 series’ camera humps and it comes equipped with a 13 megapixel triple camera that’s almost excessive for a tablet.

The power button is located left of the camera, opposite the volume rocker, rather than positioned in the center. This tablet is offered by Huawei in the “Matte Grey” case color, which we reviewed for this review. Another variant with an olive green cover is also available.

NM card expandable via SD card, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB storage

In its factory state, Huawei’s MatePad Pro 12.6 has 256 GB of storage, including around 234 GB of free space. In addition to 256 GB of storage, NM cards can be upgraded.

In addition, there is a Type-C USB 3.1 port (USB-C 3.2 Gen. 1) found on the tablet. With the included 3.5 mm jack adapter, it can function as an audio port, as well as allowing peripheral devices to be connected via its OTG port. 

Despite Huawei’s tablet being lacking Google services, it supports Widevine L1 DRM and can thus also play back streams in high definition.

Based on Android 10, Huawei tablet offer MatePad Pro 12.6 runs their HarmonyOS operating system.

The interface doesn’t look much different from a standard Android, nor does it operate that much differently. It does however contain some additional features.

A dock can be arranged at the bottom of the screen so that the top eight frequently used apps appear there. In addition, you can view three recently used apps from the right-hand field that are not in the dock. The app dock also has a mouse-over preview function, which displays the respective app in a small preview window when the mouse pointer is hovered over it.

During testing, the smart pen was the only tool that worked.

The notification area and the control panel on HarmonyOS are separate. Home screens may also contain widgets that are designed to be repeated. The home screen displays, for example, a search field for WPS Office or documents from the preinstalled program.

Since HarmonyOS is blocked by the US embargo, it cannot access Google services.

A browser is the only means of accessing them. The absence of Google Play leaves Huawei to organize its app supply via two other methods: Firstly, it offers downloads through the App Gallery, where several common apps can be found, but obviously it is geared towards the Chinese market.
