The other feature of the MatePad is its 8-megapixel rear camera that comes with autofocus. Meanwhile, its front camera is another 8-megapixel lens.
Huawei markets the MatePad as an educational resource. That is why, it comes with various learning resources and a user interface that’s mainly for the said purpose. Just to add, the tablet also has four Harman Kardon-tuned speakers and four microphones. It also uses various multimedia features for easier virtual learning.
Since the tablet’s main purpose is for reading, Huawei MatePad also comes with special reading mode which produces a monochrome e-paper experience. Furthermore, it monitors the user’s viewing distance and posture.
The software on the Huawei MatePad also has a multi-window support for other EMUI 10.1 devices. It also support Huawei’s M-pencil stylus. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have Google Mobile Service.
