Huawei is innovating the e-book game with the new MatePad Paper.
The new Huawei MatePad Paper is essentially an advanced e-book reader that has tablet-like features. But first, let’s talk about the display. Unlike other MatePad devices, this one has a 10.3-inch e-ink display with an impressive 86.3% screen-to-body ratio, which is much better than most e-ink tablets and their chunky bezels.
So why go with this color-less panel? E-ink displays have that paper-like appeal, perfect for reading e-books and other content. The display can also intelligently adjust the refresh rate depending on the content you’re viewing.
The tablet also works with Huawei’s 2nd-gen M-Pencil and attaches to the tab itself with magnets. Huawei boasts that it can provide a paper-like writing experience. The pen also takes advantage of the multitasking and productivity features of the new HarmonyOS 2.0.
Speaking of productivity, the device’s notes app comes with templates to let you get started faster. You can also put sound recording while taking notes, convert handwritten notes to text, encrypt notes, and easily transfer content from a smartphone or MateBook.
The MatePad Paper also comes with dual speakers for audiobooks. Book translations are also available.
For the specs heads out there, the MatePad paper is powered by an unnamed hexa-core processor, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It also has a fingerprint scanner, WiFi 6+, 22.5W charging, and a 3,625mAh battery that can apparently last for up to 28 days.
The Huawei MatePad Paper has a price of EUR499 (around Php28,600). No word yet if it’s coming to the Philippines.
