Huawei MatePad 11 launched in Germany with a 120Hz LCD screen and high-end Qualcomm SoC for EUR 399
Huawei has launched an affordable tablet alongside its high-end MatePad Pro called the MatePad 11. It can make for an excellent home entertainment device, but lack of Google Play Services could be a tad disappointing for many. Nonetheless, its EUR 399 starting price makes it an attractive buy for those on a budget. It will go on sale alongside its higher-specced sibling on June 13.
As its name somewhat suggests, the Huawei MatePad 11 ships with an 11-inch IPS LCD panel. It has a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels (16:10 aspect ratio) and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Other features include 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour gamut and an average brightness of 500 nits. It has an 85% screen-to-body ratio, made apparent by the MatePad 11's noticeable bezels.
Under the hood, the Huawei MatePad 11 runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ chipset. Previous rumours told us that it would pack a Snapdragon 870. They weren't entirely wrong, given that it is an incremental update over the Snapdragon 865+. One can configure the tablet with up to 6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of storage. Further expansion is possible via an off-the-shelf micro SD card.
The Huawei MatePad 11 has one 13MP sensor at the back and an 8MP selfie camera module. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS and a USB Type-C port. The tablet draws power from a 7,250mAh battery. Huawei includes a 22.5W charging brick in the retail packaging, alongside a second-generation M-Pencil.
