Huawei MatePad SE: 10.1-inch tablet released with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a Kirin 710A chipset
Huawei has introduced the MatePad SE, another affordable tablet with a relatively compact design. Equipped with a 10.1-inch panel, the MatePad SE is a touch smaller than the MatePad 10.4 and the MatePad 11, which Huawei released in April 2020 and June 2021, respectively. Accordingly, the MatePad SE has a more diminutive footprint than its MatePad siblings at 240 x 159 x 7.9 mm and 450 g.
Unsurprisingly, Huawei has made a few savings in several areas, including the MatePad SE's display. Still, the tablet has a 1,920 x 1,200-pixel panel with a 16:10 aspect ratio, which corresponds to a 224 PPI and a 77.4% screen-to-body ratio. Elsewhere, the MatePad SE relies on the lesser Kirin 710A, a 14 nm chipset with a Mali-G51 MP4 GPU that Huawei complements with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
By default, the MatePad SE comes with a Wi-Fi only modem and costs CNY 1,499 (~US$226). However, Huawei also sells an LTE model with the same memory configuration for CNY 1,699 (~US$256). Predictably, Huawei ships the MatePad SE with HarmonyOS 2 rather than EMUI 12. Huawei has not mentioned whether it plans to sell the MatePad SE outside China, but it does sell some tablets outside its home market.
