The 3C certification is indicating an imminent release, but initial availability will most likely be restricted to China. Besides the 5G connectivity and 40 W fast charging listed in the 3C certificate, the new Huawei flagship tablet is rumored to feature the Kirin 9000 SoC and bigger 12-inch screens.

MySmartPrice recently identified the upcoming MatePad Pro 2 tablet from Huawei in a 3C listing. According to the Chinese certification site, the model number for this tablet is WGR-AN19, and the database entry also mentions that the device will feature 5G connectivity and  40 W fast charging. Huawei plans to market this new tablet as a flagship alternative to Apple’s iPad Pro 12.9 and Samsung’s Tab S7+, but we are not yet sure if it is going to be available outside of China.

More spec details for the new Huawei tablet come via the Weibo forums, from trusted leaker Digital Chat Station. Apparently,the WGR in the model number stands for “Wanger” and Huawei will be using two different screens: one produced by Huaxin with a 12.6-inch IPS panel and another with a 12.2-inch Samsung OLED. Both versions are supposed to feature high refresh rates (most likely 120 Hz or even higher). Additionally, Digital Chat Station mentions that the tablet should be powered by the 5 nm Kirin 9000 SoC

Hopefully, Huawei will also fix some of the shortcomings found on the first gen model like the absence of the audio jack and the limited software functionality. As of now, Huawei is still facing restrictions from Google’s Mobile Services, and some apps may still be missing on the second iteration. While the MatePad Pro never made it to the U.S. market, it did get launched in some European countries, including the UK, so there is hope that the new version could still be available outside of China later this year.
