Huawei MatePad 10.4″ Gets Updated with Kirin 820 5G for P22k


At present, Huawei Philippines is selling the MatePad 10.4 mid-range tablet for Php20,990. Not a full two months have passed, the company announces the same MatePad but with Kirin 820 chipset that enables 5G connectivity. Coincidentally, Huawei launched its tablet a day after Apple released its 8th-gen iPad and iPad Air (2020). Though more powerful than the latest MatePad, they don’t come with 5G. Going back to Huawei’s newest mid-range tablet, it comes in Fritillary White and Night Ash colors and will go on sale starting September 23 in China for CNY 3,199(~Php22,900).

When it comes to specs and build, the MatePad 5G is the same as the MatePad 4G. However, you can expect slightly better performance out of the chipset. Additionally, the charging brick gets a slight upgrade from 18W to 22.5W, with Huawei claiming the battery life can last up to 12.5 hours. There’s no word yet if the company will launch its 5G tablet in other countries, but even if it did, most of you might have a tough time using a non-Google supported device. While the Petal Search app has proven to be the best alternative the company can provide in its post-Google era, service incompatibilities and consistent updates can spoil the experience.
