Huawei MatePad Pro gets a new EMUI 10 update as open beta recruitment goes live

A couple of weeks ago, Huawei opened sales for its newest products in China, among them the Huawei MatePad Pro tablets, both Wi-Fi only and LTE models.

The MatePad Pro is the first of its kind. Prior to its launch, all Huawei tablets had the MediaPad moniker. Besides the new name, the slate also became the first in the world with a hole in the display screen to house the selfie camera.

Furthermore, the MatePad Pro is the first tablet to support 5G and also becomes Huawei’s first tablet with a stylus dubbed M-Pen. According to the Chinese company, the M-Pen supports a sensitivity of up to 4096 pressure levels, same as the Galaxy Note 10’s S-Pen.
