Huawei specifically installed a Snapdragon 888 in the MatePad Air. Despite Qualcomm’s subsequent announcement of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Gen 2 series, the Snapdragon 888’s Cortex-X1, Cortex-A78, and Cortex-A55 CPU cores, as well as its Adreno 660 GPU, continue to make it a powerful chipset.
The MatePad Air is also slightly smaller than the MateBook E 2023, which Huawei also unveiled today, with an 11.5-inch IPS display. The MatePad Air, on the other hand, has a display with a higher resolution, operating at 2,880 x 1,840 pixels, 291 PPI, and an 87% screen-to-body ratio. To further provide a fluid viewing experience, the display can adjust its refresh rate between 30 Hz and 144 Hz as necessary.
Huawei equips the MatePad Air with an 8,300 mAh battery, an 8 MP front camera, and a 13 MP rear camera. The tablet also features four speakers and four microphones, as well as 40 W of wired charging.
Price & Availability
Huawei has only launched the MatePad Air in a few selected countries, where it starts at $411 with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Alternatively, the tablet is available with up to 12 GB of RAM, 512 GB of storage, and an LTE modem for $640. Neither configuration comes with the tablet’s stylus or keyboard though, which Huawei sells separately. It is available on Huawei’s official website.
