Today’s tablet market is filled with many different brands that offer various models with different functions and capabilities. This can make it hard for consumers to find the perfect tablet. In addition, among this ever-growing list of options, very few of these devices are able to live up to consumers’ demands for a device that offers high entertainment value while remaining sleek, lightweight, compact and of course, affordable. However, the newly-launched HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet answers all of these demands, and is the ideal slimline entertainment companion that is ready to go wherever you are.
Sleek and lightweight
Weighing only 310g, even lighter than a bottle of Coke, the sleek HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet has been created to fit comfortably in one hand, leaving the other hand completely free. This comfort is enhanced by the device’s curved design that blends the edges into a curve, creating an easy-to-carry frame, allowing users to enjoy the vivid 8-inch display wherever they are.
This ergonomic design means that you can easily multitask by holding the tablet and video chatting with your loved ones in one hand, while using your other hand to sip on your cup of coffee. The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet’s lightweight nature also makes it extremely easy to pop into your bag if you feel like taking it with you to your favourite café to catch up on your weekly series, or enjoy a good read with the eBook mode that displays content in a paper-like effect and also ensures eye protection. Either way, the 80% screen-to-body ratio will immerse you in an unrivalled viewing experience.
Despite its compact size, the HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet packs an octa-core chipset with a main frequency of 2.0 GHz. This means you don’t have to worry about your tablet lagging while running multiple applications at once.
This powerful processor is complemented by a large 5100mAh battery that lets you play 12 hours of videos and can be used for three days from one charge. And if you don’t watch videos on your tablet or use high power consumption apps, the device can last up to a staggering 600 hours on standby, which is a lifesaver in our country, where loadshedding can be implemented when we least expect it.
Children’s virtual playground and parents’ assistant
The compact and lightweight design makes the tablet perfect for little hands, giving parents a much-needed break, whether in the house or when they’re on the go. The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet is preloaded with the Kids Corner app, a virtual playground that allows children to learn and play while enjoying the benefits of a smart device.
The platform not only aims to create an exclusive learning and entertainment space for children but also ensures that parents can easily monitor their child’s tablet usage. Designed to help children develop healthier technology habits, settings can be easily modified to limit the number of times a day and for how long your child is allowed to use his or her tablet, as well as enabling rest periods.
A travel companion
The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet’s sleek design makes it the perfect travel companion. Simply slip the Deepsea Blue HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet into your bag to provide hours of entertainment while travelling and immerse yourself in that movie you have been meaning to watch.
Intuitive experience by EMUI10
The new HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet runs on the latest version of EMUI, EMUI10, which features improved system response speeds so you can launch or switch apps smoothly and seamlessly.
Usually only high-end tablets provide facial recognition for unlocking, so you will be thrilled to know that the HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet also supports Facial Unlock. Every time the user holds the tablet to eye level, the sensor instantly reads the face and unlocks the system for your convenience.
