Here is the story of a tablet that could have been a reality but seems to have stopped just before that. This is Huawei’s MatePad Pro 12.6.

Now, as GizmoChina reported, an engineering sample has been spotted. online that supports a higher 120Hz refresh rate.
While there is no official mention of the sample above, what is evident is that it served as a test pattern. It is also speculated that the company was indeed making a top-of-the-line model with a higher refresh rate, but the same was put aside due to supply chain issues. It’s also unclear whether the company plans to launch the 120Hz model at any time in the future.
Internal specs of the particular model reveal a Kirin 9000E chipset for the Wi-Fi only version, while the 5G version of the same is powered by the Kirin 9000 chipset. 512 GB storage is available internally with the option to add more. more using the Huawei NM card slot.

Other features of the display include DCI-P3 color gamut, Delta E Color Accuracy Index of less than 0.5, and 1,000,000: 1 contrast ratio.
Keeping the lights on is a massive 10,050mAh battery that is backed up by 40W fast charging in wired mode and 27W fast charging in wireless mode. That aside, the tablet also supports 10W reverse charging. Then there are also the eight onboard speakers which have been tuned by Harman Karon and boast Histen 7.0 sound effects. There is also the four microphone arrangement with noise cancellation technology for clear audio reception even from several meters away.

With a keen interest in technology, I make a point of keeping up to date with the latest developments in the world of tech and gadgets. This includes smartphones or tablets, but even extends to AI and self-driving cars, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like to watch videos, read, listen to music or experiment with different recipes. Cinema is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I will make a film in the future.
