Killexams : Huawei smartwatch with built-in earbuds goes global

The Huawei Watch Buds is Huawei’s smartwatch with built-in earbuds, and it just went global. This smartwatch was first announced back in December, in China. Today, Huawei announced its global variant and availability.

The Huawei Watch Buds smartwatch with built-in earbuds goes global

This smartwatch basically has all the benefits of the regular Huawei smartwatch, but with earbuds included on the inside. It’s actually quite impressive how Huawei managed to pull this off, and still keep the battery durability above the competition. Huawei claims you can get three days worth of battery life here. That is considerably lower than on something like the Huawei Watch GT 3 or GT 3 Pro, but above what Samsung offers, for example.

The Huawei Watch Buds smartwatch comes with a magnetic pop-up cover, for when you need to access the earbuds. The watch itself acts as a charger for those earbuds too, of course. The earbuds themselves get magnetized on the inside too.

It features a sharp, AMOLED display

The watch is made out of metal (stainless steel), and there is a button / rotating crown on the right side of it. A 1.43-inch 466 x 466 AMOLED display sits on the front, so Huawei didn’t really cut corners in the display department either.

Huawei says that the watch is 14.99mm thick, which is a feat on its own considering everything that sits on the inside. It also supports wireless charging, and comes with a wireless charging cradle. Speaking of which, a 410mAh battery is included here

The magnetic pop-up cover has been thoroughly tested

Huawei also says that it thoroughly tested this watch, so the pop-up cover has been tested for 100,000 times openings and closings, giving some you some piece of mind. It also endured a 5kg stress test, amongst others.

The earbuds come equipped with the Adaptive Identification Technology, and touch controls. Huawei even managed to include noise cancellation in these small earbuds. On top of that, it included a quad-magnetic full-Range Planar Diaphragm drove. They also support Triple Adaptive EQ.

There are 80 sports modes included here

Now, the watch comes with 80 sports modes, amongst which are 10 professional sports modes. It can also show you your notifications, and much more. All you need to do is grab the Huawei Health app from the AppGallery. Yes, this watch is compatible with both Android and iOS.

The Huawei Watch Buds smartwatch will become available in Europe starting from March 1. It will be available from the Huawei Store, and other authorized e-commerce platforms and retailers. The price will be £449.99 in the UK, while we still don’t have the price in Euros. It will likely be an equivalent of that, or close to it (€‎499.99 perhaps, or something like that).

Killexams : Is China’s Huawei a Threat to U.S. National Security?


One of the world’s leading providers of fifth-generation (5G) mobile technology, Huawei is a Chinese telecommunications giant that has stoked fears of espionage and intellectual property theft in the United States and many other countries. In response, Washington and its allies have imposed sweeping restrictions on Huawei as part of a larger crackdown on Chinese technology companies. 

More From Our Experts

Some experts warn that tensions between Washington and Beijing over technology could lead to a “digital iron curtain,” which would compel foreign governments to decide between doing business with the United States or China.

What is Huawei?

More on:




Technology and Innovation


It is the world’s largest provider of 5G networks and a leader in sales of telecommunications equipment. Based in Shenzhen, China, Huawei sells its products domestically and internationally. In the United States, it has helped provide connectivity in rural areas of Alabama, Colorado, Oklahoma, and other states.

Ren Zhengfei, the company’s billionaire CEO, founded Huawei in 1987. With more than 190,000 employees, according to its website, Huawei claims to be a private company fully owned by its employees, though its precise ownership structure is unknown.

Why is it so controversial?

In accurate years, the United States and several other countries have asserted that the company threatens their national security, saying it has violated international sanctions and stolen intellectual property, and that it could commit cyber espionage. Many U.S. policymakers view Huawei as a commercial extension of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

More From Our Experts

Cyber espionage. The main concern, according to U.S. intelligence agencies, is that the Chinese government could use Huawei to spy. Officials, primarily in the United States but also in Australia and several other countries, point to intentionally vague Chinese intelligence laws that could be used to force Huawei to hand over data to the Chinese government. (The United States has not publicly provided evidence that this has happened.) There are also concerns that Huawei’s 5G infrastructure could contain backdoors that allow the Chinese government to collect and centralize massive quantities of data and give Beijing the necessary access to attack communications networks and public utilities. In 2022, an FBI investigation found that Huawei equipment can be used to disrupt U.S. military communications, including those about the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

Congress began receiving warnings about Huawei as early as 2012, when a U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence report [PDF] concluded that using equipment made by Huawei and ZTE, another Chinese telecommunications company, could “undermine core U.S. national security interests.” In 2018, six U.S. intelligence chiefs, including the directors of the CIA and FBI, cautioned Americans against using Huawei products, warning that the company could conduct “undetected espionage.”

More on:




Technology and Innovation


At the heart of Washington’s concerns is 5G, the latest technology standard for cellular networks, which provides faster obtain speeds for smartphones, connects devices in smart cities, and supports autonomous vehicles and robots. “5G is a different type of risk versus 4G or 3G. It’s much harder to separate the core from the periphery,” says CFR’s Adam Segal. “Once you have those risks, you have to trust the company much more. But it is difficult to trust Huawei, given the relationship between companies and the Communist Party.”

Intellectual property theft. U.S. companies and global telecom firms have for years accused Huawei of stealing trade secrets, starting with Cisco’s 2003 lawsuit alleging that its source code appeared in Huawei products. (The suit was later settled.) In 2017, a U.S. jury found Huawei guilty of stealing intellectual property from T-Mobile, and in 2020, the U.S. Justice Department charged Huawei with racketeering conspiracy and conspiracy to steal trade secrets. According to the indictment, these violations allowed Huawei to “drastically cut its research and development costs and associated delays, giving the company a significant and unfair competitive advantage.” 

Trade violations. The United States claims that Huawei has violated sanctions on Iran and North Korea. A federal indictment unsealed in January 2019 against Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer and Ren’s daughter, said that Huawei defrauded banks in order to do business with Iran and obstructed justice in the process by destroying evidence. Meng was detained in Canada in 2018 at the request of the United States, which was seeking her extradition. In 2021, she reached a deferred prosecution agreement with the U.S. Justice Department, which later dropped the charges against her.

How much sway does Beijing have over tech companies?

The government has considerable sway over Chinese private companies through heavy regulation, including the requirement that they establish CCP branches within them, and state-backed investment. Executives of many of the biggest companies are party members, including Alibaba cofounder Jack Ma and Huawei founder Ren, who served as an engineer in the People’s Liberation Army during the Cultural Revolution.

Under President Xi Jinping, the lines between public and private have become even more blurred. Experts have observed that the CCP is working to boost its influence over private industry, especially tech companies. In accurate years, state-run companies and local governments have invested more in private firms. Foreign news organizations have also reported that the government could start pressuring tech companies to offer the party direct ownership stakes and give party members even greater roles in management. While there is no evidence that this has happened at Huawei, Beijing has taken a stake in an entity owned by ByteDance, the parent of video-sharing monolith TikTok.

Some experts and U.S. officials also point to vague Chinese laws that could be used to force Huawei to help the government with intelligence gathering. For example, the National Security Law [PDF], enacted in 2015, states that citizens and enterprises have the “responsibility and obligation to maintain national security.” The 2017 National Intelligence Law [PDF] declared that Chinese companies must “support, assist, and cooperate with” China’s intelligence-gathering authorities. These laws have prompted additional U.S. concerns that TikTok could share user data with the Chinese government. 

Huawei has distanced itself from the CCP, repeatedly asserting that its equipment has never been used, and will never be used, to spy. In January 2019, Ren said he “would never harm the interest of my customers” and that Huawei would not answer government requests for intelligence. In May 2018, Huawei commissioned a report [PDF] from a Chinese law firm supporting its argument that it cannot be forced to spy, but other lawyers in China and around the world said the law has never been tested. The Chinese government has also gone to bat for Huawei, saying it would “take all necessary measures to safeguard” Chinese companies.

How did Huawei become so dominant?

Huawei became the world’s largest telecommunications company over three decades, reporting $138 billion in revenue in 2020, a 12 percent jump from the previous year. This success has helped drive suspicion that the Chinese government has played a more significant role in the company in accurate years than its leaders have let on.

In 1996, both the government and military began treating Huawei as an official “national champion,” a status reserved for firms that bolster China’s strategic aims. The move highlighted a shift in official policy. From then on, Beijing explicitly supported domestic telecom companies—and Huawei even more than others [PDF]—to prevent foreign domination of the industry. The Chinese government ensured Huawei had easy access to financing and high levels of government subsidies—up to $75 billion in state support since the company was founded. 

These underpinnings have allowed Huawei to price its network equipment below foreign competitors’ rates; a European Commission investigation found that Huawei has underbid its competitors by up to 70 percent. Experts said that Huawei’s prices would not have even covered the cost of producing their parts without subsidies. Chinese state banks also provide countries with low-interest loans to use Huawei’s equipment.

Huawei says its low prices are the result of technological expertise—a claim with some merit, according to industry experts. Huawei’s annual research and development (R&D) budget is among the world’s largest, and Ren says his firm spends more on it than most publicly listed firms can. At over $22 billion in 2021, Huawei’s R&D expenditures rank alongside those of Alphabet (Google’s parent company) and Amazon; when R&D is measured as a percentage of sales, Huawei’s expenditures are proportionally double.

What restrictions has the United States imposed?

U.S. government limitations on Huawei have been ongoing since 2017, when Congress restricted some Department of Defense networks from using Huawei or ZTE equipment. In 2018, the Donald Trump administration banned more U.S. federal agencies from using the telecom giants’ equipment. (Huawei sued the United States over the restriction.) That same year, following pressure from regulators, AT&T walked away from a deal to sell Huawei’s smartphones. 

U.S. actions against Huawei continued to build throughout the Trump presidency: in 2019, Trump signed an executive order prohibiting U.S. companies from doing business with Huawei, and the Commerce Department added the company to its “entity list,” restricting it from buying U.S. goods. Shortly after, Google said it would restrict Huawei’s access to its products, including its Android operating system; a new Huawei phone unveiled later in the year didn’t come with Android apps.

The department cracked down further in May 2020, issuing new rules to block foreign semiconductor manufacturers that use U.S. machines and software from shipping products to Huawei without a license. Prior to the bans, Huawei said it relied on U.S. software, microchips, specialty lasers, and other products for one-third of its supply chain, amounting to $11 billion. More than one hundred Huawei affiliates have been added to the commerce department’s entity list since then, crippling the company’s ability to obtain critical U.S. goods. 

Other government agencies have followed suit. In November 2019, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to designate Huawei and ZTE as national security threats, which prevents U.S. internet providers from using federal funds to purchase the tech companies’ equipment. Huawei filed a legal challenge, but the FCC’s decision went into effect in June 2020. That same year, Congress provided $1.9 billion to the FCC for the agency to remove Huawei equipment from existing U.S. networks. The Trump administration also imposed visa restrictions on Huawei employees it says contribute to human rights abuses committed by the Chinese government, including against Uyghurs in China’s Xinjiang region

What has President Biden done?

President Joe Biden has upheld restrictions against Huawei and introduced new bans that have further hamstrung the company. In November 2021, Biden signed a bill aimed at preventing Huawei and ZTE from receiving equipment-making licenses from U.S. regulators, including the FCC. A year later, in November 2022, the FCC adopted new rules that prohibited the sale of some communications equipment made by Huawei or ZTE in the United States, citing “unacceptable” national security risk. And in January 2023, the Biden administration stopped providing licenses for U.S. companies to export goods to Huawei. Biden has also taken such measures beyond Huawei, signing legislation that precludes any Chinese manufacturer from obtaining chips or chipmaking equipment made with U.S. parts anywhere in the world.

Despite the restrictions, the Commerce Department has allowed some business activities that it says do not pose significant risks to U.S. national security. Since 2017, the Trump and Biden administrations have allowed over $60 billion [PDF] in transactions between Huawei and U.S. firms. 

Some critics say that while the restrictions have handicapped Huawei, they would be even more effective if combined with a U.S.-led alternative. “A principal reason that the United States has not had more success in persuading countries not to use Huawei equipment is that it cannot offer an alternative,” CFR’s David Sacks writes. “The United States does not and will not have a company that is competitive in the full stack of 5G equipment.”

 To get more countries to wean off Huawei, Sacks argues that the United States should finance European competitors’ 5G networks and develop open radio access networks, a system that would allow multiple companies to provide different components of a singular 5G network. Meanwhile, it should fund research and development to better compete in sixth-generation (6G) technology, which is expected to replace 5G within fifteen years.

How has Huawei responded to the bans?

It’s not just the United States that has banned Huawei. Washington has pressured its allies to follow suit, even threatening to stop sharing intelligence with countries that use Huawei. The countries of the so-called Five Eyes intelligence alliance—The United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom—have banned or are rolling out bans of Huawei. Other U.S. partners, such as Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, France, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, and Sweden have restricted the use of Huawei equipment in the construction of their 5G networks. 

Experts say that the bans have caused Huawei to reprioritize its domestic market due to a shortage of international business. In 2020, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the world’s largest chip supplier, halted business with Huawei, citing U.S. export controls. TSMC had supplied over 90 percent of Huawei’s smartphone chips. Because of the semiconductor restrictions, Huawei has had “to exit whole lines of business, because [they] don’t have access to advanced semiconductors because of these export controls,” CFR’s Sacks says. While Huawei accumulated a limited number of semiconductors before the bans took effect, it reportedly ran out in late 2022. The shortage has hurt Huawei’s bottom line: in 2021, the company reported $95 billion in revenue—a 23 percent drop from 2019 levels.

Why are some countries resisting the bans?

Other countries, especially those participating in China’s Belt and Road Initiative, are already using or have agreed to use Huawei’s equipment to build 5G networks.

Many have been attracted by the company’s ability to provide high-quality networks for low prices. Huawei is helping Malaysia and Russia build their 5G networks, and it has signed contracts to build 5G networks for a number of countries in Latin America.

Authorities in potential markets that have not ruled out using Huawei, including several European countries, argue that security risks are inherent in all 5G networks, regardless of the supplier. They acknowledge, however, that the risks are higher for Huawei. Officials in these countries say they prefer to keep their auctions for 5G construction open to all firms and will tighten security measures to minimize any risks. 

Analysts say U.S. policymakers have not come up with a better option for low-income countries, especially as 5G networks are dominated by just three firms: Huawei, the Finnish firm Nokia, and the Swedish firm Ericsson. Even after U.S. restrictions went into place, many low-income countries still chose Huawei, which is frequently the cheapest option, to build their 5G networks.

 “We still haven't really addressed the larger issue, which is that developing countries and other countries have connectivity demands and Chinese tech is cheap and reliable,” says CFR’s Segal.

Killexams : Huawei turns to patents for a lifeline — including those in the U.S.

Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei saw revenue decline in 2021 for the first time on record.

Bloomberg | Bloomberg | Getty Images

BEIJING — Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei is turning to patents for a lifeline as the company seeks to forge a path forward in advanced chip technology — the prized tech which the U.S. is trying to cut off from China.

In 2022, Huawei announced it signed more than 20 new or extended licensing agreements for its patents. Most were with automakers, for 4G and LTE wireless technology, the company said.

Mercedes Benz, Audi, BMW and at least one U.S. automaker were among the licensees, said Huawei's global intellectual property head Alan Fan. He said he wasn't able to say which American company.

Huawei has more on the way — and filed a record number of more than 11,000 patent applications with the U.S. in 2022, according to IFI Claims Patent Services. Their analysis showed just under half typically get approved each year.

But the sheer number of patents filed meant Huawei ranked fourth last year by the number of patent grants in the U.S., IFI said. Samsung was first, followed by IBM and TSMC.

The Netherlands 'holds the key' to effectiveness of chip export controls on China, says analyst

"The U.S. is still a substantial market that everybody wants to have a part of," said IFI Chief Executive Mike Baycroft. "They want to make sure when they're developing those technologies that they're protecting those IP [intellectual property] rights for the U.S. market for the European market."

Over the last two years, Huawei's U.S. patents have increased the most in areas related to image compression, digital information transmission and wireless communication networks, according to IFI.

The U.S. government put Huawei on a blacklist in 2018 that restricted its ability to buy from American suppliers. By October 2022, the U.S. made it clear that no Americans should work with Chinese businesses on high-end semiconductor tech.

The potential of patents

Huawei's revenue dropped for the first time on record in 2021, and the consumer division that includes smartphones reported sales plunged nearly 50% to 243.4 billion yuan ($36.08 billion).

For Huawei, licensing its patents to other companies has the potential to claw back a bit of that revenue.

Alex Liang, partner at Anjie & Broad in Beijing, pointed out that having ceased operations in certain business areas allows the company to realize patent revenue that previously existed primarily on paper.

"Huawei's situation is similar to Nokia's when the first generation iPhone came out," Liang said. "Nokia was quickly losing market share to Apple and lots of their patents no longer [had] to be licensed in exchange for other licenses to protect their phone business."

Companies that share technical areas with Huawei ... should all beware that a giant patent monetization player is jumping into their respective pool and will make a splash.

Nokia generated 1.59 billion euros ($1.73 billion) in sales last year from patent licensing — about 6% of its total revenue. The company said in 2022 it signed "over 50 new patent license agreements across our smartphone, automotive, consumer electronics, and IoT [Internet of Things] licensing programs."

Nokia and Huawei extended their patent licensing agreement in December. Huawei also announced licensing deals with South Korea's Samsung and China's Oppo.

"As far as I know, Huawei is aggressively pushing for the monetization of its patents," Liang said.

"It is one of the most important [key performance indicators] of their IP department, if not yet the single most important," he said.

"So any other companies that share technical areas with Huawei — such as telecommunication, phones, IoT, automobiles, PC, cloud service, and so on — should all beware that a giant patent monetization player is jumping into their respective pool and will make a splash."

Huawei pushed back at the idea it was building a business in patent monetization.

The company's IP head Fan said his department is "a corporate function, not a business unit," and that it redirects royalties to the research departments that filed the patents to fund further research.

"We actively support patent pools and similar platforms, which license patent not just for us, but also for other innovators at the same time," Fan said in a statement.

The company previously said it expected $1.2 billion to $1.3 billion in revenue from licensing its intellectual property between 2019 and 2021. Huawei did not break down specific figures, and only said it met its intellectual property revenue expectations for 2021.

A business of that size would still be a tiny fraction of the company's overall revenue. Huawei said in December it expects 2022 revenue of 636.9 billion yuan, little changed from a year ago. Cloud and connected cars are other business areas the company has sought to develop.

Huawei has "been floundering around since the demise of their handset business," said Paul Triolo, Senior Vice President for China and Technology Policy Lead at Albright Stonebridge Group. "I don't think they had a choice in terms of sort of boosting their licensing revenue."

"The question is what do they do for 6G [in] five years?" he said. "Are they still going to play a patent game? They can't really manufacture the equipment. They're sort of stuck if they can't figure out the semiconductor piece in terms of going forward."

Still, Huawei said it spent 22.4% of 2021 revenue on research and development, bringing total category spending to more than $120 billion over the last decade.

Progress in chip tech?

Some of the research is in semiconductor manufacturing. Huawei has filed for a patent in the highly specialized area of lithography technology used for making advanced chips, according to a disclosure late last year on the China Intellectual Property Administration website.

"It's significant in the sense that each individual piece of a complicated technology like EUV [extreme ultraviolet] is not that difficult to sort of make progress on," Triolo said. "Turning that into a commercial system at scale that can boost commercially is a huge, huge task."

Right now, Netherlands-based ASML is the only company in the world that can make the extreme ultraviolet lithography machines needed to make advanced chips.

Not only did it take ASML about 30 years to develop EUV on its own, but the company had the benefit of unrestricted access to thousands of suppliers and international industry groups, Triolo said. "What China really lacks is these international consortia."

But he didn't rule out the possibility that China's national champion could help Beijing build up its semiconductor industry.

"Huawei has a very capable group of engineers," Triolo said. It's "probably a five-to-seven year process to build something commercially viable — only if everything goes well, if there's substantial funding. The Chinese government is going to have to step up here."

Other Chinese companies are also pouring resources into intellectual property.

IFI's rankings of companies' and their subsidiaries' global patent holdings showed a number of Chinese giants among the top 15, including the state research organization Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Appliance companies Midea and Gree also ranked high globally, among South Korean and Japanese heavyweights, the data showed.

"The rise in Chinese innovation has been in plain sight for a long time," said IFI CEO Baycroft. "Why shouldn't we expect that China is innovating today like everybody else? Like Japan, like Germany, everybody's in this game. It's not just the U.S."

Tue, 14 Feb 2023 10:08:00 -0600 Killexams : HUAWEI MatePad and HUAWEI MatePad SE - The ideal tablets for entertainment and learning

Smartphones have made it possible to enjoy movies and shows wherever we are. But their small screens do not do justice to movies that are meant to be watched on the big screen. Tablets like the HUAWEI MatePad SE and HUAWEI MatePad offer better alternatives to catch up with your shows and movies even while on the go. Besides the expansive displays, these tablets also offer immersive sound, which is key for a well-rounded entertainment tablet. But that’s not all they do. They also come with some pretty cool Super Device features that make for a seamless experience. Let’s dive deep into the features of both of these tablets.

HUAWEI MatePad and HUAWEI MatePad SE

Immerse yourself in action with 10.4-inch displays

Both the HUAWEI MatePad SE and HUAWEI MatePad have one thing that helps them stand out as ideal entertainment tablets — a large, high resolution display. The display size and resolution are identical in both tablets as they sport 10.4-inch displays with 2K resolution. The high resolution displays let you watch your favourite movies with all their crisp details. The thin bezels around the Eye-Comfort 2K HUAWEI FullView Display give the HUAWEI MatePad SE a high screen-to-body ratio of 83%, making for an immersive viewing experience. And it is even higher on the HUAWEI MatePad at 84% with its 10.4-inch 2K HUAWEI FullView Display.  

Both tablets go to great lengths to ensure eye comfort, as well. Having passed the TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light and Flicker Free Certifications, they are proven to effectively eliminate screen flickers and reduce blue light emissions. And on top of that, the HUAWEI MatePad SE can adjust the display brightness in real time based on the ambient light with smooth luminance transitions to save your eyes from being dazzled.

Big sound in small body

Sound does not come as an afterthought in either of these tablets. In fact, the sound is front and centre. In the case of the HUAWEI MatePad SE, it packs in two powerful speakers while also managing to achieve a slim form factor. Attention has been paid to the placement of the speakers, as well. They are located symmetrically on either side to provide a balanced stereo field with resonant bass and detailed high ends. The tablet also brings in some software wizardry to elevate the audio performance in the form of scene-adaptive Huawei Histen 8.0. The sound effects are pristine and detailed.

It doesn’t stop at that, though. Depending on whether you are playing games, listening to podcasts or watching movies, the sound can intelligently optimise itself to give you the best experience. The tablet uses a bottom-layer algorithm to intelligently identify app types, automatically adjust the speaker sound effects, and optimise for different scenarios. Thanks to the unique centre-channel human voice extraction algorithm that can extract and enhance the human voice. That means you won’t be annoyed by unintelligible dialogue while watching movies.

The HUAWEI MatePad goes a step further in terms of sound quality with its quad-channel quad-speaker system, providing you with the ultimate cinema-grade multimedia experience. It has customised high-powered speakers that support 60% more intense vibrations than traditional speakers, ensuring more powerful and deeper bass. The HUAWEI MatePad also benefits from the professional tuning of Harman Kardon, which has calibrated and optimised the tablet’s audio output. This tablet also focuses on providing a seamless experience during video conferences and online classes. It has excellent sound pickup and noise reduction characteristics, adopting three microphones and Huawei’s self-developed noise cancellation technology.

Smooth and intuitive interactions 

The HUAWEI MatePad SE has some extremely handy features that make interactions smooth and seamless. For instance, using the tablet, you can manage your devices and connections from a single place and even share devices between accounts, making cross-device operations easier than ever. The tablet also offers a seamless user experience with its stackable Service Widgets of the same size, and combos of Service Widgets and shortcuts of different sizes, for easier access to your favourite content and features. The all-new Multi-Window feature turns the tablet into a standout multitasking tool by supporting up to four concurrent tasks. The new and improved App Multiplier feature allows you to open up to four ongoing tasks within a single app.

The HUAWEI MatePad, similar to the HUAWEI MatePad SE, supports the drag-to-connect, Multi-Window, and App Multiplier features. But on top of those, it offers support for the second-gen HUAWEI M-Pencil and HUAWEI Smart Keyboard. And this gives you a wealth of possibilities. The realistic writing experience makes it an excellent choice for working, studying, and even creative tasks. The HUAWEI Smart Keyboard supports Bluetooth, and the 1.3mm key travel provides a comfortable and responsive typing experience, even when typing with two hands for an extended time. The HUAWEI MatePad supports Tablet-PC Multi-screen Collaboration in three different modes — Mirror Mode, Extend Mode and Collaborate Mode — making the tablet all the more versatile.

Bring learning and fun together with Kids Corner on HUAWEI MatePad SE

Tablets can be a great way to keep kids entertained. However, as parents, you should also be careful to ensure their safety. Luckily, the Kids Corner on the HUAWEI MatePad SE makes it a kid friendly tablet. It provides kids with rich content for learning and entertainment while also making it easy for parents to control what content kids have access to and their screen time. Parents can set different settings for weekdays and weekends. Children can use their passwords to unlock the screen and directly enter Kids Corner without affecting your usage. Kids Corner also has a Multi-layered Eye Protection feature that will help the kids avoid straining their eyes. 

Durable, light, and easy to hold

Young kids might not be as careful with their devices as grown-ups. They might often drop the tablet or accidentally sit on it. But as a tablet designed for everyone in the family, the HUAWEI MatePad SE is built to be easy to use and durable. It has undergone strict drop tests to make sure that it can survive such accidents. It has a sturdy middle frame that can maintain its shape under stress. To provide a comfortable grip for children as well as adults, the tablet has a micro-curved design, which also makes the tablet look even thinner. As a result, the tablet can be held for a long time without tiring your arms, whether at home or on the go.

Likewise, the HUAWEI MatePad also features a micro-curved frame that makes the device look thinner and allows for a more comfortable grip, and it weighs only 450 grams. Just 10 grams more than the HUAWEI MatePad SE.

Both HUAWEI MatePad SE and HUAWEI MatePad check all the boxes for family entertainment tablets. At the top of the list are the large and vibrant screens and outstanding sound quality. That said, the HUAWEI MatePad SE has some features like the Kids Corner that make it well suited for young children. On the other hand, the HUAWEI MatePad is a tablet you can also use for productivity and creativity, as you can use it with the HUAWEI M-Pencil and HUAWEI Smart Keyboard.

Price & Availability in Saudi Arabia

The HUAWEI MatePad SE is available in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at as a starting price of 699 SAR from Huawei’s online platforms as well as certified retailers.

The HUAWEI MatePad is also available in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at a price of 1099 SAR.
