As the world starts to adapt to the new normal of doing everything on the internet as we work from home and study from home, we’ll need the appropriate tools to ensure that we are getting the best experience possible. That’s where the new HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6-inch comes in handy.
Even in our review of the HUAWEI MatePad Pro last year, we stated that it can replace laptops in some cases while providing even more functionality.
The new HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6-inch will definitely boost your productivity as it gives you both performance and flexibility. I mean, even we are technically in a lockdown and we can’t go out, we can make a change of scenery at home – maybe working in the room office for a day, then at the living room the next day. Forbes does agree that changing your scenery can boost creativity too.
But, changing the scenery is only part of the story. The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6-inch further elevates your productivity doing these:
1. Expansive accessories
To get the best possible experience that can literally replace a laptop is by pairing the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6-inch with the HUAWEI Smart Magnetic Keyboard and Bluetooth Mouse, and we literally get a laptop experience alongside a touchscreen, too.
To ensure the user experience is great, there is a Bottom Dock introduced that displays recently-used apps alongside frequently-used apps.
There is also a new Service Widgets that lets you create widgets out of apps so you can directly get information or into some specific tasks directly from the home screen. For example – having all the to-dos shown on the home screen.
2. Connecting with other devices
If you have a laptop and also the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6-inch, then why not link up both screens together to get most out of what you have?
The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6-inch has Mirror Mode which mirrors the tablet’s display on the tablet. Here’s a perfect example of how the Mirror Mode works – drawing on the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6-inch using the M-Pencil will be reflected on the laptop screen in real-time!
As for Extend Mode, you can link up both displays and convert the tablet into your laptop’s secondary screen. This literally boosts productivity – and I have also talked about why I personally use two monitors to work. This allows me to prepare my big presentation on one screen, and have references on another screen.
There’s also a Collaborate Mode which allows both devices to work differently, but your laptop’s keyboard and mouse control both devices. Files can be dragged between the two devices as though there’s an invisible cable connecting both devices together.
3. Multitask with the new and improved App Multiplier
When the new App Multiplier is active, you can swipe on empty spaces on either side of the screen to scroll through the app content up and down, without needing to
While showing an app in a single window with the new App Multiplier active, users can now swipe on the empty spaces on either side of the tablet screen to scroll up and down to navigate app content, without letting go of their grip on the tablet.
And as the name suggests – you can then open two different instances of the same app side by side. This makes cross-referencing different emails on the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6-inch much easier!
4. New HUAWEI M-Pencil (2nd generation)
Introducing, the new HUAWEI M-Pencil. This new active stylus comes with a transparent tip design with a platinum-coated nib and a rounded hexagonal shape for the body so that it is comfortable to hold and use for a long period of time.
The new M-Pencil (2nd generation) also got an upgrade to a total of 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and supports tilted writing so that you can literally treat it like a real pencil. Combined with the 9ms latency that’s barely noticeable, this provides one of the best digital experience writing and drawing experience.
But, this FreeScript functionality also works for shapes too. You can use Instant Shape and Instant Table to draw these shapes, then the software will automatically change it to the shape that you want to draw.
This new M-Pencil also comes with gesture support too – so you can double-tap to switch tools in supported apps. For example, while using the pen to draw or write, you can just double-tap and it changes to eraser mode instantly.
