Huawei MatePad Pro 11 (2022) review.

to introduce

The 2022 MatePad Pro 11, released this summer, brings some very welcome updates to Huawei’s high-end tablet lineup. The 11 in the name is the diagonal of the display, down from 10.8 on last year’s smaller Pro, but it’s now an OLED display, just like 2021’s Pro 12.6.

The Snapdragon 888 chip replaces the SD870 in the cellular-connected version we reviewed here, and you now have an additional ultra-wide camera on the back. It’s all wrapped up in what Huawei calls the thinnest and lightest 11-inch tablet ever.

We’re calling it the MatePad Pro 11 (2022) in our specs to try and keep things as clear as possible, but Huawei doesn’t use the model year in its press materials. Technically, it’s the only MatePad Pro to date with an 11-inch screen, but last year’s MatePad 11 (not Pro) blew us away and next year will likely bring a successor, so the Pro 11 (2022) it should be as unique and recognizable both now and in the future as this MatePad we have here. Well, minus the chipset/connectivity split, but more when it shows up.

Huawei MatePad Pro 11 unboxing

The MatePad Pro 11 ships in a sturdy white cardboard box with some fine print: the device name is front and center, along with the Huawei logo, display diagonal, and AppGallery suggestions.

Inside the box we have a 40W charger for our SD888 compatible tablet version, although the device is expected to support up to 66W of charging.

The Wi-Fi-only model tops out at 40W, but ships with a 22.5W adapter – we’re not sure why the two have different charging capabilities, or even why they don’t ship with a matching adapter .
