Huawei has announced in its native China a curious tablet called Huawei MatePad 11 2023.

A new tablet was made based on the year before last tablet Huawei MatePad 11. But if the old MatePad 11 had a normal screen, then in this case we are talking about some kind of "paper-like screen".

By the way, so that life does not seem like honey, marketers from Huawei decided to add confusion. The new tablet Huawei MatePad 11 2023 is available in two variations.

A simpler variation, like the old version of MatePad 11, runs on the flagship chip�Since 2019 Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 (approximately 600-700 thousand AnTuTu points). And she has - param-pam - a normal screen. Those. this is a stupid copy of the year before last tablet, only with a slightly different appearance.

And here is the second variation of the Huawei MatePad 11 2023 tablet - it is already on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset (which is half a bump more powerful). And now it is already equipped with a new screen.

The full name of this second variation in Chinese is Huawei MatePad 11 2023 柔光版. Automatic translators translate these characters as "Soft Light Edition", "Soft Light".

What kind of paperbad screens? This is by no means electronic ink (E-Ink). Rather, we are talking about something similar to what TCL has fun with (NXTPAPER technology). Those. "improved" screens with IPS-matrices.

What do they promise? They promise more natural colors, better behavior in the presence of flare (including in the sun). As well as the best "paper" feeling if you use the tablet as a notepad and write something in it using the proprietary stylus.

To the characteristics.

The screen has a diagonal of 11" (351 cm²). The resolution is normal, 2560x1600 (274 ppi).And updates are increased - right up to 120 Hz. Given the rather powerful hardware, by the way, we get a good tablet for games.

Memory is average. 6 or 8 GB operative, 128 or 256 GB permanent. Support for memory cards is questionable (the 2021 model had it).

The rest is not so interesting. Battery with a capacity of 7250 mAh. Single cameras - 8 MP front and 13 MP rear. Sixth wifi. Type C.

From minor troubles. No GPS module, no gyroscope, no versions with mobile internet support - ie. Wi-Fi and only Wi-Fi.

And about money.
