Photo Announcement. Huawei MatePad C7 - business tablet with sudden support for 5G networks

I already wrote in August that Huawei suddenly quietly had several business tablets. Then these were renamed budget models from two years ago, but with improved software.


  • Customizable home screen - exclusive startup animation.
  • Authorization of applications - installation of client software only.
  • Disable features - disable Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, camera, USB port, etc.
  • Always running applications - client services are constantly running in the background.
  • Network management - access onlyo to client-set URLs.

Plus encryption, backup... Etc.

Now the family of business tablets has been replenished with another model, which is called Huawei MatePad C7. If you take a closer look, it's easy to find that we have a device created on the basis of last year's serious tablet Huawei MatePad 11, but with one major difference. The MatePad 11 does not have mobile internet support, only Wi-Fi. And MatePad C7 has it, and not only LTE, but even 5G.

More interestingly, this tablet Not available on the Russian Huawei website. And the notorious DNS company has even made a page for him on their website. And I set the price - ₽39299 ($655). But, however, the goods are not yet in stock.

About the characteristics.

The tablet runs on the HarmonyOS (2) operating system. Based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. The chip is not the first freshness, but its power still inspires respect. We are waiting for 600 thousand points in AnTuTu.

Memory is average. 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. There is support for Micro-SD memory cards.

The top feature of a tablet is, all of a sudden, the screen. IPS mat10.95 "(348 cm²) diagonal. The resolution is normal, 2560x1600 (276 ppi). But the refresh rate is increased - right up to 120 Hz. In combination with powerful hardware, we get what? That's right. An excellent device for games. The sound, again, is good they promise - as many as four speakers.And why, one wonders, such a chic toy was recorded in business devices?

As usual, keyboards can be connected. You can buy a branded stylus and start drawing something on the tablet.

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

Everything is fine, in short. I don't understand one thing. What about sanctions?
