Photo Announcement. Huawei MatePad SE 10.4 - second Second Edition?

Huawei has announced its second tablet called the MatePad SE. (Usually, the abbreviation SE stands for Second Edition, but in this case, it seems to be not deciphered in any way).

Huawei MatePad SE 10.4

The first MatePad SE was announced in the spring in China and had a 10.1 screen. So now it will be called Huawei MatePad SE 10.1 in our catalog. Outside the Middle Kingdom, this device was not seen. At least under that name. (In general, in our country, an almost exact twin of Huawei MatePad T 10s is sold, only it is on Android, and not on HarmonyOS like MatePad SE).

Huawei MatePad SE 10.1 China

The second MatePad SE has been announced not locally in China, but globally. And he has a slightly larger screen, 10.4. So I write it to our directory under the name Huawei MatePad SE 10.4. In addition to the screen, the new SE also differs from its namesake in the chipset. Otherwise, they are very similar - batteries, cameras, appearance. And by the way, the new SE also does not work on Android, but on HarmonyOS (third version).

About the characteristics.

The chipset is Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, so we expect about 250 thousand points in AnTuTu.

Memory. From 3+32 GB to 4+128 GB. Memory card support not mentionedthere is. But I think it's still there. It's hard to believe in 3+32 GB tablets without memory cards.

The screen is classic. Diagonal 10.4" (308 cm²), resolution 2000x1200 (224 ppi). No increased refresh rate.

Battery by the standards of tablets of similar dimensions is very modest, only 5100 mAh. No high-speed charging.

The cameras are purely symbolic. 5 MP rear and 2 MP front. Honestly, it would be better the other way around.

There is Type-C and dual-band Wi-Fi, no gyroscope and fingerprint scanner.

For tablet versions without mobile internet support (AGS5-W09) no GPS module. LTE versions (AGS5-L09) have GPS.

About the countries where Huawei MatePad SE 10.4 will be sold, as well as its cost, I do not see information yet.
