Huawei is about to introduce two new tablets. What awaits us with the Huawei MatePad (Pro) 2 is now becoming increasingly clear. The Chinese manufacturer will do without Android. Instead, the in-house development HarmonyOS is used, as has now been confirmed. There will also be a stylus for the tablet.
Huawei MatePad (Pro) 2 with HarmonyOS
Huawei has invited to an event on June 2nd, at which a whole range of new hardware will be presented. The presentation of the Huawei P50 smartphone cannot be assumed, but at least one tablet and a smartwatch should be shown. It is certain that the Huawei Mate Pad Pro 2 will be presented, probably next to a not quite as powerful and smaller standard version. A stylus should be made available as an accessory for both models.
According to Huawei Central, the Chinese manufacturer has now confirmed via a teaser that Android will not be the operating system for tablets. Instead, HarmonyOS is used. Due to US sanctions, Huawei is no longer able to use components and software from the USA. HarmonyOS should be used on smartphones as well as tablets and smartwatches.

According to initial reports, the Huawei MatePad (Pro) 2 has a screen size of 12.6 inches and 10.1 inches, depending on the version. For the processor, the decision was made for the Kirin 9000, which is probably supported by up to 8 GB of RAM. The battery can be charged with a cable with 40 watts. A function for wireless charging is also part of the game, up to 27 watts should be possible here.
The smartwatch Huawei Watch 3 (Pro) will also be officially shown on June 2nd. Here, HarmonyOS was also chosen as the operating system.
