Huawei MatePad 8 Released In India Today!

The world of tablets nowadays is pretty straightforward to be frank - you’re either Apple, or you suck. Even though the exact situation may not be that certain way - as there are quality tablets in the market for sure. But the thing is, people don’t seem to care for a tablet in the Android side of things - as iPads are the only well known tabs in the game right now, and they get plenty of attention. So perhaps it’s not the idea of tablets, it’s how the companies are selling its usability. 


We saw Samsung release a great tablet in the event with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, as the S7 Tab had great specs, functionality and looks. It was priced according to the iPad Pro 2020 as well, as it looked to be a direct competitor for the Apple tablet. The S7, even though not a complete competitor to the iPad, still got plenty of attention from the tech world, as journalists and tech enthusiasts loved the device - and that may have opened the way for Android based tablets in the upcoming future.

Huawei has decided now that it's going to manufacture a tablet of its own too, as the MatePad 8 got released in India today. The tablet from Huawei isn't trying to be another S7 Tab though, as it isn't targeting that price range at all. The MatePad has come with a modest price tag of 135 US dollars when converted from the Indian price. This falls in the budget region, and the specs are pretty down to earth for the device as well.


The tablet comes with a MediaTek processor which is paired with 2 gigs of RAM and 32GB of storage - both of which lie at the lower end of the spectrum, and won't really provide a snappy experience for the user. Moreover, the camera situation is nothing too spectacular either, as you get a 5MP primary lens at the back, and a 2MP front camera for selfie needs or video calling.

The battery is decent with a 5,000mAh unit, but there's no fast charging available as well. All in all, even though the price range is low with this one, we don't understand the purpose of the tablet and why it's been released. It isn't going to be a market breaker - and with the modest specs it has, it won't really be able to run much too other than basic social media and light games. However, it's in the market and it's released - and we don't know about what sort of attention it might get from the Indian market.
