With the Huawei MatePad 11.5-inch PaperMatte Edition you can put aside your preconceptions about what a handheld tablet can do.

Its most eye-catching feature is the unique PaperMatte Display, which really has to be seen to be believed. It uses nano-level anti-glare etching technology across the entire surface of the glass to deliver a non-reflective paper-like visual experience. By reducing as much as 97% of all light interference, such as glare and reflections (which any tablet user will know, is almost a constant annoyance), you’re getting a much more comfortable screen to work with that doesn’t need to get bright enough to sear your retinas.  

You might be forgiven for thinking that such a screen, with its textured surface, might compromise the clarity of the screen. The good news is this isn’t so. Huawei has applied advanced screen optimisation technology to perfectly align the nanoscale textures with the pixel distribution of the screen. This means that despite its ability to massively reduce reflected light, the user is still able to see a clear, bright and even image.

The 11.5-inch PaperMatte Display features a 2.2K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, so media, websites and apps look great and are smooth to use. Plus, comic books fans and avid readers will love the colour ebook mode which provides a comfortable feel and paper-like experience. With an 86% screen-to-body ratio, you’re also getting an immersive big screen experience without making the tablet too big or bulky.

The Huawei MatePad 11.5-inch PaperMatte Edition has also been granted the TÜV Rheinland Reflection Free and SGS Low Visual Fatigue Premium Performance certifications, a testament to just how well the screen works in all manner of demanding lighting conditions.

The PaperMatte Display doesn’t just make it an incredible tablet to watch movies and TV shows on - it also turns the Huawei MatePad 11.5-inch PaperMatte Edition into an incredible creative tool - especially if you combine it with the bundled Huawei M-Pencil (2nd generation) stylus.

A joy to write on

This is due to the nano-level anti-glare etching technology of the screen, which is formed of hundreds of millions of tiny structures on the surface of the glass. Combined with the matte surface, this gives you a tactile and satisfying writing experience that feels like you’re drawing or writing on paper - and puts rival tablets with overly glossy and slippery screens to shame. 

The new super-charged Huawei Notes app lets you quickly write notes and annotate them no matter where you are. It can turn your handwriting into editable text, and alongside the SuperHub feature, you can create, share and collaborate with ease.

Powerful and stylish

Huawei’s latest slate doesn’t just look great – it’s also an incredibly powerful tablet featuring cutting-edge technology such as Wi-Fi 6 for soaring wireless speeds, immersive quad-speakers that put you in the middle of the action when watching movies and TV shows, and an epic 7700mAh battery that gives you up to 10.5 hours of video playback on a single charge.

All of this is packed into a slim and stylish chassis with a uni-body design that’s carved out of a whole piece of aluminium alloy, weighing just 499g and only 6.85mm thin.

Combining power and portability, this is a speedy and svelte tablet that you can take pretty much anywhere. A high-resolution 13MP rear camera and 105-degree wide-angle front camera makes this an ideal tablet for photos and selfies as well. And, if you want to make video calls, you can use the FollowCam feature to ensure you’re always in shot. 

Add in multi-window multitasking, easy drag and drop file sharing with Super Device and the ability to play the latest visually-stunning mobile games, all powered by a high-performance processor, the Huawei MatePad 11.5-inch PaperMatte Edition is a tablet that pushes the boundaries - and you won’t want to put it down.
