A dazzling display of premium craftsmanship

The MatePad T8’s 8-inch screen maximizes its compact frame for immersion, stretching the display to an 80% screen-to-body ratio. It’s easy to get absorbed in an e-book or exciting movie given such a high-quality visual experience on this tablet. The metallic sandblasted finish and ergonomic design also translates to a comfortable handheld grip, even during extended use.

Exceptional performance and battery life

On the performance side, the MatePad T8’s octa-core chip assumes rapid processing duties, ensuring a smooth and snappy experience across the board. It also has 2+32GB RAM and ROM. Switching between browser tabs, streaming apps and games is a seamless affair; there’s no waiting around between scrolling through web pages to picking up where you left off in a movie or video.

Speaking of video playback, the tablet’s hefty 5100mAh battery can last 12 hours on a single charge, making binge sessions all the more enjoyable.

Smart and safe playtime with Kids Corner

To help parents give their tech-savvy kids a safe, wholesome time with smart devices, the Huawei MatePad T8 includes a Kids Corner feature. Kids Corner’s four basic functions – Recorder, Camera, Multimedia and Kids Painting – help children have fun while stretching their imaginations. The feature also gives parents full control of what their kids can access on the device, allowing for worry-free gadget play-time. Moreover, the multi-layered Eye Protection technology on the MatePad T8 prevents eye fatigue through blue light reduction and posture alerts (via Kids Corner), further promoting balanced and healthy device usage.

It’s an app party in AppGallery

A smart device is only as good as the apps it has, and the Huawei AppGallery gives MatePad T8 users plenty of incentive to explore and play around with the tablet’s capabilities. As the third-biggest mobile app store globally, AppGallery’s extensive selection of apps and games rapidly grows every day, with more titles getting added as more developers recognize the immense potential of Huawei Mobile Services. AppGallery’s rewards system helps facilitate that growth through constant promotional events in-store, giving avid users app vouchers, special points and VIP privileges that enhance their app discoveries.

Among AppGallery’s vast collection are newly-added top entertainment apps like iFlix, Viu, and WeSing – staples for cinephiles and karaoke fanatics alike. For gamers, Garena Free Fire: Rampage, Naruto: Slugfest and Rise of Kingdoms more than satisfies those tactical action cravings. Meanwhile, Zoom and Viber takes care of essential utilities for the more productivity-minded users out there.

Kids learning apps

As for the little tykes, Shapes for Kids, Kids Coloring Book Pages, Animal Sounds for Kids, Kids Nursery Rhymes and My Educational Phone provides hours of learning-based fun.

All of the above-mentioned apps are downloadable directly from AppGallery, but for soon-to-come titles, AppGo helps users find such apps via the Huawei browser or other secure third-party platforms (APKPure, etc.). No matter the source, all these apps run seamlessly on the Huawei MatePad T8 in all their immersive glory.

As always, Huawei successfully balances multiple high-quality features (immersive display, powerful performance, premium design and safety functions) in one affordable educational/entertainment solution with the MatePad T8.
