Huawei recently announced a new tablet which they simply named the MatePad, which is seemingly a less powerful iteration of its MatePad Pro flagship tablet.
The company built the tablet with students in mind, and it features some interesting specifications.
Samsung also announced a new tablet some time ago – the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, which is a more accessible version of their flagship, the Galaxy Tab S6.
However, the two models have numerous similarities. Let’s see them!
Though each device has its unique looks, both companies use the same materials for their bodies. There is an aluminium frame and back, and a glass-covered display.
The two models have decent bezels, though we would have liked to see some slimmer ones.
As for the dimensions, the Galaxy Tab S6 is marginally smaller and thinner but is 17 grams heavier than the MatePad, which weighs 450 grams.
Both devices have 10.4-inch displays with the same 1200 x 2000 resolution, and both use LCD technology.
The MatePad uses a Kirin 810 chipset for its brains, while the S6 Lite is based on the Exynos 9611 processor.
On paper, the Kirin 810 is the better chipset, thanks to its 2x Cortex-A76 cores and 6x Cortex-A55 cores. The Exynos 9611 has 4x Cortex-A73 cores and 4x Cortex-A53 cores.
Therefore, apps and games should load significantly faster on the MatePad, also thanks to the fact that the tablet is available in 4GB and 6GB RAM versions.
The Samsung model is available only with 4GB of RAM, however.
Both devices allow for storage expansion via SD card.
These are the most relevant aspects of both devices, as they are truly what matters when you search for a tablet.
