The device uses the HarmonyOS 4 platform.
MatePad Pro 11 (2024) is equipped with a proprietary Kirin 9000S processor, which provides a high level of performance and 5G support.
Buyers will be able to choose between versions of the tablet with 12 GB of RAM and a 256 or 512 GB drive. Autonomous operation is provided by a rechargeable battery with a capacity of 8300 mAh with support for fast charging with a power of up to 66 watts.
