Huawei has designed the tablet for learning and packs it with features to make it learning-friendly. The tablet is designed for both kids, teenagers, and adults and comes with content for all ages. There is a custom desktop mode that puts educational apps and content right in front of the user once the tablet is unlocked.


Another feature is the display which has a TÜV Rheinland certification. The tablet can automatically adjust brightness and contrast and also has a switch to activate a monochrome mode.

With the M-Pencil, owners can take notes just as they would with a regular pen and notebook. They can also draw, make sketches, and practice calligraphy.
