Over the course of 2020, office work as we know it has drastically changed. From those in the rank and file, all the way up to the C-suite decision-makers, everyone needed to adapt to the new normal of remote working in lieu of safety. But as the world maintains an optimistic outlook into the future of the workspace, a hybrid structure is foreseen to be the work framework of tomorrow.
What exactly is a hybrid work setup? It is believed by experts that in the post-pandemic era, the business industry will be employing a more flexible structure wherein employees can work from a place of their preference as they prioritize safety and efficiency. This new organizational setup is expected to accelerate further the dependence of business decision-makers, entrepreneurs, and the general employee population on technology and digital connectivity.
To enable Filipino business leaders and creatives to continue creating extraordinary in the new normal of a hybrid workspace, HUAWEI Philippines launched its most powerful tablet yet. The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 packs the tech essentials for a smart mobile office of tomorrow.
A Synergistic Multi-Device Mobile Office
Synergy among devices is essential for the productivity and creativity of any entrepreneur or creative. Tearing down the boundaries between devices, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 promotes a seamless experience across all connected devices. For instance, HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 supports Tablet-PC Multi-screen Collaboration, which allows users to have devices interconnected in one Super Device. Under the Tablet-PC Multi-screen Collaboration, there are three modes available: Mirror Mode where the laptop interface is duplicated onto the tablet, showing exactly the same content; Extend Mode where the tablet serves as an additional display for the PC to have more space to display content; and Collaborate Mode, where the user can use the computer mouse to drag and drop selected text, image, and files between two devices.
The MatePad Pro 12.6’s HUAWEI Share also promotes a more fluid collaboration between devices, allowing the smooth sending of files and eradicating the hassle of messy cables and slow upload bandwidth.
Powerful Processor Capable of Handling Intense Multitasking
Working in a hybrid setup will be requiring modern-day hustlers to do intense multitasking to achieve the day’s goals. The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 is equipped with the Kirin 9000E chipset — the fastest Kirin processor yet. The advanced and powerful 5nm Kirin 9000E SoC is capable of multitasking, processing massive amounts of data, and powering real-time AI computing with ease. Lags caused by simultaneously opened apps is a worry of the past for this powerful processor efficiently manages the operations of the tablet. Users can just lay back and focus on producing their best output and ideas.
Tech Accessories that Enhance Productivity and Creativity
Demand for enhanced productivity and creativity may also rise in the future of hybrid work. But this should be no problem for technophiles who gear themselves with the right accessories. One of which is the HUAWEI M-Pencil 2nd Generation. The all-new HUAWEI M-Pencil packs upgrades for smooth work on drawings, notes and document mark-ups, boasting greater precision and ease.
Jotting down notes is also made easier with the M-Pencil’s 4,096 levels of pressure sensing, which allow it to smartly convert handwritten content into typography via the HUAWEI FreeScript feature. The high levels of pressure sensing also allow the pencil to enable users to draw beautiful curves, thick or thin, without the gnarly jagged edges; and various shades of colors. The new M-Pencil’s support of tilt-writing also empowers users to create shading effortlessly. The HUAWEI M-Pencil 2nd Generation also has a double-tap toggle. This allows the stylus to switch the current tool to the eraser, and switch back easily while editing.
Another complementing accessory is the Smart Keyboard. The new HUAWEI Smart Magnetic Keyboard inherits the advantages of its predecessor, including the magnetic holder, wireless charging and Bluetooth connectivity so that it’s ready to use instantly. Not only is the HUAWEI Smart Magnetic Keyboard a full-sized keyboard for easy typing with two hands, but the keys also have adequate spacing between each other, and all feature 1.3mm key travel to offer a comfortable and responsive typing experience.
Hyper Accurate Display for Easier Review of Details
Practitioners in the creative industry have a plethora of output they need to review and send out to clients and partners on a daily basis. Business decision-makers also need to sign off work items — creative or administrative — regularly. And since access to printers is limited, proofing of materials may not be a viable option. This dilemma creates the need for accurate and vivid displays that can show the correct colors and details of various files and artworks.
This HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6 features a 12.6-inch, 16:10 ultra-wide HUAWEI OLED FullView Display that is framed in superbly slim bezels each measuring just 5.6mm, allowing them to virtually blend into the design. With a 90% screen-to-body ratio, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro has the world’s highest screen-to-body ratio among all tablets available on the market today. The HUAWEI OLED FullView Display is not only gorgeous to look at, but offers a consistent and immersive experience for all types of content, with none of the design irregularities that draw attention away from what is important.
Furthermore, every panel is factory calibrated to achieve a colour accuracy rating of Delta E < 0.5. Entry-level displays come with a Delta E < 3, of which the colour difference is noticeable. When the colours are so accurate, creative professionals will have no problem relying on the HUAWEI MatePad Pro for even the most colour sensitive projects.
