Huawei MatePad SE 10.4 TUV Rheinland Certification

The HUAWEI MatePad SE 10.4-inch is the ultimate at-home entertainment tablet, specially designed to give the best entertainment experience for the entire family. HUAWEI MatePad SE 10.4-inch gives the ultimate immersive experience for individuals of all ages to watch movies, shop online, surf through social media, and more, thanks to features such as a huge HUAWEI FullView display, dual speakers, and a High-Performance Antenna.

The HUAWEI MatePad SE 10.4-inch features a large 10.4-inch 2K Eye Comfort HUAWEI FullView Display that has been TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light and Flicker-free certification for proven eye fatigue relief. The 83% screen-to-body ratio allows for immersive viewing, and the 440 g body has a robust central frame for long-lasting use.

We’re fortunate enough to get our hands on an early unit of the HUAWEI MatePad SE that boasts a stylish design that features a micro-curved middle frame design that gives the device a slimmer look and feel. Here are our unboxing and initial impressions of HUAWEI’s latest camera-centric smartphone.


The new HUAWEI MatePad SE arrived with the familiar white box with the model name on the upper left corner and the HUAWEI logo on the upper right corner of the box. I also noticed the AppGallery icon on the lower portion of the box. This means that HUAWEI is actively promoting its own app store as a replacement for Google Play.

Inside the box contains the HUAWEI MatePad SE 10.4 device, paper documentation, a SIM ejector tool, USB-A to USB-C power cable, and a charging adapter. It also comes with a free HUAWEI MatePad Folio Cover.

Build Quality/Design

The MatePad SE 10.4 has a stylish, portable design that makes it simple to use while on the go. The HUAWEI MatePad SE has a stunning 10.4-inch 2K HUAWEI FullView Display with an 83% screen-to-body ratio and thin 8.5mm bezels, which provides a completely immersive viewing experience. The four sides of the tablet are symmetrical. This allows you to concentrate on the screen and appreciate whatever you’re watching.

HUAWEI MatePad SE’s twin symmetrical speaker system tuned by HUAWEI Histen 8.0 technology can broaden the surround sound field and enhance human voice, making each call, line in the film, and online class crystal clear.

The screen’s 4096-level brightness adjustment enables it to instantly change the brightness based on the surrounding lighting conditions, keeping your eyes comfortable at all times.

Children of all ages may use tablets safely and with enjoyment thanks to Kids Corner, which also allows them to enjoy the stories, activities, and nursery rhymes in BabyBus.
