Huawei MatePad 2 and Professional 2 – Very possible
With Huawei teasing a new M-Pencil stylus it appears greater than possible that we’ll get a brand new pill – maybe two. The Huawei MatePad Professional 2 is anticipated to have a 12.9” 120 Hz OLED display, a Kirin 9000 chipset (with 5G connectivity, 9000E for the Wi-Fi mannequin) and 40W fast charging (and 27W wi-fi charging).

Curiously, leaksters have been calling the software program “PadOS”, a department of HarmonyOS specifically devoted to tablets (identical to Apple does with iOS/iPadOS). Anyway, the brand new tablets could change into out there quickly after the reveal.
Huawei Watch 3 – Very possible
Huawei additionally teased a watch, that is anticipated to be the Huawei Watch 3. Operating HarmonyOS, after all, in contrast to the GT-series that the corporate has been targeted on till not too long ago.

The Watch 3 can also be anticipated to have an eSIM for a knowledge connection even with no smartphone current (a characteristic that has been absent from current Huawei watches). Whether or not or not it will likely be in a position to measure blood pressure is unclear (that’s focused for H2, which could imply a brand new machine or an replace pending approval from the medical authorities).
The Huawei Watch 3 may have a revamped UI
Huawei has bold objectives for HarmonyOS and desires it to succeed in 300 million devices by the tip of the yr, together with 100 million which have it pre-installed (the numbers, after all, embrace issues as huge as tablets or TVs and as small as watches).
Huawei P50 sequence – uncertain
Huawei did tease the P50 series, however we doubt that we are going to see a full launch – an introduction and a demo, maybe. If the corporate has began mass manufacturing of its new flagship smartphone line, it might have leaked. And we haven’t heard something convincing but.
That isn’t to say that followers gained’t get to make use of a Huawei telephone operating HarmonyOS quickly. That shall be achieved by updating current Android fashions – leaked data means that the migration plan consists of the Mate 40 sequence, the Mate X2, the unique MatePad Professional and a few nova 8 fashions.

The supply that introduced this data additionally claims that eligible gadgets which can be stocked on retailer cabinets have already been up to date, so quickly customers will have the ability to go in for a hands-on expertise (in China, no less than). This has greater implications too, Huawei would possibly cease promoting Android-powered telephones altogether (no less than within the high-end phase).
We count on we’ll see some (if not all) of those make a quick look as a present of power from the Huawei ecosystem.
