Huawei launches new tablet for kids, the MatePad T8
Huawei announced that it has launched a new tablet meant for children with educational and safety tools called the MatePad T8.
According to the company, the tablet is ideal for kids as it is durable, light, and powerful featuring an octa-core processor, and a 5100mAh battery.
The device comes with an ultra-slim 4.9 mm3 side bezels and 80% screen-to-body ratio1, giving ample on-screen room for immersive entertainment.
In terms of software, the MatePad T8 has Kids Corner to help parents balance the digital wellbeing of their children. This includes the ability to limit screen time.
According to Huawei, Kids Corner is a virtual playground that children can explore without adult supervision.
“The platform not only aims to create an exclusive learning and entertainment space for children but also ensures that parents can easily monitor their child’s tablet usage — without having to hover over them 24/7," said Huawei in a statement.
Parents can adjust settings in Kids Corner with four control modules: eye protection, time management, app management, and content management.
This allows you to limit how much time a child can spend using the device per day. You can also set which apps they can use at different times of the day.
Kids Corner also includes posture alerts, an eBook mode, and a blue light filter.
The enhanced Eye Comfort Mode9 helps to protect your kids’ eyes from blue light and when they are viewing the tablet while lying-down, they will receive an alert to adjust the angle to further protect their eyesight.
The Huawei MatePad T8 is available to purchase at a price tag of R2 999 from Huawei’s online store, Vodacom, MTN, Cellucity, Telkom, Incredible Connection, Makro, and Game from the 1st of July.
