New Huawei MatePad Pro takes on iPad Pro with super-sleek punch-hole screen

Huawei's MatePad Pro has been officially announced and this uber-sleek tablet appears to be Huawei's answer to the iPad Pro. With Huawei already taking on Apple and creating some of the world's best camera phones, could this MatePad Pro launch be the next step in its disruption of Apple's reign? 

But of course, the MatePad Pro isn't exactly like the iPad Pro. The MatePad Pro has a punch-hole cutout corner, which we kind of like as a nod to our analogue filing days. It also means that the 10.5-inch screen (2K) takes up 90 per cent of the body of the tablet. That's a lot of screen. It might just make it into our best drawing tablets with a stylus pen for drawing and note-taking roundup.
