Huawei announces HUAWEI MatePad SE Kids edition tablet

Huawei announces the launch of the HUAWEI MatePad SE Kids Edition, a tablet specifically designed for children aged 3-8. The 10.4-inch Eye Comfort 2K display presents content in bright, vivid colour, with the high screen-body ratio delivering extra immersive viewing experience.

Kids Corner, Learning and Playing Through a Battery of Heuristic Games
Kids Corner is a child-centric treasure chest that can be accessed from the ordinary main screen for adult use. Parents can use passwords to manage the switching in and out of Kids Corner. Aside from multi-layer eye care modes and parental control settings, Kids Corner is packed with a wealth of children-friendly apps with a playful interface. Kids Corner also features Kids painting, Recorder, and Camera, among many other features. HUAWEI MatePad SE Kids Edition is a springboard for children’s creativity, giving them the chance to capture funny and interesting moments, sketch out their dreams, and record their creations.

Huawei has partnered with Baby Panda World and Azoomee, two premium educational apps for children, to provide a constant stream of enriching and educational content.

The tablet comes with a free three-month VIP membership to Baby Panda World, which gives you the access to exclusive, ad-free content. Baby Panda World houses over 100 interactive, intriguing games and puzzles to match the needs of children aged 1 to 7, covering six major fields of children’s cognitive development, including thought-provoking, society, science, health, habits, and arts. Baby Panda World is a product developed by a professional team that focuses on children education and certified by senior teachers, making it a trustworthy digital assistant for parents.

The tablet also comes with a free one-year VIP membership to Azoomee, where children can enjoy a wide range of fun, educational content that has been carefully selected to ensure optimal safety and is subject to regular updates. It includes more than 200 games and over 500 hours of STEAM videos for kids, including action games, quizzes, puzzles, and creative activities, providing a fun platform for children to develop academic, logic, arts, speech, and more skills.

TÜV Rheinland Certified Eye Comfort, with Additional Brightness Adjustment and Multi-layered Eye Protection
The HUAWEI MatePad SE Kids Edition features a 10.4-inch Eye Comfort 2K display with a screen-to-body ratio of up to 83% and 2000 x 1200 resolution, generating clear and colourful content that makes learning and leisure fun beyond belief. The HUAWEI MatePad SE Kids Edition uses the power of technology to protect children’s eyes from the hazards of digital viewing. The tablet’s Eye Comfort mode has obtained the TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light Certification and Flicker Free Certification, demonstrating itself to be effective at filtering out harmful blue light and preventing eye fatigue caused by flickers.

HUAWEI MatePad SE Kids Edition also comes with 4096-level auto brightness adjustment that takes the ambient lighting conditions into account, which means that the screen brightness changes in accordance with the lighting environment. Thanks to the presence of an ambient light sensor and gyroscope, the tablet is packed with five eye care modes, which are Blue light filter, Posture alerts, Brightness alerts, Bumpy road alerts, and eBook mode, which help children maintain healthy digital habits.

Parental Controls, for Healthier Digital Habits and a Pure Learning Environment
Children may easily get hooked on tablets, whether it is watching favourite cartoons or play favourite games — and when done in excess, these activities can undermine their physical and mental growth. HUAWEI MatePad SE Kids Edition takes the need for wholesome digital habits into account — providing a range of parental control settings in Kids Corner that help ensure that kids are spending quality time on their tablets.

Comprehensive content, time, and app management settings allow parents to make certain apps, images and videos off limits, ensuring that children only access age-appropriate content, and adhere to set screen time limits. This gives parents peace of mind while providing children with the space to pursue their passions. In addition, parents can view their child’s detailed usage records in the kid’s profile. This gives parents a good understanding of how their child is learning and growing, and intervene early if they detect any unhealthy habits.

Children-friendly Accessories, Ensured Safety and Durability
The tablet comes with children-friendly accessories, including a protective case with a rotating handle, which doubles as a support stand, and a passive capacitive stylus. The kids case comes in green and features a yellow handle, providing an eye-catching contrast. The silicone material of the case has passed a rigorous battery of tests and complies with the LFGB and FDA standards for food-grade silicone contact materials, dispelling worries for usage safety.

Eco-friendly materials: The case is made of safe and irritation-free food-grade silicone, making it soft to touch and giving the tablet truly comprehensive protection as a whole for ensured durable usage.

Durable and impact-resistant: HUAWEI MatePad SE Kids Edition has passed a strict battery of drop and extrusion tests. The tablet’s silicone accessories are highly resistant to daily wear and tear, so that accidental drops and collisions do not lead to catastrophic damage.

Case with a versatile handle and attachable stylus: The handle on the protective case can double as an adjustable support stand to provide a comfortable view from any angle. The stylus, which can latch easily to the case for hassle-free portability, provides new interactive possibilities for refined sketch strokes.

HUAWEI MatePad SE Kids Edition can also serve as an ordinary tablet, as it switches seamlessly in and out of Kids Corner. This means that even when a child outgrows the features in Kids Corner, the tablet can continue to enrich their leisure and studies, and provide all-round reliable companion that promotes their healthy development.

Price and availability in the UAE
The new HUAWEI MatePad SE 10.4″ Kids Edition will be available starting this week at a price 649 AED across select retailers in the UAE.
