Huawei’s Consumer BG is entering the Philippines’ kids smart device market and bringing two highly competitive but safe gadgets for Filipino families, including the HUAWEI MatePad T 8 Kids Edition and HUAWEI WATCH KIDS 4 Pro.
In this digital era, people rely on digital channels and electronic devices to complete daily life. Hence, children are already influenced to play with various gadgets and entertainment through electronic devices ever since an early age. This tendency has drastically increased during this past year. The demand for gadgets for children has increased dramatically during this new normal situation. Even though the demand for children’s gadgets is high, the variety of gadgets for children is extremely low. Children mostly use their parents’ gadgets, which creates numerous concerns for parents in granting access to gadgets. Huawei understood these issues and did research and development to come up with solutions. Today, Huawei officially launches MatePad T 8 Kids Edition, a tablet specifically made for children, packed with features to ensure a safe & healthy digital experience.
George Li, Country Head Huawei CBG Philippines said, “Huawei oversees the current challenge of the digitalized world and commits to bringing innovation in every development of Huawei products that are smart and problem-solving. We’re proud to introduce the HUAWEI MatePad T 8 Kids Edition and HUAWEI Watch Kids 4 Pro that will bring fun and education all wrapped in a safe and adorable device and will be a perfect companion for parents and their children. “
HUAWEI MatePad T 8 Kids Edition, the ultimate safe and eye protection tablet for children
The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 Kids Edition, designed with children’s education and healthy development in mind. Available in an 8-inch variant, this latest addition to the HUAWEI MatePad T Series comprises beautiful tablets that are specifically designed for children aged 3-8. They offer everything a child loves, including an adorable Kids Case, stylus pen, and the Kids Corner default app that is pre-loaded with child-friendly content.
The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 Kids Edition comes with a beautiful Kids Case made from environmentally safe silicone, offering all-round protection for both the device and your child. Consisting of a blue shell and cute green grips, it is comfortable and enjoyable to hold for small hands. The tablets also feature curved backs, giving them a delicate and rounded grip.
Ultra-slim bezels result in an immersive visual experience, with a bright blue stylus pen to match your child’s inquisitive mind. The stylus pen offers a more interactive experience for kids by enabling them to draw finer pictures on the tablet, as well as to enjoy themselves to the fullest when playing touchscreen games. Both the Kids Case and the stylus pen meet the European Standards on the Safety of Toys and pass the Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS), so parents can confidently allow their children to enjoy the accessories.
The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 Kids Edition boasts numerous safety features, giving parents the ultimate peace of mind. Parents can manage time spent, apps used, and other viewable content on Kids Corner, allowing them to set multiple designated time limit intervals throughout the day. For example, parents can set it so that their child can use the tablet for a maximum of 20 minutes after school between 5 pm to 6 pm, or after dinner between 7 pm and 9 pm. They can also apply different settings for the weekday versus the weekend so that the tablet brings the perfect balance between study and play. In Kid’s Profile, parents can also gain access to their children’s usage records, allowing them to log their children’s usage time and see the apps used over any given period.
The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 Kids Edition leverages the power of technology to protect children’s eyesight. A built-in color adjustment module intelligently adjusts the content on the display, offering a discrete eye protection mode. With help from an ambient light sensor, the tablet also enables multi-layered eye protection for your child’s eyes.
Huawei tablets are equipped with a built-in gravity sensor that can determine whether the user is lying flat, with prompts to encourage them to adjust their posture accordingly. There is even an algorithm that detects when the tablet is shaking (such as when the user is using the tablet while walking or in a car), which can remind your child to use it in a stable state, therefore developing better eye habits. Furthermore, when the eBook mode is enabled, the tablet automatically adjusts the contrast, brightness, sharpness, saturation, color temperature, grayscale and other parameters on the display to offer a quality reading experience that closely resembles that of reading a physical book. The Bumpy Road Alerts, Posture Alerts, eBook mode, and more can all be toggled on and off in Kids Corner.

For Kids Corner, Huawei has partnered with BabyBus and Azoomee, two of the leading educational developers creating apps for children.
