Popular graphic design app, Canva, has partnered with HUAWEI AppGallery to preload its app on the upcoming HUAWEI MatePad Series, designed for creativity

Huaweitoday announced that HUAWEI AppGallery has partnered with one of the fastest-growing software companies, Canva, to help make graphic design more accessible to its customers. Available on Huawei’s new and exciting HUAWEI MatePad Series, including the recently launched HUAWEI MatePad 11 and two more devices set to come soon, Canva will now come preinstalled via AppGallery providing users with a full suite of free and innovative graphic tools.

Creativity at your fingertips

With a staggering 55 million monthly active users, Canva has firmly cemented itself as the go-to creativity hub for professionals and beginners alike. Designed for people and teams wanting to create absolutely anything, from logos and social media content to documents, prints and more, Canva offers users thousands of professional templates, images and quality content to choose from, helping them get a head-start on bringing their visions to life.

Completely free to use, with the option of paid-for Canva Pro, the app enables users to have an easy, drag-and-drop user-experience, so even if they’re a creative superstar or design novice, they can still create amazing content. Exclusive for Huawei users, AppGallery will now provide the app preloaded via the ‘Top Apps’ folder on select HUAWEI MatePads, so users can let their creative juices flow as soon as they open their new device.

Devices built to empower artistry

Available now and preloaded with Canva, the HUAWEI MatePad 11, perfectly complements the design app and is built to be the all-round creativity assistant. Featuring a stunning, 10.95 inch, 2.5K HD FullView Display, users can see their Canva works of art come to life thanks to the immersive screen in crystal-clear clarity. Plus, equipped with 128 GB of storage, all Canva creations can easily be stored on the device.
