Huion have produced a series of tablets in different categories, features and sizes. With the production of Kamvas and Kamvas Pro series, a lot of people are left wondering the difference between tablets with almost similar titles.

In this review we shall go head to head, featuring the Huion Kamvas 16 vs Huion Kamvas Pro 16. As the name states, the two are 16” drawing tablets and what I personally like about this size is the midsize state. These tablets offer a big enough working area and still are not that big when it comes to portability.

Are Huion Kamvas 16 and Huion Kamvas Pro 16 Standalone

Yes, both Huion Kamvas 16 and Huion Kamvas Pro 16 fall under the category of Drawing tablet with a screen. This means that unlike the regular drawing tablets that fully depend on the computer for visual and running programs, having a screen really comes in handy. However, they are not under the Standalone drawing tablets category that is fully independent, since they exhibit a screen and more importantly an inbuilt operating system.

Stylus pen

It is a nice experience working with this tablet courtesy of the Huion pen tech 3.0 and electo-magnetic technology powered PW517 stylus.

Additionally, the pen offers a pen pressure sensitivity of 8192 providing you with accuracy and precision. By having these high levels of sensitivity, the pen further reduces lags and jitter.

The pen is further comfortable, with a non-slip rubber for long fatigue free working hours and with the pen nib lowered you get a stable ball-pen like experience.

Enjoy more brush option with this tablet as the support of 60 degrees tilt function gives you shading and brush control. Inorder to increase efficiency, the PW517 has 2 programmable buttons that you can use to speed up your productivity.

Last but not least, the pen has a resolution of 5080 LPI and a response rate of 144 PPI that enables a reduction of lags and jitters. This is made better by also having a 10mm pen reading height.

Upgrade your designing game by introducing the Huion Kamvas Pro 12 to your desk. The drawing tablet is keen to serve your needs to the maximum with some quality features it harbors.

 Huion Kamvas Pro 16 Stylus Pen

The kamvas Pro 12 uses the Huion pentech 3.0 PW507 stylus to enable you to reach your best designing conditions. Holding an 8192 pen pressure sensitivity, the pen not only makes your experience canvas-like but also offers accuracy and precision.

Apart from the Pentech 3.0 technology, the pen also has an electro-magnetic resonance technology that samples electrons, adjusting the strength and frequency of the magnetic field to produce absorption and radiation.

Lags and jitters can be a problem when using a poor stylus and the PW507 does not tolerate such conditions. They are well eliminated by a 5080 LPI pen resolution level and further experiencing a response rate of 266PPI.

Enjoy additional brush capabilities courtesy of a 60 degree tilt function support. This makes your shading and experience as a whole natural.

Lastly, the pen is made with a non-slip rubber cover, making your work session comfortable and fatigue free.

Screen display

Offering 1920 by 1080 pixels screen resolution level, the Kamvas Pro 12 provides the user with a lovely high definition display. The display is further enhanced by a quality color Gamut of 120% sRGB and 16.7 million color recognition. You can enjoy a top of the chart visual display with detailed and well pronounced colors.

An anti-glare glass then comes into the picture, bringing the pen closer to the cursor for a clear pen-to-screen interaction even in a bright environment.  Your eyes are then protected by this glass keeping its user safe from glare damage

A full laminated screen additionally eliminates parallax making your stylus more accurate.

Connection and compatibility

The Kamvas pro 16 is not a standalone tablet, it does require a computer connection. The available options offered for the connection are a 3–in-1 connection or a Type-C to Type-C connection.

This connection can be made to either Windows(7 and later) and MacOS(10.12 and later) operating systems. Sadly the Kamvas Pro 16 does not support Android operating system connection.

User friendliness

Having 6 customizable express keys, the tablet offers you efficiency since you can enhance your navigation through shortcuts.


  • Quality stylus
  • High pen pressure sensitivity
  • High screen resolution
  • High levels of response rate


  • Is not compatible with android devices.


There you go. The similarities may seem more but the small differences can be a reason to choose either of the two. It is quite obvious that the Kamvas Pro 16’s PW507 has better features but the non compatibility of the tablet to android devices is a major setback. Ideally both are quality drawing tablets with a screen and hope you’ll be able to pick one that serves your purpose.
