OnePlus Pad has been tipped to be in development again. The company is said to be looking to enter the tablet segment soon. The OnePlus Pad, which is expected to make its debut as the first tablet offering from the Chinese tech brand led by Pete Lau, has been rumoured to be in the works for around a year now. As per the latest leak, the OnePlus Pad will be launched next year. OnePlus has already forayed beyond smartphones and has launched its own range of smart TVs, wearables, and audio products like true wires stereo (TWS) earbuds and wireless headphones. Earlier leaks had suggested it would be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage on the rumoured device.
Tipster Max Jambor (@MaxJmb) on Twitter suggested that the OnePlus Pad tablet is in the works and is scheduled to release next year. It was earlier reported that the first tablet from OnePlus will be launched in the first half of 2022. We can expect more details about this in the coming days.
The last time we heard about the OnePlus Pad was back in July. A tipster had claimed that a tablet codenamed ‘OnePlus Reeves’ has gone into the testing phase in India. It was earlier tipped to come with a price tag of CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs 34,500).
