Oppo finally took the warps off their first tablet today, the Oppo Pad 2022, and it’s a well equipped tablet with some original touches: https://item.jd.com/100033119480.html
It runs the Android 11 bas ColorOS 12, and features specs such as an 11-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and 120Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, and model options of 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM with 128GB/256GB, or 8GB of RAM with 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
They are all Wi-Fi models at this point, but with Oppo being a large smartphone manufacturer, I would not be surprised if we got some cellular models too down the line.
Other specs on the Oppo Pad includes a 8MP front camera, a 13MP rear camera, quad speakers with Dolby Atmos and High-Res audio, support for the 4096 pressure level digitizer Oppo Pencil with magnetic attachment, a 8360 mAh battery with 33W charging, Wi-Fi 6, and and optional keyboard cover.
As an 11-inch tablet at 507 grams and a thickness of 6.99mm, it is very close to the impressive standards of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, but still not quite there.
The Oppo Pad has a rear design that highlights the Oppo brand very visibly through large letters on both the grey, silver, and the purple models, which is a first on a tablet computer.
Starting at just over the equivalent of $365, the tablet offers good hardware performance for the money, and that could create a lot of new Oppo customers after it launches on March 7.
