OnePlus launched its very first Android tablet almost exactly last year. While we don't expect to see a successor anytime soon, initial details about the device including its release date and processor have started to surface.

OnePlus Pad 2 to launch in 2H 2024?

According to information shared by reputable leaker Max Jambor shared on X (formerly Twitter), the successor to the OnePlus Pad is said to arrive in the second half of 2024. That is a broad launch window, but it does add to the certainty that the OnePlus Pad 2 exists and is already in the works.

Apart from the possible release date, not much else is known about the device's hardware. Based on what we know, the OnePlus Pad is a rebranded version of the China-bound Pad 2 from its sister company Oppo. Hence, it wouldn't be a surprise if OnePlus Pad 2 will end up sharing specifications and design with the upcoming Oppo Pad 3.

What could be different in the OnePlus Pad 2?

Based on another prolific leaker Digital Chat Station (via GizmoChina), the Oppo Pad 3 is shaping up to enlist a high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC rather than continue with a MediaTek chip.

If it materializes, it will be a notable upgrade in performance from the Dimensity 9000 chip in the Oppo Pad 2 and OnePlus Pad. At the same, it would make it among the very few tablets powered by a Snapdragon chip, such as with Samsung's Galaxy Tab S9 that runs on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

Based on what we know, OnePlus uses MediaTek chips to keep the cost of its devices lower compared to equipping them with Snapdragon counterparts. On that note, it might mean the OnePlus 3 could eventually command a higher price than its predecessor.

In addition to the flagship chip, the OnePlus Pad 2 could carry over the unique 7:5 display ratio, which similar to OnePlus' cheaper Pad Go, alongside a large battery capacity and fast charging rate. The tablet should run on the Android 14 with Oxygen OS on top.

What else would you wish to see from the OnePlus Pad 2? Do you think the company will increase the tablet's price if it runs on Snapdragon 8 Gen 3? We like to hear your thoughts on this. Let's discuss those in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
