OnePlus teasers for new products are always a fun sight. Its latest one gives us an early look at the company’s next tablet, and it sets the stage quite nicely. In a new Weibo post, the company calls the upcoming OnePlus Pad Pro the “most powerful Android tablet” to date. Call us impressed.

The new tablet, likely to be called the “OnePlus Pad 2” in the U.S., is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. However, it’s also possible that OnePlus has chosen the Dimensity 9300+ chipset instead. The Dimensity 9300+ is currently the fastest Android chipset on the market.

The tease (shown below) suggests the new tablet will look much like the previous one, down to being available in a green hue. Beyond this, little is known about the OnePlus Pad 2.

The current OnePlus Pad is considered the best Android tablet on the market. The well-reviewed tablet offers a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset. That first-generation model features an 11.6-inch LCD with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 7:5 aspect ratio. It provides 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The device sports a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. Its battery capacity is 9510mAh and it supports 67-watt fast charging.

We can’t wait to see OnePlus’s next tablet, and we won’t have long to wait. The tease says an official announcement is coming this week, on Thursday, July 27. At that time, we will have the specifications for the tablet, as well as the China release date. However, we might have to wait a little longer for the U.S. release date. The current model was released in the U.S. in February 2023.

This new Android tablet is everything I wish the 2024 iPad Air was
Vivo Pad 3

China-based Vivo has introduced a new tablet, the Vivo Pad 3, and based on the specs alone, this could fast become one of the best Android tablets of the year. Perhaps more importantly, it could become an exciting competitor to the recently released iPad Air (2024).

The Vivo Pad 3 boasts a 12.1-inch LCD, a 2,800 x 1,968 resolution, and a 7:5 screen ratio. The display, with a P3 gamut, also offers 600 nits peak brightness and HDR10 support. As if that weren't enough, you also get a 144Hz refresh rate.

One year later, Amazon still makes one of the best Android tablets you can get
The front of the Amazon Kindle Fire Max 11 with its keyboard case.

The Amazon Fire Max 11 was one of my favorite Android tablets released in recent memory. It’s well-priced, portable, and has a good selection of accessories. With a bit of patience, you can add Google Play to make it more usable.

A fair time has passed since I used it, though, so does it still hold up a year after I first fell in love?
One issue straight away

OnePlus’ new cheap phone has a worrying surprise inside
A promotional image showing the OnePlus Nord CE 4 Lite.

OnePlus started out making a single smartphone model, but that has changed over the years. The latest in its growing range of devices is the OnePlus Nord CE 4 Lite 5G. In short, this is an entry into OnePlus’ budget-friendly CE range that promises some desirable features for a decent price. Lets see what’s new, and also what's, unfortunately, a bit old, too.

If you’re familiar with the Nord CE phones, you’ll be pleased to know the screen has been given a significant upgrade compared to previous models. You look at a 6.67-inch Samsung AMOLED display  which is closer in technology to the old OnePlus 11 than it is to most Nord CE devices. The 2400 x 1080 pixel resolution is paired with a 60Hz to 120Hz maximum refresh rate and a peak 2,100-nit brightness. It also has the same Aqua Touch technology found on the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12R, which makes the screen more responsive when it or your fingers are wet.
