OnePlus Pad 5G will have Snapdragon 865 chipset, launch soon

OnePlus will be delving into the tablet market soon according to recent leaks. It is rumored that the company’s first tablet will be called the OnePlus Pad 5G. The tablet is expected to be revealed in the first half of 2022.

While OnePlus has yet to confirm any details about this upcoming tablet, tipster Mukul states that the device is already in mass production. Key specifications and pricing for the Oppo Pad 5G have also surfaced online. These frequent leaks indicate that the OnePlus Pad 5G may not be too far away from launch.

According to the tipster Shadow Leak, the rumored OnePlus Pad 5G may feature a 12.4-inch FHD+OLED display. The refresh rate wasn’t revealed in the shared tweet, but previous leaks suggest that the tablet could get a 120Hz panel. Under the hood, there could be a Snapdragon 865 chipset, which is a few years old, but packs enough power to drive a tablet without any hiccups. OnePlus may have chosen this chipset to keep the pricing of the OnePlus Pad 5G in check.

Does the OnePlus 11 have eSIM? Everything you need to know
OnePlus 11 titan black color with the SIM tray ejected and kept on a white and gray table top.

The OnePlus 11 is the latest premium smartphone from OnePlus and is crammed with generational upgrades in every area. The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, faster charging that tops up the large 5,000mAh battery in around 30 minutes, and more efficient storage and RAM are just some of the many upgrades we see on the flagship phone.

On the connectivity front, the OnePlus 11 gets a broader set of supported 5G frequency bands, Bluetooth 5.3, and theoretical support for Wi-Fi 7, which will be activated later following regulatory approvals per region. But there's one connectivity question on many people's minds: Does the OnePlus 11 have eSIM? We've yet to see a OnePlus device ship with eSIM support — including last year's OnePlus 10T and OnePlus 10 Pro. eSIM is a handy feature to have and can be a great convenience, so is it available on the OnePlus 11?

Is the OnePlus 11 waterproof, and does it have an IP rating?
The back of the OnePlus 11 against some ice.

You’re about to buy a OnePlus 11, but want to know if the phone has any degree of protection from the wet stuff. Is the OnePlus 11 waterproof, and does it have an IP rating?

This is an important question to ask before buying any smartphone. As careful as you may think you are with your devices, life happens. All it takes is one accident to drop your phone in the sink, get caught in the rain with it, or for it to take a tumble in the pool. If you have an IP rating, these things aren't a big deal. But if not, you're in for a headache.
