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.

OnePlus launched the OnePlus 12 in China on December 5, 2023. On January 23, OnePlus will launch the OnePlus 12 and the lower-priced OnePlus 12R globally, including in the U.S. And it's time to start getting excited about that.

OnePlus has established itself as one of the bigger names in the smartphone world, and 2023 was an especially promising year for the company. Last year’s OnePlus 11 was a solid choice, and the OnePlus Open —the brand’s first foldable — was one of the best folding phones I've ever tried.
