This is the OnePlus Pad — the OnePlus tablet we’ve waited years for

OnePlus will be launching its long-awaited first Android tablet pretty soon, and new renders bring our initial look at the upcoming device. The new renders come from the reliable leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks) in partnership with the folks over at MySmartPrice. Shortly after that reveal, OnePlus itself uploaded a teaser of its upcoming tablet before subsequently sharing a render of its own to TechRadar.

The leaked renders show off the OnePlus Pad in black, while OnePlus’ official renders have it in a Halo Green finish. It will have a premium aluminum build with chamfered edges, and the rear will sport a circular camera cutout to match the upcoming OnePlus 11. Thin bezels are here, as one would expect, but there are no notches or camera cutouts on the front as we’ve seen from some other Android tablets.

As for the specs, the OnePus Pad is expected to have an 11.6-inch display and likely a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. Nothing else was shared about the device other than what is immediately visually apparent. Thus, it could have a single camera like most tablets, or a double camera like an iPad.

There could be a stylus if OnePlus wants to equip it with one, and a cutout on the left side points at that — or it may simply be an artifact of an earlier prototype from where the renders originate. This is the company’s first tablet, after all, so it’s hard to have overly high expectations.

OnePlus has diversified its product range over the past few years, going from simply offering phones to adding smartwatches and wireless earbuds. As Google has been refocusing on tablets with Android 12L and Android 13, it has also recently laid the foundation for any Android manufacturer to build an Apple-style hardware ecosystem of their own, making now a better time than any for a company to dip its toes in the market.

The OnePlus Pad is expected to drop alongside the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus Buds Pro 2 on February 7.

Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) -- $220, was $249

The Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) is a marvel at this price. Easily one of the best smartwatch deals, it covers everything you could need.

Despite that, you still get to enjoy a two-day battery life with the watch easily comfortable to wear all day long.

The Nomad Stand One in carbide.

Tired of your wireless charger making its own way around the desk or bedside table? The way lightweight pads can slip around, seemingly with a will of their own, can be frustrating. That’s why you need Nomad’s new Stand One.

This metal and glass MagSafe charger weighs 613 grams, or just over 1 pound. It’s unlikely to shift about without quite a lot of encouragement. It's likely a bit overkill, but is there anything really wrong with that?
