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.

The wait for Android 15 is over for some owners of some OnePlus devices. With Android 15 Beta 2 expected to launch today, OnePlus is rolling out the Android 15 Beta 1 for owners of the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus Open. Now, keep in mind that this is still a beta, meaning it’s intended for developers and advanced users, and there are still several known issues and bugs.

The update will roll out globally and needs to be manually installed. We highly recommend following the steps OnePlus has laid out in its forum post and backing up the data on your phone since there is a risk of bricking. To upgrade, you’ll need to be running Android and below; versions above it can’t be upgraded without rolling back.

You may have to wait a lot longer for the OnePlus Open 2
OnePlus Open camera module.

The OnePlus Open was released last year and received very positive reviews. However, according to a tipster named @That_Kartikey on X (formerly Twitter), its successor won't be released this year. According to the poster, Oppo does not plan to release a new Find N in 2024. Therefore, we shouldn't expect a next-generation OnePlus Open this year, either.

This news was confirmed by reliable tech rumor source @chunvn8888, who said the release of both handsets is expected in 2025. The devices will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip, which is unlikely to be available for device manufacturers until early next year.
