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 OnePlus 12 just leaked again, and it sounds incredible
Leaked OnePlus 12 render

It seems OnePlus won’t have much left to reveal when its next flagship is officially announced next year. After leaking alleged renders of the OnePlus 12, OnLeaks (via SmartPrix) has now dropped the purported specs sheet of the upcoming budget flagship. 

The OnePlus 12 is said to draw power from Qualcomm’s yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. Rumors suggest it will be based on TSMC’s next-gen 3nm process node, which means a significant performance and efficiency boost can be expected compared to the 4nm-based Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip.

Is this our first look at the OnePlus 12?
Leaked OnePlus 12 render

The next flagship from OnePlus might not serve much of an aesthetic surprise, but it just might win over mobile photography enthusiasts. SmartPrix (in collaboration with @OnLeaks) has shared purported renders of the upcoming OnePlus 12 "based on real-life pictures of a testing unit prototype."

Now, before we dig further into the juicy details, here's the standard disclaimer. The leak comes from a reputed source, but the renders depict a testing stage device, of which there could be multiple iterations. That means the final device hitting the shelves could look slightly – or much – different.
