Not much is known about the alleged tablet as of now. However, it could be a mid-range tablet similar to the recently launched Realme Pad. Realme Pad starts at Rs 13,999 for the WiFi (3GB RAM/32GB storage) option. It goes up to Rs 17,999 for the LTE + WiFi (4GB RAM/64GB storage) option. We expect the OnePlus Pad to launch at a similar price point.
In a separate report, OnePlus is expected to host a physical launch event on January 5 during CES 2022 in Las Vegas, where it might launch the awaited OnePlus 10 series. Both the OnePlus 10 and the OnePlus 10 Pro are expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC.
Furthermore, the OnePlus 10 Pro is tipped to sport a 6.7-inch quad HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The device is expected to feature up to 12GB of RAM, up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, an IP68 dust and water resistance rating, and a 5,000mAh battery.
