Why does this story matter?
OnePlus is a leading brand that is widely popular for a range of products, including smartphones, TWS earbuds, and televisions. However, it has yet to break into the tablet market, which is largely dominated by Lenovo, Samsung, and Apple. With Realme and OPPO already in the game, it is time for the third member of the BBK group, i.e., OnePlus to join the fray.

The tablet is expected to boast a 12.4-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 16:10 aspect ratio. It may arrive in at least two color options.
It could offer a 13MP primary sensor
The OnePlus Pad may feature a dual rear camera unit, including a 13MP main lens and a 5MP secondary camera. On the front, it could have an 8MP selfie shooter.
A Snapdragon 865 chip may power the device
The OnePlus Pad may pack a Snapdragon 865 chipset, paired with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. The tablet is expected to boot Android 12L OS, and it could house a 10,090mAh battery with 45W fast-charging support. For connectivity, it should offer support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Type-C port.
