Best known for its decent Android phones like the OnePlus 11, OnePlus introduced its first tablet. Called the OnePlus Pad, this Android 13-based device packs an 11.6-inch screen into a slim green metal body and comes with handy extras like fast charging and a robust battery. It goes up for pre-order in the UK and US in April, although OnePlus has yet to say how much you’ll need to splash out to get one.

I liked the feel when I got my hands on it during MWC in Barcelona. It has an all-metal design, which feels solid to hold and I really like the green color which is also common on the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus Buds Pro 2. It was particularly thin in my hands, but at 6.54mm thick. thickness, it’s actually slightly thicker than the iPad Pro. I’m splitting hairs at this point though; it’s certainly thin enough to slip into a backpack and it was comfortable to hold and slide around the Android interface.

The 11.6-inch screen has an unusual 7:5 aspect ratio that’s more aimed at reading books, viewing documents, and browsing the web than pure media consumption. It’s great if you want it more as a business and productivity device, less if you want it browsing your favorite Netflix box sets – those 16:9 aspect ratio videos will have some pretty heavy black bars above and below . Still, the screen is crisp, has a 144Hz refresh rate, and supports Dolby Vision HDR for vibrant colors.

Like most phones in the OnePlus range, the Pad supports 66W fast charging, with a full battery charge from empty apparently taking just over an hour. At 9,510mAh, the battery itself is quite large and OnePlus reckons it will provide up to 14 hours of video playback and up to a month on standby. I got no idea of ​​the battery life in my very limited time, so I’ll reserve judgment on its proficiency here for when I receive a model for proper testing.

The tablet comes either alone or with a keyboard case and a stylus (called OnePlus Stylo, because why not). Both look somewhat similar to Apple’s iPad accessories, but I guess there’s not much room for aesthetic experimentation when it comes to a stylus. If you want a tablet as a work device for emails and more, the keyboard should at least be an essential.

It’s powered by a Dimensity 9000 processor, backed by at least 8GB of RAM (up to 16GB in some markets) and has an 8-megapixel rear and front camera for video calling. . OnePlus also bragged about the Pad’s powerful speakers, but these were difficult to test in the fairly loud hands-on event. Stay tuned for me when we have one for review.
