OnePlus is not just announcing a new smartphone on February 7. The brand will unveil its very first tablet, but it is not sure that it will arrive in France.
The OnePlus 11 will be back in the spotlight on February 7. Already formalized in China, the new smartphone will not arrive alone and a first keyboard must accompany him. The brand will also take the opportunity to announce its very first tablet. Long mentioned, the OnePlus Pad had disappeared from the radar a little lately.
It returns to the fore just before the event and it is OnePlus India which discreetly confirms its release. The manufacturer has released a teaser showing the OnePlus 11 and the Buds Pro 2 placed on a sort of transparent shelf. If it’s not easy to distinguish a tablet in this image, it’s hard not to think of the OnePlus Pad. On the brand’s Indian site, there is even a dedicated tab to the future tablet.
For now, no information has leaked regarding the technical characteristics of the tablet. On the other hand, a first official image was published by the brand on its site. It presents the back shelf and confirms a certain resemblance with the new OnePlus 11 5G. The photo block takes up the circular design “inspired by black holes” du smartphone.
Interesting detail, the photo block takes place in the center of the tablet rather than in an angle. The manufacturer suggests that this is the ideal position for taking pictures, because the camera is “center at the level of your sight”. We also learn that the Pad has an aluminum casing with slightly rounded edges. The brand assures the TechRadar site that these choices have been made for the comfort of the user, even in the event of intensive use.
An Oppo Pad Air inspired by the OnePlus 11?
In addition to this first image, unofficial renders have just been released by OneLeaks and the website MySmartPrice. They confirm the design of OnePlus and allow to get an even more precise idea of the first tablet of OnePlus. It is specified that the OnePlus Pad would carry a single sensor with an LED flash on the back. A light configuration, but photo and video are secondary elements on a tablet. We would also be entitled to an 11.6-inch screen.

OnePlus could take inspiration from theOPPO Pad Air, the first tablet from its parent company. Indeed, it is not uncommon to see two similar brands decline similar products under different names. We will know more next February 7 during the event organized in India. It may also be that OnePlus reserves its first touch pad for the Indian market.
