OnePlus enters the tablet game with the OnePlus Pad
As expected OnePlus delivered its first tablet today, dubbed simply Pad.
The new offering lands in the premium tablet segment with a Dimensity 9000 chipset, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB UFS 3.1 storage. It also carries a distinct design, so you'll never mistake it for another maker's slate.
Upfront, the OnePlus Pad offers an unusual 7:5 aspect display - an aspect sitting between 3:2 and 4:3. It's an 11.61-inch 2800x2000px IPS LCD with a variable refresh rate that goes up to 144Hz.
The panel reaches 500 nits and offers solid 1400:1 contrast. OnePlus says the thin bezels allow for a 88.14% screen-to-body ratio.
There back spots a 13MP shooter that's 4K video-capable. There's an 8MP 1080p camera on the front as well.
The OnePlus Pad has four speakers, one for each corner of the tablet, with support for Dolby Atmos. The display supports Dolby Vision.
There's a 9,510mAh battery inside the OnePlus Pad that's good for 14 and a half hours of video streaming and 1 month of standby. It recharges at 67W SuperVOOC speeds and OnePlus touts a full charge in 80 minutes. OnePlus offers seamless transitions between the Pad and OnePlus smartphones including the option for the tablet to use the phone's network connection to access the internet.
The OnePlus Pad comes in a OnePlus 11-matching Halo Green color and a 'Star Orbit' engraving, which issues etched lines in the CNC machined aluminum back panel, that flow from the rear-facing camera.
You can buy an additional Magnetic Keyboard, a Folio case, and the OnePlus Stylo - a stylus for note-taking and drawing on the OnePlus Pad.
The OnePlus Pad will go on pre-order in Europe, India, and North America this April. There's no pricing information just yet.

"It also carries a distinct design, so you'll never mistake it for another maker's slate." One month later and the Oppo Pad 2 is going to have the same exact design. Welcome to the tech world.

If this doesn't include a headphone jack and MicroSD slot, this is a fail. There's easily enough space for both. Tablets are so gimped in functionality vs laptops with Windows or Linux it's not even funny.

I never heard Dimensity 8100 or 9000 are having this issue, but yeah, Snapdragon 888 and 8 Gen 1 are having this heating issue.
