Welcome to the OnePlus Pad Review 2023 by Technowize. Here, we are going to shed light on the upcoming smart tablet from the Shenzhen-headquartered company.
We all know that OnePlus is widely celebrated for its supercool range of smartphones, which can flaunt their top-notch camera setups. In recent times, it has rolled out some really cool smart gadgets, apart from smartphones, which possess an array of over-the-top features.
Last year, its OnePlus Nord Watch had a disruptive effect on the global smartwatch market, as it ran riot, fetched massive sales and gave a serious run for money to the elites of the business.
The Shenzhen-based company also started the year 2023, with a bang, as its much-awaited Android flagship OnePlus 11 arrived on the scene amidst much fanfare. And most-recently, it has come up with an unputdownable budget smartphone, in the form of the OnePlus Nord CE 3.
Now it is trying to capture the huge market of tablets with its first-ever shot, the OnePlus Pad that could well hit the bull’s eye. Let’s go deeper and map all the important insights as tech buffs eagerly wait for it to hit the stores.
OnePlus Pad Review 2023
For the uninitiated, the international smart tablet market is largely dominated by the Cupertino-based tech giant Apple and Samsung. Apple lures customers with the USP of enjoying an Apple ecosystem that allows one to easily switch from one device to another and resume the work just where they left it. However, Samsung has also joined the club, of late, as its 2023-smash-hit flagship device Galaxy S23 Ultra, also unlocks a similar environment.
Hence, the market looks quite cluttered and almost impregnable with the top guns holding the fort. In such a scenario, OnePlus has decided to charge a blitzkrieg with its long-awaited OnePlus Pad, which was unveiled only in February, this year.
It’s very interesting that the device is called the OnePlus Pad and not ‘tab’, unlike most of the competitors in the market. This immediately hammers the name iPad, which remains the elite-most offering in the category.
Let’s look at the major highlights of the upcoming device before we move on to the detailed specifications, later in our ‘OnePlus Pad Review 2023’.
