Oppo Pad is the first tablet of the Chinese brand, with an iPad design and an affordable price

In addition to all the different models in the Find X5 lineup, Oppo also launched a tablet this week, which could be an interesting alternative to what Apple and Samsung are offering in the high-end segment. Simply called Oppo Pad, it’s the Chinese company’s first tablet and offers capable hardware at an affordable price, although you can’t compete on par with models like the iPad Pro with M1 processor or the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S8.

Oppo Pad comes with a powerful processor and a QHD screen

Based on a Snapdragon 870 processor, the new Oppo Pad will by no means be a slow device. This processor has been used by more high-end mid-range phones or more modest high-end phones in 2021 and has proven to be a successful model. Basically, this processor uses the same configuration as the Snapdragon 865, but comes with higher frequencies for significant performance.

The Oppo Pad will use 6 or 8 GB of RAM, as well as an 11″ screen with a 16:10 QHD LCD panel. In addition to the tablet, Oppo also offers a stylus called Oppo Pencil, for those who need a Such a productivity accessory.With an 8,360mAh battery and 33W charging, the tablet should offer many hours of use, in exchange for about an hour and some power for a full charge.

However, it is difficult not to compare the design adopted by Oppo to that of the iPad Pro, or even the Galaxy Tab S8 tablets from Samsung. We are talking about straight edges, a very thin casing and a frame that is neither too small nor too large around the screen. On tablets, unlike phones, too narrow a bezel can provide an inferior user experience because you need a larger gripping area without covering the screen with your fingers when in use.

The tablet will initially be available in China at a price of 2,299 yuan, or around 325 euros. Oppo Pencil will cost 499 yuan (70 euros) and the keyboard 399 yuan (55 euros). The availability of Oppo Pad in Europe has not yet been announced.
