In a slightly unexpected move, despite being teased about a week before today, OnePlus has announced the OnePlus Pad, its first entry into the tablet market. Although launch details are limited, I can at least tell you everything I know about this remarkable big-screen Android device.

The OnePlus Pad in Halo Green is housed in a single metal body with just 6.54mm thick bezels. It has an 88% screen-to-body ratio. This screen is an 11.61-inch LCD panel (2800×2800) with up to 144Hz for some applications, but typically runs at 120Hz when scrolling.

You’ll find it’s powered by Mediatek’s Dimensity 9000 chipset, 8GB or 12GB of RAM, 128GB of UFS3.1 storage, and a single rear 13MP camera. There’s WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, 4 speakers, and a 9510mAh battery with 67W fast charging that fully charges in 80 minutes.

As for the other interesting parts of this story, OnePlus has installed OxygenOS 13.1 to enable multi-screen connectivity between OnePlus and Pad phones. It will use this connection to share your phone’s data connection to connect on the go. It will also ship with a stylus and a magnetic keyboard (or have them available?).

At the moment, OnePlus hasn’t said anything about pricing and has said to wait until April when we can pre-order. You’re doing it?
