For now, here’s a detailed report of the OnePlus 11:

Introducing the First-Ever OnePlus Pad

On the official OnePlus page for the Cloud 11 event, we only saw a brief look at the OnePlus Pad. Accompanied by the tagline “Smooth Without Equal”, the tablet had a standard design sporting the same green color as the 11. 

A special keyboard and pen for the OnePlus Pad act as optional accessories. This suggests significant support and effort by the company to make this new addition a success. 

Will it challenge the Samsung Tablets and the iPad line-up? Here’s what the OnePlus Pad offers:

The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 & Other Major Highlights of the Cloud 11 Event

The OnePlus Buds Pro 2

Priced at $179, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 brings a significant upgrade to the original OnePlus Buds Pro. It will be available in green, white, and black colors. It will have a 39-hour battery life with 9 hours of listening for buds only. The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 can also be charged wirelessly. 

Made by the Danish loudspeaker maker Dynaudio, the Buds Pro 2 has world-renowned composer Hans Zimmer as the collaborator. 

Along with the MelodyBoostTM Dual Driver System and Cinematic Spatial Audio as the highlighting features, The Buds Pro also has 2.5x better ANC performance than the original Buds Pro. It will come with dual drivers with a 6mm tweeter and an 11mm woofer.

Other Launches from OnePlus

OnePlus launched the OnePlus keyboard 81 Pro, which will be a mechanical keyboard with USB type C connectivity. It will have an alert slider, a rotary dial, and swappable linear and tactile switches with a bouncy feel. There are no details about the price but it will be launched in April along with the OnePlus Pad. 

Apart from that, OnePlus also announced the OnePlus TV 65 Q2 Pro. Unfortunately, it is only for the Indian market and there is no hint of when or if it becomes global at all. 

Our Thoughts

Of all devices announced, we’re mostly excited about the OnePlus Pad which could be a game-changer in the tablet segment. 

If it’s any good, we can have a market-breaker that may eat up Apple and Samsung’s market share. Then there’s also the Google Pixel Tab that is on the horizon. 

If you are as excited as us and want to keep up with the fast-paced tech world, stay tuned!
