It’s been over a year since we learned of the existence of OnePlus’ first tablet. Finally, the device has made its global debut today at the Cloud 11 event, alongside the OnePlus 11 and a slew of other products. So let’s get into the details of the new OnePlus Pad, along with its specs, features, expected price, and availability in Nepal.
OnePlus Pad Overview:
Design and Display
The OnePlus Pad sports a flat-edge design, which is fairly common in tablets these days. But something that looks unique to the device is an “Oreo-style” camera cutout placed just in the middle, which sets it apart from any other Android tablet in the market. It is home to a 13MP primary camera. Likewise, the tablet is wrapped around a metal chassis and is available in a single Halo Green colorway.
On the front, there is an 11.6” 2K screen with a 144Hz refresh rate. It has an aspect ratio of 7:5 which OnePlus claims will provide more screen real estate for books, games, and web pages. Also, the bezels around the display are relatively thin and the right edge is outfitted with an 8MP camera for selfies and video calls. The screen even has HDR10+ and Dolby Vision certifications—making it suitable for multimedia.
Towards the bottom, you can find pogo pins that you can use to magnetically attach the official keyboard cover. It is a full-size QWERTY complete with a trackpad. In addition to the keyboard cover, OnePlus has also announced an active stylus to use with its tablet.

Performance and Memory
Under the hood, the OnePlus Pad is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000. This chip was first introduced towards the end of 2021 and was actually the world’s first smartphone chip based on TSMC’s 4nm process node. It has a tri-cluster architecture with one Cortex-X2 (@3.05GHz), three Cortex-A710 (2.85GHz), and four Cortex-A510 (@1.8GHz) cores. Likewise, the visual processing is handled by a 10-core Mali-G710 CPU. Needless to say, the OnePlus Pad packs a lot of punch for an Android tablet.
The base version of the tablet sports 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. That said, OnePlus offers multiple memory configurations of the tablet with the top-of-the-line option packing 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.
Rest of the Specs
Fueling the new OnePlus Pad is a 9,5000mAh battery and it brings 67W fast charging. It has a quad-speaker setup with support for Dolby Atmos and Omnibearind Sound Field. OnePlus Pad runs with Android 13-based OxygenOS 13.0 out of the box. This version of OxygenOS brings a few new tablet-centric features. The tablet connects seamlessly connection with OnePlus devices allowing users to share notifications, files, and clipboards. You can even share your OnePlus phone’s 5G network with the Pad.
