Oppo’s first tablet targets the Xiaomi Pad 5. Like the latter, Oppo’s tablet comes with a Snapdragon 870 chip!

Among other things, also a 120Hz refresh rate, and a letter-like pattern design at the back similar to the Honor 60

Oppo, during its entire lifetime, has not released any tablets, right up until this point. The Oppo Pad is an iPad Air lookalike with some decent internals, almost similar to that of the Xiaomi Pad 5.

First things first. The Oppo Pad supports a stylus interestingly called the “Oppo Pencil”, which, you guessed it, resembles the Apple Pencil heavily. This high-end tablet is meant for productivity use and is a good alternative to the iPad Air if you don’t like iOS. Though this one has some compromises. For example, the screen is an 11in. WXGA LTPS LCD (2560x1600px) instead of AMOLED. This has been compensated by having a fast 120Hz refresh rate. It also has HDR10 support, which makes it perfect for videographers and artists everywhere that need a bright and colour-accurate screen.

Going back to the Oppo Pencil, it offers 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity along with 240Hz touch sampling rate, which makes the Oppo Pencil very accurate, almost like how an actual pencil would feel.

Inside the phone comes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chip. It may not be the latest chip available, but it still performs its task smoothly, it is a downgraded variant of last-gen’s Snapdragon 888. The tablet does not have LTE capabilities though. This is paired with 6 or 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and either 128 or 256GB UFS 3.1 storage.

There is a single camera on the back. It’s a tablet, you’re not gonna use it a lot for pictures. At the back is a 13mp camera with a LED Flash, at the front is an 8mp camera with fixed focus.

It has a USB-C port, a metallic build, obviously stylus support, as well as Hi-Res Audio with Dolby Atmos, and wireless keyboard support. There are several accessories for it including a kickstand with a magnet to attach the keyboard on and the Oppo Pencil. It runs on ColorOS 12 modified for the tablet, based on Android 11.

Speaking of modified operating systems, the large size of the tablet allows you to run two apps side by side like how a computer does, you can also mirror one app so it opens to the other side of the tablet.

For the battery, it has a modest (for a tablet) 8360mAh battery complemented with 33W fast charging that’s a little slow for tablet standards. There’s also the ability for you to seamlessly transfer files wirelessly from your Oppo phone to your PC.
