The Oppo Pad Neo Goes Official in the Philippines Alongside the Enco Buds 2 Pro

Isn’t this just the OnePlus Pad?

Oppo Pad Neo… hmm, where have we seen this before? Right, with OnePlus. The Oppo Pad Neo is essentially the OnePlus Pad appealing to the mass market. With that said, it’s going to have watered-down specs. While digging through our press release, we also found out that Oppo is launching the Enco Buds 2 Pro as well. Ya know, so that you can enjoy the crispy, smoothie sound while watching on your personal theater.

The brand is recommending you pair the two up with the Oppo Reno11 series to get the complete experience. It’s like when you read instructions on a shampoo bottle and they ask you to use a conditioner after for best results.

So what is the Oppo Pad Neo anyway?

OPPO Pad Neo

As a tablet that speaks for itself, the Oppo Pad Neo is a watered down Oppo Pad, positioned higher than the Oppo Pad Air. The tablet has a perfect rounded rectangle shape with a screen just barely filling the bezels. Its not your hyper-flagship tablet like the Vivo Pad3 Pro so do not expect anything as grandeur as that. The screen here is a modest 11.4″ in size but also still has a decent 2.4K resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. Its aspect ratio is identical to the realme Pad at 7:5.

Oppo is also boasting its blue-light filtering strength. According to them, the display used here can “filter out and reduce the proportion of harmful blue light under 40% right from the source.”

In terms of its chipset, the tablet is using the ever-popular never-going-away MediaTek Helio G99 (not the ultimate version this time) with 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM.

It has an 8000mAh battery with 33W fast charging. Not the largest, and it could have been larger but Oppo claims it can last up to 14.5 hours worth of streaming, watching, or plain browsing through the tablet.

Aside from that, the tablet is Hi-Res audio certified and comes with a quad speaker system which seems to be the standard for many mainstream tablets and we’re thankful this is the case.

It has two 8MP cameras, one located at the back and the other at the front. You can purchase the tablet now for just PHP 15,999. It comes in a single Grey colour, how creative.

OPPO Enco Buds 2 Pro

The Oppo Pad Neo does not have a headphone jack but it doesn’t really matter because it’s a large tablet and using wired earphones is just uncomfortable. Luckily, Oppo launched the Enco Buds 2 Pro so you can still watch your favourite films in glorious spatial sound more personally.

The main highlights of the new buds include a clearer calls, better overall sound, and a more durable build versus the first-gen Buds Pro. It uses larger 12.4mm drivers that delivers deeper bass lines. Usually, a larger driver means that more sound waves can pass through the earbuds delivering a richer sound. However, just like smartphone megapixel count, this alone shouldn’t be your main qualifier for audio quality.

If you have an Oppo phone and connect the buds to Bluetooth, you can access various settings including an equalizer named “Enco Master Equalizer”. If you don’t have an Oppo phone, this equalizer and other important settings and info are available through the HeyMelody app which is downloadable for free on Google Play and the Apple App store.

The Buds 2 Pro also uses AI algorithms to study the environment around it and adjust noise-cancelling features accordingly. In line with getting clear calls, the buds now feature dual mics for that crystal-clear conversations. As for the durability feature, the buds are IP55-certified so it can be used while exercising and will survive a sweat!

Finally, the battery life, one of the most important aspects of TWS earbuds. According to Oppo, the Buds 2 Pro will last for up to 38 hours with its charging case of course. However, the brand did not tell us how long it will last just the buds alone. That’s for you or us to test.

The Buds 2 Pro comes in a singular white colour and is priced at PHP 2,499.

Both the Pad Neo and the Buds 2 Pro are available online through TikTok, Lazada, and Shopee, as well as all authorized 3rd-party and concept stores nationwide.
