Oppo has just opened pre-orders for a new touchscreen tablet: the Oppo Pad Air. It is currently intended for the Chinese market and completes the range of Oppo tablets after the Pad.
After the announcement of the Oppo Pad, the Chinese brand is once again entering the touch pad market with the Oppo Pad Air, a lighter version of the previous one. Pre-orders have just opened on the manufacturer’s Chinese website, but all the product information is not there.
A tablet with the “Air” of iPad
The design of this Oppo tablet is obviously reminiscent of what we find on the side of the iPad. On the screen side, the Pad Air is equipped with a 10.36-inch Full HD + LCD panel and a definition of 2000 by 1200 pixels. The refresh rate will be lower than on the Pad since it will be 60 Hz. This is information provided by the leaker Digital Chat Station on the Chinese social network Weibo relayed by 91mobiles.
It is compatible with the Oppo Pencil as well as with the keyboard folio case; the first had been unveiled at the same time as Oppo’s first tablet.
Entry-level positioning for the new Oppo tablet
On the hardware side, the tablet will work thanks to the eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor and the Adreno 610 GPU chip. Said processor indicates that this tablet can be used in 4G. To power everything, the battery will have a capacity of 7,100 mAh, which can be recharged at 18 W.
We also have information on audio since the Oppo Pad Air will be equipped with four Dolby Atmos stereo speakers. Regarding the interface, we do not yet know which one it will be, but probably ColorOS for Pad, which is based on ColorOS 12. We can also assume that in a future update, the interface will be based on Android 13, which now adapts to tablets.

The price of the Oppo Pad Air would be 1000 yuan, or 141.40 euros according to the current price. A priori, this tablet will only be intended for the Chinese market; if it were to be released on the European market, the price should be significantly higher.
Oppo is not the only one launching into tablets these days: a few days ago Realme formalized its Pad Mini with a price of around 200 euros. Further back in time, we also have Google which presented its Pixel Tablet at its Google I/O conference.
