And just like its high-end sibling, the OPPO Pad Air will apparently also take inspiration from Apple’s naming scheme for tablets. The device has been recently made available for preorder in China through OPPO’s retail website, though potential customers will have to wait until May 23 for its official launch.
Additionally, the Pad Air has been confirmed to support stylus input via the OPPO Pencil. It will likewise be compatible with a first-party keyboard folio case, as hinted at by one of its promo images.
The company has yet to reveal the specs and pricing details for the tablet, but earlier leaks suggest the OPPO Pad Air will sport midrange specs, to go along with a relatively more attractive price tag than the standard Pad.
If the rumors are true, expect a tablet priced under ¥2,000, which translates to roughly $295 or P15,431 converted. The base model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage will reportedly go for as low as ¥1,799 ($265 or P13,880). By contrast, the regular OPPO Pad starts at ¥2,299 ($339 or P17,738).
Under the hood, the OPPO Pad Air is said to be equipped with a 7,100mAh battery that supports up to 18-watt fast charging over USB-C and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G chipset, the same processor inside the OPPO A96 that recently launched in the Philippines with a P15,999 ($305) price tag.
On the audiovisual front, the tablet will reportedly pack quad speakers with Dolby Atmos audio, alongside a 10.36-inch LCD display with 2K resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. The Pad Air will also have a rear single camera of unknown resolution.
