May 23, 2022
In February, we got the first Android tablet by Oppo, the Oppo Pad. It launched with Snapdragon 870 SOC, a 120Hz panel, and more. Now, the company has launched a budget tablet in China named the Oppo Pad Air. While the Oppo Pad started at ¥2299 or around $360, the Pad Air starts at ¥1299 or well under $200. So, this price difference should give you an idea that there are some significant downgrades over the Oppo Pad.
Design-wise, the Oppo Pad Air has a two-tone design on the back that looks unique, a single camera with no flash, Quad speakers with Dolby Atmos, a power button on the top, and no 3.5mm headphone jack. The tablet is 6.94mm thick and weighs 440g.
Under the hood, there is the Snapdragon 680 SOC, so there is a massive performance difference compared to Snapdragon 870-powered Oppo Pad. The battery size is 7,100mAh, and the tablet supports 18W fast charging. The camera on the back has an 8MP sensor, whereas the one on the front has a 5MP sensor.
Finally, there is a 10.36-inch display with a resolution of 2000 × 1200 pixels and a 60Hz refresh rate. Android 12 runs out of the box.
Oppo Pad Air comes in three storage options and here is the pricing –
4GB + 64GB – ¥1299 (~$195)
4GB + 128GB – ¥1499 (~$225)
6GB + 128GB – ¥1699 (~$255)
You can also buy a stylus along with the tablet, which costs ¥299 (~$45). The keyboard cover costs ¥349 (~$50). It will go on sale in China on June 1st.
