OnePlus may have just revealed the OnePlus Pad 2 design

OnePlus Pad leak 2

The OnePlus Pad 2 may have just been revealed in a new image, giving consumers a potential first look at what the design of the tablet may be like. OnePlus has recently unveiled the OnePlus Pad Pro in China, and the company has posted about it on its official social account on Weibo. It’s suspected that the image of the OnePlus Pad Pro may also be the OnePlus Pad 2. While OnePlus hasn’t confirmed this, it’s possible that ‘OnePlus Pad 2’ will be the name for its global/US release.

Detailed specifics are scarce, but OnePlus does mention a couple of key things that could point to this being the OnePlus Pad 2. For example, in its Weibo post, OnePlus says that the OnePlus Pad Pro will be “the most powerful Android tablet.”

This might suggest that the OnePlus Pad Pro is using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 mobile platform, as this is currently the most powerful mobile chipset on the market. The original OnePlus Pad was powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 chipset. So the key takeaway is that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 would be a notable upgrade from the Dimensity 9000 worthy of calling the OnePlus Pad Pro the “most powerful Android tablet.”

The OnePlus Pad 2 image shows a similar design to the old tablet, but it’s slightly different

It’s tough to tell if this is indeed the OnePlus Pad 2, at least when judging by the design. The OnePlus Pad Pro shown and the OnePlus Pad look essentially the same with very little difference in style. There’s still a big round camera sensor in the middle of the top edge on the back. There are two key differences in the design based on the image that OnePlus shared, however.

Despite being subtle, the OnePlus Pad Pro looks to have a different finish than that of the OnePlus Pad. On the OnePlus Pad, the back has a brushed metal finish and it comes in a color called Halo Green. The OnePlus Pad Pro looks to have no brushed metal look at all. Instead, the finish looks almost matte. The other key difference is the colors. While there is a green color, it’s not the same green as the Halo Green option from the OnePlus Pad by the looks of it. The OnePlus Pad Pro also very clearly comes in a new dark gray or black option as well.

OnePlus was already rumored to be using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3

Back in mid-April, a rumor surfaced that the OnePlus Pad 2 would come powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 mobile platform. This detail hasn’t been confirmed just yet. However, with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 rumor already out there, OnePlus revealing the OnePlus Pad Pro and calling it the most powerful Android tablet adds to the suspicion that this could be the OnePlus Pad 2, just under its own name for the Chinese market.

In addition to those details, the image from OnePlus also shows a keyboard accessory and a stylus pen. OnePlus already offers a magnetic keyboard for the old tablet, but as Android Authority points this keyboard attachment looks newer. The stylus is also a new accessory as OnePlus doesn’t currently offer this in the store.
