The OnePlus Pad (confirmed) and OPPO Pad 2 (still rumored) are now said to be new Android tablets with suspiciously similar builds. As the latter is expected to launch with near-flagship specs, this new tip invites speculation that the latter will be the more premium of the two. It is, for example, now also slated to debut with a refresh rate to match its charging speed.

Many OnePlus fans may be even now eagerly gearing up to order its long-awaited first-gen Android tablet. However, according to the prolific leaker Digital Chat Station, the company's very own 'co-brand' OPPO intends to make their lives a little more complicated by releasing its own version of the very same Pad.

The tipster now indicates that OPPO's second-gen flagship tablet might indeed turn up with the same ~11-inch metallic chassis and Dell XPS 13 9315-esque camera hump as OnePlus' own inaugural slate. Furthermore, not only might the BBK Electronics subsidiary steal its sibling brand's thunder, it just might outdo it too.

The "OPPO Pad 2" is expected to improve on its predecessor with the high-end Dimensity 9000 SoC, most recently touted to drive a 144Hz refresh rate for its high-res display on top of that.

Its allegedly ~9,500mAh battery is also now slated to support the same 67W charging tech as the Reno9 series, whereas nothing of the sort is said for its supposed OnePlus twin thus far.

All in all, the "Pad 2" might stand the better chance of competing with other rumored rivals such as the Xiaomi Pad 6 series, while also possibly matching well with the Find X6 Pro as rendered to date.

Then again, it is also possible that it just might end up being the OEM's Chinese-market version, with a putative OnePlus Pad re-brand that goes on to be more of a global device.
