According to the latest leaks, OPPO's third-gen flagship Android tablet (or, possibly, the OnePlus Pad 2 for the global market) will launch looking a lot like its predecessor - just bigger, brighter, clearer and more powerful. It is also now tipped to come with its own updated stylus and keyboard. Then again, other specs reportedly remain unchanged compared to the original OnePlus Pad.

OnePlus is projected to unleash a second-gen Pad on the international market in 2024, although it might do so in China first as the Pad 3 from a twin brand OPPO. In either case, the slate did so with a unique 7:5 display aspect-ratio.

Those dimensions are actually back in the tablet's successor, according to Digital Chat Station - although the display in question will be bigger, at 12.1 inches diagonally, thereby possibly making for the metal unibody with the most distinctive footprint of the year.

Accordingly, the "Pad 3" would need a new keyboard dock - which it will get, as the legendary tipster now indicates, along with a second-gen OPPO Pencil (or OnePlus Stylo). This stylus is slated to get a linear motor in 2024, which might boost its feedback while writing or drawing on the tablet's "custom"-shaped LCD display.

On that note, that screen is once again backed to upgrade its resolution from 2.8K to 3K, and also to be brighter at 900 nits. It will remain at a 144Hz refresh rate, however, with the same selfie (and rear) camera resolution. Digital Chat Station also now hints that the upcoming OnePlus Pad 2 might be available in gray as well as the green of its forebear.

The Pad 2 (or 3) is also, of course, thought to stick with virtually the same battery size and charging speed as its 2023 counterpart. Finally, those who are used to the Find X7 Ultra and its optical fingerprint sensor might be disappointed to learn that OPPO's next-gen tablet lacks a similar function, not even in the power button.
