OnePlus Pad, 11R and more slated to take the stage during upcoming global launch events
OnePlus has just announced that it has more to add to the bill for its upcoming Cloud11 show. The OEM's latest flagship Android smartphone and TWS earbuds were originally set to star during the event; however, it now seems that they will share the stage with additional devices, some of which may steal the show due to their long-awaited nature.
The OEM has also effectively indicated that it will be holding multiple launch events on the same date (February 7, 2023) and time that differ at least slightly by region.
Accordingly, it is expected to unleash the OnePlus 11 with 100W charging along with the Buds Pro 2 on (most of) the European market, via live-stream from 15:00 CET.
North America, on the other hand, is thought to meet an 80W version of the same smartphone (now available to preview on Amazon) along with the new earbuds from 09:00 EST, which should be the first to support Android 13's native Spatial Audio framework in either region.
The India-specific iteration of the same event (to go live from NCR Delhi at 19:30 IST) is now confirmed to introduce the OnePlus TV 65 Q2 Pro - not to mention the freshly-acknowledged 11R - as well as its flagship (probably 100W) 11 counterpart and Buds Pro 2 to that market.
The 10R successor is strongly hyped to debut with its rumored change of screen, the clue being in its new tag-line, "The Shape of Power". It is believed to conform closely to the new 11-series design language otherwise.
However, there are hints that all of these Cloud11 events will have something in common: a OnePlus Pad announcement. The hotly-rumored new device is projected to bring the tablet form-factor (which also gets a nod in the OEM's latest teasers) to the brand.
Its screen size and exact specs remain a mystery, although it is apparent that its flat-edged metallic frame is a plain gray rather than the black or green shades of the on-trend smartphones. OnePlus should reveal its configuration options and price per region during its various upcoming international press conferences.
