A new contender is supposedly planning its entrance into the growing tablet market that is dominated by Apple's iPads. The Chinese brand OnePlus could be a breath of fresh air for Android's ailing tablet segment, which is primarily dominated by Samsung and its Galaxy Tab lineup.

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus, a company well-known for its flagship killer smartphones like the current OnePlus 9 (US$649 on Amazon), is reportedly working on its first Android tablet. On July 1, OnePlus officially registered the trademark 'OnePlus Pad' at the European Union's Intellectual Property Office, which can be interpreted as a clear indication that the brand is about to enter a tablet market that has grown substantially due to work and learn from home arrangements during the pandemic.

Although the OnePlus Pad name already hints at what type of device we should expect, the trademark has been registered in more than a dozen categories, including the tablet computer category. In addition to the filing, there have been rumors that Oppo, OnePlus' parent brand, is also working on its first tablet. Considering the progressive integration of the Oppo and OnePlus brands, it does not seem far-fetched that we could soon see both companies releasing their very first Android-based tablets.

If these rumors turn out to be true, the OnePlus Pad would have to compete against devices like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 (US$514 on Amazon), which according to our review is currently the best Android tablet on the market.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
