Oppo Pad 2 First Impression Review: Will It Be A Worthy Successor?

After launching the Find N2 Flip globally at MWC 2023, Oppo again came back with a launch event for its flagship Find X6 series. The event was held in China on March 21, 2023, and along with the Find X6 series, the company also announced the Oppo Pad 2 and Oppo Enco Free 3. The Oppo Pad 2 is the successor of the Oppo Pad tablet, which was launched in March 2022 and received decent reviews. Here in this article, we will reveal all the specification details of the Oppo Pad 2 and try to ascertain whether it can become a worthy successor to the Oppo Pad.


Body Design

The Oppo Pad 2 has an uncanny resemblance to the newly launched OnePlus Pad in the Cloud 11 event. Built on an aluminum frame with round edges, this Oppo tablet weighs 552 g. Available in two soothing colors, Gray and Gold, the Oppo Pad 2 has a dimension of 258 x 189.4 x 6.5 mm. This Oppo tablet has magnetic pins in the bottom, which can be used to attach the official keyboard that was revealed at the event. Along with the keyboard, a white color stylus with 2.0 ms latency was also unveiled, but it is yet to be seen whether these accessories would be available in the bundle or if users would have to buy them separately. The trackpad of the keyboard is adequate, and the keys have good spacing. The Oppo Pad 2 does not have a headphone jack, but it is equipped with 4 stereo speakers. Similar to other Oppo tablets, this model also does not come with IPX certification.


Display

The second-generation Oppo tablet comes with an 11.61 in IPS LCD display, which supports Dolby Vision and 1 billion colors. The device has a peak brightness of 500 nits and a refresh rate of 144 Hz, which can be adjusted and toned down to 30 Hz if necessary. Similar to the OnePlus Pad, the Oppo Pad 2 comes with a 7:5 aspect ratio, which is ideal for reading e-books or documents. The bezels are relatively thin on the display, and this Oppo tablet has a screen-to-body ratio of around 84.2%. The visuals of the display are vibrant and sharp and have a resolution of 2000 x 2800 pixels with a pixel density of around 296 PPI.


Technical

The Oppo Pad 2 runs on Android 13 with a patch of ColorOS 13.1, and the software experience is smooth and clean with multiple gesture support. The company has not yet revealed how many years of software updates the Oppo Pad 2 will get. Before the reveal of this Oppo Pad tablet, there were rumors that the Oppo Pad 2 would have the Snapdragon 888 chipset. But it has quashed the rumor by putting the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 processor under the hood with 4 nm nodes. The processor was released back in 2021 and has been implemented in several flagships, so you can expect top-notch performance. It is further supported by the octa-core CPU and Mali-G710 GPU. The expandable storage option is not available for this Oppo Pad tablet, but it comes with internal storage and RAM options of 256 GB/ 8 GB, 256 GB/ 12 GB, and 512 GB/ 12 GB.


Camera

You will notice an extensive protruding camera hump in the rear of the Oppo Pad 2, which is placed in the middle of the tablet. This concept design is again similar to the OnePlus Pad, and both models even share the same size primary lens, which is 13 MP. The rear camera has LED flash support and can take 4K videos at 30 FPS. The Oppo Pad 2 comes with an 8 MP selfie camera, which can be used for video calling and has the ability to take 1080p videos at 30 FPS. Both the front and rear cameras are average, as you find on tablets, but they can easily assist in your everyday chores.


Battery And Connectivity

The second-generation Oppo Pad tablet is housed with a 9510 mAh battery, which is surely going to provide an extended time of use over its predecessor, the Oppo Pad, which had a battery of 8360 mAh. The first generation Oppo Pad tablet supported 33 W wired and 5 W reverse wired charging, while the Oppo Pad 2 has a 67 W wired charger, which the company says will juice up the battery from 1 to 100% within 80 minutes. The Oppo Pad 2 is equipped with Bluetooth 5.3 and WiFi 6, but similar to its first generation, it lacks cellular connectivity.


Conclusion

The starting price for the Oppo Pad 2 is 2,999 Yuan ($436/ ₹36,049) and it has received several upgrades from its predecessor. Expect the second-generation Oppo Pad tablet to hit the global market soon, and it is going to provide great competition to the tablets made by Xiaomi and Huawei. With its powerful display and impressive hardware, the Oppo Pad 2 is expected to create waves at this competitive price in the market.
