OnePlus announces Pad Go tablet, schedules launch for October 6: Details

Chinese electronics maker OnePlus on September 18 announced the Pad Go, an India-exclusive tablet scheduled for launch on October 6. OnePlus said the tablet would bring the OnePlus ecosystem to the larger user-base without them having to compromise with the overall user experience or design. It essentially is a hint that the upcoming tablet would be priced lesser than the OnePlus Pad, which was launched in the country earlier this year.

“This strategic addition underscores our steadfast dedication to innovation, exemplifying our enduring commitment to ‘Never Settle’. The tablet extends the signature OnePlus fast and smooth experience to the masses and will make the big-screen entertainment all the more immersive and affordable,” said OnePlus in a press note.

OnePlus said the Pad Go would get the same design as the OnePlus Pad. This includes the curved-edge design, the distinctive green tone, and the centred-camera layout.

“We have consciously retained key design elements to establish a unified visual identity throughout the Pad series,” said OnePlus. “The rear design of the OnePlus Pad Go artfully blends two distinct shades of green, complemented by a collage of textures, featuring both a bright matte metal and glossy finish. This union results in a striking visual impression, setting the ‘Twin Mint’ hue apart and introducing a refreshing aesthetic to the tablet market.”
