What you need to know:

  • OnePlus is expected to release a new high-end tablet, likely named the OnePlus Pad 2, which will supposedly be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset.
  • The tablet appeared on Geekbench with the model number OPD2404, scoring 2,079 in single-core and 6,077 in multi-core tests.
  • The tablet will apparently have at least 8GB of RAM and run Android 14.

It looks like a new OnePlus tablet is in the works, and according to recent benchmark listings, it will likely be called the OnePlus Pad 2 and could be a high-end device powered by a flagship Qualcomm processor.

According to the Geekbench listing, the OnePlus Pad 2 will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, the same processor that will likely power the OPPO Pad 3 (via 91mobiles). This lines up with a previous leak from Max Jambor, which suggested the new tablet will be powered by Qualcomm's latest and greatest chipset.

OPPO and OnePlus are owned by the same parent company, so they often share technology. Therefore, it's reasonable to assume that the specs of the OPPO Pad 3 and OnePlus Pad 2 will be identical.

The next OnePlus tablet has appeared on Geekbench with model number OPD2404, while the original OnePlus Pad has model number OPD2203. The new device scored 2,079 points in the single-core test and 6,077 points in the multi-core test, likely thanks to the processor improvements.

The original OnePlus Pad, launched last year, was equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset. Using 2021 hardware for a 2023 tablet, while decent, was unusual. The OnePlus Pad 2 could solve this problem by using a more modern and powerful chipset.

In addition to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, the benchmark listing reveals that the tablet will have at least 8GB of RAM and will run Android 14 out of the box. The tablet is said to have a massive 9,510mAh battery, presumably with support for fast charging.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is a significant improvement over MediaTek's Dimensity 9000, and could lead to other exciting upgrades, such as a switch from LCD to AMOLED panels, a staple of premium tablets today.

Although these enhancements might increase the OnePlus Pad 2’s price, the company could still offer strong value compared to Samsung’s tablets.
