Oppo has recently taken the wraps off its Oppo Reno 8 series in China. The lineup brings the Oppo Reno 8, Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 Pro+. Each one brings a 2022 chipset, the vanilla brings the Dimensity 1300, whereas the Pro has the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. The top of the line model has the Dimensity 8100. The devices certainly took the spotlight at the keynote. However, as expected, Oppo also used it to present its new affordable tablet and new Oppo Enco R Buds. The Oppo Pad Air arrives as the company’s second Android tablet, and brings a massive 10-inch LCD. The specifications, however, are mid-range based. The Oppo Enco R buds, are also affordable wireless earbuds featuring 13.4 mm drivers combined with a 24-hour rated battey life.
Oppo Pad Air specifications
The Oppo Pad Air flaunts a 10.36-inch IPS LCD screen with 2,000 x 1,200 pixels of resolution. Unfortunately, it has just a 60 Hz refresh rate, but we assume that there wasn’t room for a high-refresh rate given to the display’s size and targeted price. Moving on, the slate brings Quad Speakers with Dolby Atmos for rich multimedia consumption. The device honors the Air name with just 440 grams of weight. Interestingly, there is an 8 MP main rear camera and a modest 5 MP selfie shooter.
