Meet the iQOO Pad 2 & Pad 2 Pro: Powerful Tablets for Every Need

iQOO Pad 2 series has been unveiled in China. The series brings two new tablets to the market comprising the vanilla iQOO Pad 2 and a more expensive iQOO Pad 2 Pro. Both tablets provide high performance, and display specifications targeting multimedia consumers and gamers. However, each tablet has a different price range. We will check out each tablet individually below, but first, let’s begin with the design.

iQOO Pad 2 Series Design

Both tablets have an identical design language with a circular camera module on the rear. The tablet maintains a clean and elegant look, with minimal aesthetic additions. The colors are also sophisticated including silver, blue, and gray. The iQOO Pad 2 has a 6.57mm thickness and weighs 589.2 grams. Meanwhile, the Pad 2 Pro is a larger device and hence has a 6.64mm thickness and weighs 679 grams.

iQOO Pad 2 Specifications & Features

Starting from the vanilla model, the iQOO Pad 2 features a 12.05-inch LCD panel. This offers a resolution of 2800 x 1968 pixels. For gamers out there, the tab supports a high 144Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate. Multimedia consumers will appreciate the HDR support, P3 color gamut, and 10-bit colors. Hence, the display is a full package. Also, the bezels seem equal which is a good plus, as some bezels are required to comfortably use a tablet.

Moving to the camera department, the tab gets an 8MP rear shooter and a 5MP front shooter for selfies. Clearly, this is not a camera-centric device, as indicated by its specifications. However, the performance is not compromised thanks to the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chipset. For those unaware, this chip was recently announced and is quite powerful. It draws significant inspiration from the top-tier Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Hence, it is capable of running everything thrown at it; making it ideal for hardcore gamers. The same chip has started powering many phones, and they are getting praised thanks to its high-end gaming experience. According to iQOO, the tablet features a three-dimensional cooling system ensuring the tablet stays cool during extensive tasks.

To make the tab run for a long time, it has a 10,000mAh battery and 44W fast charging support. Other highlights of the device include a six-speaker system, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.4, and USB-C support. Lastly, the iQOO Pad 2 comes with OriginOS 4 based on Android 14 OS.

Gizchina News of the week

The iQOO Pad 2 Pro is a bigger device with a 13-inch LCD panel. This also offers a higher resolution of 3096 x 2064 pixels. While, it still supports 144Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and 10-bit colors. One additional change in display is that the Pad 2 Pro has a peak brightness of 900 nits while the vanilla model peaks at 600 nits.

There are no changes in the camera department, as the Pad 2 Pro gets a similar 13MP shooter on the rear and 5MP on the front. However, in the performance department, the Pad 2 Pro opts for MediaTek’s top-of-the-line Dimensity 9300 PlusĀ chipset. This is also a recently launched chipset, and it is quite capable. It was able to score 2.3M+ score on AnTuTu Benchmarks compared to the typical 1.4M score of Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 used on the vanilla model. As a tech enthusiast, I appreciate iQOO exploring two different chips for their tablets. This will offer consumers more choices as some may prefer Qualcomm and some prefer MediaTek.Ā The Pro model also offers a cooling system.

With a bigger display, there is also a demand for a larger battery. Hence, the iQOO Pad 2 Pro gets an 11,500mAh battery with 66W fast charging. In connectivity, the Pro model offers Wi-Fi 7, Bluetooth 5.4, NFC, and a USB-C. Similar to the vanilla model, the tab comes out of the box with OriginOS 4 based on Android 14 OS.

iQOO has also given the support of the keyboard and stylus with their new tab lineup. It is good for those who want to use their tablets for working. For more information, check out the official website of iQOO.
