According to a report by the Chinese publication, ITHome, insiders have revealed that OPPO is already in talks with suppliers (we presume component suppliers) for its first tablet. No names were mentioned, so we do not know who OPPO’s partners are for the components but we want to believe the bulk of them will be local suppliers.
A lot is still unknown about OPPO’s first tablet. The manufacturer will be going against Apple, Samsung, Lenovo, Huawei, Honor, and a few other brands still in the tablet business. The tablet market which was facing a decline a few years ago picked up sales in 2020 thanks to the pandemic which forced schools to close and students to learn virtually. This may be the reason why OPPO thinks it should launch a tablet too.
We expect OPPO’s first tablet to run Android out of the box and launch first in China before it makes its way to other markets. It has also been reported that Xiaomi plans to launch a new model of its Mi Pad tablet line this year. It remains to be seen if it will be announced before or after OPPO’s tablet.
