oppo Pad, the company's first tablet, was released in February last year. The slate had decent features, including a large 11-inch display and a Snapdragon 870 processor. However, Oppo did not add cellular connectivity to it, nor did they release a separate cellular variant. Now after more than a year, the company announced a communication feature for the tablet that transforms it into a cellular version in seconds.
Oppo Pad 2, Oppo's latest tablet, already has this feature. Communication sharing will let Oppo Pad users use their phone's cellular data to browse the web, make calls, and check messages. To use this feature, you need to make sure that both devices are logged in to the same Oppo account and that they are within Bluetooth range of each other. Once communication sharing is enabled, the tablet will automatically use the phone's cellular data for internet access.
Oppo says that communication sharing provides a more stable signal and reduces power consumption by about 30% compared to using a hotspot. This feature could help you better utilize the tablet for your daily needs.
As a reminder, the Oppo Pad comes equipped with an 11-inch LCD screen offering a resolution of 2560 x 1600. It has a 120Hz refresh rate, PPI 275, a screen contrast is 1500:1, and a peak brightness of 480 nits.
This slate packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor under the hood, paired with a built-in 8080 mAh battery, which supports 33W wired fast charging. For photography, the tablet gets a rear 13MP camera shooter and an 8MP sensor on the front. Oppo Pad supports Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, Face unlocking, and more. It comes with a starting price of 2299 Yuan ($314).
