Gizchina News of the week
The Oppo Pad Neo might introduce a new lineup for Oppo's tablet portfolio. We believe it will be positioned below the Oppo Pad 2, which stands as the company's flagship tablet. It is expected to be positioned higher than the budget-friendly Oppo Pad Air.
While the specifications are currently unknown, we have confidence that it will not disappoint in terms of performance. Since this is the brand's first tablet with 4G/LTE connectivity, it should bring decent specifications to make the deal more attractive. The Oppo Pad 2 features the excellent MediaTek Dimensity 9000 and has a gorgeous 144 Hz refresh rate. The Oppo Pad Neo could be a toned-down version of the Oppo Pad 2. Or better saying, a new device that sits between the Oppo Pad 1 and the Oppo Pad 2.
More Specifications will emerge soon
Considering the NBTC certification is already upon us, it's just a matter of time until more specifications appear in the web. One thing is certain, Oppo will keep pushing its presence in the tablet segment in a bid to ear a good slice of the market share.
