When you think of tablets and the iPad pops in your head even if you’re an Android user, we don’t blame you. Apple’s iPad has become synonymous with tablets so the point where even Android users largely concede that Apple has the tablet market in the bag, but it seems that it isn’t stopping Android manufacturers from trying.
According to a post on Weibo by user Digital Chat Station, they claim that Oppo could be looking to dip their toes into the tablet market. Based on the rough translation of the post, it seems that Oppo could be planning a high-end tablet where it could feature a similar design to that of the Huawei MatePad Pro.
It will apparently feature ColorOS as its platform of choice, feature a dock bar with support for desktop widgets, and it seems that it can connect with Oppo’s other products like its smartphones, smartwatches, and Bluetooth headphones for continuity-like features. There’s no word on when the tablet is expected to launch, so we’ll have to keep our eyes peeled.
That being said, we have to wonder about Oppo’s decision to enter the tablet market. With Apple more or less dominating the scene, Android tablet’s never really got the chance to flourish. We suppose all it could take is one killer tablet to really turn things around, but whether or not Oppo’s upcoming tablet will be that killer device remains to be seen.
