OPPO Launches Its First Tablet in Australia

OPPO Australia is launching its first tablet within the Australian market – the Pad Air, expanding its ecosystem of products, which already includes smartphones, wearable and hearable devices. The Pad Air goes on sale from today with an RRP of $379.

Developed to deliver the best user experience, the OPPO Pad Air features a beautiful design with the highest performance. The tablet is extremely light and features a gorgeous two-tone metal splicing design and comes equipped with the new ColorOS for Pad, improving the user experience with smart and smooth interactions.

Speaking of the launch, OPPO Australia Managing Director, Michael Tran believes the Pad Air is a natural expansion to OPPO’s product portfolio.

“As a business we’ve been working really hard to develop an ecosystem of products that our consumers would love. Our tablet has been in development for some time now, but we wanted to ensure the product was perfect before bringing it to market. We’re confident we’ve achieved that.

“Not only does the Pad Air look great, the performance, and in particular the ColorOS operating system, means consumers can enjoy a seamless user experience,” said Tran.

Great handfeel combined with a slim and light design

OPPO Pad Air is designed to draw attention and compliment the overall user experience. The upper part of the rear panel combines a 3D texture in an OPPO Glow finish, preventing unwanted fingerprints. It also features grooves that give the tablet a better grip. The lower part of the rear panel has been sandblasted with grains of only 0.15mm, creating a surface that looks slick, but isn’t slippery. At only 440g and 6.94mm thickness, OPPO Pad Air feels light and comfortable.

ColorOS for Pad: an all-new experience for smart and smooth interactions

The new OPPO Pad Air runs on ColorOS for Pad. The operating system supports smart touch interactions such as two-finger split screen, four-finger floating window, and smart sidebar. In addition, there are two new multi-display features that help users maintain continuity across devices. The first is file drag and drop and the second is clipboard sharing. With the former, users can easily transfer files from their OPPO smartphone to OPPO Pad Air, using drag and drop. Once on OPPO Pad Air’s large screen, photos and videos become easier to edit. With clipboard sharing, users can seamlessly copy and paste text across both smartphone and tablet, taking productivity to the next level.

Slim, sleek and seriously fun

Under the hood the OPPO Pad Air is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon® 680 Mobile Platform. Its eight-core architecture allows users to work and play with ease, even when multitasking. The tablet sports a 10.36-inch 2K HD display that has passed TÜV Rheinland’s certification for eye care and boasts low blue light eye protection that effectively reduces eye fatigue. In addition, OPPO Pad Air is equipped with four super large speakers and supports Dolby Atmos, delivering a high-quality sound with clarity for an immersive listening experience. Its large 7,100 mAh battery allows users to watch videos for up to 12 hours, attend video conferences for up to 15 hours, or read e-books for up to 16 hours. The battery will easily support users during the day, be it for work, entertainment, or online classes.

The OPPO Pad Air is a great device for parents and teachers as they can leverage Google Kids Space for children to play, read, watch videos and even create drawings and science projects. The parental controls in the Family Link app from Google helps them manage content, set screen time limits and more from their own device, as long as they have a Google Account.
