Share this note with your friends.

All the hype about the amazing Reno 8 and OPPO Pad Air is about to come to an end. Apart from the Reno 8 series, OPPO seems to be gearing up for the launch of the OPPO Pad Air in India in July.

The OPPO Pad Air is speculated to launch alongside the Reno 8 line-up. However, sources have claimed that the Reno 8 line-up will debut by late June or early July in the country, while Pad Air might be launched in August 2022. Unfortunately, the company has little to no information on the OPPO Pad Air’s configurations, color options, and price, especially for the Indian market. You can find many OPPO variants here.

The tablet is currently being tested in the country alongside the Reno 8 and Reno 8 Pro smartphones. Both devices, to recall, have already been introduced in China. Accordingly, the Reno 8 line-up comes with some flagship-grade specifications, such as an 80W fast charging solution, 50MP cameras, and up to 120Hz refresh rate screens. Let us go through the specifications of the Reno 8 series and Pad Air that we are aware of.
