The premium Android tablet industry is not crowded, with a lot of options in the mid-range and budget segment, but there is not much to talk about in terms of high-end offers. Therefore, the arrival of the OnePlus Pad was exciting, given its price and decent hardware. Although it does not offer the pure Super AMOLED advantages of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra, it is still a worthy challenger to other high-end tablets. A few months after its launch in May, we found reports of a limited-budget spin-off in the works, supposedly known as OnePlus Pad Go. A Twitter source is now announcing the hardware specifications of this low-cost device shortly before its arrival.
The unveiling was made by One Normal Username on X / Twitter and complements some of the information already revealed by the manufacturer, including the presence of Dolby Atmos speakers and the 11,35-inch display with 2,4 K resolution.according to the user, the OnePlus Pad Go, codenamed bluey, will have at least one variant with 256 GB of UFS 2.2 storage space and 8 GB of RAM, although a 128 GB model could also be included on the cards.
Three weeks ago, we first heard of the OnePlus Pad Go (bluey).
OnePlus started teasing it and shared some specs (Dolby Atmos support, 11.35" display with 2.4K resolution).
I am now sharing more information:

In addition, the person shows the addition of a single 8MP rear camera, which is supported by an 8MP selfie unit. As expected, USB-C is also integrated, although it uses the older USB 2.0 standard. Regarding the underlying processor, the source talks about the presence of the eight-core MediaTek Helio G99 (MT6789) chip and an 8,000 mAh battery. The Linux kernel 5.10.149-android12-9 is also mentioned, supplemented by the model numbers only for Wi-Fi (OPD2305) and cellular (OPD2304).
Although we initially believed that the OnePlus Pad Go would be launched in January next year along with OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12r, the fact that OnePlus is already teasing the arrival of the tablet on social networks suggests an earlier launch. The appearance of the budget tablet in the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) database earlier this month suggested that the country may be the first to receive the tablet. Meanwhile, OnePlus could not keep the secret to itself and shared a rendering of the tablet last week.
