The Pad 2 – widely suspected to be OPPO’s version of the OnePlus Pad – has been all but proven to exist through its appearance by name in a new leak. This database listing might confirm that the Pad 2 will connect to Bluetooth using MediaTek silicon – however, the exact identity of its Dimensity-series SoC still remains somewhat of a mystery.

OPPO has been linked to a second-gen Android tablet for some time – now, the alleged slate has experienced its most convincing leak to date. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has now certified the OEM’s Pad 2 (or OPD2201) by name.

Not only has the SIG established that the device exists, it has also homed in on further important specs for the tablet – sort of. A “Component (Tested)link leading off the Pad 2’s main page on this database provides a list of the MediaTek chipsets associated with the slate’s Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity.

They include all of the mid- to top-tier processors that support this standard: the Dimensity 8000; 8100; 8200; 9000; 9000+ and even 9200. Therefore, the upcoming tablet may be, as its leaks have suggested, be powered by one of these SoCs.

All signs point to the higher-end 9000 thus far, which may (hopefully) also prove good news for the upcoming OnePlus Pad.
