Is OnePlus about to change sides? With a DNA well rooted in telephony since its origin, the smartphone producer had until now accustomed us to fairly conventional products for a brand of this type: telephones, watches and headphones mainly filled its offer until now. But a new announcement has reshuffled the cards and extended the brand’s portfolio even further.
OnePlus ventures into the PC universe
The Shenzhen brand has just announced a rather surprising turn, since it now plans to launch a keyboard. It’s on the brand’s new product co-creation platform titled OnePlus Featuring that we find the mention of this future product.
For its design, OnePlus has partnered with Keychron, an expert in mechanical keyboards. A brand that produces customizable models often displaying a fairly interesting price/quality ratio.
The first of a long list?
The brand does not tell us much more about what we could expect from this keyboard, except that it will be fully customizable, with various switches and compatible keys. According the XDA Developers sitea post on the brand’s forum would also tell us that the keyboard would have a durable design with a soft-touch finish.
On the site, the brand invites us to find out more from December 15th. OnePlus has also expressed its intention to forge other partnerships with companies that share a common vision with its own. The commercial launch of this keyboard is expected by the beginning of 2023.
