Two weeks ago, OnePlus formalized a new project to enrich its product ecosystem. This is a mechanical keyboardsuggesting that the brand was going to develop there, a bit like Huawei, Honor or Samsung. Two pieces of information were then revealed about this product. First, it is designed in partnership with one of the leading specialists in this segment, Keychron. Then the commercial release is scheduled for early 2023. Maybe at the same time as the OnePlus 11?

Since then, it has been radio silence. And over the past two weeks, we have obviously tried to imagine how OnePlus could enter this market in an unprecedented way. Would the design be different? Will value-added services be innovative? How to differentiate this keyboard from the many competitors already strongly established, such as Logitech, Razer, Corsair, Steelseries or Roccat? The more time progressed, the more our imaginations became fertile. Till today.

And especially with typical environments Samsung DeX Where Motorola Ready For, for instance. It is equipped with USB type-A and type-C ports. And it is compatible Bluetooth 5.2. So you can use it with any machine. The keyboard frame is made of aluminum and plastic. Last detail, the price: the keyboard would be sold in India between 90 and 110 euros approximately. In France, it would be offered much more expensive, of course. Hopefully it won’t be too expensive either.
