OnePlus has announced a wireless mechanical keyboard
OnePlus Featuring Keyboard 81 Pro is the first gadget in the new OnePlus Featuring line. To create the gadget, the company enlisted the support of the well-known manufacturer Keychron.
And in general, the novelty is very similar to the Keychron Q1 Pro model. As you can easily guess, OnePlus Featuring Keyboard 81 Pro contains 81 keys and has an American layout. The body is made of aluminum, there is RGB lighting.
The keyboard is equipped with a Bluetooth 5.1 module, but also supports a wired connection via USB-C. A 4000 mAh battery is installed inside, which should be enough for 100 hours of operation with the backlight turned on at the minimum brightness level.
The OnePlus Featuring Keyboard 81 Pro comes with one of two types of switches – Winter Bonfire (tactile) or Summer Breeze (linear). In the first case, the keycaps are made of PBT plastic, in the second – from a material that OnePlus calls Marble-mallow. Hot-swappable switches are available.
A feature of the keyboard is a slider on one side, the same as in OnePlus smartphones. It serves as a switch between wired and wireless connection. There is also a rotary dial to which you can assign your own functions.
The OnePlus Featuring Keyboard 81 Pro will be available for pre-order this April. The cost has not yet been specified, but a similar Keychron Q1 Pro keyboard costs $199.
