OnePlus Keyboard Developed in Collaboration with Keychron to Offer a Customizable Layout – NewsNaija.com.ng


OnePlus has teased more details about its upcoming keyboard. The company, earlier this month, confirmed that it is working on its first keyboard in collaboration with Keychron. The keyboard will be available in global markets and is part of the OnePlus Featuring line. OnePlus Featuring products are claimed to offer a “burden-free digital life” and will include products developed by OnePlus in collaboration with other companies.

The OnePlus keyboard is currently in development and has not hit stores yet. The company confirmed the product roadmap and revealed that it will be officially launched in February, with mass production starting between March and May.

There are still a few months to go before we get our hands on the new OnePlus Keyboard. To keep fans and enthusiasts interested, OnePlus has shown off some features of the upcoming keyboard it is developing with Keychron.

OnePlus Keyboard: What you need to know

The OnePlus Keyboard will go on sale in May 2023 in various markets. The company has teased a few details about the keyboard ahead of its February launch. For starters, the keyboard will have an aluminum body. OnePlus stated that the “meticulously crafted aluminum body offers a flawless premium experience.” The robust build quality extends to the elaborate Aerolite touch, delivering a balanced yet lightweight experience.

The most important element of any keyboard is its keys. OnePlus stated that its first keyboard has a double-joint design, ensuring precisely calibrated yet smoother actuation along with satisfying sound. The choice of design is intended to further amplify the experience. OnePlus further revealed that audible sound, which we often hear on mechanical keyboards, is muffled while retaining the superior typing experience.

The keyboard will also come with customizable features. These include hot swappable switches and open source flexible firmware. Hot-swappable functionality allows for quick and smooth switch changes for unique customization. Open source firmware such as QMK and VIA will allow real-time control without the need to update the firmware. Users can easily customize the keyboard for RBG lights or remap keys courtesy of open source firmware support.

Lastly, the keyboard is designed to work seamlessly for both Windows and Mac users. The layout matches the MacBook keyboard and is equally suitable for Microsoft Windows. Linux users will also be able to use the keyboard.

There is no pricing information at this time. Considering that the keyboard comes with premium build materials, we wouldn’t expect it to be priced in the affordable segment. OnePlus has not confirmed any details about it. We can expect the company to announce the India pricing and availability details of the keyboard as we get closer to the sales schedule.
