OnePlus recently unveiled its first foldable device, the OnePlus Open, powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. This book-style foldable smartphone introduces a novel feature called “Open Canvas,” designed to enhance the user’s multitasking experience on the foldable screen. Open Canvas allows users to effortlessly manage split-screen multitasking, enabling them to work with multiple apps simultaneously, either in full-screen mode or a compact view, all facilitated by intuitive gestures.
Excitingly, OnePlus plans to extend this innovative feature to their inaugural tablet, the OnePlus Pad. The integration of Open Canvas is anticipated to significantly elevate multitasking capabilities on the OnePlus Pad’s sizable 11.61-inch display.
OnePlus stated that they want to add the Open Canvas feature to the OnePlus Pad during a Reddit Ask Me Anything session. They haven’t, however, given a precise release date for this upgrade. “We’ve received numerous requests to introduce the highly intuitive Open Canvas to the OnePlus Pad, and we’re delighted to announce that we’re actively working on it,” the firm said in response to user requests in a comforting statement. Stay tuned for further updates.” This news was initially reported by tipster OneNormalUsername (@1NormalUsername). Given the tablet’s spacious 11.61-inch screen, this enhancement will empower OnePlus Pad users to engage with multiple applications simultaneously.
