OnePlus also announced its first mechanical keyboard, the OnePlus Featuring 81 Pro Keyboard, at its Cloud 11 event. It’s the first keyboard with marble-mallow keycaps, which use a patented thermoplastic elastomer to produce a springy bounce with each press and provide users with maximum comfort and functionality.
OnePlus has incorporated an aluminum-crafted lightweight body design. The keyboard’s gasket design ensures a precisely calibrated yet softer actuation, as well as a satisfying sound. There’s also a keyboard holder in it which lets it stand alone.
It has customizable features such as hot-swappable switches and open-source firmware. OnePlus collaborated with leading keyboard manufacturer Keychron to develop a keyboard layout and connection that works with a variety of operating systems, including macOS, Windows, and Linux.
