- The OnePlus Keyboard will come with hot-swappable keys.
- It will have multiple colourful buttons.
- There will be support for RGB lights as well.
OnePlus, late last year, confirmed the launch of its first keyboard. The company will partner with keyboard maker Keychron for the launch of the first OnePlus Keyboard. At the time, OnePlus did not confirm any exact launch date. However, the launch of the first OnePlus Keyboard has now been officially confirmed in a tweet.
The upcoming OnePlus keyboard India launch event will be hosted on February 7. This means that the computer peripheral will be launched alongside OnePlus’ flagship smartphone and the Buds Pro 2 TWS earbuds. Let’s take a look at the OnePlus Keyboard launch timeline, leaked image, features and everything else known so far.
OnePlus Keyboard India Launch Timeline and Features
The video in the tweet also gives us a partial look at the details about the design of the keyboard. Ahead of the official launch, a live image of the keyboard has leaked. The mechanical keyboard is white in colour and the top right corner of the keyboard has a rotary knob, which can be used to adjust the volume, scroll through the screen, zoom in/ out, etc.
The Enter key seems to have a red colour, which would be a first for any OnePlus product. We also see the Function row keys in grey and white colours. The keyboard’s right corner has the Page Up/ Down and Delete keys below the rotary knob. This suggests that the OnePlus Keyboard would not provide a full-size keyboard experience with a dedicated number pad. It will have a slider key for power and Bluetooth as well as another one to switch between Mac and Windows Modes.

The company has confirmed some details about its upcoming keyboard. It will have a Double Gasket Design, which ensures a precisely calibrated yet softer actuation paired with a satisfying sound. The keyboard will offer customisation options, including hot-swappable switches and flexible, open-source firmware. Open-source firmware like QMK and VIA will allow for real-time control without reflashing firmware. Users can customise the keyboard for RBG lights or remap keys easily, courtesy of open-source firmware support. Users with a Linux system can also connect the keyboard to their devices.
Based on the previous timeline, we can expect the upcoming OnePlus keyboard to be available for purchase in India by March 2023. There is no official word from the company about the launch or sale date yet. We will share more details about the same as and when available.
