OnePlus started its consumer tech journey with smartphones. Over the last few years, the brand has been introducing new categories of products such as smart TVs, smartwatches, fashion accessories, and audio products. The company recently confirmed the launch of its first set of monitors. Now, OnePlus has officially confirmed the launch of its very first mechanical keyboard, created in collaboration with Keychron, a brand known for customisable mechanical keyboards.

According to OnePlus Forum, the very first mechanical keyboard from OnePlus will be fully customisable and is based on the technology developed by Keychron. It also said that the company has decided to get into the mechanical keyboard business due to its community and the company has gotten several feedback on the same that has helped the brand to fine-tune the product.

As of now, there is no information on the exact features/specifications of the OnePlus mechanical keyboard. However, the company has confirmed to share more details on the same on December 15. While the brand might not get into the PC segment anytime soon, it is definitely getting into PC accessories by launching products like monitors and gaming keyboards.

What to expect from the OnePlus gaming keyboard?

Gaming keyboards are known for their impressive key feedback, key travel, and sound. Unlike a membrane-based keyboard, a mechanical keyboard is also easy to repair and customise with custom keys and keycaps. However, when compared to a regular keyboard, mechanical keyboards are expensive.
