OnePlus Keyboard 81 Pro Design
OnePlus’ mechanical keyboard is equipped with springy thermoplastic elastomer marble-mallow keycaps to make the typing and gaming experience more comfortable. OnePlus utilises aluminium for the bottom case.
The keyboard also has a unique feature to represent the brand, including an Escape and Return button in OnePlus’ traditional red colour. Moreover, there’s a toggle key and a USB Type-C port at the back. The key reassembles the alert slider on OnePlus smartphones and can be used to switch between wired and wireless modes.
The OnePlus mechanical keyboard comes in Dark Grey and Light Grey colour options. OnePlus also allows customers to chose between Winter Bonfire (Red) and Summer Breeze (Blue) switches. The OnePlus Keyboard 81 Pro also has a customisable rotating knob to control things.

The OnePlus Keyboard offers up to 100 hours of battery life on low brightness courtesy of its 4,000 mAh battery. Additionally, a full charge can take around five hours to complete. The keyboard uses Bluetooth 5.1 and has a wireless range of up to 10 metres.
Additionally, open-source firmware like QMK and VIA allow users to do everything from customising the RGB lighting to remapping the keys. Lastly, the OnePlus Keyboard 81 Pro is compatible with macOS, Windows, and Linux operating systems.
