Yesterday, rumors of a OnePlus Tab from the Chinese-phone maker surfaced online after Evleaks shared an alleged leaked photo from the company’s internal website. Unfortunately it looks like the entire thing may have been a hoax, and today OnePlus said it has no plans for a tablet, calling the leak a total fake.
OnePlus (official): "No tablet coming out – photo was photoshopped." Will update with more … – http://t.co/AGYL2BNzQW

We’re definitely disappointed to hear that OnePlus won’t be rolling out a Cyanogen-powered tablet in the near future. We’d love to see the company apply the same strategy of matching great design and specs with a budget-friendly price that we saw with the OnePlus One. Of course, it’s possible OnePlus is in fact developing a tablet, but it’s clearly not ready to make any sort of official announcement at this point either way.
Evleaks actually had a second piece of bad news on Thursday concerning a second alleged leak shared earlier this week. A blurry photo and accompanying specs for HTC’s rumored Nexus tablet are fake as well, and the work of a “14-year-old posing as a Google engineer.” Unfortunately, that means we’re back at square one when it comes to HTC’s mystery tablet, though hopefully Google will make an official announcement in the near future.
