After the launch of the flagship OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro smartphones, the company is now preparing to launch a new budget smartphone by the name of OnePlus Z. While the phone was due to go official with the OnePlus 8 series, that did not happen.
Recently, a new report surfaced online, according to which the OnePlus Z 5G smartphone will be launched in July of this year. Along with this, it has also been said that the phone will be powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1000L SoC.
However, a latest smartphone-related leak claims that the phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset and not the MediaTek Dimensity 1000L as it was said earlier. We hope to learn more about the phone in the coming weeks.
A recently leaked render of the upcoming OnePlus Z shows that it features a cutout for the front camera in the middle of the screen, similar to OnePlus 8 phones. On the back, the phone comes with a tri-camera setup where the sensors are placed on a rectangular module in the upper left corner.
The OnePlus Z 5G should get launched as a successor to the OnePlus X, which was the company's first budget offering. It should be interesting to see how the company places this next smartphone in terms of price and what it plans to offer in terms of features.
