OnePlus Z Might Launch This Summer

Friday, 01 May, 2020

There's up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage options available for both phones but the company launched a special 6GB+128GB variant for the OnePlus 8 in India. According to several rumours, the OnePlus Z could feature a MediaTek 1000 SoC instead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 or the mid-range Snapdragon 7X series of SoCs. OnePlus Z could be the device that never made it to the market, the newest OnePlus installment. Perhaps this was a move to let the OnePlus Z get its time in the spotlight, and detach itself from being the "OnePlus 8 Lite" many assumed it would be.

Recently OnePlus Z live images were leaked revealing the complete design.

A reliable tipster Max J has posted an image teaser indicating the same. We look forward to the OnePlus Z smartphone.

Now, a new report claims that the OnePlus Z smartphone will be officially launched in July this year. T-Mobile and Verizon are only offering the OnePlus 8 model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. OnePlus Z will come with a triple camera setup at the back.

Obviously, the OnePlus Z will lack most of the OnePlus 8/8 Pro's core, flagship features - things like IP67 water-resistance, wireless charging, the 865 processor, and 12GB of RAM. The set also includes a secondary 2-megapixel macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture along with a tertiary 12-megapixel camera sensor with f/2.2 aperture.

Other important features including an in-display fingerprint scanner, face unlock, stereo speakers, Dolby Atmos support, USB-C 3.1, NFC and so on.

The image, shared by TrueTech and visible below, shows a phone with a design that's in some ways quite different to the OnePlus 8 range, as unlike those handsets this has a flat screen, and its punch-hole camera is positioned in the top center, rather than the top left corner of the display.

The smartphone sports a 6.78-inch QHD+ Fluid AMOLED display that has a resolution of 1440 x 3168 pixels and a 120 Hz refresh rate.

There is a 48-megapixel main camera, there is a 48-megapixel ultra-wide camera, an 8-megapixel telephoto camera and a 5-megapixel colour filter camera. It could be offered for a much less price than its flagship devices like the latest OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.
