OnePlus is expected to take the wraps off a new mid-range phone called the OnePlus Z (or OnePlus Nord) next month. While the company hasn't officially confirmed the phone's launch date yet, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei teased the upcoming phone in a new tweet today.
It's been a while... https://t.co/O61EoIa3Gc— Carl Pei (@getpeid) June 19, 2020
Carl Pei's new tweet links to an older tweet by OnePlus from April 2014, when the company introduced its first flagship phone, the OnePlus One. While the tweet doesn't specifically mention the OnePlus Z, it hints at the possibility of the upcoming mid-ranger launching at the same price as the OnePlus One. The OnePlus One was priced at just $299 for the base 16GB model and $349 for the 64GB model.
If OnePlus does launch the OnePlus Z at $299, the phone will undercut Apple's iPhone SE 2020 by $100 and the Pixel 4a by $50. In India, a leaked survey recently suggested the phone could start at just ₹24,990 ($330). With a sub-$300 starting price, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G chipset, and a 90Hz AMOLED display, the OnePlus Z could prove to be one of the most popular Android phones of 2020.
As we had revealed in an exclusive report earlier this month, the OnePlus Z will likely debut in India on July 10. However, the phone is also expected to be released in other markets across the world, including the U.S. and Europe, before the end of the third quarter.
