Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming OnePlus Z.
OnePlus Z Specs, Features: OnePlus Z Geekbench Listing
OnePlus Z is going to be the affordable variant of the current OnePlus 8. The company’s first ‘Lite’ model will primarily focus in the mid-range segment. The company did experiment with such one model in early years, remember OnePlus X?
As far as the leaks go, OnePlus Z will feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED Full HD+ display offering a 90Hz refresh rate with a punch-hole on top middle.
OnePlus Z will be powered by mid-range Qualcomm 5G chip, the Snapdragon 765G with 12GB RAM and 128GB/256GB UFS 3.0 internal storage. The device will run on Android 10 out of the box with OxygenOS. OnePlus Z will come with a triple camera setup at the back.
OnePlus Z will feature a 48-megapixel main lens, a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Upfront, the OnePlus Z will have a 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 sensor, the whole system backed by a 4,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging support.
OnePlus Z Launch Date: OnePlus Z Launch First In India?
OnePlus will soon be bringing its affordable smartphone in a few weeks. The company CEO has confirmed without giving out the name in an interview. OnePlus Z or OnePlus 8 Lite, the affordable OnePlus smartphone is in works, hinted by OnePlus’ CEO Pete Lau.
Lau also hinted at OnePlus Z first launching in India. Tipped to be coming soon, OnePlus Z launch may happen first in India.
Though, the naming is yet to be confirmed. Most leaks suggest it to be OnePlus Z aka OnePlus 8 Lite, but it’s yet to be officially confirmed. The affordable OnePlus phone will probably make its debut in India and maybe in some weeks from now.
As far as the claims go, the company may get into the mid-range category with OnePlus Z. The company has slowly entered the premium flagship space year by year ditching the flagship killer status. The affordable OnePlus device will help it get back to where it started and have more hold in the entry premium segment.
OnePlus Z Price In India, OnePlus Z Launch Date: Under Rs 30,000?
OnePlus Z launch is said to be happening in July, so it’s just a few weeks away. The live images were recently leaked as well, so thus it hints at an imminent launch though. Now with Lau hinting at the device being in works, it could be coming in a few weeks from now.
It’s for the very first time that OnePlus will launch a different model of its series, and for now, we can expect the OnePlus Z launch in July, or sometime in the same period, preferably mid of 2020.
The leaked OnePlus Z price places it somewhere in and around 30,000 category for India. OnePlus Z (OnePlus 8 Lite) price leaked by tipster Ishan Agarwal previously gave us a western price of GBP 400 (around Rs 37,500), which means it will be considerably lower in India.
