OnePlus will be releasing OnePlus z in July due to Covid19. OnePlus is now working with ODM manufacturers design and ship the phones than OnePlus will put the branding to release budget-oriented phone.
OnePlus comes with 6.4 inches HD+ AMOLED (403 ppi) full screen display with a small punch hole at top, 90Hz refresh rate, and comes with a protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
According to the leaked images online, OnePlus z or OnePlus lite just looks like Samsung A51 but with little larger bezels and have a speaker grill at the top. But, the Camera punch hole is small than the Samsung.
Rear Camera consist of regular module with 48 MP + 16 MP. In the front we get a 12MP Selfie Shooter
Rectangular back Camera Module just looks like Samsung S21 rear camera regular module.
Chipset or Silcon
Earlier OnePlus leaks were that they will be using Dimensity 1000 which quite powerful GPU but Mediatek has its own issues of heating, not much support for custom roms and modded apps like GCam.
OnePlus has now finally decided to switch to Snapdragon 765G (5g) based on 7nm architecture. It might be that they have again listened to there consumers as always. All previously launched OnePlus popular phones are using Snapdragon Soc and have the largest number of custom roms.
In case of performance and power, An-tutu Score of Dimensity 1000 (3980000) is higher than Snapdragon 765G (322000).
But, Snapdragon 765G is newer processor in midrange segment. So, it is expected that it will perform better than previous Snapdragon SOCs with Oxygen OS by its side. This Soc can bring more advantages for developers than Mediatek Soc.
This phone is coming with 4000 mAh battery with warp charge 30T. You might be thinking why not include 65W charger it’s because they want to achieve wireless charging as fast as wired than they will include both 65W wired and wireless
It is expected that it will be priced from Rs. 23,999.
Z lineup is just a test by OnePlus, in the mid-range market if this phone is a success than we might see more mid-range phones in the future.
