In the last weeks OnePlus climbed into the chair, releasing the highly anticipated top of the range OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. However, many users have not missed the indiscretion that preceded the official launch, concerning the presence of a third smartphone which later turned out to be bogus. At the beginning the reference was on a named phone OnePlus 8 Lite, but now it seems that the name is OnePlus Z.
Yes, because the OnePlus Z smartphone actually appears to exist, and most likely the Shenzhen-based company I will make it official in the coming months. This is reported by a well-known tipster on Twitter, according to which OnePlus has already planned to launch OnePlus Z within the next month of July.
The tipster in question, Max J, however, only reveals the possible date, without specifying the price or key specifications of the smartphone. A sketch shared by the user on Twitter indicates that CEO Pete Lau's next phone will be characterized by a display with a "hole", with centrally aligned cutout: an aspect that had already been leaked in some previous rumors.
OnePlus has not yet officially confirmed the launch of this smartphone. If the rumors were to find confirmation, one can expect that OnePlus Z will arrive on the market at a lower price compared to OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.
But what could be the specifications of this new device of the Chinese company? Some articles published in the past weeks reported a 6.4-inch display and a triple configuration of the rear camera, without any concrete detail on the sensors. In addition, other "reports" speculate that OnePlus Z may be powered by a MediaTek processor. These are obviously simple rumors, pending the famous brand to communicate something about this product.
