OnePlus recently unveiled the OnePlus 8 series globally. The smartphones under the series are yet to be available in India due to the country-wide lockdown imposed to prevent the spread of coronavirus pandemic. However, the OnePlus 8 series is already up for pre-orders in the country and will be available for purchase very soon. After the OnePlus 8 series the company is reportedly prepping to launch another device called OnePlus Z. This one will be special because of its pricing.
According to the rumours flooding the internet, OnePlus Z is the company’s long talked about “affordable” smartphone. Reports suggest that the smartphone manufacturer initially planned to launch the OnePlus Z alongside the OnePlus 8 series but didn’t due to the COVID-19 pandemic. New reports now suggest that OnePlus Z is nearing the launch. Last week, Tipster Max J suggested that the phone will go official in July. No launch date has been revealed as yet.
