According to recent reports, OnePlus is planning to launch a more affordable version of OnePlus 8. The smartphone, OnePlus Z is actually more of One Plus 8 lite version. But we don’t need to wait for a long time to get this new smartphone. According to a few sources, the company will be launching this flagship by the end of July 2020.
The only big difference between the 2 models is on the display. While One Plus 8 comes with a curved screen display its counterpart will be available with a flat-screen. Some reports say that the upcoming model will be named One Plus 8 Lite, while others suggest that it will be One Plus Z. TrueTech has shared the first leaked image of the phone’s front panel.
OnePlus Z specifications
The new offering from One Plus will not be focussing on the curved screen anymore. One Plus Z is sporting a flat-display as is visible in the picture above. The new flagship will be sporting an in-display fingerprint scanner for security purposes. This also leaves a clue for an Optic AMOLED display on the flat screen.

The One Plus 8 series saw the selfie shifted towards the left side of the phone. According to the leaked images, the selfie cameras are present at the center in the new One Plus Z. The phone will also come with a punch-hole camera cutout for its front-cam. The only downgrade here is in terms of processing power. The phone has the new MediaTek processor instead of the usual Snapdragon chipsets. But One Plus Z comes with 5G connectivity.
The smartphone offers 8GB of RAM along with a 128GB and 256GB internal memory option. The smartphone will showcase a price of around Rs. 30,000 which is very cheap as compared to the OnePlus 8 series. The new affordable phone comes with a battery backup of 4,000 mah.
