With the launch of the OnePlus 8 series, OnePlus basically moved itself to a completely different league competing with the big dogs – Apple & Samsung.
And their transition from a flagship killer to a flagship brand made a lot of people happy, but with flagship phones comes flagship pricing, which left a lot of fans completely in the dark as the new phones were out of their reach, because go flagships!
But hey!, don’t feel left out because the OnePlus Z, their highly rumored mid-range phone may launch in July 2020. The device will be like a throwback to the OnePlus X – Their first mid-range device launched way back in 2015.
The OnePlus Z may host a centered punch-hole camera upfront unlike the both of which have top-left cutouts for the selfie-camera.
Though the full specs are not fully clear yet if rumors are something to go by then it might come with a Mediatek processor, triple camera setup, and all that other good stuff. So, keep your fingers crossed for now and hope for the best!
New variant by OnePlus called OnePlus Z (OnePlus light) will also be launching today by OnePlus. It will be powered by the Mediatek Dimensity 1000 SOC with 5G support.
My questions how will OnePlus price this light variant model in India. So total 3 phones launching today.

And if they nail that pricing, then I think it would be an outstanding value considering they surprised us all with the India pricing. Also, as they slowly creep up to the flagship territory, this phone could help in preserving their “Flagship-killer” vibe.
[UPDATE: 8th June]: New OnePlus TV (s), OnePlus Z specs & pricing.
Earlier today today Pete Lau, CEO – OnePlus announced on twitter that OnePlus will be releasing new charper TV(s) on July 2nd. Given that the current TV offerings from OnePlus starts from ₹69,900 ($926), a cheaper option will definitely be very exciting.

Here’s the screen grab:
And from the looks of it, it seems like the OnePlus Z because the specs kinda match with what was speculated previously. So, it does seem quite legit, but again as it’s not confirmed so take it with a grain of salt.
And speaking of not confirmed, Max J. the guy who leaked the processor of the OnePlus Z and also released some graphics regarding the OnePlus Buds said that the details spotted by XDA are incorrect. And that he’ll release more details soon!
I’m sorry to say that but… the specs are not correct. https://t.co/W75ZysQFPj

Shortly after the XDA post, AndroidCentral reported that a reliable source within the company confirmed the launch date is July 10 in India.
But with Pete announcing that TV launch on July 2nd, it seems like that’s the time when the OnePlus Z will be eventually be released because why will OnePlus do two events separately for those products.
