OnePlus has announced the name of its new product line. Not OnePlus Z or Lite, but OnePlus Nord will be the company's first smartphone product line to make the premium experience of OnePlus accessible to other users. In a multi-part documentation series (Instagram) you will introduce the smartphone.
There are no concrete details about the technical data, price and release date yet. According to rumors, the smartphone will be equipped with a 6.55 inch - 90 Hz AMOLED display, a 5G Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, at least 6+128GB of memory and 30 watt warp charge.

The last OnePlus mid-range smartphone was a few years old. The most recently released models were mainly in the high-end segment. Now the company has announced a new, affordable range of smartphones. The new series will initially be available in Europe and India. Peter Lau, co-founder and CEO of OnePlus:
“For over six years, we have been working to provide flagship smartphone users with the best possible experience. Because we are closely connected to our community, we know that many want a solid smartphone for everyday use - and at a more affordable price.”
The head of the new product range is Paul Yu, who is also responsible for previous OnePlus flagship smartphones. It is not yet known what exactly will be offered to us with the new smartphone series. The hashtag “#NewBeginnings” and the Instagram channel “OnePlusLiteZThing” provide at least the first indications of the new name.
Are we expecting a OnePlus Lite, OnePlus Z, or is it a OnePlus Lite Z? We'll surely find out more in the coming weeks!
