This year, rumors were indicating to the arrival of three OnePlus smartphones. However, just two of them were launched in the previous week – OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. Apparently, the constant problems raised by the COVID-19 pandemic had delayed the production of the third device – a mid-range smartphone called OnePlus Z. This particular handset will be announced eventually, and that will be sooner than we expect since live shots emerged with the alleged smartphone.The images have been revealed by the folks at SlashLeaks. They show the highly-anticipated smartphone’s display in all its glory. We can say that this variant does not have rounded corners unlike other devices on the OnePlus 8 series. It’s a rectangular smartphone with a flat display and moderate bezels.
Moreover, it counts with a center-aligned punch-hole for the selfie camera.Unfortunately, there are no real images revealing the OnePlus Z back. However, some leaked renders in the past revealed a triple camera setup. These cameras are placed inside a rectangular shape. According to rumors, there will be a 48MP main sensor and a glass finish. Rumors also point a MediaTek Dimensity 1000 SoC with 5G connectivity is powering this device. This is the point where OnePlus fans are split. Although the latest MediaTek chips are more than capable, the company’s bad reputation regarding software puts in doubt the software support of this handset.Last but not least, we recommend you to take these images with a pinch or two of salt. Neither the original source or SlashLeaks could confirm if this is, in fact, the OnePlus Z. Although it fits perfectly with previous rumors.
