We already know that OnePlus Z is all set to launch worldwide in July 2020, thanks to various reports. Earlier, the same handset was rumoured to be called the OnePlus 8 Lite and launched alongside OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. But now speculations suggest that the new device might come as a successor to 2015’s OnePlus X and mark an all-new series for the brand.
Thanks to several leaks, we know all major specifications of the device. One of these rumours stated that the OnePlus Z will be the first OnePlus offering to come with a MediaTek processor, specifically the Dimensity 1000. However, if the latest tip is to be believed, OnePlus is not ditching Qualcomm for its mid-range offering after all.

The latest leak comes from Max J., the editor of All About Samsung, whoalso revealed the alleged launch date of the phone. In a similar tweet as the last one, Max has shared a sketch of the upcoming OnePlus Z, accompanied by the text ‘765’ and ‘5G’. We can safely assume that the OnePlus Z will flaunt the Snapdragon 765G SoC with an integrated Snapdragon X52 5G Modem-RF. The tweet revealed nothing else about the upcoming mid-ranger.

A recent leak claimed that the OnePlus Z will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner and an AMOLED display. The handset is expected to feature up to 8GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage.
