While the OnePlus 8 series is likely to debut next month, the company is expected to release a lighter variant of the devices soon after. It was tipped to be named OnePlus 8 Lite. However, the latest development claims that the OnePlus X is all set to be succeeded by the OnePlus Z. The information comes from tipster Max Weinbach who leaked plenty of information about the Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy Z Flip before their official announcement.

As per the tipster, OnePlus is soon going to revamp the older OnePlus X under a new series. Further, he revealed that the phone could arrive with the name “OnePlus Z”, and not as OnePlus 8 Lite.

The OnePlus Z is tipped to sport a 90Hz refresh rate 6.4-inch AMOLED display. OnePlus is said to use a MediaTek chipset for the first time. It may be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 SoC. The device is said to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

As for the optics, the leaked renders have shown a triple rear camera setup. It may sport a 48MP primary camera alongside a 16MP and 12MP sensors for ultra-wide-angle and telephoto lens respectively. The OnePlus Z could pack a 4000mAh battery with support for 30W fast charging. Further, it is rumored to be made available in two variants: 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB. 

It may be priced at 400 GBP, which is around 511 USD and approximately Rs 37,500. That is actually a high asking price for a Lite model especially when the OnePlus 7T is now selling for Rs 34,999 in India. However, it is highly likely for OnePlus to price it lower in India than the international markets. 

According to previous rumours, OnePlus Z will be made available in India and other markets by July 2020. Hence, it may launch after the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, which are rumored to be launched in mid-April.
