OnePlus is planning to launch more new smartphones in 2020, that’s not exactly a secret. Well, a tipster just shared some additional information, claiming that OnePlus is currently working on four new smartphones.
This information comes from Mukul Sharma, as he released the info via Twitter. He managed to dig up some code mentioning all four smartphones, that image is attached below.
Codenames of these four OnePlus smartphones just surfaced
Those four devices are codenamed OnePlus ‘billie2’, ‘billie2t’, ‘billie8’, and ‘billie8t’.The latter two devices may seem to be the OnePlus 8 and 8T, which will become the company’s new flagships later this year, but they probably are not. ‘Kebab’ is the codename for those two phones, ‘billie’ phones are mid-ranger.
The other two codenames (billie2 & 2t) are reserved for the company’s budget smartphones. Those two devices could be the budget phones that were rumored, phones equipped with the Snapdragon 662 / 665, and Snapdragon 690, respectively.
On the flip side, OnePlus is also planning to launch a Snapdragon 460-powered device. That ultimate budget smartphone did surface recently, from a reliable source, and it comes with the ‘kebab’ codename.
We’re not really sure how many additional budget phones will OnePlus release this year, but at least two are expected to arrive. At least one will be fueled by the Snapdragon 600 series SoC (though we’ll probably see two, as this leak suggests), and at least one will ship with the Snapdragon 400 series chip.
OnePlus obviously wants to cover all its bases, including low-end, mid-range, upper mid-range, and flagship segments. One thing is for sure, this will be the year OnePlus releases most smartphones, and most products in general.
The OnePlus Nord may receive a price cut soon
Now, the source also mentioned that the OnePlus Nord may receive a price cut soon. That price cut will be put into place in order to welcome new budget smartphones, it seems.
We’re not really sure when will all of these phones arrive, but they will launch before the end of the year. OnePlus will probably host at least two separate events.
One of those events will be for the OnePlus 8T series. Those will be the company’s flagship phones, and OnePlus probably doesn’t want to mix them with its budget offerings.
The other event will introduce these budget phones. There is always a possibility we’ll see more than two separate events, of course. We’re only guessing what will happen at this point.
There you have it. Plenty of OnePlus devices are expected to arrive in the near future. You can expect to see more information in the coming weeks.
