OnePlus is ready to 'rock the boat again': OnePlus Z incoming? (Update)

Update: OnePlus has confirmed plans for a new, affordable smartphone line.

We're expecting the OnePlus Z or OnePlus Nord to launch soon.

Update, June 23 2020 (8:59AM ET): OnePlus has now confirmed that it’s working on a “new, more affordable smartphone product line.” We’ve got all the details at the link over here.

Original article, June 22 2020 (8:40AM ET): OnePlus has already launched the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro earlier this year, but it looks like the firm isn’t stopping there though.

Now, OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau has teased an announcement on Twitter, suggesting that “something new” is coming. Check out the tweet below.

It’s also interesting to note the use of a blue OnePlus logo rather than the traditional white branding. We’re not quite sure what this means though. Is it hinting at the oft-rumored OnePlus Z/OnePlus Nord, another OnePlus 8 series colorway, or the blue OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z?

For what it’s worth, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has also been tweeting with the hashtag “#NewBeginnings,” claiming that the firm will “rock the boat again.” This indeed suggests that we could see a new product line rather than a take on an existing product.

It’s time to rock the boat again… #NewBeginnings @oneplus

We’ve seen loads of OnePlus Z/Nord rumors in recent months, and it’s widely expected to launch in July. The phone is tipped to offer a 90Hz OLED screen, a Snapdragon 765 series chipset, 30W charging, and a quad-camera setup. So hopefully OnePlus peels the curtain back very soon.
