OnePlus is one of few smartphone brands that has been able to achieve the amount of hype and publicity that it did for the launch of one of its devices. And why not? Offering smartphones with flagship features at the price range of low and medium range phones is still comparatively new for the market. As they initially said, the OnePlus Nord indicates the true North for the smartphone company. It is about going back to their roots and making devices that offer top quality features at a fraction of the cost.
The OnePlus Nord was surely a disruptive introduction for the current market, although just being limited to India and Europe. It has not even been two whole weeks since the much awaited device was launched and now it has been tipped and leaked that more smartphones of the Nord series are in the works.
As per a recent tip tweeted by long time trusted tipster, Max J, we could see not one but two brand new OnePlus devices. The tipster had shared through his Twitter handle in his post, an image of the two new upcoming OnePlus devices. It is even speculated that they could be launched as a part and extension of OnePlus’ mid range Nord series of smartphones.
The tweet leak confirms that the devices are codenamed as Billie 1 and Billie 2 internally, also commonly known as Aurora, rather nicknamed by tipster Max J. The leak shows that the two smartphones will sport a glass back. Max J teamed up with Concept Creator to give us an idea of what the upcoming smartphone handsets could look like. One of the devices are shown to feature a dual rear camera set up while the other features a triple rear camera set up. However, take this with a pinch of salt. The tipster clarified that the images are based on imagination but also very close to reality. So, these could be prototypes in the works while the final device’s design may look somewhat different.
Coincidentally, this tweet comes just days after OnePlus CEO, Carl Pei, stated that a new OnePlus handset could be launched for the United States soon. This phone, however, is expected to be a tweaked version of the existing Nord smartphone and may possibly launched only for the United States. While not much has been reported about the same, it is believed to run on Qualcomm’s new 690 Snapdragon chipset.
It has also been reported that the two devices Billie 1 and Billie 2 could possibly be cheaper than the current OnePlus Nord as well. They may even be powered by the Snapdragon 690 SoC. While OnePlus Nord’s current phone works on Snapdragon 765G that supports 5G capabilities, the same can’t be said for the two new models in question though, which may also be comparatively slower in terms of processing power.
While the recent Nord’s launch took the smartphone market by storm, can the same be expected from OnePlus’ future launches in the Nord series. We will only learn once we get closer to the launch dates. So, are you excited for what they have in store for us?
