Leaked in all its factory CAD-based glory
months before the 5G-enabled OnePlus 8
and 8 Pro
were unveiled, the company's first mid-range handset in almost five years
was essentially confirmed a couple of weeks ago
Clearly, the coronavirus pandemic has badly impacted OnePlus 8 Pro production
, so the company could be forced to push back the OnePlus Z 5G announcement... again until supply shortages are resolved.
It's also worth pointing out that today's report mentions nothing about a prospective global launch date, which means OnePlus
could limit the initial availability of its long overdue sophomore mid-range smartphone effort to one of its best markets in the world
That's little more than a guess, mind you, so you probably shouldn't panic just yet if you live on the Western Hemisphere and you're interested in purchasing an affordable 5G handset with a flat 6.4-inch or so display supporting 90Hz refresh rate technology, as well as a triple rear-facing camera system possibly consisting of a 48MP primary shooter, 16MP ultra-wide-angle sensor, and 2MP macro lens, a 4,000mAh battery with blazing fast charging technology, and at least 8 gigs of memory paired with 128 gigs of internal storage space.
