The OnePlus Z – the expected “lite” version of the 8-series – did not join its siblings during the April 14 event. Now leakster Max J is hinting that the phone will be revealed in July instead.

As with many things these days, the delay of the Z was blamed on the COVID-19 outbreak. Unofficially anyway, OnePlus never confirmed that it is working on a “lite” model. This was set to be the first OnePlus phone not to use a Snapdragon chipset, allegedly opting for a MediaTek Dimensity 1000L instead. That would still enable 5G connectivity, of course.

The OnePlus Z may be coming in July

Interestingly, the outline of the device (shared by Max) shows the selfie camera in the center instead of top left like on the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. And this appears to be a punch hole rather than a notch like previous generations.

This lines up with renders we saw of the OnePlus Z way back in December last year. They also show that the back will differ from the OnePlus 8 by moving the triple camera to the corner. An AMOLED display is likely, but the refresh rate is up in the air.

The OnePlus Z will be the company’s first attempt at a mid-ranger since the – dare we speak its name? – the OnePlus X. And given the increased prices of the 8-series, now seems like a great time to take another swing at an affordable phone.
