Not that long ago, OnePlus released the OnePlus 9R smartphone. It went on sale in selected markets only and there was no information whether the company is going to bring it to other markets. This is also the first time that OnePlus has launched a new series of models
in China after many years. Anyway, if believing in current consumer feedback, this handset is favored by consumers for its quality, flagship-level performance, and relatively high price-performance ratio.
Today, a well-known Weibo tipster reported that OnePlus is still developing a new phone based on the Dimensity 1200 platform. It will adopt a single-hole straight screen design and have an excellent screen-to-body ratio.
Dimensity 1200 Is The Core
This is not a new chip. Earlier, a number of Dimensity 1200 models have been launched in China. From market feedback, this chip can handle many tasks and users have almost no complaints of it. It performs well in all aspects such as performance and battery life. But this is not accidental because we are talking about the strongest chip in the MediaTek camp.
The Dimensity 1200 uses a 6nm process technology and a 1+3+4 flagship three-cluster architecture design. Compared with the previous generation CPU performance, energy efficiency is improved by 25%, GPU performance is improved by 13%, and AI performance is improved by 12.5%.
OnePlus Smartphone Camera
Well, that’s quite interesting to see a new OnePlus smartphone coming with a non-Qualcomm chip. And we already understood that it performs quite well in many use scenarios. But what about imaging? You know that OnePlus handsets have been always popular for their good photography capabilities. So the upcoming OnePlus smartphone should also come with a good camera.
It turns out the main camera of this mysterious new OnePlus phone will be consistent with the previous flagship OnePlus 9 series. Thus, it will be using an IMX766 sensor with a 50MP resolution and a 1/1.56-inch outsole. Compared with the OnePlus 9 Pro, the lower right lens is replaced with a flash. But the camera module has not changed much.
However, this machine still runs on the Oxygen OS system.
The price of this new OnePlus smartphone will be in the 2000 yuan range ($313), which is basically at the same level as the previously listed Dimensity 1200 models. But there is no guarantee that the forthcoming OnePlus smartphone will be listed in China. We mean most likely we are dealing with a handset that is going to hit the European market or India.
