OnePlus Announces a New Affordable Smartphone Series
A new, more affordable smartphone product line
We’ve already seen and heard the rumors surrounding OnePlus releasing a new smartphone which apparently will be called the OnePlus Z. And for the past couple of days, OnePlus has been teasing us with the hashtag #NewBeginnings. Today, the company is officially confirmed that a new affordable OnePlus smartphone series will be coming soon.
The company’s CEO — Pete Lau made the official announcement for the new smartphone series on OnePlus’ forums. In the announcement, he states:
Today, I’m very excited to announce that we are bringing the premium, flagship experience that you’ve come to expect from OnePlus to a new, more affordable smartphone product linePete lau, CeO OnePlus
This new affordable series from OnePlus will first be available in Europe and India. However, the company will also be bringing its affordable smartphones to North America in the near future. In the announcement, Pete also mentions that the new product team for the affordable OnePlus series will be lead by Paul Yu.
Within the announcement, we also get a link to a new Instagram page for what appears to be the new affordable series lineup name — OnePlusLiteZThing. Moreover, the first 100 followers on the new Instagram account will be receiving some special items from OnePlus.
Nonetheless, we’re excited to see what OnePlus has to offer in the affordable segment of the market. At present, the OnePlus 8 Pro is easily one of the best Android smartphones. Hence, we do expect the company to bring some serious competition with the introduction of the OnePlus ‘Z’ lineup.
