The company's latest OnePlus 8 series offers high-end specs, but to keep up with their initial mission of providing affordable smartphones out compromises, first time ever, they had to announce a cheaper model alongside the flagship series.
However, the 399€ (there's no US release as of now) OnePlus Nord won't be the cheapest OnePlus for long. A new leak has detailed an upcoming OnePlus device that could retail for around $200.
Android Central has managed to get their hands on the specs sheet of what is called OnePlus Clover. There's nothing tremendously impressive about the specs of this cheap phone, except for one thing: the battery.
The battery inside the phone is massive. A 6000 milliamp hour battery is something you don't see often in smartphones. Pair this up with a 6.52 inch 720p screen and you've got a indisputable battery champ in the making.
Considering that it is nearly 50% bigger than in OnePlus 8 while having to power much less intensive hardware, this should provide at least a two-day battery life without breaking a sweat. It's, however, not going to feature OnePlus 8's market-leading fast charging tech but does offer 18 watt fast charging.
Other specs include 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB storage, Snapdragon 460 chipset, and three cameras in the back (13+2+2MP).
Here are some of the leaked specs:
- Snapdragon 460
- 4 GB RAM
- 64GB storage
- 6.52" 720p IPS LCD
- microSD slot
- 3.5mm headphone jack
- Back cameras: 13MP f/2.2 | 2MP f/2.4 | 2MP f/2.4
- 6000 mAh battery
- 18 W fast charging
- Estimated price: around $200
Somewhat surprisingly OnePlus Clover is said to come to US unlike Nord.
As with all the rumors and leaks, one should take them with a grain of salt. However, Android Central is fairly certain about this, and we have a high confidence in leaks from them.
