OnePlus Nord (OnePlus Z) Could Launch with More Cameras than the OnePlus 8

The recent development surrounding OnePlus' next budget-friendly premium smartphone suggests that it could arrive with a quad-camera setup on its rear.

The OnePlus Z is now tipped to debut with four cameras on its rear. That is one more than the previously-rumored rear triple-camera setup.

Notable tipster Max J. on Twitter has revealed that the upcoming OnePlus smartphone is likely to carry a rear system comprising four cameras. This is more than the vanilla OnePlus 8's rear camera offerings and the same with that of the Pro variant.

Meanwhile, the same tipster shared that the phone might launch with a different name at the time of its launch. As opposed to being called the OnePlus Z or OnePlus 8 Lite, the company could be mulling over on announcing it as the OnePlus Nord.

OnePlus Z/OnePlus Nord Rumored Specifications

The OnePlus Z/OnePlus Nord has been one of the most anticipated phones as of late. And as evidenced by its recent speculation, OnePlus fans have something to celebrate when it finally launches.

Accordingly, the phone will come with a 6.5-inch AMOLED screen with an HD+ resolution. Its display is also tipped to support a 90Hz refresh rate, and a cutout at the top left section, housing its front-facing camera.

The OnePlus Z/OnePlus Nord is also set to be retailed as a premium mid-range smartphone. The phone could launch with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G chipset at the helm, which places it in the mid-range class, alongside one of the more affordable 5G-enabled phones in the market.

Meanwhile, the phone's chipset will be coupled with Adreno 620 GPU, with up to 12GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The device is also likely to ship with OxygenOS 10 based on the current Android 10.

The phone's rear quadruple-camera setup is also rumored to include a 64MP camera as its primary sensor, with additional 16MP and 2MP lenses. The fourth one is still unknown at the moment, along with their respective features and configurations. In the selfie department, the phone is pegged to feature a 16MP front-facing snapper.

The OnePlus Z/OnePlus Nord could also be listed with a 4,300mAh battery, with support for 30W fast wired charging. The handset could also tote around a fingerprint reader underneath its display. The phone, however, might not have an IP rating for water and dust resistance.

The OnePlus Z/OnePlus Nord could carry a price tag of RS 34,990 (around PHP 23,000). Its launch date is rumored to be on July 2.
