OnePlus made a comeback into the Mid-range segment with the OnePlus Nord after the OnePlus X which was launched back in 2015. The arrival of OnePlus surprised many as the brand was positioning itself into the premium segment with the OnePlus 8 Pro.
With that being said it seems like OnePlus is up for another surprise. Well, as per a report by Android Central, the company will mark its entry into the budget segment with a smartphone codenamed “OnePlus Clover”. The website has also shared the specifications of the same.
So there’s a 6.52 inch IPS LCD panel with HD+ resolution ( that’s 720p) & to power the device it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor, which is a huge improvement over the infamous SD 450. The New SD 460 is almost 70% better in CPU performance & 60% better in GPU performance.
As for the RAM & Storage, there’s a 4GB RAM & 64GB internal storage with MicroSD Card expansion which we don’t see from OnePlus nowadays, the last we saw was in OnePlus X, so a welcome change. Runs on Oxygen OS 10 on top of Android 10 & there’s a rear fingerprint sensor.
For the optics, The OnePlus Clover has a triple rear camera setup which includes a 13MP primary lens with 2MP lenses. Also, there’s a huge 6000mAh battery with 18W fast charging
