- An alleged survey might have leaked the OnePlus Z specs.
- The phone could feature a 90Hz display, a Snapdragon 765 SoC, and a low price point.
- However, these specs have been called into question by other leakers.
An alleged survey might have just outed all the major OnePlus Z specs. First spotted by folks over at XDA Developers (via DesiDime.com), the survey was apparently distributed on the Payback platform â€” a multi-brand loyalty program in India. It asks users if they would be interested in buying a 5G-enabled Snapdragon 765 OnePlus phone priced at Rs 24,990 (~$330).
The OnePlus Z is rumored to feature the Snapdragon 765 chipset, making it the second OnePlus phone after the OnePlus X to hit the mid-range mark. This alone strongly suggests that the aforementioned survey is talking about OnePlus Z. Other specs mentioned in the survey also line up with previous OnePlus Z leaks.
The survey claims this unnamed OnePlus phone will get a 6.55-inch 90Hz Super AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The 90Hz screen is something thatâ€™s obvious because OnePlus confirmed long back itâ€™ll use high refresh rate displays for all its phones. The display size and the inclusion of the under-screen fingerprint sensor also match what weâ€™ve seen on the OnePlus 8, although I was personally rooting for a more compact form factor.
Elsewhere, the survey mentions a 64MP + 16MP + 2MP triple rear camera setup in contrast to the previously rumored 48MP + 16MP + 12MP rear camera trio. Weâ€™re guessing the 16MP and 2MP sensors are the same ultra-wide and macro sensors found on the OnePlus 8. The latter could also be a depth sensor.
Other supposed specs include a 4,300mAh battery with 30W fast charging. Once again, this could be the same 30W Warp Charge tech found on the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, though previously leaked information suggested a 4,000mAh battery.
Lastly, the survey points to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage as opposed to 8GB RAM and 28GB/256GB storage rumored earlier.
Weâ€™re not certain if the specs mentioned in the survey are accurate. But if they are, the OnePlus Z could give the likes of Xiaomi and Realme a run for their money. It could even eat up some of the market share acquired by Samsungâ€™s more affordable A series phones. Moreover, if the OnePlus Z comes in at that alleged $330 price, it could also get the jump on Googleâ€™s Pixel 4a, or even the rumored Pixel 5. Though itâ€™s also possible the OnePlus Z could launch for closer to $400 in the US.
According to tipster Maz J, these OnePlus Z specs are not correct. He doesnâ€™t say how exactly they differ from the actual specs of the phone, but since heâ€™s a well-known voice, we might as well take the specs mentioned in the survey with a pinch of salt.
Iâ€™m sorry to say that butâ€¦ the specs are not correct. https://t.co/W75ZysQFPj
