A few weeks back, the OnePlus 8 series was made official. Now, the company is soon expected to launch a more affordable version of the OnePlus 8 series. It is said to launch the OnePlus 8 Lite or OnePlus Z in July this year. Ahead of the launch, the alleged hands-on image of the smartphone has surfaced online. The leaked image suggests that the OnePlus Z will have a flat display design.
The handset could offer a punch-hole display and the cut-out will be placed in the center. The image (shared by True-Tech) also suggests that the OnePlus Z will feature an in-display fingerprint reader. This also means the upcoming OnePlus phone will have an OLED panel. It is likely to offer support for a 90Hz refresh rate display.
