OnePlus recently launched its much-awaited affordable smartphone, OnePlus Nord. The new OnePlus smartphone has gained praise for offering features that are usually found in flagship-tier smartphones at a lower cost. Unfortunately, though, the smartphone is limited to India and Europe.
It’s not all bad news as the OnePlus Co-founder Carl Pei confirmed that the company will bring a different Nord smartphone for customers in North America. And now, famous tipster Max J. has given more details on OnePlus’ upcoming budget phones apparently designed for users in North America. According to the tipster, the Shenzhen-based tech giant is currently working on not one but two budget smartphones — these are known as ‘Billie 1’ and ‘Billie 2’ internally.
The tipster has partnered with Concept Creator to provide us a glimpse of what these upcoming affordable smartphones could look like. The tipster, however, clarified that the first look is also based on “imagination,” but it’s very close to what the device will look like. These upcoming new smartphones are nicknamed “Aurora” by tipster Max J.
Both Billie 1 and Billie 2 will reportedly be cheaper than the Nord. The smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 690, a successor to Snapdragon 675. The processor is slower than the SD 765G that was used in the Nord, but SD 690 does offer 5G. These new affordable smartphones will come with a few other compromises and that’s exactly why these smartphones are expected to be cheaper than the Nord.
We currently don’t have any information on the price of these upcoming OnePlus smartphones, but based on speculations, Billie 1 and Billie 2 may cost €199 and €299 in Europe respectively.
