OnePlus is reportedly looking to introduce new phones in the sub-Rs range. 20,000 segment. These phones are likely to be launched in the Indian market in the future. A tentative release schedule for the next quarter to sometime in the second quarter of 2022 has been suggested. Oppo is said to be ‘dictating the terms’ to OnePlus after its merger. OnePlus also recently announced that it is merging its OxygenOS with Oppo’s ColorOS “to improve efficiency and standardize the software experience” across devices.
Data engineer and freelance journalist Yogesh Brar has tweeted that OnePlus is looking to introduce smartphones into the sub-Rs range. 20K segment. Currently, all affordable Nord range phones in the Indian market are priced above Rs. 20,000, but more aggressively priced phones are in the future. Brar says: “Oppo has always been linked to OnePlus in one way or another. But now they are dictating the terms. OnePlus is undergoing a change, and phones under 20,000 for India are on the charts. ” He claims that these phones could be released as early as the next quarter or even be pushed back to the second quarter of 2022. A definite timetable is not known for the time being.
OnePlus entered the smartphone segment with flagship phones and gained immense goodwill in the premium range. Last year, OnePlus branched out with its Nord line, introducing budget phones – a strategy it hadn’t adopted in years. Brar says even the new sub-Rs. 20,000 phones will be introduced under the Nord brand. The company has launched ultra-affordable phones like the recent OnePlus Nord N200 5G in markets like the US and Canada, but those models haven’t been brought to India yet.
If Brar’s intelligence has any legitimacy, similar phones could also be launched in the Indian market as well as other global markets. The Indian smartphone segment is full of budget phones from Samsung, Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi and other Indian brands. It remains to be seen whether the addition of OnePlus in this congested segment has shaken things up or not.
