While OPPO is expected to launch a phone with Snapdragon 662 chipset early September under Rs 20,000, OnePlus will follow suit at the end of September with its own phone in similar range and specifications, reports GizmoChina.
The Snapdragon 662 is an octa-core chipset that sits barely below the Snapdragon 665 processor.
OnePlus has also received certification for an 18W charger. The upcoming phone may come bundled with the new charger.
The OnePlus Nord starts at Rs 24,999 for 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage.
It is priced at Rs 27,999 for 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and goes up till Rs 29,999 for the high-end 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage variant.
Meanwhile, the company is planning to launch OnePlus 8T and 8T Pro with a 64MP camera at the rear.
Since the OnePlus 8 series and OnePlus Nord support a 48MP main camera, it is likely that the upcoming OnePlus 8T series is the one that will get upgraded to 64MP.
The OnePlus 8T could be expected to get an enhanced 65W Super Warp charge, along with a 1002W fast charging tech.
