The Chinese manufacturer, OnePlus, has established itself as a leading smartphone brand. However, this strategy does not seem to be enough for the company and now it is changing ground. This year, the OnePlus 8 series has already been released, which is a top series. However, last month, the company also introduced the OnePlus Nord, which is the first mid-range smartphone. Recent GeekBench list Now he suggests that OnePlus is not done. The company probably has another mid-range smartphone for us.
Following the release of the OnePlus Nord, a OnePlus smartphone with the model name “CLOVER” is now available on GeekBench. This smartphone also features a mid-range Qualcomm chip, Snapdragon 660 SoC and 4 GB of RAM. While the OnePlus Nord supports 5G, this smartphone will not support 5G. Therefore, it should be cheaper than the OnePlus Nord. On the GeekBench, this OnePlus phone has a single core test score of 336. In the multi-core test, this device has a score of 1495.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC is a three-year processor (May 2017 version) that uses the 14nm process. Obviously, OnePlus is preparing a budget device that it will use to conquer the market once again.
Within a month, the first mid-range model, the OnePlus Nord, was launched in the Indian and European markets. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei confirmed this week that OnePlus will bring more mid-range models to the North American market. Well-known leakster @Max J. stated that OnePlus is internally developing two mid-range models, called “Billie 1” and “Billie 2”. Previously, a developer found a new machine codenamed “Billie” codenamed OxygenOS 10.5. Its chipset is SM6350 and SM6350 which is the code of the Snapdragon 690 chipset.
OnePlus phones now have Facebook bloatware
However, recent reports indicate that the latest OnePlus smartphones come with Facebook bloatware. From the OnePlus 8 series that arrived in April, all OnePlus phones are pre-installed with the Facebook app. Even the latest OnePlus Nord has it too. The problem with this is that users now have to deal with some Facebook-owned apps and some background services. Annoyingly, there is no simple way to uninstall some of these applications.
OnePlus has officially confirmed that Facebook App Installer, Facebook App Manager and Facebook Services are on its latest phones as system apps. Not only that, it also includes Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and Netflix.
The problem with pre-installing Facebook apps is that some of them run automatically in the background. For starters this is a great way to get word out that users’ data is sometimes small but sometimes very small. They also enable updates that do not come from the Play Store. In addition, since they use data, we can not say what kind of information Facebook receives. This is not something that every user will love to face.
