This year, OnePlus has largely evolved from a company that makes only premium devices to a major smartphone maker. While we only have two flagships and a mid-range phone, reports indicate that the company will introduce another mid-range phone with Snapdragon 690 and 5G connectivity and two budget devices. The first appeared a few hours ago through a report leak from Chun. According to this report, OnePlus will present a new smartphone by the end of September with a Snapdragon 460 SoC. Now, a new report states that there is an even cheaper smartphone called the Snapdragon 460 and OnePlus Nord.

The SoC is referred to by the model number SM450. The source code also mentions other processors such as the Snapdragon 865, Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon 765G. The phones that have these chipsets have already been revealed, however, the phone with SD460 power supply has not yet appeared as a budget OnePlus Nord phone.
If we count all the rumors, we now have at least three OnePlus Nord phones scheduled for the end of 2020. These phones are likely to come with triple and dual rear cameras. The cheaper 5G OnePlus Nord with the Snapdragon 690 SoC may be codenamed Billie and will be one of the first smartphones to adopt the first 5G chipset in the SD6xx family.
Although we do not know when the OnePlus phone with Snapdragon 460 will appear, the Snapdragon 662 / SD655 phone is expected for the end of September. Its price will be between $ 213 and $ 240 in the competitive bastion of India. It is worth noting that a mysterious phone named Clover visited GeekBench with 4 GB of RAM. It could be either the SD662 or the SD460 phone. Another interesting fact is that the company recently certified an 18W charger at TUV Rheinland. This charging capability fits perfectly with either of these two upcoming budget smartphones
