OnePlus is preparing for another smartphone launch if an FCC listing is to be believed. OnePlus has launched a bunch of new phones this year already and we’re still in the month of June. The company has launched a few Nord series devices including the Nord CE 2, Nord CE 2 Lite, and Nord 2T. On the other hand, the company has also launched a Nord N series smartphone dubbed Nord N20 5G.
On top of this, the company has already launched the OnePlus 10 Pro flagship and OnePlus 10R (OnePlus Ace in China) affordable flagship smartphones. Now, it looks like the company is looking to launch an ultra-affordable smartphone, which could be a rebranded Oppo A series device. The upcoming OnePlus 4G smartphone has been spotted on FCC revealing some details of the device as well as the rebranding.
The Upcoming OnePlus Phone Could be a Rebranded Oppo A57 4G
The upcoming OnePlus phone has been spotted on the FCC database with the CPH2469 model number. Based on the information filed, the device will measure 163.74 x 75.03 x 7.99 mm and will come with support for Bluetooth, dual-band Wi-Fi, and support dual SIM. Further, the listing also suggests the phone will feature a 5,000mAh battery with BLP923 model number.
Going through the FCC listing further ahead, we could also find a few documents submitted by Oppo requesting the OnePlus rebrand. Firstly, the letter from Oppo is requesting to change the company name to “OnePlus Technology”. Further, the document also reveals that the upcoming OnePlus phone will come with the OnePlus logo on the battery cover, red colour USB cable, OxygenOS 12.1, and in terms of cameras, the device is likely to come with a 50MP main shooter and a 2MP secondary camera on the back 一 all these are changes on the upcoming phone compared to the already launched OPPO A57 4G. The document also states “Delete the headset”, this could mean they’re requesting to remove the headphones present in the box.
Based on these specifications obtained from FCC, it looks like this forthcoming OnePlus 4G phone could be a rebranded Oppo A57 4G, which was launched a few days back in Thailand. The Oppo A57 4G comes with a 6.56-inch HD+ LCD screen and it is powered by MediaTek Helio G35 chipset. The device is backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging. In the camera department, the device sports a 13MP primary camera, 2MP depth sensor, and an 8MP selfie snapper. The phone comes with 3GB RAM and 64GB of storage onboard.
