Forget about the OnePlus Nord which was launched in India alongside European countries. That was one of the most affordable 5G phone available in the industry outside China at the time of launch. The same company OnePlus is known for the flagship killer, that already puts big player like Samsung to shame. Now the phone is reportedly working on a budget phone code-named under the OnePlus ‘Clover’.
Earlier the “Clover” was spotted on a benchmarking platform with different SoC at the helm. It was Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, the new development slew to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 and HD+ display. Not that really disappointing with $200 price point alongside the 6000mAh battery and OnePlus brand. The launch of the phone in the US is sooner then we are expecting it is around the near corner.
It had better arrive with Snapdragon 660 or 665 so that it can stand out beside the existing competitors. The development of the phone is towards the US where the quality matters for $200 for Snapdragon 460 does not matter at all when the phone backed by the company like OnePlus. However, the reportedly debut to the global market shortly after its launch in the US. Outside the US, India could be a big market since the company already doing well with the OnePlus Nord.
