After launching the OnePlus 8 and the 8 Pro in India and other international markets, OnePlus is reportedly gearing up for introducing a new smartphone in July this year. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer is tipped to launch a budget OnePlus smartphone called OnePlus Z in the next couple of months.
OnePlus was previously rumoured to launch a ‘Lite’ OnePlus 8 smartphone alongside the two premium handsets. While that did not happen in March, tipster Max J claims that the company will debut the OnePlus Z in July 2020.The tipster has uploaded a sketch of the OnePlus Z, which will sport a centre-positioned punch-hole cutout.

Previously, another tipster had uploaded render images of the OnePlus Z, aka OnePlus 8 Lite, with a similar punch-hole cutout.
Past rumours suggest that OnePlus Z will have a 6.4-6.5-inch flat display. It would be interesting to see if the OnePlus Z would feature the 90Hz refresh rate screen, especially when the company had previously confirmed that future OnePlus devices will feature 90Hz refresh rate displays at least.
An alleged OnePlus Z was spotted in a video featuring CEO Pete Lau. Leaked screenshots suggest that OnePlus Z will have a triple-camera setup on the back.
Lastly, it is rumoured that the company would opt for a MediaTek Dimensity 1000L 5G processor for the OnePlus Z.
