[Exclusive] OnePlus Oscar smartphone in the works, launch timeline revealed

OnePlus looks to be readying yet another numbered series flagship phone.

Highlights
  • OnePlus Oscar numbered series phone is said to be in the works.
  • The handset will debut sometime in Q2 2022.
  • We can speculate the handset could be the standard OnePlus 10.

OnePlus is busy prepping for the launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro globally and in India, sometime in the next month. Since the flagship had already debuted in China earlier this year, we already know its complete specifications. Now, amidst this, 91mobiles has exclusively learned from noted leakster Yogesh Brar that the company is working on another phone with the codename Oscar. The handset will be a part of the OnePlus’s numbered series (i.e. it will join the ranks of OnePlus 9, 9 Pro, 10 Pro, etc.). The exact moniker of the phone remains under wraps but Brar tells us it will debut in Q2 2022, so sometime between April and June.

While the exact moniker of the phone remains in the dark, for now, we speculate it could be the standard OnePlus 10 that hasn’t debuted in China to date. We should start hearing more details about the OnePlus Oscar going forward but for now, it’s definite that OnePlus is working on another flagship and it will be launching soon.

Besides the OnePlus Oscar, the company seems to have planned its calendar for the entire year. The brand will be having a busy year as reports suggest it is working on expanding its Nord lineup further, with two new phones, first-ever Nord-branded TWS earbuds (whose renders 91mobiles has exclusive shared), a new fitness band and a smartwatch, and a tablet. There’s also the rumoured OnePlus Nord CE Lite that will be priced under Rs 20,000.

All this indicates that OnePlus doesn’t want to limit itself to a couple of flagship upgrades and a few audio products for the entire year and aims to offer a wider range of phones and accessories. It appears that the Nord lineup will play a significant role. It wouldn’t be a surprise if we were to see budget and mid-range offerings from OnePlus in the near future.
