After releasing the OnePlus Nord a while ago, it appears OnePlus isn't done with catering for the non-flagship segments. New information has now surfaced, strongly indicating that the company could be set to release an entry-level device powered by the Snapdragon 460.

For years, OnePlus dedicated itself to making flagship phones with the newest, most powerful Qualcomm chipsets available. That changed with the release of the OnePlus Nord a while ago, however, with the company finally launching a mid-range phone. Apparently, though, that isn't where it ends.

Information gleaned from what appears to be OnePlus proprietary code shows that the company has another smartphone in the works. The code has references to the Snapdragon 855, Snapdragon 865, and the Snapdragon 765G. OnePlus is currently supporting phones with those chipsets. There's an entirely new SoC listed too, though: the SM4250.

It should come as no surprise that the SM4250 is, in fact, a Qualcomm chipset. It's a pretty new one, too—the Snapdragon 460 that was launched earlier in the year. It's safe to assume that OnePlus will be launching a new phone in the near future that's equipped with the Snapdragon 460.

It's not an outlandish idea either, as there have been sightings of an unknown OnePlus device on benchmarks. A few weeks ago, a "OnePlus Clover" was spotted on Geekbench. That device may be linked to this one. It was also revealed a few days ago that OnePlus had certified an 18 W charger, which further shows that there are legs to this.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
