Rumor | OnePlus' Dimensity 1200-powered phone will have a 50MP main sensor and a flat screen
OnePlus has stuck with Snapdragon processors for its phones since the brand's inception. However, it is touted to introduce a MediaTek Dimensity SoC for the first time in 2021. It is the 1200, a 5G platform with some specs in common with Qualcomm's 888 flagship.
The phone to be based on this new-to-OnePlus silicon is thought to form part of its Nord series. Nevertheless, Digital Chat Station now asserts that it will still look much like a 9 Pro flagship unit from the back, albeit with a flash module in place of one of this phone's minor lenses.
Then again, it is also now believed to have a different main sensor: the Sony IMX766 from the OPPO Find X3 Pro. It may have a front panel more like that of the OnePlus 9, however, as it is now slated to lack curved edges and have a punch-hole camera in one corner.
Digital Chat Station's additional new comments on this subject (when translated) could be interpreted to mean that this device is meant for international markets as much as it is for OnePlus' native China. It might fall into the ~2000 yuan (~US$313) category in this country, which might be a positive indication for the cost of this "Nord 2" (or 9E, perhaps?) elsewhere.
