A new report from a tipster has provided intel on the roadmap for the Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus for the year 2022. To recall, OnePlus used to launch only one smartphone per year in its early days which later on increased to two with the introduction of its T series devices. Gradually with the introduction of the Pro models, the number increased to four per year. Now with the company’s merger with Oppo and new Nord series devices, the number has been ever increasing. Let’s take a look at the details provided by the tipster.
Possible Roadmap for OnePlus
The known tipster Yogesh Brar has shared an idea of the timeline for the launch of the OnePlus smartphones in 2022. OnePlus has already launched a few devices in 2022 and the list from the tipster suggests at least six smartphones will debut between March and the third quarter of 2022. It is most likely that the brand will introduce more models as the list doesn’t mention the successor devices to budget Nord models.
According to the list provided by the tipster, the OnePlus 10 Pro will launch in March followed by OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite in April. We can expect OnePlus Nord 2T might arrive in late April or early May. OnePlus 10R and OnePlus Nord 3 are expected to arrive in May and July respectively. OnePlus Nord 3 could also be launched as OnePlus Nord Pro. Lastly, the OnePlus 10 Ultra or possibly the OnePlus 10 Pro+ could launch in late Q3 2022.
