OnePlus could now enter the budget phone segment in India to compete with the likes of Xiaomi and Realme, according to a leak.
Yogesh Brar said on Twitter, OnePlus could soon launch a budget smartphone that will be priced below Rs 20,000. It seems like Oppo has taken the driver seat after the merger and wants OnePlus to enter a segment it hasn’t explored yet.
The smartphones are expected to arrive under the Nord lineup. They could be launched as soon as next quarter or Q2 of 2022. At present, OnePlus sitting in India’s mid-range and premium segment while it has launched budget smartphones in the US. However, this will be the first time it will be doing so in India as well.
