The upcoming OnePlus Z device has been the subject of intense leaks and rumors. One of the main things being talked about has been the device’s processor.
Earlier leaks suggested that the device would use MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000 SoC. A tipster, Ishan Agarwal, revealed this at the time. However, he made it clear that he was not entirely sure about it. Now, the latest leak has revealed that the OnePlus Z will not use the Dimensity 1000 chipset.
According to the latest rumor from another tipster, Max J., the OnePlus Z will not even be using a MediaTek chip at all. Rather, the device will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 5G SoC. The tipster shared an image that showed the earlier leaked design of the device with a single punch-hole and a chip marked “765” on it.
The Snapdragon 765 is probably the best mid-range chipset in the segment right now. According to Qualcomm, the chipset has the latest X52 Modem with 5G and 4K HDR streaming capabilities.
There were earlier rumors that the OnePlus Z would debut as the OnePlus 8 Lite. However, Max J. also revealed earlier that the device would likely launch in July 2020.
