There are several smartphone manufacturers, but in the end, you'll need a device that provides the fundamentals while also fitting into your lifestyle. And OnePlus may be able to give you the instruments you require.
Another Chinese smartphone behemoth created OnePlus! OnePlus was founded by ex-Oppo vice presidents Pete Lau and Carl Pei to produce high-quality smartphone models without burning a hole in one's wallet.
Since its inception in 2013, OnePlus has consistently produced some of the fascinating smartphones the world has ever seen. And, according to its initial goal, OnePlus phones are reasonably priced without sacrificing quality!
The following is a list of items released by the Chinese consumer electronics company, OnePlus.
The Oneplus Series:
The OnePlus 1:
The much-anticipated OnePlus One was the company's debut offering. It debuted on April 22, 2014, dubbed the "2014 Flagship Killer." The smartphone featured equivalent, and in some ways better, specifications to other flagship phones of the year but was marketed at a substantially reduced price of $299 for the 16 GB model or $349 for the 64 GB model. Inconsistencies in input, such as a faulty voice control system and oversensitive gesture shortcuts, also hampered the experience. A yellow ring would appear at the bottom of the display on some devices. The warranty did not cover this problem. One of the OnePlus One's flaws was the lack of a microSD card port. The lack of storage bottlenecked the device, and the absence of a detachable battery frustrated several users.
The OnePlus 2 was the company's follow-up to its successful initial phone. On July 27, 2015, a little more than a year after the OnePlus One was announced. It was billed as the "2016 Flagship killer" by the firm. The second-generation OnePlus phones were met with high expectations, thanks partly to the company's ability to generate a lot of buzz about the next device.
The OnePlus 2 has specs equivalent to other flagship phones, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. At the same time, the OnePlus chose not to include an NFC chip since it did not consider mobile payment to be a vital feature at the time.
OnePlus promised users that acquiring invitations for the OnePlus two would be more accessible and that handsets would arrive much faster than the OnePlus One. Carl Pei, however, stated in a public apology that the firm "messed up" the launch and that OnePlus "just began shipping substantial numbers [the week of September 10 2015], about a month after [the] first scheduled shipment date."
Despite promising 24 months of software upgrades and informing customers that the OnePlus Two will be updated to Android 7 "Nougat," it was later announced that this would not happen, leaving the device on Android 6.0.1.
When questioned during one of the pop-up events in New York City shortly after the OnePlus 2, Th co-founder Carl Pei hinted at the release of a new smartphone around the end of 2015. The OnePlus X, the successor to the OnePlus 2, was OnePlus' entry into the cheap phone market, measuring 5 inches rather than the One and 2's 5.5 inches. On October 29, 2015, the phone was announced. The phone cost $249 and featured the same core components as the OnePlus One from a year and a half ago, but it had an AMOLED display. The OnePlus X ships with Oxygen OS version 2.1.2, OnePlus' version of Android 5.1.1 "Lollipop."
On June 14, 2016, the OnePlus three was revealed. This was the first OnePlus smartphone not available through the invite system. The One plus 3 was the One Plus company's first "metal unibody" phone, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Storage of 6 GB RAM, and 64 GB of UFS 2.0 storage. Critics highly received the phone, mainly owing to its inexpensive pricing and good specs.
On November 15, 2016, the OnePlus 3T was introduced as a slight improvement to the still-new OnePlus 3. As a part of the update, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 was replaced by the Snapdragon 821. A larger battery, 64 or 128 GB of storage, and a 16 MP front-facing camera were also released. The phone was released in the United States on November 22, 2016, and in the European Union on November 28, 2016.
The OnePlus 5 was introduced on June 20, 2017, as the successor to the OnePlus 3, omitting the number 4 since it is considered unlucky in China. It debuted with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a dual-lens camera, up to 8 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of Storage. It was available in two colour options: Midnight Black and Slate Gray. Soft Gold, a third limited edition colour, was introduced on August 7, 2017. On September 20, 2017, another limited edition colour was released in cooperation with Castelbajac.
The OnePlus 5T, the successor to the OnePlus 5, was revealed on November 16, 2017. It retains the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and storage choices from its predecessor. A more prominent 6" 18:9 display, a new "Face Unlock" face recognition system and a better dual-lens camera are notable features. The gadget, which shipped with Android 7 Nougat, recently received a significant upgrade based on Android 10 Q.
OnePlus started forums for the OnePlus 6 in April 2018, and the smartphone was released on May 17, 2018, with sales beginning on May 22, 2018. The phone is notable for having a display notch and being water-resistant (although not IP Code rated). The smartphone was the first in the company's lineup to have a 256 GB internal storage option. It comes with a 6.28-inch FHD+ Optic AMOLED display.
It has a 16 MP primary sensor with OIS and EIS, a 20 MP depth sensor for portrait photos, and it can record 4K quality 60 FPS video. It also has a 16 MP front camera with EIS. It has a 3300 mAh battery and a OnePlus Dash Charge of 20 watts. It came in four colours: "Mirror" black, "Midnight" black, "Silk" white, and red.
On October 29, 2018, the OnePlus 6T was launched. It debuted with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, a dual-lens camera, up to the storage of 8 GB RAM, and 256 GB of Storage. It also has a more significant 6.41" Optic AMOLED display and comes with OxygenOS, based on Android Pie (Android 9). The camera offers a 'Nightscape' option that employs a longer exposure time to take better images in low-light situations.
It was the first OnePlus device to use an in-display fingerprint scanner. OnePlus established a Guinness World Record for "the most people unwrapping a phone at the same time" with the introduction of the OnePlus 6T. OnePlus 6Towners first noticed an unexpected battery depletion issue, resolved after a few days of use.
The OnePlus models OnePlus 7, and the OnePlus 7 Pro were released on May 14, 2019, in Bangalore, New York, and London and sold on May 17. [citation required] The OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 are the first smartphones to have Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 3.0 storage. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC powers them. They, like their predecessor, have an optical in-display fingerprint sensor, and the front-facing camera sports a 16-megapixel sensor. They debuted with Android 9.0 Pie.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a 6.67" curved edge-to-edge AMOLED display with a 3K resolution and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. It is available in three configurations: storage of 6 GB RAM with 128 GB storage, and 8 GB RAM with 256 GB storage along with 12 GB RAM with 256 GB storage. The OnePlus 7 Pro also has a non-removable 4000 mAh battery and Warp Charge 30 technology.
The OnePlus 7 cheap model, which debuted with the flagship Pro model, is available in two colours: "Mirror" grey and Nebula blue. It consists of storage 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, or storage of 8 GB RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal storage. It has a 6.41-inch FHD+ Optic AMOLED Display with a resolution of 23401080 pixels. The primary sensor on the back camera is a 48 MP Sony IMX 586 sensor, while the depth sensor is a 5 MP.
OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro:
On September 26, 2019, the OnePlus 7T was formally unveiled in New Delhi and sold on September 28. Two weeks later, the OnePlus 7T Pro was revealed. The OnePlus 7T was developed after the successor to the OnePlus 7, which was introduced five months before for the European and Asian markets, and the OnePlus 6T for the American market, where the OnePlus seven was not offered.
It has a different form factor than its predecessors, having a 20:9 aspect ratio instead of 19.5:9. As a result, OnePlus made the phone somewhat taller than the earlier 6T and seven but maintained the same width. OnePlus also incorporated the 90 Hz Fluid AMOLED display from the OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus kept the resolution at 24001080 pixels, but the screen was one of its main selling features.
While the OnePlus 7T is a considerable boost over the 7, the 7T Pro is a more modest upgrade over the 7 Pro. It has the same display, body, and camera system as the previous model, with the key differences being quicker charging, a faster CPU, and a somewhat quieter pop-up camera.
Both phones use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855+ SoC and have the same in-display fingerprint scanner as the OnePlus 7 Series. Each phone had only one model: 8 GB RAM with 128 GB storage for the 7T (with an additional 256 GB storage variant available for the Indian market alone), and the storage of 8 GB RAM with 256 GB storage for the 7T Pro.
Both feature a somewhat better battery than their predecessors, with the 7T including a 3800 mAh non-removable battery and Warp Charge 30T technology, allowing them to be ultimately charged in under an hour.
The OnePlus 7T included a new camera system with the same primary and wide-angle lenses as the OnePlus seven but also included a third 2x telephoto lens (instead of 3x for the 7 Pro and 7T Pro). Both have a new macro mode that allows them to shoot images up to 2.5 cm away from the subject.
The OnePlus 7T is available in two colours, "Frosted" silver or "Glacier" blue, while the 7T Pro is available in "Haze" blue, all with matte glass finishes. Both phones were the first to arrive with Android 10 and OxygenOS 10.0 out of the box.
OnePlus 8 Series:
On April 14, 2020, the OnePlus eight and OnePlus 8 Pro were launched, and they were released in Europe and on April 29 in the United States. The OnePlus 8 Pro is the company's first phone to support wireless charging (Warp Charge 30W). Water resistance is offered on all 8 Pro versions; save the 8, which is only available on carrier variants.
The selfie camera is housed in a circular notch in the top left-hand corner of the iPhone 8 and 8 Pro display. Therefore this was required to acquire the IP68 designation. Both employ Fluid AMOLED panels with HDR10+ support, as does the 7T series.
However, both phones now have curved displays, previously the 7T had a flat display, and the 7T Pro had a curved display. The eight features a 6.55-inch 1080p 20:9 screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, while the 8 Pro has a bigger 6.78-inch 1440p 19.8:9 screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The iPhone 8 Pro is one of the first smartphones to use a 30-bit screen to display 1 billion colours.
The OnePlus 8T was introduced on October 14, 2020, and sold on October 20 in Europe and October 23 in the United States. The T-Mobile US variant is known as the OnePlus 8T+. The 8T deviates from the format established by the seven series; OnePlus has announced that it does not intend to release a Pro variant. The general design is identical to the 8, with a circular cutout for the front-facing camera in the display. It retains the same Fluid AMOLED display with HDR10+ capabilities but switches to a flat display. The display specs remain virtually the same, with a 6.55-inch 1080p 20:9 screen; however, the refresh rate has been upped from 90 Hz to 120 Hz, matching the 8 Pro.
OnePlus 9 Series:
The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro were announced on March 23, 2021. The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are the first phones to include Hasselblad optics. The 9 and 9 Pro boasts fluid AMOLED screens with HDR10+ compatibility and a refresh rate of 120 Hz; the 9 has a flat 6.55-inch 1080p screen, while the 9 Pro has a curved 6.7-inch 1440p screen. The 9 Pro has an LTPO backplane that can modify the refresh rate dynamically and display 1 billion colours.
The OnePlus 9R and the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro were released on March 23, 2021. Like the OnePlus 9, this phone sports a flat 6.55" AMOLED display with HDR10+ compatibility and a refresh rate of 120Hz. This phone, however, does not employ Hasselblad optics. The Snapdragon 870 CPU is combined with the Adreno 650 GPU to power this phone. The gadget is available with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of Storage. Although the phone enables rapid 65W wired charging, it does not offer wireless charging. The camera configuration is identical to that of the OnePlus 8T.
OnePlus Nord: The OnePlus Nord was revealed on July 21, 2020, and was launched on August 4, 2020, in Europe and India. The Nord is OnePlus's first mid-range smartphone since the OnePlus X. It is compatible with Warp Charge 30T. Furthermore, the Nord features a single woofer rather than the dual loudspeakers seen on the 8 and 8 Pro. The Nord, like the 8 and 8 Pro, has a display cutout in the upper left corner that is expanded to accommodate the two front-facing cameras. Like the 8, it has a Fluid AMOLED display with a 1080p 20:9 resolution, HDR10+ compatibility, and a refresh rate of 90 Hz; however, it has a smaller 6.44-inch screen and a flat display.
Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 from OnePlus:
On October 26, 2020, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 were unveiled as lower-cost alternatives to the original Nord. Unlike the Nord, both are available in North America and Europe. The Nord N10 5G is a low-cost device. It sports a 6.49-inch display with the exact resolution of 90 Hz as the Nord.
As a result, the fingerprint scanner has been relocated to the back of the device in place of an optical unit. It comes with 128 GB UFS / 6 GB RAM powered by the Snapdragon 690 and Adreno 619L GPU. It features a microSDXC card slot for extra storage, dual speakers, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The front camera features a single 16 MP sensor and lacks the ultrawide lens seen on the Nord. It comes in only one colour, Midnight Ice, and is pre-installed with Android 10 and Oxygen OS 10.5.
The Nord N100 is an entry-level device. It includes a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a microSDXC card slot, dual speakers, and a 3.5 mm audio socket, just like the Nord N10 5G.
OnePlus Nord CE 5G and Nord N200 5G:
The OnePlus models OnePlus Nord CE 5G and Nord N200 5G was launched On June 10, 2021, and June 21, 2021, respectively. The Nord CE 5G is available in Asia and Europe, but the Nord N200 5G is only available in North America. The Nord CE 5G sits between the Nord N10 5G and the Nord.
It sports a 6.43-inch 1080p AMOLED at 90 Hz display, an optical fingerprint reader, the Snapdragon 750G with Adreno 619 GPU, and three storage options. The back camera array consists of a 64 MP wide sensor, an 8 MP ultrawide sensor, and a 2 MP depth sensor, while the front camera includes a 16 MP sensor.
The battery has a 4500 mAh and is compatible with Warp Charge 30T+. It comes in three colours: Blue Void, Charcoal Ink, and Silver Ray, and it comes pre-installed with Android 11 and OxygenOS 11.
OnePlus Nord 2 5G:
The Nord 2 5G is the successor of the original Nord. The display is a 6.43-inch 1080p AMOLED with an optical fingerprint scanner that runs at 90 Hz. It is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor and has two storage options. The back camera includes a new 50 MP wide sensor and 8 MP ultrawide and 2 MP monochrome units; the front camera has a single 32 MP sensor. The battery has a 4500 mAh with Warp Charge 65 for rapid charging. It comes in Gray Sierra, Blue Haze, and Green-Wood colours, and it comes pre-installed with Android 11 and OxygenOS 11.
