- OnePlus has confirmed the launch timeline for the OnePlus Z/Nord.
- The company revealed the launch month in morse code.
- Thereâ€™s no set date yet, but the phone will launch in just a few weeks.
Weâ€™ve been waiting a long time for OnePlus to finally announce the OnePlus Z launch date. It was March when early rumors started floating around about the OnePlus 8 Lite. Soon, tipsters suggested that the phone will be called the OnePlus Z and now, some believe that itâ€™ll be named the OnePlus Nord. Whatever the new phoneâ€™s moniker might be, OnePlus has now confirmed that itâ€™s coming in July.
Taking to its new OnePlusLiteZThing Instagram account, the company posted a teaser in morse code (see image below). Decoding it reveals the word â€œJuly,â€� all but confirming that the OnePlus Z/OnePlus Nord will launch next month.
A leak previously revealed that the affordable OnePlus phone will launch in India on July 10. OnePlus has already confirmed that the device will be introduced in India and Europe, so a July 10 launch seems quite believable.
It looks like OnePlus will reveal more information about the launch of the phone through subsequent code-cracking challenges on Instagram. This one was named â€œCrack the Code #1,â€� so we expect more of these to follow.
Itâ€™ll be interesting to see how the company handles sales of the new phone and that if it can meet the demand for it. Considering itâ€™ll be a mid-range phone, the interest in it could be pretty high. But OnePlus is already having trouble getting the OnePlus 8 series in peopleâ€™s hands. The flagship phones are still hard to buy in markets like India because of the companyâ€™s flash sale model. We hope the company has readied enough stock of the OnePlus Z/Nord before it makes any release date commitments.
