arly information about the OnePlus Clover, a new budget device from the Chinese manufacturer, suggested that it will be equipped with less powerful hardware than the OnePlus 8 or OnePlus Nord variants. However, it seems that we will not have to wait long for the launch of this model, as we already know almost everything about the hardware it integrates.
OnePlus Clover could be launched at half price compared to the North
OnePlus Nord, equipped with high-performance mid-range hardware at 409 euros was a real surprise from the Chinese manufacturer, and the OnePlus Clover model could come at half this price. Of course, there will be major trade-offs in many categories, but the list of hardware specifications that Android Central has released suggests that it could provide a quality basic user experience.
This will not be a 5G model, like the OnePlus Nord, but will use a Snapdragon 460 chipset from the lower mid-range from Qualcomm. It will benefit from a 6.5 ”screen with HD + resolution, not Full HD, with IPS panel and configuration of 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. Given the specifications, the price does not seem very out of the ordinary. There are already several models from other Chinese manufacturers that offer similar or even better configurations at similar prices.
Screen: 6.52-inch HD + IPS LCD (1560 x 720)
Processor: Snapdragon 460 (4 x 1.8GHz Cortex A73 + 4 x 1.8GHz Cortex A53), 11nm
GPU: Adreno 610
Card: yes, microSD
Main camera: 13MP f / 2.2 + 2MP f / 2.4 + 2MP f / 2.4
Connectivity: 4G, Wi-Fi needle, Bluetooth 5.0
Battery: 6,000 mAh, fast charging 18W
Other: rear fingerprint sensor, 3.5 mm jack,
Probably one of the features that OnePlus will rely on is the 6,000 mAh battery capacity, with fast charging at 18W. Thus, the phone could exceed the two days of autonomy we have become accustomed to lately, with a lower performance processor and a low resolution screen.
OnePlus could also be based on brand recognition in the market, but also on quality software experience. Oxygen OS is still considered one of the best Android implementations on the market, offering well-developed customizations and software optimizations in the background.
Unlike the OnePlus Nord, the OnePlus Clover could be available internationally, including in the US market.
