Since the beginning of the year, we have criticized Xiaomi a lot, for its controversial strategy of “recycling” smartphones among the various subsidiaries. Not being alone in this type of strategy, new information indicates that OnePlus may also end up following this path.
Over the years, the close proximity between OnePlus and Oppo has given us in numerous situations clear indications about the design and functionality of future OnePlus smartphones. However, now that the manufacturer is launching its first budget smartphone, it is possible that it will limit itself to “recycling” one of Oppo’s current models.
I recall that both manufacturers belong to the BBK Electronics conglomerate (as well as Vivo and iQOO), easily explaining their proximity and constant sharing of “inspiration”.
OnePlus Clover could be practically identical to the already official Oppo A53
The fact that the OnePlus Clover may appear as a “recycled” variant of the Oppo A53 may not be as bad as you might think. The Oppo A53 is most likely one of the most interesting smartphones in the budget segment, but it is far from having the same international reach as a OnePlus smartphone would have.
This way, this could end up being a perfect move to get the most out of a smartphone that is far from reaching its maximum potential.
Between the two smartphones, until now, there is only one difference in their specifications, the presence of a 6,000mAh battery in the OnePlus Clover (Oppo A53 with 5,000mAh). Obviously, the OnePlus smartphone will arrive with OxygenOS 10 while the “sister brand” model has ColorOS 7.
Alleged OnePlus Clover specifications
- 6.5 “inch IPS LCD screen with HD + resolution and punch hole
- 90Hz refresh rate
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor
- Up to 6GB of RAM
- Up to 128GB of internal memory, expandable via microSD card
- Triple rear camera: 13MP + 2MP (macro) + 2MP (depth)
- 16 megapixel front camera
- Fingerprint reader on the rear panel
- 6,000mAh battery with support for fast charging at 18W
- Android 10, OxygenOS 10
With regard to its price, it is expected that the OnePlus Clover will also follow the example of the OPPO A53, arriving at a price between € 140 and € 200. There is still no information on a possible presentation date, but it is believed that it could happen as early as September.
