The smartphone world is full of many phones, and they all have different features. Since 10 years ago, phones with screens larger than 5 inches were considered gigantic, but now, phones with 5.7-inch screens are standard. The number of phones with small displays is declining as phone makers produce fewer and fewer small phones.
OnePlus is also preparing to launch a phone with a small screen, DCS reported on Weibo. As of right now, the model name, features, and release date of the phone are all unknown. This is preliminary information. OnePlus may release a phone with a small screen in the coming months.
It’s good news that companies are trying to revive compact phones after a long absence. Xiaomi 13 features a 6.36-inch screen on a compact phone. Xiaomi 14 used the same screen size and produced a crisp image with a pixel density of 460ppi, even though it was a tiny phone. To compete with Xiaomi, OnePlus should launch a competitive offering.
We expect to see models with the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor in Q4 2024 as many brands have already started testing them. In addition to testing high-performance chips, brands also make design changes to their products. The new OnePlus 13 is designed with attention to detail this time around.
According to Digital Chat Station, OnePlus is internally testing Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 prototype products and will switch to a new design style.
It’s because the prototype Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 device reportedly missing the circular Deco design and stainless steel hinge. This may or may not be true. There is no doubt that OnePlus will make some changes to the new OnePlus 13. It will be interesting to see if the information is accurate in the future.
