2020 was a crazy year that brought us a lot of surprises and OnePlus getting into the mid-range market was one of those. And it seems that there are no signs of slowing down as a newly surfaced TUV Rheinland certificate suggests that another budget phone is on its way.
The certificate itself mentions OnePlus' name and a 33W-rated wall charger and since OnePlus has already moved its flagship lineup to 65W fast charging speeds, the one certified here is probably meant for another mid-range phone. Perhaps the rumored OnePlus 9E.
Other than the rated output of the charger itself, which is 11V/3A, the certification isn't very revealing. This is perhaps the first sign of OnePlus' next mid-range phone so we are yet to find out more details.
Xiaomi, Realme and even Samsung is doing that. Oneplus' strength is not that.
I thought you guys wanted the market flooded with cheap phones that are disposable after a few month's?
