In just two weeks from now, Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is expected to introduce its 5G-enabled OnePlus 8 series phones.

While the phone has so far been referred to as the OnePlus 8 Lite, new information that has surfaced online suggests otherwise.

As per reliable tipster Max Weinbach, the phone will not be called the OnePlus 8 Lite. Instead, Weinbach claims the upcoming OnePlus mid-ranger will debut as the OnePlus Z. OnePlus' first mid-range phone, which was announced in October 2015, was called the OnePlus X.

The OnePlus Z is tipped to feature a similar design to the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro phones, although it won't be nearly as impressive in terms of hardware specs. According to information revealed by leaker Ishan Agarwal earlier this month, the OnePlus Z will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1000 chipset. It is also expected to come with a 90Hz AMOLED display, similar to the standard OnePlus 8.

While OnePlus CEO Pete Lau recently confirmed that the company will announce the OnePlus 8 series phones very soon, the OnePlus Z isn't likely to debut alongside the two flagship phones. Instead, the mid-range phone is tipped to be launched in July in most markets. Thanks to its mid-range specs, the phone be a lot more affordable than the OnePlus 8 series phones.
