For the last few weeks, there have been reports that OnePlus is going to launch a budget device for the first time. Last week, there were reports about a handset that was codenamed ‘Clover’ and now as per Android Central’s report, there are rumors about more handsets that are codenamed as ‘Lemonade’, ‘Bengal’, and ‘Billie’.

While the ‘Billie’ is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 690 SoC, there is no information regarding the expected processor for ‘Lemonade’ and ‘Bengal.’ This is not the first time that an OnePlus handset with Snapdragon 690 SoC has been alleged. Back in July, a statement by XDA Developers claimed that there is evidence that OnePlus is working on launching “at least” one smartphone that is going to come powered by Qualcomm’s new 5G Snapdragon 690 processor.

Recently, it was reported that OnePlus is working on launching a handset with Snapdragon 662 or 665 SoC as well which is likely to be priced between Rs 16,000-Rs 18,000.

 A report by Android Central also suggests the codename for the next flagship smartphone and successor to the OnePlus 8 — OnePlus 8T — has also come to light which is claimed to be ‘Kebab.’
