Only a day ago we learned that OnePlus plans to launch a new smartphone in the Nord series this year on the US market. The people of XDA-Developers looked at the OxygenOS 10.5 build for OnePlus Nord and found evidence of a new OnePlus smartphone that may be using Qualcomm's latest budget 5G platform – the Snapdragon 690.  The OxygenOS code references an unannounced OnePlus device codenamed "Billie" along with the model numbers "BE2025", "BE2026", "BE2028" or "BE2029". The model number falls into the numerical naming strategy for OnePlus Nord and the successive number identifiers for different markets. These special model numbers are associated with the term “SM6350”, which turns out to be a part number for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 5G SoC.
The code also suggests that there could be two variations of the upcoming OnePlus device with the internal name "Billie." Although the details are still rare, the upcoming OnePlus Nord series smartphone may seem cheaper, given the hierarchical positioning of the Snapdragon 690 SoC under the Snapdragon 765G silicon that powers the OnePlus Nord.
