Later this month, OnePlus will launch two new smartphones and a set of truly wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds, as revealed by the company on Twitter.
The announcement comes after the launch of OnePlus 10 Pro in India. Offering leading camera specifications, new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform, and many other noteworthy features, the OnePlus 10 Pro is one of the hottest smartphones of 2022, but its steeper price puts it out of the reach of many consumers.
The two upcoming smartphones, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 (Lite) and the OnePlus 10R 5G, will both be more affordable than the OnePlus 10 Pro, but you can expect the same excellent value OnePlus is known for.
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 (Lite) is a mid-range device with a Qualcomm SM6375 Snapdragon 695 5G chipset, up to 8 GB of RAM, and a 64 MP rear camera that’s aided by a dedicated 2 MP macro lens and a 2 MP depth lens.
The OnePlus 10R 5G is a high-end phone whose 6.7” AMOLED display, MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chipset, 50 MP, f/1.9 main lens, 8 MP ultrawide lens, and 2 MP macro lens should be able to satisfy even smartphone enthusiasts.
Both the OnePlus Nord CE 2 (Lite) and the OnePlus 10R 5G are rumored to support quick charging. The OnePlus 10R is expected to be available with 150W fast charging, which would make it possible to recharge its Li-Po 5000 mAh battery from 0% to 50% in just 5 minutes.
Not much is known at this point about the upcoming set of truly wireless stereo earbuds that will be unveiled by OnePlus later this month. Leaked renders suggest that they will be Nord-branded, but their features and specifications remain a mystery.
Yalla!Hub Forms New Partnership With WEE Marketplace
The collaboration will accelerate e-commerce digitalization and allow for speedy deliveries across the Gulf countries.
After raising $6 million to expand into Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Yalla!Hub is now set to collaborate with WEE to facilitate the sale of products through both YallaMarket and the WEE marketplace. The companies plan to enhance the GCC e-commerce market using a range of innovative solutions for sales and delivery, presenting new opportunities for Emirati-based and foreign suppliers.
“This collaboration with WEE Marketplace signifies a major step forward in our mission to revolutionize e-commerce through digitalization in the UAE and GCC, making market entry and operations smoother both for customers and businesses. With this partnership, we’re able to extend the reach of brands to a wider audience,” explained Leo Dovbenko, CEO of Yalla!Hub.
Meanwhile, new partner WEE is uniquely positioned in the UAE and already well known for fast delivery services. The company’s WEE Marketplace will soon feature goods from Yalla!Hub on their platform, empowering Dubai shoppers with 1-hour delivery windows and a next-day service across the rest of the Emirates.
“WEE Marketplace and Yalla!Hub are absolute leaders of the UAE fast e-commerce market, and this partnership opens new horizons for brands, allowing them to enter at once both platforms. We choose the brands very carefully, aiming to give the best products to our customers,” said Anastasia Kim, CEO and co-founder of WEE marketplace.
The Emirati e-commerce market has now reached a value of nearly $13 billion and is expected to grow to $20 billion by 2027. Express deliveries account for 5.5% of total merchandise turnover, which currently stands at around $700 million. Among the express delivery categories, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, flowers, and groceries lead the way.
