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.
World’s Largest Metaverse Developer Opens Dubai Office
LandVault, the largest metaverse creator, is expanding its presence into the MENA region.
LandVault, the world’s largest metaverse developer, will expand operations to Dubai later this month as part of an ongoing strategy to boost its presence in the MENA region. The company aims to help local businesses gain a foothold in the expanding web 3.0 universe and sees exciting opportunities to bolster its client portfolio.
So far, metaverse developer LandVault has lived up to its name, creating and curating over 100 square feet of virtual space for a diverse range of organizations, including the nearby Yas Marina Circuit, Aldar, Mastercard, Standard Chartered, World of Women, Hershey’s, and many more.
The Dubai government’s Metaverse Strategy is one of the key reasons LandVault has been inspired to move to the region, as leaders plan to transform the Emirate into one of the world’s top 10 metaverse economies by 2030. Eventually, it’s hoped that in excess of 1,000 companies in the blockchain and web 3.0 spaces will be inspired to set up entities in the region, creating around 40,000 new jobs in the process.
“We are excited to open our office in Dubai and to be a part of the vibrant tech community in the UAE. The MENA region is a key market for us, and we believe that our presence in Dubai will allow us to assist the region and explore new opportunities. We are also excited about the potential for the metaverse in the real estate industry in the UAE. We look forward to working with developers and real estate companies to showcase their properties in a new and innovative way,” says Sam Huber, CEO of LandVault.
Alongside developing the metaverse from its new Dubai office, LandVault will also deploy its technology to assist the UAE’s real estate sector. Developers will soon be able to showcase their projects in a way that was never previously possible, reaching a much wider audience with immersive and interactive property tours and even virtual showrooms.
