One of the most interesting aspects of the OnePlus Z was that it would be the first smartphone in the world to arrive with the most powerful MediaTek chip, the Dimensity 1000. Now, a leaked image seems to tell us otherwise.
The information comes from the well-known Max J filter on Twitter. The tweet doesn’t reveal much in terms of specs but shows that the OnePlus Z will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 chip.

OnePlus may have considered the idea of using the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 chip but then switched to the Qualcomm chip. OnePlus, after all, has always used Qualcomm chips on its phones, so the decision to stick with the American brand.
This means we will have to wait even longer to see MediaTek’s high-end chip in action. The OnePlus Z is expected to arrive sometime in the third quarter of 2020.
