OnePlus is busy engaging with fans on social media and the company even started a new Instagram page called "onepluslitezthing" to give eager fans an early peek of what's coming. While the Chinese smartphone brand is maintaining a tight lid and trying to tease just enough to keep up the hype, a crucial bit of information was revealed in one of the posts.

OnePlus Z aka OnePlus Nord, the company's newest affordable smartphone line, is coming next month. The company has decided to bring the OnePlus Z series in India and Europe first before expanding to other markets.

"As we have always done when we try something new, we are going to start relatively small with this new product line by first introducing it in Europe and India," Lau said in the forum post. "But don't worry, we're also looking to bring more affordable smartphones to North America in the near future as well."
