Having collected many reviews, the vendor summed up and announced what user suggestions were taken into work.

      In this release of insider information: the release date of the new OnePlus Z smartphone has become known; Redmi Note 10 and Note 10 Pro are preparing for release; Meizu 17 Pro will receive one of the main features of the iPad Pro (2020).
      The release date of the new OnePlus Z smartphone has become known

      Following the presentation of the flagship smartphones OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, the company is preparing for the presentation of the more affordable OnePlus Z model, which users never expected during the previous event. According to insider information, the company will present the device in July this year - the corresponding teaser has already appeared on the network.
      Past leaks pointed to OnePlus plans to equip the "lite" version of the smartphone with a MediaTek Dimensity 1000L processor and a modem with support for fifth-generation mobile networks. The back of the device is supposed to house the main camera unit of three sensors. Other specifications and the cost of the upcoming new product are still unknown.
      Redmi Note 10 and Note 10 Pro are preparing for the release

      In the database of the Chinese regulator 3C, two new Redmi gadgets were registered at once under the code numbers M2004J7AC and M2004J7BC. According to a well-known network informant, we are talking about unannounced smartphones Redmi Note 10 and Note 10 Pro.
      According to the source, the devices will be built on the basis of the MediaTek Dimensity 800 and 800 Plus mobile platforms, respectively. The younger version of the device will receive support for 22.5 W fast charging technology, while the Pro version will “pump” the 33 W power supply. When the presentation will take place, and how much the news will cost customers, the network informant does not specify.
      Meizu 17 Pro will receive one of the main features of the new iPad

      After the announcement of the presentation date of the flagship smartphone Meizu 17 Pro, company representatives regularly publish new teasers that reveal the technical features of the gadget. Another image emphasizes the presence of a 3D depth sensor, which is located on the back of the device.
      Presumably, this module will work similarly to that Apple installed in the iPad Pro (2020). It is necessary to expand the functionality of applications that use augmented and virtual reality technologies.
      The presentation of the Meizu 17 Pro and its basic version called Meizu 17 will take place on May 8, 2020.

      Together with the new smartphones, OnePlus introduced the Bullets Wireless Z wireless headphones. Compared to last year's Bullets Wireless 2,  they got longer battery life and reduced latency.

      OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z are made in the form factor of intra-channel plugs with replaceable silicone nozzles and neck attachment. The headphones have built-in magnets to prevent entanglement. On the wire is a remote control for controlling playback and volume control.
      One of the key improvements of the new model was the increased battery life — from 14 to 20 hours. But fast charging remained unchanged — 10 hours of music playback after 10 minutes at the outlet. The headphones are charged via the built-in USB Type-C connector.

      An important feature of the headphones manufacturer calls ultra-low delay time — only 110 MS. Additionally, support for the Google Assistant voice assistant and IP55 water protection has been announced. You can also quickly switch between different devices that you are connected to.
      The new OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z will be available in white, black, blue and green for $49.95.
