The documents are meant for an LTE-only OnePlus device, presumably a budget Nord model, that is identical to an OPPO phone which bears the model number CPH2387 and is believed to be the Oppo A57 4G that was unveiled last week. The letter notes that OnePlus wants to rebrand the device as its own.

While the fact that OPPO and OnePlus are owned by the same parent company has never been a secret, the two companies have recently been closer than most fans would want. OnePlus phones, dating back to the OnePlus 6, have been accused of being rebranded OPPO phones, and the two businesses are no longer even pretending to be separate organisations. According to Android Authority, OPPO sent a letter to the FCC requesting permission to promote one of its phones as a OnePlus device.
When OnePlus started out, it focused on the enthusiast market and had an identity of its own. This began to change by the end of 2020 and OPPO and OnePlus later merged their R&D units. OnePlus’ software overlay OxygenOS began to reek of OPPO’s ColorOS, but the backlash that the companies received for this was so severe that it was announced that though the two will continue to use the same codebase, the two operating systems won’t be unified. The two will still likely continue selling each other’s products with a few tweaks here and there. For instance, one rumor says that the OPPO Find N will be a blueprint for OnePlus’ first foldable phone. Another leak claims that the OPPO Reno 8 could be a OnePlus 10 Pro knockoff.

The mystery OnePlus Nord device will essentially be a Oppo A57 4G with a different main camera Not much else of importance is mentioned in the documents but if you are wondering what the mystery OnePlus phone could offer, the Oppo A57 4G features a 6.5-inches LCD screen and the MediaTek Helio G35 SoC and supports 33W charging. Whether it will be good enough to outshine the best cheap phones of 2022 remains to be seen.
The FCC document mentions the changes that OnePlus will make to the OPPO CPH2387 to transform it into a OnePlus device. The first, and most important thing is that the model number will be changed to CPH2469 and the company name will be changed to OnePlus. The battery cover will be stamped with a OnePlus logo and the color of the USB cable will be changed to red from green. The main camera will be replaced with a higher resolution 50MP sensor and the device will run OxygenOS instead of ColorOS. The dimensions remain the same at 163.74 x 75.03 x 7.99mm and the battery capacity also remains unchanged at 5,000mAh.
