The OnePlus Nord has got to be one of the most interesting phones for me that’s going to come out this year, I can barely contain the excitement. Not just for the phone itself but the whole idea behind it. So when the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro launched there were rumours that there will be a third variant called the OnePlus 8 lite it didn’t come out and then after that people are saying that there was going to be a cheaper variant called the OnePlus Z it didn’t come out and now we finally have it. OnePlus has officially stated it’s going to be called the OnePlus Nord.
Specifications ( Mostly Rumoured )
Company’s co-founder Carl Pei has confirmed that OnePlus Nord will be powered by Snapdragon 765G SoC. This information was divulged by Carl Pei in an interview with an online publication and was also confirmed by Qualcomm’s UK unit in a tweet.
OnePlus Nord will also feature an AMOLED Display.
Upon being asked about the camera Carl Pei said “We’ve seen that camera is probably the most used feature of a smartphone. It’s the number one use-case, so if we wanted to create a great product, the camera had to be great. With the OnePlus Nord we’re bringing a flagship-level camera to the mid-range price range, which I think consumers are going to be really excited by”. which suggests that it will feature a good camera system. It was later confirmed that OnePlus Nord’s camera system will come with OIS ( Optical Image Stabilization ).

Since India and Europe have a very good fan-base of OnePlus it’s going to launch in India and Europe first and then later a limited beta program in North America. In terms of strategy, it makes sense to hit the tried and tested markets first and then expand elsewhere.
OnePlus Nord was available for pre-order on OnePlus UK website on 1st July 2020 and was sold out in a matter of hours. OnePlus UK will also host another two rounds of pre-order, one on 8th July 2020 and second on 15th July 2020 respectively. OnePlus Nord will also be available for pre-order in India and will be launched on 21st July 2020 via an AR event. Follow OnePlus Nord’s Instagram account to get the latest news.
