The OnePlus Nord is here. Not that we haven’t heard anything about the phone but this mid-ranger has been mentioned here several times. Back in April, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed the company would be making affordable phones again. The mid-ranger, then called the OnePlus Z, was said to be coming this July. It was soon confirmed a new OnePlus smartphone series would roll out soon with features that are almost premium. One of the early information we learned was that it would come with dual 32MP plus 8MP selfie cameras.
The OnePlus Nord details have been shared but we’ve been taking things with a pinch of salt. The mid-ranger has been confirmed and soon, pre-orders went up. The pre-order release in Europe was a success as units were quickly sold out even without the consumers seeing the device.
After the pre-order, OnePlus begun releasing more teasers. A video on IG showed the first look of the smartphone. The official product launch was scheduled for today, July 21, in an AR keynote event. The phone did launch in augmented reality via an app.
The OnePlus Nord was also spotted on a Romanian e-commerce website with specs. Another blurry image showed the OnePlus Nord specs and features. The Chinese OEM once again confirmed the OnePlus Nord would come with dual and wide-angle selfie cameras.
Just a week ago, vlogger Marques Brownless sat down with OnePlus’ Carl Pei who shared with him the process of development, production, and even the pricing process of every phone in the market. And yesterday, we shared with you OnePlus Nord’s characteristics, promising powerful cameras, a smooth experience, and impressive design and quality. Today, we’re seeing the new smartphone with some new details. Pricing information is also now ready for your perusal.
OnePlus has shared the Nord pricing in regions where the phone will be available starting August 4. It will be sold in India and Europe. It won’t be out in North America yet but fifty North American users can get the chance to experience the phone via a limited beta program. More details HERE.
