OnePlus has shown off the planning of its upcoming mid-range smartphone, the OnePlus Nord. YouTuber Marques Brownlee interviewed OnePlus’ Global Director Carl Pei and showed off a couple of glimpses of the upcoming device.
Like the rumors indicated, the front of the device features two selfie cameras in an oval-shaped cutout. The phone’s appearance is like a Samsung Galaxy S10+ but with the opening punch on the other side of the display. the rear camera block follows an equivalent design language as earlier OnePlus phones by putting everything during a vertical strip, but on the Nord, the camera assembly is within the corner of the phone rather than centered within the middle like previous devices.
We now know most of the large points of the OnePlus Nord, because of OnePlus’ constant, iterative leaking. Previously, the corporate said the phone would be under $500, feature a Snapdragon 765G SoC, and are available with a “flagship camera.” Rumors previously pointed toward a 90Hz display, and today’s conversation hinted at that, with Pei saying, “When it involves displays, [the cost is] tons about volume, so now that 90Hz displays became really common, that drives the quantity up and therefore the price down.” Pei went onto say, “We spent tons on this display to make sure smooth scrolling, but we expect it’s worthwhile.”
The phone is shaping up to be a reasonably great-looking offering, but it won’t launch within us initially. The official explanation is from OnePlus CEO Pete Lau is that “we are getting to start relatively small with this new line by first introducing it in Europe and India. But don’t be concerned, we’re also looking to bring cheaper smartphones to North America within the near future also.”
The phone’s unveiling, to the extent there’s anything left to unveil, is July 21.
