OnePlus launched its one of the most hyped phones of 2020, the “OnePlus Nord” in India and Europe. Most of the specifications had already been leaked earlier. While OnePlus has been popular with the premium range of phones like the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, the Nord series aims at the budget-oriented users who want good hardware along with a Flagship level software experience. Most of the midrange phones don’t have good software experience and even very late or no updates. OnePlus has officially committed that the OnePlus Nord will be getting guaranteed updates till 2 years. With this the OnePlus aims to build a reliable ecosystem, where the user experience is the utmost priority. The clean and ad-free software is the feature that most users like about the OnePlus.
The OnePlus Nord has the Snapdragon 765G Octa-core (1x2.4 GHz Kryo 475 Prime & 1x2.2 GHz Kryo 475 Gold & 6x1.8 GHz Kryo 475 Silver) with an Adreno 620 GPU. It comes with a 6.44 inch full HD display with a 90Hz screen refresh rate, protected by a Gorilla Glass 5. It also has the under-screen fingerprint reader.
The front camera has a 32MP wide+ 8MP ultra-wide which can record videos up to 4k@30/60fps. The rear camera system has a Quad Camera setup with a 48Mp primary sensor. The back camera has 48MP wide + 8MP ultrawide + 2 MP macro + 5 MP depth sensors. OnePlus advertises the camera as a Flagship level camera as it has a built-in OIS along with EIS support. The OIS helps in low light photography as well as super smooth videos.
On the connectivity front, sadly it lacks the 3.5mm audio jack. It comes with a USB Type-C support supporting Warp charge of 30W. It has Bluetooth 5.1, Wi-Fi 5, GPS, and NavIC support. It comes in three variants in India 6 + 64 GB at Rs 24,999, 6 + 128 GB at Rs 27,999 and 12 + 256 GB at Rs 29,999. Although the higher variant will be available to purchase from 4th August, the cheapest 6+64 variant will only be available in September.
