Published On Jul 01, 2020
Previously known as OnePlus Z or Z Lite, OnePlus has finally announced that its new flagship affordable smartphone will be called OnePlus Nord. “New Beginnings” is a documentary series that takes you through the journey of the creation of the OnePlus Nord. In the first episode of the series, Nord was teased to be priced below $500 (roughly INR 38,000). This means that it will be much cheaper than the OnePlus 8 series which starts at INR 41,999. The episode also mentions that the Nord will hold a Scandinavian look, a "clean, calm, modern and minimalistic" design. Looking at the glimpse of the prototype, the Nord is also expected to have triple rear cameras and dual selfie cameras. To add to the list of expected specifications, in a tweet (which has now been taken down), Qualcomm revealed that they "are excited to work with OnePlus as they embark on new beginnings" hinting at the Nord being powered by their 5G-compatible Snapdragon chipset. It was later confirmed by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, that the Nord will be equipped with the Snapdragon 765G. In India, to know about the availability of the phone or get alerted on pre-orders, you can visit Amazon.in and sign up to be notified. A teaser reveals the Nord to be launched in July. However, further details of the launch are yet to be revealed. The Nord will be exclusive to Indian & European markets at first.
