Although we don’t yet have an official launch date, pricing or confirmation details, OnePlus has now confirmed that its upcoming smartphone will indeed be called OnePlus Nord.
You’re probably wondering why they needed to confirm it and you’re right. We are not sure why they are doing this now. Either way, the upcoming affordable Android phone is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G-enabled chipset, at least 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, dual front-facing camera setup as well as a quad-camera setup on the back.
These were all speculated for some time but with the official launch, the company has officially tweaked the OnePlus Nord Instagram account even more frequently. There, the firm released the first episode of a mini-documentary series called New Beginnings. The 10-minute episode even gives a glimpse of some of our prototype OnePlus Nord devices – although it’s not clear if it represents the official design.
Of course, the firm should slip the name “Nord” at the beginning of last week with the now-removed Instagram post, but as is customary, confirmation is now imminent. OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau says:
The launch of the OnePlus Nord product line marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for OnePlus. The ‘Never Settle’ spirit is centered around sharing the best technology and products with the world, but it’s also about letting us know our challenges and moving beyond our comfort zone. We take great pride in our flagship products and will continue to build more technologically advanced flashships for our users. Now we look forward to sharing the OnePlus experience with more users worldwide through this new product line.
After the launch date on the Google Pixel 4 slipped and is still unknown, the OnePlus Nord with the right price in the selected area could be an Android device to go to a lot of people out there. Rumors offer a sub-ড 400 when the exchange rate is considered. It will truly counter the dominance of brands like Xiaomi and Realm in regions like India and the Asian subcontinent.
OnePlus has further confirmed that the first OnePlus Nord device will come soon after the official launch of an “extremely limited beta program” in the United States. Hopefully, this could be a small soaking test before a full launch later in the year. Hopefully more details will be published in the coming days.
