OnePlus recently launched the OnePlus Nord, the affordable OnePlus device, done entirely in AR! The smartphone, as seen in the rumors, has the amazing specifications out of the box.
The OnePlus Nord will come with a Snapdragon 765G, along side, 12GB of RAM, however, no storage mentioned. However, we can expect it to come with 128GB of base storage here. The Display here is a 6.44-inch 90Hz Fluid AMOLED display, with amazing pixel density out of the box. You can have options to get the smartphone with up to 12GB of RAM.
One thing is amazing to mention that the Snapdragon 765G has 5G enabled, so it is going to be the first smartphone here in India to come with 5G under such an amazing cost!
Out of the box, you will get OnePlus’s near stock android, the OxygenOS 10.5. Under the UI, you get Android 10. OnePLus mentions around 280 optimizations in the OS. OnePlus also mentions that they have removed their own Dialer and Messages app, thus replacing it with the Google Dialer, Messages, and Duo for complete sync between the apps.
Now the camera: OnePlus Nord comes with the same 48MB Sony IMX 586 sensor that you saw in OnePlus 8. The camera is OIS enabled and can shoot video up to 4K. And thanks to AI, the images are going to be sharper and less noisy than ever! The second camera is an 8MP Ultra-Wide camera with a FOV of 119-degrees. The third camera is a 2MP Macro camera with a Focal distance of 4cm, giving those amazing punchy and focused pictures. The fourth one is just a 5MP Depth sensor.
At the front, there is a dual-camera setup, where the main camera is a 32MP Sony IMX616 sensor, and an 8MP 105-degrees FOV camera as well. All this lies under the display!
Another important point here is that the smartphone also packs an under-screen fingerprint scanner for security. OnePlus has also kept the aesthetics in mind while designing the smartphone. You can see the cut-outs and the cameras, the buttons having the same oval shape around the phone.
