The OnePlus Nord design has been revealed in an official video by the company’s founder, Carl Pei, and popular YouTuber, MKBHD.
The two chatted over a video call to discuss various topics such as the cost of making a smartphone.
Eventually, around the 13:29 mark in the video, the conversation moves toward Project Nord. Pei explains that OnePlus tried various design prototypes all of which features the square camera bump with triple lenses which we saw earlier. But, these didn’t make the cut.
The company settled on a final design that resembled current OnePlus phones, because it was easily recognizable as their brand’s design. Here is what the OnePlus Nord design looks like, it has a vertical camera bump to house the triple cameras, with the LED Flash module placed outside and to its right.
The phone looks rather elegant in Blue and Gray with a subtle logo in the middle, and a not-so-subtle one near the bottom. The OnePlus Nord design confirms that there is no 3.5mm headphone jack on the phone, not that we were expecting one in the first place.
This is what the OnePlus Nord design looks like from the front, it has a dual punch-hole cut-out in the top left corner for the selfie cameras. The bezels appear to be quite slim, but it’s difficult to tell with the display being switched off.
OnePlus has already confirmed that the Nord will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor. The battery capacity of the device has been confirmed in images shared by OnePlus and JerryRigEverything (Zack Nelson). These are the rumoured specs of the device.
