OnePlus has confirmed that its upcoming phone will be called the OnePlus Nord (and not the OnePlus Z or OnePlus Z Lite). Here’s everything we know about the phone so far.
OnePlus Nord processor
Qualcomm Europe tweeted the following message today and it said, “Excited to be working with OnePlus UK as they embark on New Beginnings powered by a Snapdragon 5G chipset! OnePlusNord”. The tweet has since been deleted, but it is clear what they were talking about.
What is the most affordable Snapdragon processor that supports 5G mobile networks right now? The answer is obviously, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G. Need further confirmation? How about the survey from OnePlus that revealed the OnePlus Nord specs. It said that the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor.
The Nord sports a 6.55-inches Super AMOLED Display with a 90Hz Refresh Rate and an In-Display Fingerprint Scanner. It has a punch-hole design for a 16MP selfie camera. The device will come with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and is backed by a 4300mAh battery that will support 30W Fast Charging. The OnePlus Nord is said to feature triple cameras with a 64MP primary lens, a 16MP wide-angle lens and a 2MP depth sensor.

OnePlus Nord price (expected)
The OnePlus survey hinted that the OnePlus Nord could be priced around Rs. 24,990 (about $330 USD) in India. In a documentary video released on the brand’s Instagram channel, the company’s founder Pete Lau confirms that the OnePlus Nord will be priced below $500.
OnePlus Nord prototype design
And as a bonus, we get to see 2 OnePlus Nord prototypes with different rear camera designs. One of the devices has a pill cutout, aka a dual punch-hole cutout on the front. But the video clearly states that the design wasn’t accepted by the product team, and that they went with a new design. Sadly, we couldn’t spot a 3.5mm headphone jack on the OnePlus Nord.
The OnePlus Nord launch date has not been announced yet, but given all the recent promos and teasers, it will happen soon.
