After weeks and months of being teased, the OnePlus Nord aka New Beginning as OnePlus has been marketing it is here. Targeted towards a mid-range segment, the phone is equipped with high-tech specifications coupled with the power of 5G in an affordable upper mid-range device that will leave you spellbound.
The OnePlus Nord that was earlier summoned as the OnePlus Z or Z Lite or 8 Lite (and so on) sports a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset on-board. The processor is equipped with improved CPU and up to 30% faster graphics rendering compared to its predecessor that gives you a reason to play high-graphics games for hours without the phone breaking a sweat. Moreover, the 5G modem mounted on-board lets users switch to a blazing-fast 5G network whenever available. Of course, SDM765G does give an upper hand with its ISP and AI cores for better photography. About the software, OnePlus Nord comes pre-loaded with Android 10-based OxygenOS 10.5 with all features & optimizations you’ll need.
Talking about the display, OnePlus has always stuck on offering the best and OnePlus Nord is no different. It is equipped with a 6.44” Fluid AMOLED panel with a 1080×2400 pixels resolution at 20:9 aspect ratio and a 90Hz refresh rate as promised. The display supports P3 and sRGB mode although HDR is not supported. Overall, the display is super smooth and snappy, unlike its competition. Above all, it has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
The phone has a dual punch-hole camera setup at the front on its top-left corner that has a 32MP primary IMX616 with 0.8micrometer pixels. There’s an 8MP ultrawide sensor with a field of view of 105° that gives you an undistorted and wide-angle selfie or say a groupfie if you want.
OnePlus Nord hails a quad-camera setup placed on the extreme top-left corner of the back panel which includes a 48MP primary sensor with OIS. This is the same sensor you might have used with OnePlus 8 and it can capture photos and videos at 2x zoom. It supports up to 4K videos at 30fps while the front manages to yank it up to [email protected] for excellent selfies no matter what.
The primary sensor is tagged along with an 8MP ultrawide sensor with a 119° field of view for wider photos while the other two sensors i.e. 2MP macro and 5MP depth sensor aid in taking excellent photos at close distance and store depth-related details respectively.
Under the hood, you would find a giant 4,115 mAh battery which makes the device a great choice for those who want their batteries to last longer. It comes with the OnePlus Warp Charge 30T as seen with the OnePlus 8 series capable of juicing up the battery to 70% in just half an hour.
The phone has undergone rigorous testing to make sure it is the best and no doubt it has been dropped, shocked, thrown, and even sandpapered, and even then, it rose up to mark its durability. The phone is available in two color variants i.e. Blue Marble and matte Gray Onyx and both have a PVC coating rear camera rim to prevent the rear sensors from scratching or bruising.
The phone is available in multiple configurations and here is the pricing related to it.
