OnePlus Nord: Its all about that selfie cam
Published : 28 Jul, 2020
  •  The Nord sports a large 6.44-inch Fluid AMOLED 2400 x 1080 display (408 ppi) on front
  • The screen has a 20:9 aspect ratio and also features a 90Hz refresh rate and can switch that down to 60Hz to preserve battery life
  • Along with a Face Unlock, the Nord also incorporates an in-display fingerprint sensor for an extra layer of security
  • The right side of the device is home to a power button that can be set to trigger Google Assistant with a long press
  • Slider underneath it which allows you to switch between ring, vibrate, or silent modes
  • The volume rocker sits on the left side, while at the phone’s base, you’ll find a dual nano-SIM card slot, speaker, and USB-C port.
  • Nord has a quad-camera setup on the back that includes a 48-megapixel sensor (f/1.75 aperture) to accompany the main sensor is a 119-degree 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens (f/2.25), a 2-megapixel macro lens (f/2.4), and a 5-megapixel depth sensor (f/2.4)
  • On its face, the Nord features two selfie-friendly camera sensors
  • There’s a 32-megapixel main sensor (f/2.45) and a 105-degree 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens (f/2.45)
  • You can also use the rear camera to record video in 4K at up to 60 fps.
  • Nord also supports Nightscape mode for photos taken in lowlight a feature essentially takes the best nine photos shot at different exposures to produce one brighter image
  • Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chipset that supports 5G
  • Nord has a 4,115mAh battery that can be charged using the included OnePlus Warp Charge 30T power adapter and Warp Type C-cable. According to OnePlus, this can charge your device up to 70 percent in only 30 minutes
  • The 6.44-inch display is perfect for my small hands, too, allowing to scroll and type comfortably with one hand
  • At 6.5 ounces, it’s also lightweight


OnePlus is clearly taking a new route here, straying from its standard marketing techniques that include glossy photos and aesthetically pleasing promotional clips in an attempt to attract and relate to the younger crowd — specifically, Gen Z.

The company officially unveiled the OnePlus Nord via an event that was held mainly through augmented reality, due to the prevailing pandemic situation.

Unfortunately, the OnePlus Nord will be available in Europe and India when it releases internationally on August 4.

The device is rumored to be priced under $500. Even though it’s technically considered a budget phone, the device packs some fairly high-end specs compared to similarly priced ones.
