After launching several flagship killers through the year, OnePlus launched its first mid-range phone since the OnePlus X with the Nord.
As its first mid-range phone, OnePlus made sure to pack the Nord with serious specs starting with a Snapdragon 765G processor that is paired with 8GB/12GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB/256GB UFS 2.1 internal storage. OnePlus also made sure that the Nord came with a good display in the form of a 6.44-inch Full HD+ AMOLED panel with a 90hz refresh rate, a pill-shaped punch hole for the 32-megapixel IMX616 main selfie snapper and 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle snapper, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and HDR10+ support—just like what you expect with your typical OnePlus phone.
As for the cameras, OnePlus touts the Nord’s quad rear camera setup as “flagship-grade”: you get a 48-megapixel IMX 586 main snapper with both OIS and EIS, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, 5-megapixel depth sensor, and 2-megapixel macro camera. On the features side, the Nord can shoot in 21:9 at 4K, along with 240FPS slo-mo at Full HD.
Rounding up the Nord’s spec sheet is a 4115mAh battery with 30w Warp Charge.
The OnePlus Nord starts at INR 25,000(~Php 16.6k). The Nord will be available in Asia and Europe starting August 4.
And since the Nord ditched the headphone jack, OnePlus also launched its first TWS Buds. Available in gray, white, and teal (the latter being exclusive to Europe and India), the OnePlus Buds comes with13.4 mm dynamic drivers with Bass Boost and Dolby Atmos. They also support Google Fast Pair and have customizable tap gestures.
OnePlus claims that the Buds can last for 30 hours with the 430mAh case and also has Warp Charge—a 10-minute charge gives you up to 10 hours of listening time.
The OnePlus Buds will be priced at INR 4,990(~Php 3.3k) and will be available on July 27.
