OnePlus Nord is here!! 90Hz display at a cheaper price

OnePlus has launched its first mid-range smartphone after 2015’s OnePlus X which fainted real quick from the market. But at a price range starting from £379 (around $480), the phone looks quite promising with its specs this time.

OnePlus Nord shares a lot of the DNA of the $699 OnePlus 8 released just a few short months ago, which, along with the OnePlus 8 Pro, was the company’s flagship handset for this year. It’s still got a 1080p OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, Sub-6GHz 5G, Warp Charge 30T fast charging, and the same 48-megapixel main camera sensor as the OnePlus 8. But due to a smaller budget they had to compromise on the proocessor. Nord is powered by a slower Snapdragon 765G processor.

On the back of the OnePlus Nord, you’ll find four rear cameras, a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. That’s technically one more camera than the OnePlus 8.

When it comes to the front-facing camera, however, OnePlus is actually breaking new ground with the Nord. Here you’ll find two front-facing cameras, including an 8-megapixel sensor ultrawide camera with a 105-degree field of view, as well as a more traditional 32-megapixel selfie camera.

The Nord will be available in both blue and gray with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage for £379 / €399 (around $480) or with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for £469 / €499 (around $594). It’ll be widely available starting August 4th in Europe, but OnePlus plans to sell some of the handsets early today via its own website and at a John Lewis pop-up on July 31st. It’s only coming to Europe and India for now, although OnePlus says it has plans for a limited beta launch in the US. In India, the prices are set to start from Rs. 24,999.
