OnePlus Nord India launch today

The OnePlus Nord price and release date have finally been announced, and the affordable handset will be even cheaper than initially expected. The Nord is targetted to consumers who are looking for a phone that is affordable but doesn't compromise on offerings. The phone's primary sensor seems similar to the one found in the OnePlus 8 (review). It comes in grey, white, and Nord blue colour option. It also doesn't compromise on the design. However, the screen's bezels are minimal and just about the same size as in premium OnePlus smartphones. This could be to lower the pricing which is the key idea behind introducing the Nord series.

A Romanian retailer EvoMag has listed the 8GB + 128GB variant of the OnePlus Nord at a price of RON 2,232 ( ₹39,414 approximately). You get the smartphone, its TPU cover, a SIM tray ejection pin, some reading material and stickers, and a OnePlus 30T Warp Charger with the standard red cable that comes with every OnePlus smartphone.

The OnePlus Buds carries a retail price of $80 and the White variant will go on sale on July 27.

Lastly, the OnePlus Nord measures 158.3x73.3x8.2mm and weighs 184 grams. The company will be holding a unique AR (Augmented Reality) launch event that can be viewed through an app. OnePlus Nord specifications and design have been more or less revealed by the company already and we will find out its price in India today.

For selfies, the OnePlus Nord features a dual front camera setup comprising a 32-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera.

Claimed to be the world's first AR smartphone, the OnePlus Nord runs on Android 10-based OxygenOS 10 and comes with 6.44-inch AMOLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate along with octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, 5G processor. It is packed with secondary 8MP ultra-wide sensor, third is a 2MP macro lens and 5MP depth sensor.

As far as the cameras go, this leads the quad camera setup at the back with the same 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor that also does the photography duties in the OnePlus 8. That's paired with either 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, or 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. The phone will be available only in the European market and in India.

So in case you're wondering how OnePlus Nord stacks up against its sibling, the OnePlus 8, here's a comparison between the two smartphones' prices and specifications. There are two colour options to choose from, namely Blue Marble and Gray Onyx.
