OnePlus recently announced that the OnePlus Nord will arrive to Europe and India, at least initially. The US was not mentioned as a launch market for the device, so we decided to reach out to the company.
OnePlus was quick to respond. The company’s spokesperson said that the company is used to “focusing on just a few markets first and then expanding”, that has worked well for them in the past.
OnePlus will bring affordable handsets to the US, at some point in the future
She continued by saying that the OnePlus Nord will initially be available in Europe and India, but that the company is looking forward to “bringing more affordable smartphones to North America in the future”.
Now, this could mean that the OnePlus Nord will arrive to the US at some point. On the other hand, it could mean that some other, future budget phone will. One thing is for sure, affordable OnePlus handsets are coming to the US, and Canada as well.
The OnePlus Nord name has been confirmed just recently. The company also confirmed that the phone will be fueled by the Snapdragon 765G, and thus support 5G.
The phone is also expected to offer two front-facing cameras, and rumored to sport four cameras on the back. An in-display fingerprint scanner will probably be included as well.
The device will feature a flat display, and that will probably be a fullHD+ AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate. OnePlus promised not to release any more 60Hz smartphones, so 90Hz is expected.
The phone probably won’t ship with IP certification for water and dust resistance. Wireless charging probably won’t be a part of the package either. Fast charging will, though, probably 30W fast charging.
Android 10 will come pre-installed on this smartphone, along with OnePlus’ OxygenOS. The device will include two SIM card slots, while a 3.5mm headphone jack probably won’t be included. We’re only guessing, though.
A 64-megapixel main camera is rumored for the OnePlus Nord
A 64-megapixel main camera is rumored to be included on this phone. Before that, a 48-megapixel camera has been rumored. So, it remains to be seen what will happen.
OnePlus has been hyping up this smartphone’s arrival for quite some time now. OnePlus even released the first part of its documentary regarding that device, a behind-the-scenes development-type documentary.
On top of everything, we do know that the device will cost less than $500. That is something the company’s CEO confirmed during the aforementioned documentary.
