Here’s how to watch the OnePlus Nord launch

Среда, 22 Июл, 2020

With its Snapdragon 765G processor, in terms of power the OnePlus Nord is a step below the OnePlus 8 range (featuring the Snapdragon 865), but it's not a drop that many users are likely to notice.

"The OnePlus Nord combines a flagship camera along with our signature features such as the 90 Hz Fluid Display, OxygenOS, and Warp Charge 30T to deliver a best-in-class smartphone experience". However, the device will go on sale from August 4, 2020 (the base model will launch in September). The official OnePlus website lists it as "coming soon" though, which is really confusing. No corners cut there, then, quite clearly. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor which renders graphics nearly 30 per cent faster than the predecessor Snapdragon 730G. The 5G chipset comes with up to 12GB of DDR5 RAM. This also takes advantage of the fifth generation Qualcomm AI Engine to improve overall performance. It's the first model from a new line that OnePlus is aiming towards the average users and not the ones hellbent on having the fastest and most powerful Android phone. These include OxygenOS updates, tweaking of visual elements, animation optimisations, changes to multi-tasking menus as well as 2048 brightness levels for smoother changes and more eye comfort. "Nord will be our first product below $500 in recent years.For OnePlus and the whole team, it's a massive challenge", Lau had said in the first episode of the documentary by the company last month. To experience the AR event, you will have to download the Nord AR app from either Google Play Store or Apple App Store. The smartphone will offer Fluid AMOLED display. Both camera modules support Nightscape mode, which uses computational photography to enhance photos captured at night or in low light conditions. Talking about the rear and front camera setup design, we have already seen such designs in multiple smartphones across brands. This has the large f/1.75 aperture and optical image stabilisation. Around the back, we get the same 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor as the OnePlus 8, as well as an 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, and a 5MP depth sensor. For selfies, the smartphone comes with a dual punch hole camera that includes 32 MP main sensor and an 8 MP ultra-wide sensor. OnePlus Buds also support double tap and long press gestures, and thanks to Fast Pair, connecting them to your smartphone will be quick and convenient. The company has been extensively teasing details about the OnePlus Nord smartphone via its social media channels. And that in no way means the screen size is compromised.

Lastly, the OnePlus Nord measures 158.3x73.3x8.2mm and weighs 184 grams.

The OnePlus Nord comes with a starting price tag of Rs 24,999 for the 6GB RAM + 64GB internal storage, Rs 27,999 for the 8GB RAM + 128GB internal storage and Rs 29,999 for the 12GB RAM + 256GB internal storage. The flagship killers, as they were called. It comes with a consistent design language.
