OnePlus has been teasing their upcoming affordable smartphone, Nord, for the past several weeks. Although lesser specs on a budget phone would be appropriate, OnePlus Nord is not taking that route, and today some of the premium offerings have been confirmed.
OnePlus confirmed a host of specs for the forthcoming onePlus Nord smartphone in two different posts this week. Which starts with the continued commitment of the company to the pursuit of “smoothness.” This is accomplished first and foremost by the 90Hz display. Like the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 8 series, Nord will be offering the faster refresh rate. In turn, it will also have a higher touch sampling rate on previous versions at 180Hz than the 135Hz.
We have known under the hood that the Snapdragon 765G will be used for some time. Alternatively, up to 12GB of RAM will come with the unit. The RAM allotment for the base model is not yet clear, but I would wager it wouldn’t be a small amount.
OnePlus also listed the camera specs on the OnePlus Nord in its second article. On the back, using the Sony IMX586 sensor, there’ll be a 48MP primary camera. That’s the same one we found in the OnePlus 8 (not the Pro), which we found in our review was a respectable offering.
There’s an ultrawide 8MP and a 5MP depth sensor to back up the primary sensor. OnePlus also says that there is a macro shooter but does not specify the count of megapixels. There’s also a 32MP selfie camera on the front which is backed up by a wide-angle sensor, something we knew already. We know that the secondary shooter is 8MP, too, thanks to a previous report.
OnePlus Nord is expected to be released in full on July 21. However, at the current pace, by then there is literally nothing that we do not know.
