OnePlus is all set to launch a new phone named OnePlus Nord today I.e July 21, Tuesday. You can watch the launch event live on the official website of OnePlus. Beside, you can also download the OnePlus Nord AR app to experience the event in AR. Speaking about the camera, OnePlus Nord comes with a quad-camera setup that includes a 48 MP Sony IMX586 primary camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5 MP depth shooter, and a 2 MP Marco lens. On the the front, the phone will feature a dual punch holes camera setup up that will include a 32mp main sensor and an 8 MP ultra-wide. OnePlus Nord will have a curvy glass back along with a vertically aligned quad-camera setup that will be on its top right corner. while the alert slider is shifted to the right edge just above the power button.

The OnePlus Nord is a new budget offering from onePlus, which manages to deliver a similar Android experience as the OnePlus 8, but at a more affordable price. OnePlus has kept all the staples such as the AMOLED display. Wrap charge fast charging, and a big battery in the Nord. However, it has made some cute when it's comes to the SoC and the build quality. The OnePlus Nord still has glass on the back, but instead of a metal frame, it's plastic. The SoC used is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, and not an 800-series chip as we're used to seeing. However, the Nord does support 5G, which is a cool bonus. As an overall packege, it's really hard to find fault with the OnePls Nord. App and gaming performance is good, it captures good photos and videos in daylight, and the displaysupports HDR10+.

Every OnePlus smartphone since 2014 OnePlus One has featured a flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series chipset. The user of Qualcomm's latest silicon has been integral to OnePlus' marketing, as is evident from the slogans that OnePlus chose for the OnePlus 6, the OnePlus 6T, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, the OnePlus 7, and the OnePlus 8 from a performance standpoint, OnePlus has never deviated from its 'Never Settle' mantra.

Based on the specs sheet, one might argue that OnePlus is compromising on performance to deliver a lower price, which is something they haven't done in years. Long-time fans of the OnePlus brand, through, will say "finally!" with the OnePlus Nord, OnePlus is returning to its roots with a more affordable smartphone. while the Nord doesn't offer flagship specs, it does offer "flagship killer" specs at a "flagship killer" price. OnePlus has Settled, and I'm okay with that. here's my review of the new OnePlus Nord that explains why.

it is the cheapest 5G smartphone currently available

5G is the next big thing in terms of networks connectivity. It provides users with more than double the data speeds that 4G offers. India is getting ready to launch 5G networks, with a tentative launch of 2021. Reliance Jio has already announced that as soon as it is able to get the hands during the auction, it will enable the network in India. Similar is expected from Airtel and Vodafone. At Rs 24,999, it is the cheapest 5G smartphone you can currently get in India. The next 5G phone available in India is the Realme X50 Pro with a starting price of Rs 39,999, comparatively much more expensive than the Nord.



The Nord has a premium feel and touch and the unique Teal colour is a head-turner. It is an all-glass device with Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the front and back. But the frame is made of plastic. it is highly recommended to get a hard case to protect the phone. The display is very similar to the OnePlus 8 and there are no compromise on this front. The OnePlus Nord features a 6.44-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate. It is a delight to watch movies or stream content on the device. There is a 48 MP Sony IMX586 main sensor along with three secondary sensors of 8 MP, 2 MP and 5 MP.
