OnePlus is gearing up for the launch of its OnePlus Nord 5G smartphone on July 21, 2020. So far, we have received a lot of intel surrounding the device’s key specifications and features, including its unofficial renders and a brief first look. Well, as it turns out, the brand does not want us to wait for too long and has now given us an official look at (at least) 2 color variants of its OnePlus Nord. The latest video from MKBHD shows two color variants of the OnePlus Nord that leave little room for guesswork. Take a look at the official look of the OnePlus Nord smartphone and find out what it has in store for us.
This is what the OnePlus Nord looks like
As seen in the image above, the OnePlus Nord will feature a vertically-aligned rear camera setup, which will consist of four cameras. Other than the camera module (which is accompanied by an LED flash), one can see a OnePlus logo in the middle and the OnePlus text at the bottom of the device. The image clearly showcases the bottom of the OnePlus Nord as well. There will be a USB Type-C charging port, which was, well, known already. Plus, the OnePlus Nord will make room for a speaker grille at the bottom. Even with a magnifying glass, we were not able to locate a 3.5mm headphone jack and there is a big possibility that the OnePlus Nord might ditch the jack.
Furthermore, the interview included Carl Pei teasing the upcoming OnePlus Buds TWS and a device, which is claimed to be an early prototype of the OnePlus Nord, as seen in the images below.
Carl further discussed the BOM (bill of materials) costs, which are involved in the production of the device. Notably, the presence of NFC adds just $4 to the BOM, while coming up with a device with an IP rating turns out to be a $15 bill.
OnePlus Nord will feature a 90Hz AMOLED panel. Under the hood, the OnePlus Nord will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor and will be a 5G device. Coming to the cameras of the device, the OnePlus Nord will flaunt a quadruple rear camera setup and a dual punch-hole selfie snapper, located in the top left corner of the device’s display.
