OnePlus Nord in the news


OnePlus Nord product details

The OnePlus Nord is an entry OnePlus and is therefore sometimes jokingly called the OnePlus 8 Lite. With the Nord OnePlus returns to its roots; a competitive smartphone for a low price. Of course, this is not without compromise and in this product description we will explain exactly what choices OnePlus has made.

Future-proof choice

The very first phone from OnePlus was an absolute prize fighter. A phone with the best specs for the lowest price. Yet with each generation the price went up. Nowadays the most extensive OnePlus costs 940 euros and that is not really advantageous anymore. This OnePlus Nord puts a stop to that continuous price increase. With a competitive from-price and competitive specifications it will make it much more expensive smartphones quite difficult. The basis is like a house. A 6.44 inch Fluid AMOLED screen, 48+8+5+2MP camera system, Snapdragon 765G with 5G support and a 4115mAh large battery with Warp Charge 30T fast charging. This allows the OnePlus Nord to measure itself at points with much more expensive flagships. Including the fast and therefore smooth 90Hz screen, the same 48MP camera from the more expensive OnePlus 8, a dual selfie cam and support for 5G making it a future-proof choice.

Flagshipworthy camera system

The 48MP camera is known from the OnePlus 8 and is equipped with optical image stabilization. It eliminates unwanted vibrations and ensures sharp and detailed shots without noise. Even in the dark. The 8MP camera is equipped with a 119° ultra-wide-angle lens for group or landscape photography. There is a 5MP depth of field camera and a 2MP macro camera for extreme close-ups. All in all, a very extensive camera system for this amount. At the forefront it is no different. In addition to a 32MP selfie camera, there is an 8MP camera with 105° ultra-wide-angle lens. The latter is useful for group movies. This gives the Nord something that even his more expensive brothers do not have.

Main OnePlus Nord specifications

  • 90Hz 6.44-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution
  • Quad Camera up to 48MP with ultra-wide-angle, depth and macro lens
  • Snapdragon 765G processor gives 5G support and features 8 to 12GB of RAM memory
  • Double selfie camera with wide-angle lens
  • 4115mAh battery with Warp Charge fast charge
  • Double nano SIM card slot

Saving on materials

There are several ways to save costs. You can use the cheese slicer where you save a little at every point or you can trade in expensive components for something cheaper; usually the processor and the camera. OnePlus takes a different approach. They have tried to keep production costs as low as possible, for example by using plastic instead of metal. Yes you read it well. The front and back are made of glass but the frame is made of plastic. Much easier, faster and cheaper to make. Disadvantage is that it is (much) softer. A scratch is made like this and it's also quite bendable. So don't sit on it. A hard cover can be a solution. OnePlus has also saved money on the official IP rating. The device is designed to be water resistant, but it is not officially waterproof. What is also missing is a stereo loudspeaker but these are all things we can do without.
