One of the worst kept secrets in the Android space is the OnePlus Nord. It seems like there has been another leak about this phone every day.
Perhaps sick of the speculation (and because we’re getting close to the release date), OnePlus has finally taken to its community forums to confirm some of the specs of the OnePlus Nord. Quite simply, these are some incredibly solid specs for a phone with such a low price tag.
Confirmed OnePlus Nord Specs
The first thing the company confirmed about the OnePlus Nord is that it will boast a 90Hz display. The company used this same refresh rate on the far more expensive OnePlus 7 Pro last year, and it should make using the OnePlus Nord a fast and smooth experience.
To go along with that fast refresh rate, the company confirmed that the device features a 180Hz sampling rate, which is vital for playing mobile games on your phone (and not a feature you typically see on a mid-range phone).
Also announced for the OnePlus Nord is 12GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 765G processor. That’s a lot of horsepower for a phone with a confirmed price tag of under $500. It’s important to note that the company hasn’t confirmed whether the base model will come with 12GB of RAM or if that will be a higher-price variant of the phone.
In another post by a OnePlus rep, we also learned about the camera for the device. The Nord will come with a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor as its primary lens, an 8MP wide-angle camera, a macro camera, and a 5MP depth sensor. OnePlus is using the company’s first dual-selfie setup. The OnePlus Nord will also boast a 32MP selfie camera with an ultra-wide-angle camera.
OnePlus Nord Release Date
OnePlus is slated to release the OnePlus Nord on July 21 with a retail price “below $500.” Of course, below $500 could mean $499.99, or it could mean $400 (it’s probably the former).
Either way, based on the information we have so far, the Nord looks like a phone that could easily sell for more, and we’re excited to get our hands on one to see how it stacks up against other budget smartphones .
