After launching the OnePlus 8 series previously this year. OnePlus return with the best they do in their yearly years, they were creating a smartphone that is insane fast and user friendly with a low price budget segment that’s why they were called ‘Flagship killer’.
And now they came with their old idea of having a powered packed performance in a sturdy design and in the mid-range segment.
OnePlus Officially announced it OnePlus Nord on 21st of july in the mid-range segment. It starts at a price of Rs. 24,999 for their 6gb+64gb variant and higher variant 12gb+256gb priced for Rs. 29,999. Which is much lower than previously launched Onplus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro priced at Rs. 41,999 and Rs. 54,999 respectively.
OnePlus Nord comes with the 1080p OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate display, it comes with a 30T OnePlus Warp Fast charging, and the 4 rear camera module of 48 mega-pixel as OnePlus 8 and dual selfie camera that can take group selfies. It comes with the slower Snapdragon 765G processor to cut the price but OnePlus claim that they have made software optimization that can boost the speed. It comes with the older UFS 2.0 storage.
OnePlus Nord will be available in Gray Onyx and Blue Marble from 4th of august in India of 8gb and 12gb variant. While the 6gb variant will be available from September.
If we talk about the display of the OnePlus Nord it is quit interesting to see that they manage to provide us a good screen of 1080p OLED screen of 90Hz refresh rate display, the screen is just as good as OnePlus 8 that makes it as premium as its predecessor. Talking about the camera a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. That’s technically one more camera than the OnePlus 8 (which lacked a dedicated depth camera), but the important thing is that the camera you’ll actually use to take your photos has exactly the same 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor. The compromise, meanwhile, comes with the wide-angle camera, which has half the resolution of the OnePlus 8’s. When it comes to the front-facing camera, however, OnePlus is actually breaking new ground with the Nord. Here you’ll find two front-facing cameras, including an 8-megapixel sensor ultrawide camera with a 105-degree field of view, as well as a more traditional 32-megapixel selfie camera.
Talking about the battery and performance OnePlus Nord comes with 4,115 mAh battery that will charge upto 70 percent in 30 minutes. OnePlus Nord the comes with OxygenOS 10.5 based on Android 10 out of the box. It comes in 64gb, 128gb and 256gb storage variant. Talking about the processor in day-to-day use apps open quickly and feel responsive to use, and even spending a brief time in playing Pubg and other various games and it runs smoothly.
So in the end those who are searching for a powerful smartphone with flagship feature in mid-range can go for the OnePlus Nord it is Fast and smooth and work as sane as other OnePlus Phone works. It is going to give a tough competition in the mid-range segment that generally Realme owns.
