OnePlus Nord Launched with Snapdragon 765G SoC, Six Cameras: Specs and Price

After five years, OnePlus has finally unveiled its first mid-range phone in five years. OnePlus Nord was unveiled at a first-of-its-kind AR launch event. It will first be made available in India and Europe instead of the US. The device comes with a 90Hz AMOLED display, 5G-enabled Snapdragon 765G chipset, dual-selfie camera, and fast-charging support at a really attractive price.

OnePlus Nord Specs and Feature

OnePlus Nord: Design and Display

The OnePlus Nord looks like a rebadged Realme phone. That’s exactly how some people feel. It looks exactly like the Realme X3. You have the dual-cam punch-hole at the top left on the front and a vertical quad-camera array on the rear. The biggest differentiator is the placement of the fingerprint sensor. It is available on the right edge and doubles as the power button on Realme X3. Whereas OnePlus Nord has an in-display fingerprint sensor. The alert slider is present on the right.

At the front, OnePlus Nord is built around a 6.44-inch Full-HD+ Fluid AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch response rate. The panel boasts a 20:9 aspect ratio, 2400 x 1080 pixels resolution, sRGB support, and Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top.

As per the camera department The OnePlus Nord arrives with a primary 32MP Sony IMX616 sensor and a secondary 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 105-degree FOV in the punch-hole. This is exactly the same dual selfie camera system as the Realme X3 SuperZoom that launched in India last month.

OnePlus Nord is the first smartphone with a dual selfie camera from the company.

Snapdragon 765G + 5G Support

OnePlus Nord arrives with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chipset. It is a 5G-enabled chipset that launched alongside the Snapdragon 865, which powers the OnePlus 8 flagship series. Snapdragon 765G integrates the Snapdragon X52 modem, offering download speeds up to 3.38Gbps on a 5G network.

The chipset is coupled with up to 12GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 256GB of built-in storage. And this is where OnePlus has cut some corners. You don’t get faster UFS 3.0 storage here. The Nord instead comes with UFS 2.1 storage in tow, which is a little disappointing.

Android 10 With OxygenOS 10.5

OnePlus phones are popular for the fluid software experience the offers. The bring the best of both worlds — vanilla Android and useful add-on features to users via OxygenOS. OnePlus Nord runs OxygenOS 10.5 based on Android 10 out-of-the-box.

However, OnePlus decided to ditch its own phone and messages app in favor of Google’s stock alternatives. You also get Google Duo pre-installed on the Nord. It will be eligible for two years of software updates (up to Android 12) and three years of security updates, as per the company’s claims.

Photography

The camera count matter in the more affordable price segment. OnePlus Nord launches with a quad-camera array on the rear. You will get the exact same 48MP (f/1.75) Sony IMX586 sensor that you will find aboard the flagship OnePlus 8. It will come as a relief to many that the primary camera supports OIS, as well as EIS, to help improve video stability. Your Nightscape pictures will also see an improvement, thanks to this valuable addition on this mid-ranger.

The primary sensor is paired with an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 119-degree FOV, a 5MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. The latter seems to have only been added to bump up the camera count. Macro cameras can be fun but we have already seen that the 2MP macro camera aboard the OnePlus 8 is not the best-performing in the market. There’s a dual-LED flash sitting next to the vertical array.

As for the camera features, OnePlus Nord can capture videos up to 4K @ 30FPS, Super Slow-motion videos at up to 1080p @ 240FPS, Pro mode, RAW image capture, portrait (or bokeh) mode, and a lot more.

Battery & Warp Charging

The presence of a high refresh rate display and 5G support makes battery an important factor for the users. OnePlus Nord comes equipped with a modest 4,115mAh battery pack, paired with Warp Charge 30T fast-charging support onboard.

This is slightly smaller than the battery aboard the OnePlus 8. The 30W charging speed remains the same though. The company claims that you can charge the phone from 0% to 70% in around 30 minutes. It is, of course, juiced up via the USB Type-C port at the bottom.
