Android version and market relevance

New smartphone from the company OnePlus got the name OnePlus Nord and was announced in July 2020 (see all new smartphones 2020). This model is released in the series of smartphones OnePlus Nord.

Smartphone OnePlus Nord works out of the box under the operating system Android version 10. Not every android smartphone boasts that it can be updated to a newer version, but in our case the model OnePlus Nord updated to Android version 12 (look in the catalog all smartphones on Android 12).

In addition the OnePlus Nord — is a smartphone for 2 SIM cards, which is ideal if you use the services of several mobile operators. And this model also supports 5G networks, which means that the speed of receiving data with this smartphone can reach up to 100 Mb/s. Soon, each smartphone will work in the networks of the fifth-generation (5G). Therefore, in our catalog on a separate page, you will find all 5G smartphones from popular manufacturers of Android devices.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor OnePlus Nord. The body is quite compact and the screen occupies almost all of its area from edge to edge (from 80% to 90% of the area of the case). There is a cutout above the screen to take up even more space on the front of the case. As you have seen in the photo, here is a cutout in the form of a small hole for a selfie camera. On the front side of the case is located huge Fluid AMOLED-screen with diagonal 6.44″ and with refresh rate 90 Hz. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 4 115 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone OnePlus Nord has two cameras: main camera (48 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Depth sensor + 2 MP Macro) and front-camera (32 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide). If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then these are very good photos with high quality and detail. Look at the example of photos and videos taken on this smartphone.

In addition, the main camera has a feature, namely additional modules. It is better to judge about the advantages and disadvantages of several lenses in one smartphone, as well as about the possibilities of software image enhancement, by real photos and videos taken with such a camera. Therefore, be sure to look at all the photos of the OnePlus Nord on this page in order to draw your conclusion on whether this is a good camera or not.

In this smartphone, the front camera is located as usual at the top of the screen, like in 99.9% of other models. We have collected smartphones with pop-up front camera in the catalog that may seem much more interesting to you. In these models, there are practically no frames around the screen, because the front camera is located inside the case and does not take up space above the screen. The selfie camera only pops up when you activate the front camera mode. Take a photo or video, exit the Camera application. And after that, the socket with the front camera drives into the body. Real engineering magic!

Processor and Internal Memory

The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. OnePlus Nord has 8-core Snapdragon 765G . You can select the RAM 6 GB or version 12 GB.

Available versions OnePlus Nord with different amount of built-in memory: 64/128/256 GB. Note that the more memory, the more expensive the smartphone.

Price for OnePlus Nord: buy or not to buy?

So this is OnePlus Nord after the official announcement. This new product hit the segment just above the average price of smartphones.

Buy OnePlus Nord you can after the beginning of official sales, which start in  August 2020. And now the price from the manufacturer is known — it′s $370 without taxes and fees. The price-to-feature ratio of this smartphone is not bad, because there is is just a huge screen, and the camera is sooooo cool, and the frontcamera is also very cool.

If you are looking for a good current smartphone, which is now on sale, then visit the page DROID smartphones in our catalog. There we select only the best models from different price segments. You will have plenty to choose from!
