OnePlus Nord 5G Phone Gets Official With 6.44-Inch 90Hz Display, 4110 mAh Battery And Aggressive Pricing
For starters, we now know that the 6.44-inch OLED display has an aspect ratio of 20:9 with a resolution of 2400x1080. The display doesn't have curved edges like the OnePlus 8 in an effort to reduce costs. The 90Hz display also houses a fast fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication.
The Snapdragon 765G processor that is running the show is not as fast as the flagship Snapdragon 865, but it is more power efficient and includes an integrated Snapdragon X52 5G modem (only sub-6GHz 5G is supported, so no mmWave). Base configurations will come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, while an upgraded spec will get you 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
There are four cameras on the back including the 48MP primary sensor (Sony IMX586) from the OnePlus 8 series, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 5MP depth sensor. There are two selfie cameras, including a 32MP primary sensor and an 8MP sensor with a 105-degree FoV. That latter should be great for taking "group selfies".
Other features thrown into the mix include a relatively large 4,115 mAh battery with Warp Charge 30T support. In an effort to hit lower price points, wireless charging isn't included on the Nord.
That brings us to the all-important aspect of pricing for the OnePlus Nord. The 8GB/128GB SKU will launch priced at £379 (around $480), while the 12GB/256GB SKU will cost £469 (just under $600). Those are compelling price points considering that the OnePlus 8 starts at $699 in an 8GB/128GB configuration. Unfortunately, there is no word on pricing (or availability) for the Nord, although we think that the company would be wise to release the device here to take a chunk out of the market share that the second-generation Apple iPhone SE is gobbling up.
