Level 10
For a second after seeing this post I thought that maybe OnePlus and Nord (the VPN business) had joined up on this release, wondering what was going on, a Chinese company selling a phone with a built in VPN?

Not so though! Even if it is a VPN provider with a somewhat chequered recent history.


Level 32
The front of the OnePlus Nord is dominated by its 6.44-inch 90Hz Fluid AMOLED display with minimal bezels surrounding it. There's also a dual punch-hole at the front that accommodates the dual selfie cameras. The primary 32MP selfie snapper is capable of recording videos in 4K at 60fps.

The Nord will be available in two colors: Gray Onyx and Blue Marble. Thanks to Warp Charge, the OnePlus Nord can charge from 0-70% in just 30 minutes.
The full specs of the OnePlus Nord are as follows:
  • Display: 6.44-inch FHD+ AMOLED display, 90Hz refresh rate, Gorilla Glass 5, In-display fingerprint scanner
  • Chipset: Snapdragon 765G
  • Connectivity: 5G, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, USB-C
  • RAM: 6GB/8GB/12GB LPDDR4
  • Storage: 64GB/128GB/256GB
  • Rear Camera: 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with OIS, 8MP 118-degrees ultra-wide, 5MP macro, 2MP Depth sensor
  • Front camera: 32MP selfie camera, 8MP 105-degree ultra-wide
  • Battery: 4115mAh, Warp Charge 30T
  • OS: Android 10, OxygenOS 10
To keep the price of the Nord in check, OnePlus has had to make a few compromises. There's no IP rating here meaning the phone is not water-resistant. Then, there's no wireless charging as well and the camera setup has been notably toned down as well.

There was a video explaining the No IP rating, it's all about cost and the target market.
