According to the slide, OnePlus’ first Nord cellphone will characteristic a Snapdragon 765G processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of inner storage to begin. It seems like OnePlus will even provide the choice to configure the cellphone with extra RAM and storage. Most of the stories revealed earlier than this slide got here out stated the OnePlus Nord would characteristic 6GB of RAM and 128GB of inner storage. So the actual fact it could now embrace as a lot RAM because the OnePlus 8 Pro appears virtually too good to be true. OnePlus has finished unusual issues up to now, however 8GB of RAM to begin doesn’t appear reasonable for a cellphone co-founder Pete Lau stated would price lower than $500.
The three fashions listed on the slide — Blue Marble, Gray Onyx, and Gray Ash — neatly correspond with the colours OnePlus has teased up to now. However, in case you’ve been following the Nord rumor mill intently, you’ll discover there’s no point out of a teal hue. The colour has been an enormous a part of the OnePlus’ Nord advertising and marketing push, so its absence might imply a wide range of issues. One risk is that the corporate could launch a teal-colored mannequin later prefer it did the Almond variant of the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Moving to the digital camera part of the slide, there aren’t many surprises to be discovered. We already knew from two separate stories the OnePlus Nord would characteristic 4 rear-facing cameras and two front-facing cameras. What’s new listed below are all of the lens apertures for the cellphone’s varied cameras. For essentially the most half, they appear like normal fare. However, one fascinating tidbit is the f/1.75 lens the slide says comes connected to the first 48MP sensor.
If the slide is correct, then the lens is barely quicker than the f/1.Eight glass the OnePlus 8 Pro options in entrance of its main digital camera. On the topic of sensors, the Sony IMX 586 listed on the slide made its approach into varied telephones final 12 months, together with the OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T. When we reviewed the 7T earlier this 12 months, we discovered the IMX 586 produced pleasing pictures with the correct quantity of sharpening, saturation, and distinction.
Maybe essentially the most stunning a part of the slide is the battery listed as having a 4,115mAh capability. We’ve been anticipating the Nord to ship with an influence provide within the 4,300mAh vary. The truth the cellphone will characteristic a 5G modem constructed into its processor and is probably going to assist with battery life, however we’ll must see the way it performs in day-to-day use.
With OnePlus set to element the Nord on July 21, we received’t have to attend for much longer to see the official spec sheet. Until then, keep watch over our rumor roundup for all the newest data on the upcoming cellphone.
