OnePlus Nord: All You Need To Know
Packed with eye-catching specs, OnePlus Nord is truly a flagship killer. The mid-budget smartphone has won a lot of praise from both fans and experts for checking most of the essential boxes. If the device has caught your attention as well, you would be keen to know everything about OnePlus Nord and whether or not it deserves your bucks
Design and display
OnePlus Nord sports a modern-looking design. The smartphone has a striking similarity with the OnePlus 8 Series, with one exception. The rear camera module is placed towards the left edge, unlike OnePlus 8 Series which features a camera module in the middle.
As for the display, it has a 6.44-inch Fluid AMOLED display with 20:9 aspect ratio. With the full HD+ (2400 x 1080) resolution, the screen looks pleasing. The display features a wide punch-hole at the top-left corner.
For additional safeguard against impact, the mid-range smartphone comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 coating. Add to that the 90Hz refresh rate and the smartphone seem to be very hard to beat, especially when compared with rivals like Moto G 5G Plus (Rs 29,500).
Weighing 184 grams, Nord (158.3×73.3×8.2mm) is slightly heavier than OnePlus 8 (160.20×72.90x8mm) that weighs 180 grams. In terms of colors, it is available in blue marble and gray onyx.
Pretty good Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G Processor
Unlike the OnePlus 8 Series that’s powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor, the OnePlus Nord includes 2.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, which is a mid-range ARM-based SoC. The dual SIM mid-range smartphone runs Android 10-based OxygenOS 10.5 out-of-the-box.
On the connectivity front, OnePlus Nord comes with 5G, Bluetooth v5.1, NFC and USB Type-C port. Pretty much on the expected lines, the smartphone features an in-display fingerprint sensor and dual-band Wi-Fi.
Fairly Impressive Cameras
Considering how big a role camera plays in making a smartphone hit among selfie lovers or social media buffs, OnePlus has ensured the device scores quite well in the camera department as well.
The smartphone boasts an impressive quad-camera setup on the rear which consists of 48-megapixel Sony IMX 586 sensor along with f/1.75 lens, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) support. That aside, it also has 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, 5-megapixel macro lens, and 2-megapixel depth sensor in tow.
For selfies, OnePlus flaunts a dual front camera setup that consists of a 32-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. Additionally, the front cameras have also got the support for 4K video recording at up to 60fps, which could be a big deal for those who like to snap fascinating selfie videos.
Battery and Fast Charging
With a solid 4,115mAh battery, OnePlus Nord can comfortably last a whole day. Supporting Warp Charge 30T fast charging solution, it is touted to attain 70 percent battery charge in just half an hour.
Though it doesn’t support wireless charging, we don’t think it would be a deal-breaker for many.
