The OnePlus Nord is an Android-based smartphone manufactured by OnePlus, unveiled on 21 July 2020. It is the first mid-range smartphone from OnePlus since the 2015 OnePlus X. OnePlus Nord will be available in Europe, India, the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong, and Malaysia, OnePlus Nord will be available on 6 August 2020 in India.
Android Police has suggested that the OnePlus Nord is only launching in countries where cheap smartphones that can be bought outright are more popular than expensive ones that consumers can only afford via monthly payments and carrier subsidies.
There is a beta program in which OnePlus will give 50 people in the United States and Canada an OnePlus Nord for a review. Depending on the circumstances, the reviewers will keep the phone.
OnePlus Nord 5G has been launched in India and is being touted as a part of the company’s “affordable smartphone product line”. The device is available in three distinct configurations, and the company claims to deliver a flagship camera experience. The OnePlus Nord has a hole-punch display design and flaunts quad rear cameras the same as the OnePlus 8.
When purchasing the phone, OnePlus offers three options: 6/64GB, 8/128GB, and 12/256GB. The 6/64GB variant is only available in India and will be available in September. Also, the Blue Marble 12/256GB variant of the phone will be available on 6 August 2020 in India.
The OnePlus Nord phone features a 6.44-inch full-HD+ Fluid AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, 1,080 x 2,400 pixels resolution, and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The phone comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection and supports features including Reading Mode, Night Mode, and Video Enhancer. It measures 158.3×73.3×8.2mm and weighs 184 grams. It is available in two color options, Marble and Gray Onyx.
Battery and Storage
The OnePlus Nord 5G is backed by a 4,115mAh battery with support for Warp Charge 30T fast charging technology. The company claims that the phone can be charged up to 70% in just 30 minutes. OnePlus Nord 5G is available in up to 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage that is non-expandable.
On the storage front, the OnePlus Nord 5G is available in up to 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage that doesn’t support expansion via a microSD card slot. The phone runs on Android 10-based OxygenOS 10.5 OS and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset with up to 12 GB of RAM.
The OnePlus Nord runs on Android 10-based OxygenOS 10.5 OS. It Is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset with up to 12 GB of RAM. It has an octa-core (1×2.4 GHz Kryo 475 Prime & 1×2.2 GHz Kryo 475 Gold & 6×1.8 GHz Kryo 475 Silver) processor and Adreno 620 GPU.
Sensors included in the smartphone are an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, a magnetometer, and a proximity sensor. It comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor for additional security.
OnePlus Nord Camera
OnePlus Nord built up a lot of hype around the camera, but the spec-sheet is simply the same as what you’d expect on a mid-range phone. That includes an OIS-stabilised Sony IMX586 48MP camera, along with an 8MP ultrawide lens, and two 2MP cameras for macro and portrait shots.
Now, on the face of it, there’s nothing extraordinary about the camera system. We see the 48+8+2+2MP stack all the time in the mid-range segment. Oh, and there are two more cameras on the front. OIS is certainly useful, but I fancied a telephoto lens in the mix.

OnePlus Nord Gaming
The Snapdragon 765G is also cut out for gaming, with some of the Snapdragon Elite Gaming features trickling down from the flagship platform. And gaming is something the OnePlus Nord can handle fairly well, in terms of performance. Popular games like PUBG Mobile and COD: Mobile run at 100% stability. And that means, no frame drop.
Call of Duty: Mobile ran the best with everything maxed out. The phone clocked 60 FPS with 100 percent stability and high graphics. I could move around with ease, but aiming and shooting on the small screen took time, especially after using the ROG Phone III as my gaming phone.
OnePlus Nord Review
It’s rare to see a smartphone get the world hooked to it’s one made by a certain Cupertino-based giant. but the OnePlus Nord is certainly an exception. It’s a smartphone that’s cheap and just works.
At Rs 29,999, the beefed-up 12GB RAM variant of the OnePlus Nord we received for review is quite compact for today’s standards, but underneath the glass is a well-oiled machine that’s
tuned to get the job done without distractions.
That’s essentially what this OnePlus device embodies. And for OnePlus Nord loyalists, the entry price of Rs 24,999 in India makes it even more pragmatic.
So we put it through our test process that involved watching episodes while taking a dump, losing three consecutive rounds of Call of Duty: Mobile, and taking the lethal risk of going out of the house to take photos.
