The OnePlus Nord is the new affordable smartphone from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer. As it looks to reach more fans by offering a more price-conscious option alongside its flagship tier.
Pre-orders for the OnePlus Nord are currently open, even though the phone hasn’t been formally confirmed, but they’re set to close very soon.
The new OnePlus Nord phone has a lower price tag than the OnePlus 8. Addressing the concern some fans had about the firm’s big price hikes in recent years as it moved away from its mid-range pricing.
The latter has now been officially confirmed as the name for the affordable smartphone.
The OnePlus Nord release date is yet to be confirmed, but it’s close. What we do know, however, is the OnePlus Nord launch date, which is set for July 21.
It will be available in Europe and India first. A select number of users in North America will also get a chance to experience the new device through a highly limited beta program after launch”.
We don’t have any more detail on the North America beta program at the moment, but we’ll update this page as soon as we hear.
What we do know is the OnePlus Nord price. OnePlus has confirmed it will be “below $500” (around £410 / AU$730).
That makes the phone comfortably cheaper than the OnePlus 8, which starts at $699 / £599 (about AU$1,100). Which is good, as OnePlus has been teasing the ‘affordable’ handset for a while now.
We wouldn’t be surprised if “below $500” translates to $499, rather than an even lower price tag. You could always keep your fingers crossed for something
