    Agencies
    Leaked details show that OnePlus Nord will come in 2 storage variants - 8GB RAM + 128GB and 12GB RAM + 256GB.
    NEW DELHI: OnePlus is not bogged down by the Covid-19 lockdown or the anti-China sentiments that have been triggered lately in the global podium including India which saw border skirmishes and subsequent deaths in Galwan of Ladakh. Undeterred by the Indian government banning 59 Chinese apps, and US President Donald Trump threatening to ban TikTok, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is now all set to amaze the world with a first-of-its-kind AR smartphone launch, globally. This time, the device in focus will be its first smartphone in the affordable segment, OnePlus Nord.

    All eyes on the much-awaited OnePlus
    Soon after the announcement, tech experts and OnePlus fans started digging for fresh details about the much-awaited budget device. In the trailers launched by the tech company, the glimpse of the device was seen at several points.

    A week-and-a-half before the launch, a Romanian e-tailer, evoMAG.ro, had mentioned specifications of the device on its website. While not everything mentioned in the listing must be believed, it sure has left many fans excited.

    According to the listing, the Nord will come with a triple camera set-up on the back that will consist of 64MP primary sensor, a 16MP secondary sensor and a 2MP tertiary sensor. However, other reports suggest that the budget phone was expected to have a quad rear camera set-up - 48MP primary sensor, 8MP wide angle lens, 5MP macro lens and 2MP depth sensor.

    The smartphone is likely to come with a punch-hole selfie camera.

    The Nord is likely to be powered by Qualcomm SDM765 Snapdragon 765G Octa-Core procesor, and sport a Super AMOLED 6.55-inch screen. The listing says the device will support 5G and have a 4300 mAh battery.


    The 8GB RAM + 128GB-variant came at a price tag of Romanian Leu 2,230.99 (approximately Rs 40,000), and 12GB RAM + 256GB at Romanian Leu 2,755.99 (approximately Rs 48,000).

    About the AR event
    The online event, scheduled for July 21, can be experienced through the OnePlus Nord AR App available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, according to a company statement.

    The smartphone maker has sent out physical AR invitation, which will give users a unique hands-on experience of the product via AR, straight from their homes. Pre-order customers who complete the purchase of the device by August 31 will receive a second gift box containing OnePlus Bullets Wireless V1 and a phone cover.

    Let's opt for Samsung or Nokia or Apple. If they don't have the same specs as these Chinese brands, let's wait for it. It's a fast developing market.
