- OnePlus Nord teaser video gives us a first look at the upcoming mid-range phone.

- The back has a camera housing similar to the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, but the orientation is to the left.
OnePlus is steadily teasing more and more details of the OnePlus Nord, and the company has posted a teaser video to its Instagram page showcasing the upcoming phone. The teaser gives us a first look at the design and a few hardware features, like the positioning of the cameras and the layout of the buttons. The folks at Android Authority also got a high-res version photo of the device in question (pictured above).
The design itself looks similar to that of the OnePlus 8 series, but the highlight at the front is the wide cutout that houses dual 32MP and 8MP cameras — as we revealed exclusively. The cutout sits to the left side, and we also get a look at the rear camera housing, which once again is similar to the OnePlus 8 series. The key difference here is that the housing is located to the left corner, whereas the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro have a centered camera housing at the back.
Other details include the power button on the right just below the alert slider, and the volume rocker to the left. We also get a glimpse of the color, and the grey option is likely the "safe" option this time around, with the phone also slated to come in a teal color variant. The OnePlus Nord is set to make its debut in the coming weeks, and we'll hear more about the device shortly.
