OnePlus has been using the 48MP Sony IMX586 quad-bayer sensor since the OnePlus 7 series. The OnePlus 8, which was launched this year, also uses the same sensor. OnePlus says it decided to use the same sensor in the Nord due to the "superb hardware" and the fact that its software team has developed a wide range of enhancements for the IMX586, which make it easy to fine-tune the image processing.

The selfie cameras on the OnePlus Nord utilize algorithms that can leverage AI and long exposure tech to reduce noise in low-light environments and brighten up selfies. It can also detect when there are multiple people in a shot and ensure all faces are clear and detailed.

Along with the details on the phone's camera hardware, the company has also confirmed that it will come equipped with a 90Hz AMOLED display and up to 12GB of RAM.
