The OnePlus Nord is now official, and the phone delivers a lot of exciting features for under $500. It is powered by a Snapdragon 765G — the first OnePlus phone to not run a Snapdragon 8xx series chipset — and you get a vibrant 90Hz AMOLED panel, 4115mAh battery with 30W wired charging, 48MP quad-camera at the back, and the latest version of OxygenOS based on Android 10 out of the box.
Interestingly, OnePlus is offering 32MP + 8MP dual cameras at the front, with the primary lens joined by a wide-angle module that has a 105-degree field-of-view. You are getting a lot of value here, and that's particularly true when you consider the fact that the Nord has 5G connectivity. Here's a detailed look at the hardware on offer with the OnePlus Nord:
