OnePlus entered a new market segment with its Nord series of devices last year. The series brought with itself the original Nord and the more affordable Nord N10 and N100 smartphones. Now, reports suggest the company could add to the list this year by launching a new phone, the OnePlus Nord N1 5G. The phone has been tipped for launch by reliable tipster Max Jambor.
The upcoming smartphone is interestingly being tipped to launch later this year as a successor to the OnePlus Nord N10 5G that went official in Europe and the US. While the report does not reveal any information about the specifications of the device, it does add that it could launch after the OnePlus 9, 9 Pro, and 9E smartphones. As such, the tipster also suggests that we might have to wait a while for the launch of the OnePlus N1 5G. However, considering that the OnePlus Nord N10 5G was launched in October 2020, it can be expected that the OnePlus N1 5G also follows a similar launch timeline this year.
Even as we wait for the launch of OnePlus Nord N1 5G, the company is first scheduled to launch the OnePlus 9 series in India in mid-March. For now, the expectation is the OnePlus 9 series will bring with itself the OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro and another OnePlus 9 Lite model. The first two are tipped to be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, while the latter could be powered by the Snapdragon 870 SoC.
Of the three, the flagships are the most interesting. The latest round of leaks reveals the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro will come with a 3.8mm punch-hole positioned at their upper-left corner with the former getting a 6.55-inch flat panel capable of Full HD resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The Pro model is expected to be equipped with a of 6.78-inches curved edge display which will offer a Quad HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate.
As per reports, OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro will weigh less than 200 grams with the OnePlus 9 tipped to sport a slim profile of 8mm, while the Pro variant could come measuring 8.5mm in thickness.
Previously, we've seen reports about the OnePlus 9's camera module which is being said to be heroed by a 50-megapixel lens. As per a report on SlashLeaks, the phone will feature a three-camera system, the mainstay of which will be a 50-megapixel Ultra Vision wide-angle camera with f/1.9 aperture. The leak also reveals that this lens will be coupled with a 20-megapixel Cine Camera, an ultrawide lens with f/1.8 aperture. As for the third lens in the setup, there will be an OIS assisted 12-megapixel telephoto camera with autofocus and an f/3.4 aperture.
Reports also say that the phone maker is set to partner with Leica for the OnePlus 9 series. As per a well-known tipster, Teme(@RODENT950) multiple phone makers are partnering with Leica to bring their cameras on their phones, and apparently, one of them is the OnePlus.
