OnePlus recently launched its flagship, OnePlus 8 series of phones, and now the company is gearing up to launch entry and mid-range TVs in India next month. The tech giant is also expected to launch a new affordable smartphone which is tipped to be called the OnePlus Nord.
Ahead of its rumoured launch, we now have started receiving more information about the device, with the latest reports claiming the OnePlus smartphone could come with a quad-camera set-up, instead of a dual-lens one. While the new report doesn't mention the exact camera specifications, it does reveal that the phone could get a 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens with a fourth depth-sensing lens or colour filter lens.
Apart from this, the new report doesn't reveal anything about the device. However, previously a Geekbench listing had revealed key details about the device's specifications. The listing hinted at OnePlus going with the Snapdragon 765G SoC, instead of a MediaTek SoC for the device. This could be paired with OxygenOS 10 operating system based on Android 10.
The display on the phone is tipped to be AMOLED in nature, with a screen size of 6.4-6.5 inches running at a refresh rate of 90 Hz. Under the hood, the phone is expected to be made available two variants, with either 8GB or 12 GB of RAM and storage of 128GB or 256 GB. Keeping the lights on could be a 4000 mAh rechargeable battery with support for fast 30-watt recharge via the USB Type-C port.
Rumoured to be a mid-range device that has already been announced to make landfall in India before anywhere in the world, the OnePlus Nord is tipped to bring some premium features in a package that will flaunt a mid-range Snapdragon chipset.
The product has previously been described by OnePlus' CEO, Pete Lau, as an attempt by the company to go back to its roots and deliver an affordable product offering. While Lau did not reveal the name of the device, he did say that the new affordable device is coming "soon" and that that announcement for India is imminent.
