Company launched two gadgets in their entire AR event and that is OnePlus Nord and OnePlus Buds.
OnePlus has kept their tagline which says “Never Settle” as it seems that they didn’t settle on any bit of a feature on the NORD.
“Pretty much everything you need”
The best of android UI which is the oxygen os isn’t a dream anymore people , as OnePlus brought it’s latest budget phone with all the essential features into one phone , the price starting from ₹.24,999 for a 64gb+6gb variant.
The device is 5G ready upto 3.38Gbps of speed, so it’s 5G that’s late to india.
I would like to start with the favourite and important part of the phone , the display. It has got a bigger display of size 16.36 centimeters (6.44 inches) with a resolution 2400×1080 pixels 408ppi. It has the fluid AMOLED display with added 90hz screen refresh rate to add the buttery flow on your screen.
As OnePlus says “Nord’s main camera is stolen” and yes , they have put the same main camera of the OnePlus 8 .
A 48mp Sony IMX586 sensor with both EIS , OIS main camera, 8mp ultra wide angle with a 119° field of view , 5mp depth lens and a 2mp macro lens ( pretty much the all in one quad camera, isn’t it?).

The front camera features a 32mp Sony IMX616 sensor and an 8mp ultra wide angle with 105° field of view. So no compromises on the favorite groupfies anymore.
Face unlock, HDR, Screen flash, Face retouching, Filters, Ultra wide selfie
Additionally , the most required feature is here : front facing 4k recording upto 60fps. That is surely a game changer. So now you will want to take a selfie every time you see your phone.
