a price below $ 500, cameras that defy overpriced models July 15, 2020 – Posted in: Smartphone news


OnePlus has made a name for itself in the smartphone market by selling affordable smartphones, but the performance is impressive. But OnePlus devices are gradually being lifted. The brand’s latest models, OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, are comparable to smartphones such as the Galaxy S20 or the Mi 10 from Xiaomi. The prices are also higher.

The problem is that many OnePlus fans wanted branded products that were cheaper. For this reason, the Chinese brand has decided to launch a new range of affordable devices, but without compromise. The first model in this series is the OnePlus Nord, the name of which was recently published by the company.

Until the official presentation of OnePlus Nord in July, OnePlus continues to tease this device. And recently Carl Pei, one of the co-founders of OnePlus, revealed new details in an interview with TechRadar.

Flagship killer

First of all, the TechRadar article tells us that OnePlus does not neglect the camera with this model. After all, this is one of the most important criteria today. In addition, OnePlus will offer a range of cameras on OnePlus North that are comparable to those of the “flagship” models and can cost twice as much.

The interview also confirms rumors about the processor. OnePlus Nord will be well equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 G SoC. If this processor does not have the same performance as the Snapdragon 865 used by the OnePlus 8, it is a cheaper alternative that still allows very good performance. With this processor, OnePlus can also offer 5G models.

The head of OnePlus also mentioned the design. And if it didn’t go into detail, it still ensured that the OnePlus Nord would be of the same quality and subject to the same controls as the models that cost more.

Many details about OnePlus Nord are not yet known. However, we can already be sure that this model will be one of the main competitors of the iPhone SE 2020, which in turn has a very modest camera. In contrast, this mid-range iPhone uses the same high-end processor as the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. And that could, according to Apple, appeal to many Android users.
