OnePlus Nord could finally launch on July 21 in India as has been accidentally revealed by Amazon. The popular online shopping platform accidentally went live with the OnePlus Nord launch invite with an image that confirms the launch date to be July 21. The listing was first spotted by TechRadar India and also had an outbound link to the OnePlus website with “Nord AR” mentioned in the URL which is likely the QR code generator required to join the event. All the listing and the launch invite link have since been taken down but screenshots (1,2) are readily available online.
The launch of the upcoming OnePlus Nord is being pegged as the “world’s first AR smartphone launch” event and the company has been slowly building up the hype train in the heads up to the launch. It’s currently unclear as to how OnePlus will pull-off its AR launch event as it requires a stable connection to stream properly. Then again, OnePlus is fairly acquainted with challenges of launching a phone as it did in the past with the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus 3 VR launch events.
The images from the Amazon listing have made it online to Twitter after the former took down the page. OnePlus has also revealed the new product packaging for the upcoming affordable smartphone which is a departure from the company’s signature red boxes. This time around, the box is black in colour with teal accents in the middle. OnePlus claims that the box is “incredibly sturdy”.
OnePlus Nord is rumoured to feature a 6.55-inch Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) AMOLED screen with a 90Hz high-refresh-rate. The leaks have indicated that the phone could have a dual punch-hole cutout in the corner for the selfie camera.
The phone is confirmed to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset with an octa-core processor and Adreno 620 GPU. This is paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage and there could be more variants as well.
The OnePlus Nord could come with a triple camera setup on the back that consists of a primary 64MP camera, a 16MP ultra-wide-camera and a 2MP macro lens. On the front, there is a 32MP primary camera supported by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera for selfies.
It is rumoured to be fitted with a 4,300mAh battery with support for 30W fast charging out-of-the-box. As per some rumours, the phone could be priced as much as the original OnePlus One, which launched at around Rs 22,000.
OnePlus is scheduled to release the second episode of its documentary on the making of OnePlus Nord on July 7 at 5:30 PM IST where it is expected to reveal more details about the launch.
