OnePlus Nord, the much rumoured affordable phone by the company is set to feature dual front-facing cameras, a first for OnePlus. While other smartphone manufacturers have played hard and fast with single and dual selfie cameras, OnePlus has almost always strayed away from using two cameras on the front but all that changes with the affordable OnePlus phone, dubbed Nord.
According to an exclusive report by Android Central, the upcoming OnePlus Nord features dual selfie cameras in 32MP + 8MP arrangement. The 8MP camera uses an ultra-wide camera and the dual camera cutout is located in the top-left corner. The report notes that the cutout on the OnePlus phone is “not as wide” as the one on Huawei’s P40 series.
Dual selfie cameras is a departure for the company that used the same selfie camera on its latest OnePlus 8 series of phones as we saw on the OnePlus 7 and 7T series. It would be interesting to see how OnePlus positions this new change in its product line-up and whether or not it gets carried to the flagship phones in the future as well. The upcoming OnePlus phone has been leaked on the Internet previously as the OnePlus Z and OnePlus 8 Lite and the company itself has been dropping hints about it on a new Instagram account.
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 punch-hole cutout in the centre for the selfie camera.
The phone will reportedly 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 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. Carl Pei even suggested the phone could be priced as much as the original OnePlus One, which launched at around Rs 22,000. We’ll keep an eye out for developments with the OnePlus Nord in the heads up to the official launch that is rumoured to be tentatively scheduled for July 10.
