OnePlus Nord will soon get a special Sandstone variant on Oct. 14, along with the launch of OnePlus 8T. The announcement came as a hint from the official Instagram handle of OnePlus Nord.
OnePlus Nord is now arguably the best mid-range smartphone with 5G compatibility. The company pitched this phone as an entry-level product to the OnePlus ecosystem. OnePlus is now getting ready to introduce its flagship OnePlus 8T on Oct. 14. The company is posting trailers about the phone to fuel speculations, and now, it has announced another product for the launch.
OnePlus Nord: It hit the chord
OnePlus Nord debuted in markets on July 21, 2020. The phone had 6/64, 8/128, and 12/256 GB variants, in Blue Marble and Gray Onyx.
OnePlus Nord is one of the mid-segment players in the market, with an all-rounder quality in specifications. The camera, battery, and refresh rate play a vital role in its positive reception, combined with 5G compatibility.
Critics expressed their concerns for an IP rating for waterproof specifications, a better camera, a mono speaker grille, and long battery life.
Sandstone Black edition
OnePlus Nord’s official Instagram handle posted a cryptic image that seemed to be an impression of Nord’s back panel in the sand. This makes people strongly suspect the arrival of Nord Sandstone special edition in the same event when it launches OnePlus 8T.
OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 had Sandstone black variants, which became popular among its users. These special edition phones were known for their unique and intriguing design element, with a firm grip to use without concerns. Though Sandstone black is not available at present in other models, customers can buy sandstone black cases.
OnePlus’s announcement delighted loyal OnePlus users to see their long-gone variant in a new mobile phone. People expect OnePlus Nord to have a special edition Sandstone black model, after teasers. If it has a sandstone back, then the usual Gorilla glass 5 back cover will not accompany the device.
The special Sandstone black edition will reach markets through an online introduction event on Oct. 14. Fans can watch the virtual event live from 7:30 p.m. IST on the OnePlus website due to COVID concerns. The company may launch its other products in the event, including OnePlus 8T and OnePlus Buds Z.
If a new leak is to be believed, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and N100 phones will debut on October 26 https://t.co/uZwnw2hZKf
