The OnePlus Nord is set to become OnePlus’ first proper mid-range smartphone entry, with tons of top-tier features in the fold.
It’s no secret that OnePlus is gearing up to launch the now-confirmed Nord smartphone on July 21. And as it should be: The phone is the Chinese smartphone manufacturer’s first mid-range device in its portfolio.
As part of its marketing, a slew of leaks and official teasers have emerged from the grapevine, giving us tidbits on how the device will fare. Today, a couple of images of the phone has been leaked again, offering us a much closer look at its design and display features.
AMOLED with pill-shaped display cutout
Leaked by reliable tipster Evan Blass, the OnePlus Nord appears to be packing a display with a pill-shaped cutout. The punch-hole can be seen situated in the top-left section of the front panel. Previous leaks suggested that the cutout is set to house a dual-camera setup, one that could launch with a 32MP wide and an 8MP ultrawide sensors.
OnePlus’ official Instagram account also hinted at the display type the Nord will be launching with. As per the accompanying meme, the handset could boast an AMOLED screen.
With high refresh rate?
A promo page sourced from Amazon India also corroborated somewhat indirectly such a display type. The page revealed that the phone will arrive with a “fluid and vivid” AMOLED screen, with support for a high refresh rate. Although no value was provided, it is tipped to employ a 90Hz configuration.
The page also confirmed the phone’s chipset – Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G SoC.
Quad-cam setup with OIS
The OnePlus Nord is also expected to pack a quadruple-camera setup on its rear. It will be housed in a traditional, vertically placed module in the panel’s upper-left section. The system might feature a 48MP primary camera, with 8MP ultrawide, 5MP macro, and 2MP depth sensors. The setup could also bring Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to the table.
There is also a dual-LED flash next to the module, plus the familiar OnePlus logo inscribed at the center of the back panel.
Other takeaways from the newly-leaked images are the placements of some of the phone’s key buttons. The device’s volume rocker can be seen on the left edge, while the power button is placed on the right side. The alert slider is also placed on this side.
