While there was news about the OnePlus Nord, a new approach for the company we still were basing everything on speculations. OnePlus has done an absolutely amazing job at hyping up this product. We knew about the specs for the device through some leaks and then some subtle cues from the company. Now, today, we finally get a look at what the device looks like. In a video posted on their twitter account, the company subtly showcases the new device, not really going at it directly. Ishan Agarwal went on a tweeting spree, jotting down all the things he could list down from the short 17-second video.
#OnePlusNord design has finally been revealed. This is how the phone looks and I'm really liking it!
The image has been uploaded on Amazon India.

First and foremost, we look at the first feature being confirmed which is the Snapdragon 765G 5G SoC inside. The company confirms that as well.
Additionally, we look at the outside of the device and see that it supports a flat display instead of a curved one. Definitely not a bad choice since curved glass is often a hassle, increases price and isn’t that special in 2020. Thus, we saw Samsung, the pioneer ditch it as well.
Two main features out of the entire announcement are perhaps the dual-selfie cameras found on the front. These are probably a main sensor with the depth one. OnePlus knows what its market wants and it is ready to deliver. Finally, we see that the famous alert slider makes its way to the OnePlus Nord as well. This has been one of the most liked and flagship features of all OnePlus devices to date. On the back, we see a simple glass-like panel and a subtle camera module featuring multiple lenses. Perhaps these are the same sensors as those found in previous OnePlus devices as they wouldn’t really fit it with the latest (for cost reasons).
