A peek towards OnePlus Nord specifications
The new offering from the company supports 5G Mobile Platform that can deliver download speeds up to 3.38 Gbps. The OnePlus Nord is slated to be revealed on July 21, in what is touted as the world’s first “AR-launch” of a smartphone. To accompany the launch, OnePlus released an AR app that should let you visualize and possibly interact with the Nord in augmented reality.
The new Nord comes with four rear cameras. However, it is also the first OnePlus phone to come with two front cameras. This camera system goes far beyond megapixels. In a post on the OnePlus forums, Simon Liu, Imaging Director at OnePlus, revealed the camera setup would be a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor, paired with an 8MP ultra-wide lens and a 5MP depth sensor as well as a macro sensor. The main selfie camera would be a 32MP unit coupled with an ultra-wide-angle lens.
The main feature of this phone is not only the camera but also the chipset which allows smooth gaming experience and other multitasking performance. The chipset will allow smooth performance for everyone using the device without any lags and you can experience stutter-free gaming.
