After a lot of rumors and speculation, tech major Amazon has accidentally announced the launch of the much-awaited smartphone, OnePlus Nord, on its website with an image, clearly confirming the launch date to be July 21. Earlier, there had been rumors regarding the launch happening on July 10, but now Amazon India might have confirmed that the launching event will be held in the second last week of July and it will be the world’s first AR Smartphone launch. As always, this smartphone will be sold in India through Amazon.

OnePlus Nord

After the OnePlus One and X, this is the first time the company is all set to enter the affordable smartphone segment with the OnePlus Nord. Due to the pandemic, the company is avoiding physical launch events. Recently, OnePlus 8 series and OnePlus TV Q and Y series were launched via online event but for OnePlus Nord, the company is planning something new.

OnePlus Nord: Expected Specifications

Rumours and official reports from the company itself have painted a near wholesome picture of the OnePlus Nord. The phone is said to come with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. If talk about the front, there will be a dual-selfie camera with a 32MP sensor, whereas the phone’s back has shown what appears to be a triple-camera system.

But this time, the company is going back to its roots, and it is rumored that OnePlus Nord will be priced under Rs 25,000.
