OnePlus is one of those rare brands that launch only a couple of flagship models in a year. In some sense, it acts like Apple. But it’s very difficult to compete with others who have a wider range of products. That’s why the company has revised its strategy and decided not only to design other products like TVs, TWS headphones, etc., but also to come in with a mid-range smartphone. Not that long ago, the OnePlus Nord moniker was registered hinting the company will bring a new handset soon. And today, we learned about one of its key features. Today, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei confirmed that the upcoming mid-range phone OnePlus Nord will be equipped with a ‘flagship camera’.
Carl Pei claims that the camera is probably the most used feature of smartphones. So he admitted that the company must come up with an excellent camera system to make this phone perfect.
Of course, Carl Pei did not disclose the specific camera configuration. But it is rumored that the OnePlus Nord will sport a 64-megapixel main camera sensor. The OnePlus executive said that OnePlus Nord will bring flagship cameras to mid-range phones.
In this interview, Carl Pei also stated that the OnePlus Nord ‘has three major selling points’: the first is the camera; the second is the user experience; the third is the OnePlus quality. The company hopes to achieve the best condition on these three points.
The OnePlus CEO admits that software optimization is as important as hardware. He said that it is also quite important to know how to optimize software and animation because it is necessary to ensure that everything ‘really flows seamlessly’. He also said that the OnePlus Nord must do a good job in design. And the company hopes to create a phone that looks and feels like a flagship phone.
The phone will be officially launched sometime this month, and the company has yet to confirm the specific date.
The OnePlus Nord may be made of metal and glass. On the front, it should have a dual-hole-punch screen. But on the back, we will find a quad-camera setup. It may also support off-screen fingerprints and fast wired charging, while wireless charging may not stand by.
