OnePlus Nord

Looks like oneplus are releasing a new budget-mid range phone details are rather thin so far bar they are holding a weekly comp for 100 invites to pre-order the phone.

Could be very interesting phone if the price is right as would be a direct competitor to the likes of xiaomi, the pixel.

Is the size confirmed? Need to change my S8 but really would like something a similar size - S20 seems to be the only option at the moment

Some specs are it are decent and some a bit of a step backwards like video recording at 30fps

But then again these are only rumours until the device is fully confirmed by OnePlus.

Then again if you get the usual like NFC, 90hz screen rate and so on for less than €300 (according to that website anyway) then that makes it a great choice for a phone.

Just spotted that at the end of the spec! They have a few links about it.

One Plus confirmed it will be under 500 quid. I reckon 450-499 is more realistic. Some alongside the budget iphone se price.

No chance it'll be under 300, my guess is around 450.

Final pre-orders today...anyone pre-order in the 1st or 2nd wave?!

Looks like a decent phone. Wonder if the camera will be any good...

Good interview with Carl by MKBHD yesterday too

Pre ordered there.

My 3T is looking worse for wear, but I can't justify nearly a grand on a new phone. Bit of a gamble, but if it's OnePlus it's going to be a half decent phone.

Do you mind me asking why you've changed your mind? In the market for a new phone myself and considering this.
