OnePlus has already revealed after much anticipation that "Nord" is the name given to a completely new series that will be the house of new affordable phones. But, what does Nord actually mean and why did OnePlus choose this name only? Well, OnePlus has answered it finally.
Some people have been asking what the Nord name means. It comes from the concept of true north. We each have this inner compass that guides us. This product line reminds us to always search for our true north, and we hope it will keep reminding you of yours.— Carl Pei (@getpeid) July 1, 2020
Carl Pei, co-founder at OnePlus took to Twitter to tell why the company went with this name. Pei tells the name “Nord” comes from the concept of true north. He refers to an excerpt from a book called " Discover Your True North" by Bill George that says “true north is the internal compass that guides you successfully through life.” Pei further says that the new product line “reminds us to always search for our true north, and we hope it will keep reminding you of yours.”
OnePlus Nord is gaining much attention and by now, we believe, every one of us knows that Nord will bring a new series of affordable phones that we always wanted to have from OnePlus. Pete Lay, Founder, and CEO at OnePlus recently confirmed that the first affordable OnePlus phone will cost below $500.
The phone went up for pre-orders on July 1 but OnePlus made only a tiny amount of units available to the prospective buyers. Interestingly, the phone sold out in less than a second. Pei thanked all the buyers who ordered the upcoming device from OnePlus and took a leap of faith.
We know pre-ordering without knowing the product details take a great deal of trust - thanks to everyone who took the leap today. https://t.co/PNxUGun7UJ— Carl Pei (@getpeid) July 1, 2020
The device is expected to feature HD Plus AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, and triple rear cameras. On the front, the device is going to carry dual cameras and it may house 4,300mAh battery with OnePlus’ 30W Warp charger. It will run Android 10 with OxygenOS.
