UPDATE: OnePlus is not getting ready to launch just one new Nord smartphone, but two of them, it seems. Max J. responded to us on Twitter, confirming that both Snapdragon 600 and 400 series phones are coming.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE: A New OnePlus Nord smartphone could be on the way. The company has teased a new product launch it seems, via its Instagram profile. This is not exactly a straightforward teaser, though.
The company shared an image on Instagram. That image contains the company’s logo, which is black-colored, on a white background. Surrounding it, you’ll see a number of black lines from the edges of the image.
New OnePlus Nord smartphone seems to be coming, at least one of them
Along with the image, the company used the ‘ComingSoon’ hashtag. So, something is coming, and if we had to guess, we’d say it’s a new smartphone. Several new OnePlus Nord devices got teased, so it makes sense.
Now, several OnePlus Nord smartphones got rumored in the last couple of weeks and months, so… we’re not really sure which one to expect. Two Snapdragon 600 series phones were mentioned, and the same goes for a Snapdragon 460-powered device.
OnePlus could, of course, be teasing more than one smartphone here. We could see both a Snapdragon 600 and 400 series devices to become official at the same time.
Knowing the company, it will start teasing the arrival of that device, or devices, soon. The OnePlus 8T is scheduled to launch on October 14, so who knows, maybe one of those phones (or both of them) will arrive at the very same time.
The company does not have a habit of launching two different classes of phones at the same time, though. So, it’s more likely we’ll see the OnePlus 8T, alongside a number of other hardware launches, but not another phone.
The company could announce the ‘OnePlus Nord N10 5G’ and/or the ‘OnePlus Clover’
This new OnePlus Nord handset could be the OnePlus Nord N10 5G which is rumored to be coming to the US. That device is tipped to include the Snapdragon 690 SoC, along with a 90Hz display.
The device is also tipped to sport a 64-megapixel camera on the back, and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage. This phone is rumored to cost around under $400.
The Snapdragon 460-powered handset is expected to cost considerably more than that. That phone is codenamed ‘Clover’, and it is rumored to launch globally.
That smartphone is expected to sport an HD display, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. Chances are this phone will be made out of plastic, but we’ll see.
OnePlus seems to be planning all kinds of product launches, so it remains to be seen what is this teaser all about. It does seem like OnePlus Nord plans to announce at least one new smartphone, though.
