OnePlus Nord will launch on July 21, the Chinese smartphone maker confirmed on Tuesday. The first launch date was leaked on Monday via an Amazon banner. OnePlus also revealed that India pre-orders of the phone will open via Amazon on July 15, and interested consumers will have to pay Rs. 499 to book upcoming smartphone.

OnePlus Nord is a much awaited smartphone from OnePlus which will take the company to its roots. OnePlus has been claimed to have used it as its value-for-money flagship killer phone, but in the last two years, the company has introduced price tags to add new and exciting features to its smartphones. I have focused more on worrying. OnePlus Nord is going to be a relatively affordable phone and will be priced under $ 500. Although it will not be the second flagship killer, it has been said to come with a mid-range specification and a “flagship level” camera.
“OnePlus Nord represents a new beginning for OnePlus, giving us an opportunity to share our technology with more people around the world,” said Paul Yu, head of OnePlus Nord in a statement.
According to OnePlus, the Nord launch will take place on July 21 and close at 7:30 pm IST. Given the coronavirus epidemic, it would not be a physical launch event. In fact, the OnePlus Nord will be unveiled through the OnePlus Nord AR app which is available through the Google Play Store for Android and the App Store for iOS users.
“For this launch, we want everyone to sit back, relax, and experience our new phone for the first time right in the comfort of their living room. We feel that introducing Nord in a more personal and intimate way perfectly reflects our ambition to make the OnePlus experience more accessible to users,” Yu added.
