OnePlus is preparing to unveil a new smartphone called OnePlus Nord on July 21. It will be an important event for the company, after all, the last mid-range phone we saw from the company was the unfortunate OnePlus X. In addition to the OnePlus Nord, the company will announce the first TWS headphones, for now, called OnePlus Buds . Today, the Chinese company released a new teaser. The new part is about the noise canceling feature, however, it may not be what you expect.

It is not ANC, but it is a good start
The teaser clearly states that the upcoming OnePlus Buds will feature noise cancellation during the call. This is a very nice feature that the person at the other end of the call can hear very clearly. However, focusing on this particular scenario means that the headset will not have active noise cancellation while listening to music. ANC is extremely useful, but unfortunately not all companies have TWS headphones. Possibly, ANC is hurting the price point that OnePlus is targeting. Therefore, the focus is only on calls.
There is still room for some surprises, but as mentioned above, ANC will definitely add a lot to the final price. According to rumors, the company may even offer the new headphones as a free gift to those who buy a OnePlus Nord in some countries.
Supposed specifications of OnePlus Nord
As for the OnePlus Nord, the new smartphone will have a Snapdragon 765G chipset and up to 12 GB of RAM. The handset has a pill-shaped notch for a complex dual-selfie. There are two cameras in front with 32MP and 8MP resolution. As for the main camera setting, we have a Quad-Camera array with 48MP + 8MP + 5MP + 2MP cameras. The new range of cameras will also include Optical Image Stabilization, a feature not common on mid-range smartphones.
The smartphone should be unveiled on July 21 along with the OnePlus Buds. However, the company decided to reveal the handset in all its glory. The phone was exposed during an interview with popular YouTuber Marques Brownlee. Company founder Carl Pei unveiled the handset in a beautiful blue variant of the sky. The video also shows different design options of the device, but the company keeps the more standard one. The handset is very different from the renders that have been circulating on the Internet since the beginning of this year.
