OnePlus Nord will be unveiled on July 21, but yesterday in an interview with the famous Youtuber Marques Brownlee, the founder of the company Carl Pei not only talked about the new product, but also showed it.
OnePlus Nord: the brand presents its complete design ahead of time
In fact, we’ve seen Nord in the official promotional video before, but here’s a better look at the smartphone. But it is true that nothing is interesting in this – it looks like a huge number of other smartphones in 2019.
In addition, the video shows that OnePlus worked on completely different design options, but for some reason chose the most typical one. As for the reasons for the release of such a smartphone, Pei said that the SoC in this segment can finally offer features similar to the top platforms. Recall Nord is based on the Snapdragon 765G SoC.
The founder of OnePlus said that adding NFC to a smartphone makes the device $ 4 more expensive. But the official water and moisture protection rating will make a smartphone $ 15 more expensive. By the way, Nord will not have a rating, but OnePlus gave him some protection. It will allow the device to withstand half a minute immersion in water to a depth of 30 cm.
OnePlus may release another affordable smartphone besides the Nord
A few days before the announcement of OnePlus Nord. Recently, a completely different smartphone of the company appeared on the Web. The Geekbench test defines it as BE2028.
The most interesting thing is the processor used. The reference point indicates its passcode – lito – and at first glance, this is the same Snapdragon 765 / 765G. However, in the code, you can find a reference to the Adreno 619 GPU. And only the Snapdragon 690 has one.
Remember that this SoC was released a month ago and has not yet debuted on any smartphone. Its configuration includes two Cortex-A77 cores with a frequency of 2 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores with a frequency of 1.7 GHz.
Given its performance Geekbench, we can say that the performance of the Snapdragon 690 is about equal to the CPU Snapdragon 765 / 765G, although a little slower.
As for the smartphone itself, it will also receive 6 GB of RAM. While, according to rumors, the OnePlus Nord will have at least 8 GB. Therefore, if the reference data is not incorrect, we expect an even more affordable smartphone from OnePlus.
