OnePlus Nord And Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G
Early reports of the new mid-ranger from OnePlus were revolving around the MediaTek Dimensity 1000. The stories didn’t get confirmed from either OnePlus or MediaTek. As a result, people started looking towards Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset. It seems like OnePlus will stay on the Snapdragon train for the Nord series too. OnePlus and Qualcomm confirmed this already.
A tweet from Qualcomm got taken down recently, which mentioned that they were excited to embark on the new beginnings with OnePlus. Indirectly, it hinted towards the Snapdragon 765G processor. The 765G Chipset is Qualcomm’s upcoming 5G-enabled processor.
Furthermore, in an interview with TechRadar, Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus, confirmed that they’d be using the Snapdragon 765G chipset to keep the OnePlus Nord budget-friendly. As a result, we’ll see a 5G enabled mid-range smartphone from OnePlus. Additionally, Pete Lau also mentioned its pricing to be €500 in Europe.
SeeingTaking a look at the pricing, we can say that OnePlus is going more towards the mid-range budget segment. Besides that, OnePlus Nord will directly compete with other budget smartphones around the same price as the iPhone SE, Mi Note 10, Oppo Reno 2, and many more. In the interview, Carl Pei said that we could see a better Camera, User Experience, and Quality on the new series.
We’ll see more updates from OnePlus in the upcoming weeks regarding the new series. There is no mention of the release day anywhere, but it seems a little delayed now if we see the Documentary.
