OnePlus has announced a new product line of cheaper phones called OnePlus Nord, with the goal of making the “premium OnePlus experience accessible to more users.”
“We are immensely proud of our flagship products and will continue to create more tech-leading flagships for our users. Now we are excited to share the OnePlus experience with even more users around the world through this new product line,” commented OnePlus CEO Pete Lau in the announcement.
OnePlus originally began by selling cheaper devices (the original OnePlus One started at just $299), but it’s become best known for its premium smartphones over the past few years (like the current OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro). Those models have attempted to challenge phones from more entrenched brands like Samsung or LG by offering comparable high-end features and designs at lower prices than most flagships. But even the cheapest OnePlus devices right now start at $699. The new Nord line will look to alleviate that issue by offering cheaper phones than the company’s current offerings.A return to cheaper phones for OnePlus
OnePlus hasn’t offered too many details on what the first OnePlus Nord phone will look like, but it has said that it’ll launch in Europe and India. North American customers interested in the OnePlus Nord line will have a chance through “a highly limited beta program” set for after the main launch internationally.
Earlier leaks indicate that the first OnePlus Nord phone (which, at one point, was rumored to be called the OnePlus Z or the OnePlus 8 Lite) will feature a Snapdragon 765G processor, a 6.55-inch 90Hz OLED display, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. The phone is also expected to offer a 48-megapixel main camera as well as a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens.
OnePlus is expected to announce more details about the first OnePlus Nord phone at a July 10th launch event in India.

"The baton is being passed on from two formidable actresses and I really don’t want to let the side down.
“Furthermore, to play siblings with my dear friend Imelda Staunton will be nothing short of a complete joy."4Helena Bonham Carter has played Margaret in season three and upcoming season four 4Vanessa Kirby played the Princess in the first two seasonsCredit: Netflix 4Lesley is excited to follow in their footsteps and play Margaret in her later yearsCredit: Andrew Sims - The Times
The Crown's cast changes every two seasons to reflect the aging process of the Royal Family.
Vanessa Kirby played Margaret in seasons one and two - winning a Bafta for her portrayal of the lively princess - before Helena took over for seasons three and four.
The news comes after The Sun revealed how Lesley was the show's first choice to play Margaret in her later years.
A source said: “Lesley is hugely respected by the creators of The Crown and was their first choice to play Princess Margaret this time.Most read in TV‘I MUST KEEP GOING’Dog the Bounty Hunter's son says he needs late mom Beth’s ‘advice’ExclusiveFOR BETHInside Dog The Bounty Hunter's emotional private memorial for late wife BethExclusiveRETAIL THERAPYMasked Angelina seen for first time in months as she takes daughter to storeNatural Beauty!Long Island Medium’s Theresa Caputo is unrecognizable in makeup-free photoMOM'S A SMOKERTeen Mom’s Catelynn Lowell slammed by fans for having cigarettes in carDEFYING DAD!Pregnant Joy-Anna Duggar rebels against family by showing off bare shoulders
“They wanted a star who could tackle the difficult role of a royal entering one of the darkest periods of her life, when the Windsors faced endless scandals and she was dogged by ill health.”
It was confirmed in January that The Crown would end after its fifth season, with fans having originally expected six seasons.
Imelda was confirmed for the role of The Queen at the same time, following in the footsteps of Olivia and Claire Foy, who played the Monarch in the early years of her reign across seasons one and two.
