Ex-flagship killer OnePlus has teased a budget device slated for 2020 release several times months ago. Today, OnePlus has announced the OnePlus Nord will be available in Malaysia really soon.
It seems that OnePlus is finally taking a step back to its roots which introduces competitive products with affordable pricing. Aside from that, the OnePlus Nord is reportedly created based on the feedback of its evergrowing community that the company has been known to listen quite frequently to its user.
According to rumors, the elusive OnePlus Nord will be equipped with a Snapdragon 765G SoC, 90Hz display, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, a quadruple rear-facing camera setup, and dual-selfie camera setup.
Leaked price suggested an RRP of $499USD price tag so expect around RM2000 when it reaches the Malaysian shorefront. Not exactly “back to its roots” kind of pricing, since the RM2000 mark is around what the Poco F2 Pro is priced.
Launching the OnePlus Nord product line marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for OnePlus. The ‘Never Settle’ spirit is centered around sharing the best technology and products with the world, but it is also about challenging ourselves and going beyond our comfort zone. 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.
