For the past few weeks, we have been hearing about OnePlus’s upcoming affordable smartphone which was tipped to be OnePlus Z or OnePlus Lite. However, it was recently confirmed that the smartphone will be named as OnePlus Nord instead of what we have heard of it.
The smartphone teaser has now popped up on the Amazon India website, hinting that the launch is near. In addition to that, the company has also confirmed that the smartphone will be launched in July. Now, the company surprisingly announced that the phone will be going on pre-orders today itself.
This announcement came from the company’s official Instagram page that posted a story with the timer counting down to 1:30 pm IST. When the pre-orders go live, 100 units of the OnePlus Nord will be available. However, it is still unclear what the pre-order system will be like since the price is unknown.
Well, considering the company’s UK website, it reveals some of the details about the device. The OnePlus Nord will be also going live on pre-order today at the same time (10 am CEST). The website states that there will be two more opportunities to pre-order the OnePlus Nord, one on July 8 and the other on July 15. The one on July 8 will presumably also have 100 units while the one on July 15 will last for 24 hours.
As mentioned on the website, the customers who are willing to buy the device on pre-order session have to pay a GBP 20 (approx Rs. 1,900) payment to pre-order the phone and then make the complete payment after the phone is released. The UK website mentions the pre-orders will make customers eligible for some merchandise as well.
Additionally, OnePlus Co-founder and CEO Pete Lau recently shared that the phone will cost under $500 (roughly Rs. 38,000). Lau also shared that there will be an “affordable smartphone line” and not just one phone.
As of now, the pricing and specifications of the phone are still a mystery for us. However, we will get confirmation over this when the phone will be officially launched by the company. As for the launch date, considering one of the reports from Android Central, OnePlus Nord will be launched on 10 July in India.
