    The closest thing to a diamond is the OnePlus Nord and I was happy to see @Carl actually comparing it to a diamond during the AR launch, see image below. I had also posted something similar to this on OnePlus Nord instagram page 2 days ago and I was happy and pleased to see that my thinking resonated with the OnePlus team who built this amazing device.

    @Carl @Andy Liu. @Shawn L. Who is handling the social media handles of Oneplus Nord, they're super active and were very engaged ever since the page came up on instagram?

    Hey @Carl, Greetings from a Oneplus Admirer. Curious to know about certain things on your new product lineup. In my frank opinion I've expected the 6GB version of Nord to come with a 128 gb internal memory with little less price tag between 22k and 24k in India, which was disappointing. Considering India as the price sensitive market you should have gone for that. But I'm impressed with the price of Oneplus buds which is very reasonable for those impressive features.

    1. Why didn't you go for a 128GB storage for the 6GB version in India, as it'll not be enough for most users, since your products doesn't come with expandable storage option ? Also why it is late by a month? Why there is only one colour option for the 6GB variant which is not the Nord blue? @Carl

    2. Do 765G capable of playing pubg on the highest available graphics? As far I know Nord doesn't support HDR settings, even though phones with similiar processor, like Vivo X50 pro and others offer that. Can you guys fix it with an update? Is Nord Widevine DRM L1 Certified? Does it support HD streaming in OTT platforms? @Carl

    3. Is the frame between the glass sandwich design mettallic or plastic? Definitely I love the signature nord blue colour. Why didn't you guys go for the same colour charging cable for the Nord series? And why did you finalise this design even though it looks like most of the realme phones out there? Why there are only 2 colour options? @Carl

    4. No complaints on not choosing stereo speakers. But could you do that by saving cost cutting those macro and depth sensors? Anyways, do Nord support Dolby Audio? Which are the supported audio codec in Nord?@Carl

    5. Why did chose to add macro and depth sensors, since you can do depth effect using software and macro mode can be done using the same wide angle Lens which you guys did impressively in the oneplus 7T? Could you go for a better quality wide angle lens, saving cost by cutting those macro and depth sensors? Why Nord's front camera allows to record video upto 4K at 60fps while the rear camera is limited to 30fps? Is that hardware limited?@Carl

    6. In the case of Oneplus buds, why did you chose the hard plastic design instead of going for a silicon ear tip design ? Why not considering a pro variant with a more comfortable design?@Christine L.

    7.Do Oneplus Buds support LDAC Codec and Is it having active noice cancellation? @Christine L.

    8. Watched on a review that there are not many options in the touch control of Oneplus buds. What is your opinion on that and how will you guys fix it? @Christine L.

    How did OP team manage to create such a VFM product at a lower price than OP8, while retaining most of the features?

    Hello, the question is for @Shawn L.
    How does OnePlus think of competing with the other smartphones in the price range, not in terms of specifications and build quality, but in terms of longevity of the NORD brand and the future devices? Will the series of NORD devices in this budget segment continue to exist?

    Hi @Christine L.!
    All of us know that radiations are carcinogenic in the long run and having them so close to your brain may be a concern. This is one reason why people may prefer to use wired earphones instead of wireless ones. I wanted to know how OnePlus is trying to ensure safety with the OnePlus buds in this respect. Thanks!:)

    Hi Shawn and Carl,

    You and entire team really have set a bar too high for the upcoming events that One Plus will be hosting. Really appreciate the Innovative AR launch for the much awaited One Plus Nord.

    I would like to ask you guys about your future plans for One Plus Nord. Will it be the only phone of the series or you guys have plans for the launch of other phones as a part of the series..😉
