    Mr. BG , Jul 5, 2020 :
    The midrange Oneplus will be here soon has arrived, did you order one?

    What's your opinion so far?

    Presales were a one second storm, for all we know it's going to be a large 6.5" midrange model, expected specs:
    • 6.5-inch 90Hz Super AMOLED screen
    • Dual 5G network support
    • Face ID & In-screen fingerprint reader
    • Memory: 8GB / 12GB DDR4x RAM
    • Internal storage: 128GB / 256GB UFS 2.1 ROM
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, Octa-core, 2.4GHz
    • Quad camera: 48MP + 13MP + 8MP + 2MP / 32MP front camera (f/2.4)
    • 4025mAh battery, VOOC 4.0
    Oh, if you wonder where i got this specsheet, this one is from the Oppo Reno Pro 5G, let's see how alike they turn out or how wrong i'll be ;) Edit: spot on it seems...

    It's way too big for my taste, I'm leaning to the Pixel, but hey, here are some things to consider. As of right now the price is still a big question mark. Rumours range from $300 to $500. If the latter is the case disappointment will be imminent.

    Edit: starting at €399,- right in the middle

    There is serious competition going on in that midrange, for example this one, it's not the fastest, but for €212,- (nearly half the price) it is bang on ;)
    • Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Global Version
    • 6.67 inch 64MP Quad Camera
    • 6GB 128GB 5020mAh NFC S
    • 720G Octa core 4G Smartphone

    What do you think, what will be the stiffest competitor for the Nord?

    At what price can the Nord be really succesful?

    Share your thoughts, you never know who might read along...

    Edit: updates, typos and stuff ;)

    Google has this week discontinued the Pixel 3a, so the 4a - which has reportedly been delayed for months - may be about to drop.
    • Stock Android
    • Flagship camera
    • Smaller size (i.e. more manageable size)
    If the 4a has 5G and is about the same price as Nord, OnePlus will have strong competition from one of the most globally recognised brands.

    I have the 3A, and I love it, I just wish it was a little bit smaller even, but at 70mm wide it's just right, be it a bit tall, smaller bezels on all sides would be great.

    As for stock Android and the camera, I love them both.

    And if you don't like stock Android there is always Nova Launcher.

    I'm fine with a thin bezel on the top and bottom if it means getting front-facing dual speakers and somewhere to hide the camera (I'd rather a pop-up camera than a bigger bezel or notch/hole-punch).

    I wouldn't buy a Huawei because of the issue with Play Store, and privacy concerns.

    I thought it was $100 more expensive.
    If not, its a great price. It will last more than 3 years......better than the Pixel.
