    So I decided to participate in that challenge that sounded fun, since I like technology and everything creative. 😁

    Here is what I did:


    I think that the OnePlus Nord features are amazing, but I would made have a few changes about the storage.
    Instead of having to choose between 64GB, 128 and 256GB, I would also add the 32GB option. I know almost every brand already removed that, but it could make the phone a bit less expensive and for some people it's enough.

    I hope you liked the design. :)

    Rough sketch of the proposal with not much modification, but probably futuristic ones.

    * Touch sensor for volume rocker
    * In display or rear mounted invisible dual speaker technology
    * Single Rear and Front facing top notch camera with high end software to develop great photos and to cut the cost and invest in other superior proposals

    For other physical design related proposals, I hope that You will hire me in your team, as I am in field of creativity with open mindset to everything[e]1f61c[/e][e]1f61c[/e][e]1f61c[/e]

    Nord is the perfectly designed mobile for such range .
    The phone has pretty much everything one could ask for.
    But incase if I was a product manager ...

    1- I would like to include 3.5 mm jack .
    2- 5000mH battery capacity
    3- Dolby sound just like 7T.

    Since "Nord" is a new and different series altogether, it can be more trendy.

    All the features in the Nord for the price are amazing and need not be changed. The camera housing can be a bit more zappy. Instead of the tried and tested vertical oval housing, it can housed in a "1" shaped housing and the can be enclosed with a etched box replicating the iconic OnePlus logo.

    So when we put a case around it -
    Clear Case :- the case will have a "1" shaped cutout for camera and etched pattern will be clearly visible

    Hard Case :- the hard and opaque case will have a "1" shaped cutout and will be eye catching and people will clearly know that the phone is a OnePlus !

    Telephoto lens for zoom without decrease quality and crop photo this is best for photographer and macro camera will be 5 megapixel best for macro shot

    That is my opinion
    Design my own Nord

    Thank you for giving this opportunity.

    @Fleming liked this, so hopefully I will be recruited in the team..[e]1f61c[/e][e]1f61c[/e][e]1f61c[/e]

    Jokes apart, Further adding to the futuristic plan,

    * Replacing existing touch AMOLED display with, Non touch display with gestures, which can detect touch even before physical touch, as in we can touch virtually

    * Movable Front and Rear facing camera which can move physically along with the object in focus

    These kind of ideas might soung vague and unrealistic, but that's what oneplus is all about. Making it possible through technology driven thinking.

    Here's my pic!
    I've realized this cover, because maybe one more cover is not so bad.

    I wanted to create a cover that represeted the leitmotif of the OnePlus Nord: this way nord.
    So, i think this picture can explait itself automatically, going from where you, the user, can view (and you can see the style that is different from the rest) and then you can go ahead, following the street that, obviously, goes north to the mountains, a clear and immediate symbol for the word "nord".
    Then here we have a sky full of stars, andthe infinite above.

    Hope you all enjoy!

    If I was product manager for Nord I'd love to keep it a mid range smart phone as u guy's did so I'll have to cut few corners so I'll share it in two sections.

    One's I wouldn't change
    1. Battery, warp charge n type c port
    2. Main camera with 48mp sony imx 586 with ois
    3. Amoled display with 90Hz, it's love
    4.main selfie camera
    5. Oxygen os, it's heavenly
    6. Have all waterproof safety without an official rating. What's there in a rating when u got the beef
    7. Gorilla glass obviously
    8. Other buttons and sensors, indisplay finger print sensor
    9. Camera location at same spot

    One's I'd change

    1. Remove NFC, no much use in india
    2.headphone jack, no wireless can beat the clarity and heaven in wired earphones even though those wires are annoying
    3. Make ultrawide camera a 13mp one and throw in a telephoto lens and remove 2nd selfie and macro lens and get macro pics using software like OnePlus 8 series
    4. Maybe a sd card slot if I can squeeze in
    5. I'm fine with plastic frame but aluminium is what I'd try to put in.
    6. Camera flush with back with no bump
    7. And back with bottom half matte finish over glass n top half glass with same colour gradients
    8. Stereo speakers and

    BLUE battery and charging cable. 😄😄😄

    My OnePlus Nord
    So, for the Nord, I would definitely change up the design.
    It's fully 3D Rendered, unforuneately lower quality becuase my PC isn't very powerful and it would take days just to render. But here is "My Nord" (I call it the Nord T)

    With a rectangle camera cutout, it adds a bit of life, even tho some might not like it, it does fit really well. The back is matte glass like on the OnePlus 7 & 8 Series with cool colors (More on colors later)
    It has an AI Button above the colored Power Button and the Sound/Vibration/Mute switch above the volume buttons on the other side. And because this is the "Nord T" it has a little "<T>" badge on the bottom above the Designed by OnePlus text.
    It has a borderless Super AMOLED Screen that will immerse you into your content. It has beautiful and vivid colors whcih means you will enjoy your content a lot more. The display is DisplayMate A+ Certified just like the OnePlus 7 Series displays.

    Featuring a Penta Camera Setup, the OnePlus Nord (T) camera allows you to do Just normal photos, but also expand the field of view to up to 132° with the Ultra Wide Angle Camera, or use the 5X Optical Zoom to get closer to objects that are far. Also has the inclusion of the Color Filter Camera from the OnePlus 8 Pro so you can do cool effects with your photos. Both the Main & Ultrawide can record at 4K 60 FPS and you can switch between them while recording a video with a smooth switch animation.


    The Selfie Camera is a popup camera like on the OnePlus 7(T) Pro to allow the screen to be borderless. It's a single front camera with the resolution of 12 MP so you will still get crisp pictures, but it's time to say hello to a selfie stick again if you want to fit more people in.

    Battery & Charging
    It has a 4600mAh battery so it lasts all day or even longer. And with WarpCharge 3T, you won't have to worry about forgetting to charge it as it will charge it from 0 to 50% in only 30 minutes. It also has Wireless Charging so it fits everyone, Wireless Charging can go up to the speed of 15W. It can also Reverse Wireless Charge other devices with up to 7W.
    Sound & Haptics
    For the sound, it should have Dolby Atmos sound jsut like Samsung phones, even tho it has 2 speakers on the bottom and an earpiece. This is perfect to give you a surround-like experience.

    The Haptics Motor is the same high quality one as on all the other OnePlus phones.
    Just like the OnePlus Nord, it has the Snapdragon 765G with 5G so it performs identically. With UFS 3.0 Storage, LPDDR4X RAM up to 10GB and liquid cooling, it's a great 2020 Higher-MidRange.
    And the other stuff...
    • Squeeze Sensors
    You can squeeze the sides of the phone to start some action like open Google Assistant for example.
    • Audio Sharing
    Listen with up to 2 pairs of headphones connected at once via bluetooth.
    The OnePlus Nord T has a few colors that all look differently with a different shiny effect.

    And that's the OnePlus Nord in my vision!
    I hope you guys like it, and good luck everyone!

    P.S. : Love you OnePlus
