    SeanPlus , Jul 14, 2020 :
    In an interview with tech-youtuber Marques Brownlee (MKBHD), Carl Pei gives us our first official look at the OnePlus Nord.

    In the video we see some of the early prototypes and learn more about the cost and processes involved when developing a mid-range smartphone. It's a really interesting watch and I recommend sitting through the whole interview.

    If the hype surrounding the Nord has reached a critical level and you can't bear to wait a moment longer, I take great pleasure in revealing to you the OnePlus Nord:

    What are your thoughts on the two colours, and are you still looking forward to the AR launch on 21 July?

    No, you're mistaken, and I definitely didn't just edit out a placeholder image.

    I reckon you're right. 😃

    Other takeaways from the video:
    • as to be expected, there's no official IP rating but the Nord was built to have water resistance
    • probably no headphone jack

    I've pre-ordered the Nord and there's no easy decision between the two colours.

    Do you think they are very 'candy' in appearance? I've not seen a realme 6 Pro in the flesh (so to speak), but I expected OnePlus to go for a similar premium look.

    Looking forward to getting the specs and features.

    Yeah seems glossy but reminds like oneplus 6 maybe in back. See what mean by candy coloured. Hard tell video tbh cause light might make it look different than real life. I kinda dig the blue seems to be the colour of Nord

    Unless there's a difference in spec I'm probably going with teal because it's the Nord range colour.

    Carl said nobody really thinks about their midranged phones and they are what they are.
    I'm not to sure what he has been looking at because these do not look like after thoughts to me.
