    In my last forum post, I told you why we created the OnePlus Nord LE (Literally Only One Edition). Long story short, it’s all because my favorite coffee shop in Shenzhen ran out of oat milk. Now, I’m going to tell you how we made the OnePlus Nord LE.

    Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither are OnePlus Nord one-of-a-kind colorways. Just like OnePlus Nord’s Blue Marble, Gray Onyx, and Gray Ash variants, we continually experimented with a variety of different colors and finishes before finalizing the single OnePlus Nord LE model.

    The OnePlus Nord LE boasts a one-of-a-kind gradient finish that seamlessly transitions from orange to green. Fun fact, we referred to this color internally as ‘Spirit Garden’ – but if you win the OnePlus Nord LE you can call it whatever you want, I suppose.

    Once we decided on the color of the OnePlus Nord LE, it then needed to be applied to a OnePlus Nord model. Simply put, we took a clear version of OnePlus Nord’s glass rear panel and applied a dual layer film that allows multiple colors to seamlessly blend together on a single device.

    Naturally, the benefits of using dual layer film technology are obvious – you get incredible-looking devices like the OnePlus Nord LE. That said, the success rate of making a phone’s finish using such technology is pretty low. On average, you get one pristine OnePlus Nord device from every twenty that you make.

    The OnePlus Nord LE’s rear panel is smooth to the touch, the colors have low saturation, and the entire phone conforms to our internal design philosophy. I think the OnePlus Nord LE gives off a young, positive, and relaxed feeling – I’m sure if you win it you’ll agree.

    Oh boy! Now I really want it!

    It has to be worth a trillion buck right? I mean there is nothing like it! Well maybe "like" it but different color so it's the only one in that color and to all those that collect OnePlus phones (those people exist right?), this phone will be "The One" to own! ;)

    It will be the one to own indeed.

    “we tooka clear version of OnePlus Nord’s glass rear panel and applied a dual layer film that allows multiple colors to seamlessly blendtogether on a single device.”

    other words for someone slapped a sticker on a cover.

    That said, the success rate of making a phone’s finish using such technology is pretty low. On average, you get one pristine OnePlus Nord device from every twenty that you make.

    sounds to me like someone needs to step up his “sticker slapping” skills:rolleyes:
