OnePlus has been teasing their upcoming affordable smartphone, Nord, for the past several weeks. While lesser specs on a budget phone would be acceptable, OnePlus Nord is not taking that route, and today some of the premium offerings have been confirmed.

OnePlus reported a host of specs for the forthcoming onePlus Nord smartphone in two different posts this week. Which starts with the continued commitment of the company to the achievement of “smoothness.” This is achieved first and foremost by the 90Hz monitor. Unlike the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 8 series, Nord will be providing the faster refresh rate. In addition, it will also have a higher contact sampling rate on previous versions at 180Hz over the 135Hz.

We introduced our first 90Hz display on the OnePlus 7 Pro last year. Since then, we’ve been working relentlessly to optimize our 90Hz technology for the best user experience. One of the biggest improvements we’ve made has come from the touch response rate we’re able to achieve from our 90Hz display technology. Touch sampling rate basically measures how fast a screen responds to your every touch, swipe, and scrolling gesture per second.

With Nord, we’ve upped its peak touch sampling rate from 135Hz on the OnePlus 7T to 180Hz for specific tasks like gaming, where the timing of every input can decide whether you finally take down a fearsome boss or succumb to its wrath once more.

We have known under the hood that the Snapdragon 765 G would be used for some time. Additionally, up to 12 GB of RAM will come with the device. The RAM allotment for the base model is not yet known, but I would wager it wouldn’t be a small amount.

OnePlus also listed the camera specs on the OnePlus Nord in its second article. On the back, using the Sony IMX586 sensor, there’ll be a 48MP primary camera. That’s the same one we found in the OnePlus 8 (not the Pro), which we found in our review was a decent offering.

There’s an ultrawide 8MP and a 5MP depth sensor to back up the main sensor. OnePlus also says that there is a macro shooter but does not mention the count of megapixels. There’s also a 32MP selfie camera on the front which is backed up by a wide-angle sensor, something we knew already. We know that the secondary shooter is 8MP, too, thanks to a previous report.

OnePlus Nord is expected to be unveiled in full on July 21. Though, at the current speed, by then there is simply little that we do not learn.
