OnePlus Nord N20 - The OnePlus phone with flat edges?
OnePlus has been one of the most trusted smartphone brands in the world. They are very popular among their loyal fan base due to their quality, durability, aesthetics, specifications, and affordable pricing. There has been a word in the street that OnePlus is readying itself for a launch of its new mid-range budget smartphone ‘OnePlus Nord N20 5G’ which is believed to be a successor to the ‘OnePlus Nord N10’ which was launched last year. Despite the company maintaining the secrecy of this launch on their part, specifications and renders have been leaked for the new OnePlus Nord on the internet by OnLeaks a.k.a Steve Hemmerstoffer.
OnePlus has been a successful disrupter in the smartphone market due to its dual focus on top-notch specifications with reasonable pricing. They listen to their loyal fan base through a platform called ‘OnePlus Community’ and incorporate relevant suggestions in their software or next smartphone which have drastically improved customer satisfaction. The company has set a strong foot in the market and customers are ready to welcome the new smartphone.
Design of all upcoming OnePlus Nord N20
According to the hearsay, OnePlus will be introducing a flat-edge design in their new smartphone, the OnePlus Nord N20 5G which has not been seen in any of the previously released phones of the company. This new design has received a warm welcome from the OnePlus community. The renders which have been released online recently showcase a very refreshing unique look with a boxy design, punch-hole selfie camera (on the front, top left corner), decent-sized bezel at the bottom, and a glass back with the OnePlus logo. It may come in more than two colour options apart from purple and grey shown in renders.
The leaked renders show that the phone may have a flat frame with chamfered edges and an improvised camera setup which will probably come with triple lenses. If what is seen from those leaked versions is true, OnePlus would be deviating from its predecessor Nord N10 in terms of the design which had a 2.5D curved design. The right side of the frame contains the power button. While the left side houses the volume rocker and SIM card tray. There is a microphone on the top for noise cancellation. The bottom portion of the frame contains a microphone, speaker grille, USB Type-C port (for charging and data transfer), and 3.5 mm Audio jack.
FHD+ AMOLED display with Nord N20
Display in any smartphone plays a very important role for overall aesthetics and user-friendliness. As per the renders and specifications leaked, the Nord N20 5G will have a 6.43-inch flat display. It may have a Full High Definition (FHD+) AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint sensor and flat design. The resolution for the display would be 1080*2400 pixels with a 20:9 ratio. There would be a punch-hole cutout in the front for the selfie camera on the top-left corner. The protection of the display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 has increased the durability of the phone. The measurement of the phone would be 159.8*73.1*7.7 mm (9.6mm including rear camera bump).
What to expect from the camera department of the OnePlus Nord N20
OnePlus brand smartphones are known in the industry for their superior image/video quality, vibrant colors, and in-built camera tools. The company is trying to improvise their camera with every subsequent smartphone. The render of the new Nord N20 shows a triple rear camera setup and LED flash with 48 MP primary sensor, 2MP lens, and a 2MP third sensor. This would provide the ability to shoot 4K quality videos at 30fps and 1080p videos at 30/60/120 fps. These features would help users to capture stunning pictures and videos with their new gadget.
The selfie camera in the front in a punch-hole cutout would be featuring a 16 MP shooter with the ability to record 1080p quality videos at 30/60 fps. This would be ideal for the users to capture perfect selfies and video call their closed ones.
OnePlus Nord N20 Performance - Snapdragon 695
The smartphones launched by OnePlus are ideal for multitasking and smooth functioning due to the company’s commitment to using the latest and quality chipset in their gadgets. According to OnLeaks, the upcoming OnePlus Nord N20 5G will be powered through the recently released Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G chipset. This will ensure that the phone doesn’t lag or heat up with apps demanding more juice.
The phone is expected to have Android 11, OxygenOS 11 as its Operating System along with internal storage of 128 GB and 6GB RAM for a good user-friendly experience. The phone is expected to be backed up with a non-removable Li-Po battery with a 30W Fast charger for long-lasting performance so that users can perform their tasks without worrying about the battery drain.
Can new OnePlus Nord Specifications makes it the best budget 5G Smartphone?
OnePlus launched its Nord series a few years back with an aim to target mid-range smartphone users who are looking for decent specifications and reasonable pricing. The Nord series that was launched by the company was an instant hit among the users as they were getting a very affordable range of smartphones that had a good brand value. Due to the success of the initial Nord series, the company rolled out subsequent phones in the series and kept on attracting a sizable chunk to be a part of the OnePlus Community.
The official date of launch of the Nord N20 5G is not yet made public by OnePlus. People would be eagerly waiting for OnePlus to officially launch the phone to see if the specifications and renders that were leaked are accurate or not. If OnePlus sticks around that price range as its predecessor, the upcoming Nord N20 5G would become one of the best mid-range budget smartphones for the company due to its unique design and superior specs. This will further help OnePlus to cement its place in the mid-range smartphone segment and continue to grow its loyal customer base.
