The long-awaited, more affordable OnePlus Z will finally be called ‘OnePlus Nord’, and it will directly attack the most important markets for OnePlus: India and Europe.
We have known for a few weeks that OnePlus works on a cheaper smartphone, something like a model ‘Lite’ leaked numerous times and has ended by materialize the return to the origins of a OnePlus that needed this incentive, and who has already officially announced a new family Nord by OnePlus that will see the light soon.
You are right, OnePlus will have a flagship killer manual, with a cheaper price and the return of its popular reservation systems, which anticipate a best-selling model for which specific details about its hardware are not yet known. Be that as it may, and thanks to the filter @ ishanagarwal24 we already know that the reference Nord in its name does not mean that it is only sold in the most northern countries, because here we have the list of lucky countries that will receive the next affordable OnePlus mobile.
In fact, the OnePlus Nord will not be sold in North America, as has been confirmed in India where it can already be booked through the local division of Amazon, teaching later a large list of European markets where OnePlus has its great vein:
- Czech Republic
In any case, OnePlus itself has hinted that a select number of customers and North American users may participate in a program Beta limited after launch, we assume that as a prelude to test how their markets breathe with mobile phones Nord by OnePlus, and value its expansion to America.
OnePlus will exploit its fetish markets with its new affordable mobiles, and the OnePlus Nord range will reach India and Europe first with a closed ‘Beta’ program for select users in North America

Why OnePlus Nord? Carl Pei himself explains it to us …
Of the new OnePlus Nord we do not have too many specific details, only that it will mount a double front camera in a hole on a 6.55-inch AMOLED panel, with 90 Hz refresh and integrated finger reader. There is also talk of a chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 accompanied by 6 GB of RAM, and mounting for internal storage another 128 GB.
Apparently, it would be a similar model in concept to the Pixel 4a that Google should launch imminently this summer, adding in the Chinese case a triple back camera up to 64 megapixels and a 4,300 mAh battery with 30W fast charge.
Regarding the name, it was GizmoChina’s colleagues who anticipated Carl Pei’s words on social networks, and that is that the CEO and founder of OnePlus has explained the reason for the name ‘Nord’ for your new mobiles.
Carl Pei says that the name comes from the “concept of true north, because we all have an inner compass to guide us and OnePlus needed to get its way back. The chief executive of the Chinese company affirms that the name of its new product line comes to remind us that we must always keep looking for our true north.
Curious, at least, it is that a mobile brand wants to appeal to references of this type with the names of their products, but We are glad to see OnePlus abandoning climbing to return to its origins, bringing us back to that quality mobile, with good performance and a very attractive price that we all expect from its first launches, or almost since the idea of the Nexus 5 died. Thanks OnePlus! We will welcome news from the new Nord.
