This week’s news has been dominated by the OnePlus Nord, which is exactly how the company planned it. OnePlus has been trickling out information bit by bit to give us a clear picture of the device ahead of its launch. The launch event is next Tuesday but we already know so much about the Nord. After revealing the camera setup earlier today, the latest information includes RAM, display details, and more.
First, Shawn L., OnePlus Nord’s head of product, revealed that the device will have a 90Hz refresh rate display. The Nord will also feature a touch sampling rate of 180Hz, which they say will be great for gaming. OnePlus has not confirmed the display size yet, but we know it will be OLED with a dual hole-punch cutout.
Moving on, the OnePlus Nord will have up to 12GB of RAM to go with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC. We don’t know for sure if this will be the base model or a secondary model, but regardless, 12GB is a lot of RAM for a device in the $500 range. That will be a tough processor and RAM combo to beat.
Lastly, OnePlus shared a little teaser video on Instagram about apps. The video states that they thought they made pretty good apps, but then Google came out with Duo, Phone, and Messages. Translation: OnePlus Nord will ship with Google Duo, Google Phone, and the Google Messages app as stock. That’s good news for anyone who was already a user of these apps.
The OnePlus Nord will be officially announced on Tuesday, July 2st.
