OnePlus Nord has a 48MP quad camera setup at the back

Here’s what you need to know about the ‘flagship-level’ camera on the OnePlus Nord.


What you need to know

  • The OnePlus Nord will come with a 48MP primary sensor at the back.
  • It is joined by an 8MP wide-angle lens, 5MP macro lens, and 2MP portrait module.
  • OnePlus is retaining the same oblong housing for the camera modules as the OnePlus 7 Pro/7T Pro.

The OnePlus Nord is all set to make its debut on July 21, and while we know a lot about the upcoming mid-range phone, one particular area that hasn’t been detailed is the camera hardware.

Early leaks pointed to the phone featuring a 64MP camera, but we can now reveal based on information from a OnePlus insider that the OnePlus Nord has a quad camera system at the back that consists of a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP wide-angle lens, 5MP macro module, and a 2MP portrait lens. Combined with the 32MP + 8MP dual cameras at the front, the Nord is turning into an intriguing option in the mid-range category. In a recent interview, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei said that the Nord will have a “flagship-level camera”, and it will be interesting to see if these claims hold up once the device goes live.

Elsewhere, the OnePlus Nord has a Snapdragon 765G chipset, 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, and a 4300mAh battery. The design itself is nearly identical to the OnePlus 8, with a key change being the wide cutout at the front to accommodate the dual camera modules, and a rear camera housing that’s positioned to the left.

The OnePlus Nord will be unveiled on July 21 in a “world’s first” AR launch event that will let customers interact with the device virtually. The device will slot in for under $500 in India, with leaks hinting at a ₹24,990 ($330) retail price. The phone will also be debuting at €500 ($560) in Europe, and OnePlus has confirmed that the Nord will not be available in North America.

Nevertheless, it still has more than enough hardware and modern software to satisfy the needs of the masses.At just $350, the Pixel 4a runs Android 10 and largely features the same camera experience that’s found in the Pixel 4.

Instead it has a polycarbonate body to keep price down.AvailabilityThe Pixel 4a is available for pre-order in the US at Google Store and on Google Fi where it can be purchased unlocked at just $350. It will be more widely available to customers on August 20 through the Google Store, Best Buy, Amazon, and more.
