Before the launch of the OnePlus Nord, OnePlus revealed that the phone will not be launched in the US. However, they did say they “…look forward to bringing more affordable smartphones to North America in the future”. It has now been revealed that the United States will be getting a OnePlus Nord later this year.
The info was revealed by Carl Pei to Wired magazine. The co-founder had revealed that a Nord-branded phone will be launched in the US later this year. Remember that Nord is not just the name of a phone but a line of affordable OnePlus smartphones.
There are speculations that the upcoming phone may be the already OnePlus Nord with slight modifications for the US or a different phone entirely.
We are already in the third quarter of the year and we expect details of this new phone will begin to surface beginning in August with a launch planned for September or maybe October alongside the OnePlus 8T series.
Let us not also forget that before the launch of the OnePlus Nord, a OnePlus smartphone with a Snapdragon 690 processor was seen on Geekbench. The phone which was referred to as the OnePlus Nord might just be the one heading to the US, and since it is packing a less-powerful processor, it should have an even lower price tag.
