OnePlus NORD specifications
Design and display
It has an aluminum frame and covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 both front and back. OnePlus Nord also has a 90Hz screen and offers a firm grip having a 6.44-inch fluid AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. Nord measures 158.3 x 73.3 x 8.2 mm which means it is shorter than the OnePlus 8 series phones. It is not overbearing with a weight of 184g. Nord is available in two colors, the Gray Onyx and the Blue Marble.
Four Rear cameras:

- Ultrawide: This has 8MP, 119-degree ultra-wide-angle snapper for those stretching landscape shots, combined with an f/2.25 aperture.
- Macro: 2MP macro camera with f/2.4 aperture. Though the low-resolution macro cameras on smartphones did not impress us too much.
- Depth sensor: Nord comprises this forth camera with a 5MP depth sensor and f/2.4 aperture. It has a dual-LED flash.
There are shooting modes like nightscape, portrait, super macro, and pro, plus slow-motion video capture at 240fps and 4K recording at 30fps and Full HD.

RAM and storage
Nord is available in 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and 12GB RAM + 256GB storage configurations, which is not bad for an affordable smartphone.
