How to watch the livestream

OnePlus Nord launch event is scheduled for 7:30 PM IST on July 21 in India. It starts at 4 PM CET in Europe or 7 AM Pacific Time (10 AM Eastern) in the United States. The trickiest part of this launch is the event itself. Unlike in the past, OnePlus is not hosting the event via YouTube or its social media channels. The company is instead using augmented reality for the launch. In order to watch the OnePlus Nord launch, you will first need to download the “OnePlus Nord AR” app on your Android or iOS device.

At the time of installation, grant all the permissions asked by the application for it to run smoothly. You will need to set an avatar even though it is not compulsory. After that, the app asks you to move the phone around a flat surface in order to complete the AR setup. The event will take place on this flat surface. At the time of the launch, you will need to open the app and watch the event being augmented into your real world.

OnePlus Nord: What to expect

OnePlus Nord will be a mid-range 5G smartphone powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset. This will be the first OnePlus smartphone to use a non-flagship series chipset from Qualcomm. In case you forgot, the OnePlus X came with Snapdragon 801. There is even a possibility that OnePlus will launch Nord Lite as the second device with Snapdragon 690 today. In terms of memory configuration, the Nord is expected to come with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage.

The leaks point at the smartphone featuring either a 6.44-inch or a 6.5-inch display with 90Hz refresh rate. It will also support 180Hz touch sampling rate, which is identical to OnePlus 8 Pro. There is an in-display fingerprint sensor and dual selfie camera for the first time on a OnePlus smartphone. Carl Pei has confirmed the design, which showed a quad rear camera setup. The main camera is a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor while the second one will be an 8-megapixel 105-degree ultra-wide-angle camera. There will be a 5-megapixel depth sensor and a macro camera.

For selfies, we are looking at a 32-megapixel main camera paired with a second ultra-wide-angle camera. OnePlus has been teasing this camera will eliminate the need to carry a selfie stick. We still don’t know much about battery life but it is tipped to house a 4,115mAh battery. It will lack wireless charging but support Warp Charge 30T for fast wired charging. The smartphone will debut alongside six official cases, as revealed by Evan Blass, and one of them will be a faux-transparent edition made by YouTuber JerryRigEverything.

Time for true wireless earbuds

OnePlus Buds will join Nord as the first true wireless earbuds from the company. It is expected to be priced under $100 (around Rs 7,500)and will come in blue, black and white color. These earbuds leaked yesterday revealing a design that looks like a mixture between Google Pixel Buds and Vivo TWS Neo. The TWS earbuds are rumored to offer noise cancellation during calls and up to 30 hours of battery life. They will lack wireless charging but support fast charging. It will also support fast pairing with OnePlus phones and will be available on both Amazon India as well as Flipkart.
