A few months ago, OnePlus came up with the Nord as its more accessible offering in the midrange segment. Starting at Rs 24,999, it is the cheapest way to experience OnePlus’ Oxygen OS, until a cheaper OnePlus device came along. However, it hasn’t been a smooth running for the Nord due to a host of bugs and issues. The latest one is related to a random factory reset that’s leading to a data wipeout of the device.

OnePlus Nord 6GB variant is now on sale
The OnePlus Nord is easily among the best value phones in the midrange segment. With the introduction of the 6GB RAM variant, the Nord now becomes more accessible. It is the cheapest smartphone in India to offer 5G connectivity, although 5G is still a distant dream in India. This variant offers 6GB RAM and 64GB storage as standard. Rest of the specifications remain unchanged.
The Snapdragon 765G chipset on the Nord is among the most capable chips you can find in its price range. Similar to previous OnePlus devices, the Nord ships with its Oxygen OS experience based on Android 10. An update to Android 11 is expected in the months to come by. OnePlus also offers its 30W fast charging system and the traditional 90Hz refresh rate display. It even gets the same 48-megapixel main camera from the OnePlus 8.
On October 14, OnePlus is going to reveal the OnePlus 8T 5G flagship phone. Leaks and teasers so far suggest a faster 65W charging as well as a bigger battery, an improved 48-megapixel camera sensor, and a 120Hz AMOLED display.
