OnePlus is once again entering the affordable smartphone segment with the launch of a new product lineup. Ahead of the launch, the company has confirmed that its non-flagship product will be called OnePlus Nord. With the new lineup, OnePlus says it aims to make the “premium OnePlus experience accessible to more users.” This marks a new beginning for the brand that goes with the slogan “Never Settle” and will see the company compete in the lower end of the price segment.
