OnePlus Nord: Specifications and Availability
OnePlus is well known by many people for their struggle in the pursuit for making smartphones with high performance-price ratios, which they call "flagship killers". They have been a great stand, rivalling the flagships of large companies like Samsung, Huawei, Apple, even similarly targeted companies like Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo and a couple of others.
OnePlus has been trying to compete directly with flagships and as a result, they have been moving far away from their company's main goal for manufacturing; "making the best available for everyone". To compensate for their lack of focus, OnePlus had decided to make a smartphone that would prove impressive before the users, while having a high performance-price ratio. They want to go back to the "true North". The result of their efforts is the "OnePlus Nord".
The OnePlus Nord symbolizes OnePlus going to the true North direction, where the "Nord" part of the name originates from. The thing that makes the phone interesting for us reviewer, is that the OnePlus Nord is targeted a giving people a satisfying user experience, but without giving the users the best option of hardware. For OnePlus to make this happen, they must be very careful with how they prioritize the addition of hardwares on the smartphone. The specifications of the OnePlus Nord is a very interesting case.
