OnePlus Nord pre-orders in India will happen soon, the company announced on Instagram. The upcoming affordable OnePlus phone went on a limited pre-order in Europe on July 1st and was expected to happen in India as well, but it didn’t. OnePlus has now revealed that pre-bookings will begin in India soon, although an exact date has not been announced yet.  “To all our fans in India — you didn’t really think you were going to miss out on Nord pre-orders, did you? We’ll have more to say about this soon,” the company said on Instagram. The OnePlus Nord is already listed on Amazon India and pre-orders are likely to take place on the e-commerce platforms. 

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau via its official Twitter account revealed the reasoning behind the OnePlus Nord name. “It comes from the concept of true north,” Pei tweeted. “We each have this inner compass that guides us. This product line reminds us to always search for our true north, and we hope it will keep reminding you of yours.”

Some OnePlus Nord specifications have been confirmed by the company already. The phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 765G 5G chipset and will come with a 32MP dual selfie camera setup. OnePlus Nord price is also confirmed to be under $500 (roughly Rs 37,800). We expect the company to reveal more about The OnePlus Nord’s design and features in the coming days.
