OnePlus is launching its new OnePlus Nord smartphone on July 21, 2020. This will be the first Augmented Reality (AR) launch of a smartphone, as viewers will be able to experience the unveiling from their homes. So now many of us are waiting for OnePlus Nord instead of OnePlus 8 which was launched 3 months ago. So today we are going to be comparing the two devices.
OnePlus Nord is going to have a fluid AMOLED 6.4-inch display, 2400 x 1080 resolution, and 90 Hz refresh rate. Whereas OnePlus 8 has fluid AMOLED 6.55-inch display, 2400 x 1080 resolution with 90 Hz refresh rate. Both the phones are very smooth and will feel fast because of the 90 Hz refresh rate but OnePlus 8 is a little bigger than OnePlus Nord. The Nord display is not big but will feel comfortable in your hand and it will be very good for watching and playing games. It has a bigger display than OnePlus 7T.
OnePlus confirmed that the OnePlus Nord will have a flagship-level camera. It is rumored to come with a quad-camera setup at the rear (main, ultra-wide, macro, and depth). It will have a 32MP front camera and might come with a dual selfie. Whereas OnePlus 8 has a triple camera setup at the rear (main, ultra-wide, macro) and 16 MP front camera for selfies. The OnePlus 8 cameras are impressive, and its macro feature is also good but OnePlus Nord might have a better camera experience than OnePlus 8 with its quad-camera setup and 32MP front camera. Both the phone cameras will give sharp and detailed pictures.
The OnePlus Nord is confirmed to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G which comes with 5g. A leaked spec sheet suggests there will be a choice of 8GB/12 GB of RAM onboard the Nord, as well as 128GB/256GB of storage. The OnePlus 8 has a more powerful chipset with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 which also offers 5g. It also has a choice of 8GB/12GB of RAM onboard the Nord, as well as 128GB/256GB of storage. Here OnePlus 8 processor is way better than OnePlus Nord’s processor because 865 supports features with higher resolution sensors but 765G ensures power efficiency. The OnePlus 7T offers an 855+ snapdragon processor which also is very efficient and fast.
OnePlus Nord is rumoured to come with a 4,115mAh battery whereas OnePlus 8 has a 4,300mAh battery. Both will have a have comparable battery life. OnePlus 8 has a more powerful processor that uses more power so the 185mAh difference would not be that much. The OnePlus 7T has a 3800 mAh battery which in comparison to OnePlus Nord and OnePlus 8 is less. All these devices have Warp Charge fast charging support with 30W.
So, OnePlus Nord specs are very good but it lacks behind in some of the reasonable areas and its cost is rumored to be between Rs 25,000 and Rs 35,000 which is less than OnePlus 8 which costs Rs 42,000 and the OnePlus 7T is now available at Rs 37,000. OnePlus Nord is expected to be a little less premium and less water-resistant. If you are a heavy gamer or do a lot of intensive tasks OnePlus 8 is to go for.
