In view of its debut on July 21, OnePlus has released an Instagram video indicating that its Nord phone will arrive with the Google Messages and Phone apps installed instead of its SMS and dialer, 9to5Google reported. The device will also have Google’s Duo video chat app preinstalled, according to the video.
Why OnePlus has decided to implement Google apps is unclear, but apparently it is looking for the most fluid Android experience, according to the video. Such as 9to5Google notes that using Google Messages provides Nord users access to RCS messaging.
OnePlus said the North, slated for an augmented reality launch event on Tuesday, will be a “cheaper“Device. Instagram video refers to” a fairly large price “, but doesn’t offer specific details, however OnePlus said in a video last month that the North will cost under $ 500.
Along with several official announcements, other details on the new phone have leaked in recent weeks. OnePlus has confirmed its name and said that the North will be powered by a Snapdragon 765G 5G processor, 6.55-inch OLED display at 90Hz, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. It is also expected to have a 48 megapixel main camera and a 16 megapixel wide angle lens.
OnePlus Nord is expected to be released first to users in Europe and India.
