To enter the giveaway, youll need to retweet and like the post, and then fill out an online form. It appears that anyone over the age of 18 can receive one entry, though travel papers to Paris are apparently also required in order to be eligible, for some reason. The giveaway will evidently be accepting entries until June 21, Nords official launch date, rolls around. The ten winners will be announced on the same date, after the launch event. The tweet has already amassed over 16,000 retweets and nearly 19,000 likes, showing the amount of hype looming behind the companys newest mid-ranger.The included image doesnt include any other details other than the OnePlus logo and gently curved sides, but the copious leaks that have surfaced over the past weeks leave little to the imagination, and even spec announcements are likely to be almost perfunctory.
OnePlus Nord specs & leaks
The OnePlus Nord is expected to have impressive specs for its low price point, which could start at $299, including a Snapdragon 765G chipset, 8 or 12GB of RAM, and a 6.4-inch Fluid AMOLED display with a built-in fingerprint sensor. OnePlus is also evidently putting a lot of focus on the phones camera systems, with a quad-lens camera setup adorning the devices back. The 48MP main shooter sports optical image stabilization, while additional wide-angle, macro, and depth-sensing cameras round out the phones photographic prowess. On the front side, the Nord packs a 32MP selfie shooter and an ultra-wide 105° lens for group selfies.
Theres also a 4,115mAh battery and OnePluss signature 30T Warp Charging to keep the show on the road for as long as possible and as quickly as possible. All things considered, the Nord is shaping up to be a highlight release of the yearespecially when you consider that its most comparable competitors are the pretty but disappointingly pricey LG Velvet, or the upcoming Pixel 4a, which has been delayed numerous times this year.
The Nord also harkens back to OnePluss own ideals in the early days of the company, back when it debuted the OnePlus One and threatened the big players with its first Flagship Killer. Over a number of years, the next OnePlus devices slowly shifted from good devices at excellent prices to excellent devices at good prices.
With the OnePlus Nord, the company is apparently trying to reclaim the upper-midrange segment with a compellingly-priced, feature-packed package. Unfortunately, the US is evidently not within the Nords target market, as the device wont be released here, but the possibilities are apparently still open for future iterations of the device.
However, the special giveaway does seem to be open in the States as well, meaning this might be the only official way to get your hands on one for the time being. In any case, itll be exciting to see the Nord make its official debut on the 21st. And hey, the giveaways open for the six days between now and then, so shoot your shot while you can.
