The OnePlus Nord, also referred to as OnePlus Z, is coming next month and the company has started building hype on social media by dropping teasers. OnePlus hasn’t revealed any specs of the OnePlus Nord yet but if the latest report by Android Central is to be believed, we’ll see the smartphone pack a dual camera setup on the front.
According to the publication, the OnePlus Nord will have a Huawei P40 series-like cut-out in the top-left corner of the screen for the 32MP selfie camera which will be joined by an 8MP ultrawide angle unit. This information was corroborated by usually reliable tipster Max J.
All the smartphones OnePlus launched since 2014 came with a single snapper on the front and Nord was also initially rumored to feature a single selfie camera but turns out it’s going to be the first OnePlus smartphone to pack two front-facing shooters.

If previous leaks and rumors are to be believed, the OnePlus Nord will also be the first mid-ranger from the Chinese phone maker since the OnePlus X that was launched back in 2015.
The OnePlus Nord was spotted on Geekbench earlier this month with a Snapdragon 765G SoC, Android 10, and 12GB RAM. It’s rumored to sport a quad camera setup on the back but its combination is currently unknown.
However, back when it was said to come with three rear cameras, the setup comprised a 64MP main camera, 16MP ultrawide module and a 2MP unit, which was likely a depth sensor. But now that it’s expected to have quad cameras, the fourth module might just be a macro camera.
More details about the OnePlus Nord will likely surface as we inch closer to its unveiling.
