The return of the 3.5 mm audio jack clearly shows that the brand has been listening (pun intended) to its user who have been clamouring for the port.
There is a new OnePlus on the way. And it is a Nord. After the phenomenal success of the first OnePlus Nord, which was one of the highest selling phones in its segment, OnePlus is all set to launch the next phone in the series in India, the Nord CE 5G. The CE stands for “Core Edition” and OnePlus says that the phone will have everything that made the Nord great. And even a little more, at a price that is likely to be lower.
In best OnePlus tradition, the brand has been using its Instagram handle (@oneplus.nord) to drop hints about the forthcoming phone. And they are as creative as you would expect from a brand that prides itself on Never Settling. A moonwalking youngster with headphones is shown with the message “a bunch of steps forward, one step jack,” to highlight the return of the 3.5 mm audio jack. Another post is an animation that has scoop after scoop being added to a gently melting ice cream cone with a OnePlus device at the very top, with the message “a little more than you expect, at an even better price.” That’s not the last you will see of that cone, for another post has a phone’s camera zooming into it, showing a lot of detail and pro mode, along with the message “all the MP you can handle.” Yes, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G will be having a 64 megapixel main sensor as well, as compared to the 48 megapixel one on the original Nord. There are also memes and camera samples, highlighting what the new Nord has to offer.
