OnePlus Nord launch date leaks via Amazon India

It looks like we'll need to wait a couple of weeks to see the new mid-ranger.

  • Amazon India has apparently listed the OnePlus Nord launch date.
  • The retailer listed an invite proclaiming a launch date of July 21.

We’ve known about the OnePlus Nord for a while now, stretching back to that first render of a new mid-range OnePlus phone back in late December.

It’s been a long time coming then, but it looks like we’ve finally got a launch date in India thanks to an AR Launch Invite. The invite was issued by Amazon India and subsequently pulled, according to FoneArena.

The outlet managed to take a screenshot of the invite, showing the July 21 launch date and a currently inactive webpage (nord.oneplus.com/NordAR). Check out the screenshot below (tap to view a larger version).

It also sounds like you can purchase a physical version of this AR invite. Buying the invite apparently enters you into a competition to win a OnePlus Nord, OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z, a OnePlus TV Q1, or gift cards.

It’s unclear if the July 21 date would be a global launch or just the Indian launch. But for what it’s worth, OnePlus is holding three rounds of pre-orders, with the final round taking place on July 15. So there are still a few days between this final pre-order date and the apparent launch date.

We know a fair amount about the OnePlus Nord at this point, such as its Snapdragon 765G chipset, associated 5G connectivity, and a cutout for an apparent dual selfie camera setup. Other rumored specs include a 90Hz screen, quad rear cameras, and 30W fast charging.
