Update, July 10, 2020 (2:16AM ET): Looks like tipster Evan Blass has his hands full with OnePlus Nord leaks. After outing the renders of the phone and images of three custom cases yesterday, he has now leaked pictures of all six OnePlus Nord official cases.

These include three cases we saw yesterday (see original article below) and some new ones. Looks like OnePlus will also launch its classic sandstone, clear, and silicone protective cases for the Nord.

Take a look at all the new cases in the gallery below. Click on each case image to expand it.

Original article, July 9, 2020 (4:08AM ET): The OnePlus Nord is all but launched, with information about it emerging from both official and unofficial sources on a daily basis. Now, popular tipster Evan Blass has posted two new renders of the upcoming mid-range smartphone, giving us our best look at the device yet.

The images show the front and back of the OnePlus Nord, confirming what we’ve heard from leakers so far. Check them out below.

As you can see in the renders above, the OnePlus Nord seems to have the same rounded corners and thin bezels as the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. However, instead of a single punch-hole camera, there are two selfie cameras placed within a pill-shaped housing on the top left of the screen. A previous leak suggested that this is a 32MP+8MP pair, and an earlier teased image hinted at the pill-shaped cutout.

At the back, we see a vertically aligned quad-camera setup as opposed to the triple camera array that was rumored initially. Once again, specs of the rear camera setup have leaked, suggesting a 48MP+8MP+5MP+2MP combo. A flash module rests on the side of this quad-camera setup.

Elsewhere, we see the volume rockers on the left of the OnePlus Nord while the power button and what looks like an alert slider are placed on the right edge.

These aren’t the only images leaked by Blass, as the tipster also posted images of three cases designed by painter Camilla Engstrom, graphic designer Finsta, as well as JerryRigEverything‘s Zack Nelson. Check them out below.

The above images also confirm the presence of a USB-C port but no 3.5mm headphone jack though. That would be a disappointing omission if true, as the port is still found on the vast majority of mid-range phones.

For what it’s worth, the QR code seen in the image of the JerryRigEverything case points to a music video for Eiffel 65’s Blue. At least it’s not a Rickroll.
