OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei was recently interviewed by Marques Brownlee (MKBHD), and during their conversation, the sub-$500 Nord smartphone was revealed. Aside from the Nord, we also catch glimpses of other various prototypes with camera placements not seen in other models.

Besides the price, we also find out that it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, has NFC connectivity, Warp Charging, a 90Hz AMOLED display, and a 4115mAh battery.
