OnePlus Nord will launch on July 21. The company previously confirmed the smartphone will be first announced in India and Europe later followed by North America. The company itself has revealed several features of the upcoming Nord. Renowned tipster Evan Blass has now confirmed the design of the ‘affordable’ OnePlus phone via official looking renders.

The renders reveal the OnePlus Nord with quad cameras at the back panel and dual sensors for selfie on the front. It is said that the OnePlus phone will include a 64MP four-camera setup at the back alongside an LED flash. The overall design of the phone looks neat but there’s no unique touch to it as many would have expected.

Besides the camera set up the phone includes the new ‘ONEPLUS’ logo at the bottom. In the renders, the phone appears in steel colour. OnePlus could bring some more options too. Similar to other OnePlus phones the Nord is seen with the volume rocker and power button on the left side while the alert slider on the right.

Overall, compared to the OnePlus 8 series the Nord looks sleek.
