OnePlus' upcoming budget phone will officially debut as OnePlus Nord

The name of OnePlus' upcoming budget phone has been a mystery so far, with fans torn between OnePlus Nord, OnePlus Z, OnePlus 8 Lite and whatever. Well, the smoke is finally disappearing and the name has been officially confirmed – OnePlus Nord. What is Nord, however? We don't know, at least not yet.

In the first episode of the four-part documentary about the upcoming phone, OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau revealed that OnePlus Nord will be the first product under $ 500 in the early years. Another striking piece of information is that the phone will be sold in India and Europe.

As for fans in the U.S. market, the company says that due to a limited number of beta programs, OnePlus Nord will be owned by a select number of users in the country after its launch. The video also gives us a glimpse of the phone's design, with two front-facing cameras and a flat screen. It may turn out to be an early prototype design, but here it is:

( function( d, s, id ) {
var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName( s )(0);
if ( d.getElementById( id ) ) return;
js = d.createElement( s ); js.id = id;
js.src = “http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.5&appId=305449883698649”;
