OnePlus Nord 5G – allegedly the retail name of the OnePlus Z (previously known 8 Lite) – will have a quad-camera, teases leakster Max J. Initially, renders showed a dual camera, then rumors claimed a triple cam, now we’re up to a quad setup.
Back when the rumors were claiming a triple cam, the breakdown was a 64 MP main (some sources claimed 48 MP), 16 MP ultrawide and a 2 MP module (likely a depth sensor).
The fourth module may be a macro camera as putting a telephoto lens on the “lite” model (even if it’s not named as such) doesn’t make sense. For comparison, the vanilla OnePlus 8 has a 48+16+2 MP setup, matching the triple cam rumors about the Nord.
The OnePlus Nord will have a Snapdragon 765G chipset as Geekbench revealed earlier this month, instead of the S865 flagship chip inside the OnePlus 8 duo (and likely 8T as well). This puts the device in the mid-range column, limiting expectations on the camera hardware.
Anyway, Max J previously teased that the OnePlus Nord is coming in July, so we’ll get the truth in a couple of weeks. For the record, the phone is expected to have a flat 6.4” display with 90 Hz refresh rate and a 4,000 mAh battery with Warp Charge. And, of course, 5G connectivity, that has been a focus for OnePlus recently.
