  • OnePlus has revealed the first look at the OnePlus Nord in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in a new teaser video.
  • Shared in advance with Android Authority, the video confirms the mid-range phone will sport a dual selfie camera and gives us an idea of the handset’s design.
  • Android Authority spoke to OnePlus Head of Global, Carl Pei, ahead of the teaser’s launch. Be sure to check out our interview with the company’s co-founder for more on the OnePlus Nord.

OnePlus has been slowing trickling out details about the OnePlus Nord — the company’s second stab at cracking the mid-range market. We know the name, the processor (the Snapdragon 765G), and a ballpark price, but aside from leaks and rumors, we’ve had no official teases of what the phone actually looks like.

Thanks to a new teaser video (embedded below) published on the OnePlus Nord Instagram page — shared in advance with Android Authority — we’ve now been treated to our first look at OnePlus’ long-awaited affordable phone. It’s a fleeting glimpse to say the least, but there’s plenty to unpack and some brief clues about the OnePlus Nord specs.

The OnePlus Nord appears in the video at around the one minute mark as we see someone make a video call with the phone before slipping it into their pocket. The images in this article are screenshots taken from the video and show the front, back, and right side of the phone.

Let’s start with the most interesting part: the cameras. If you squint closely at the images above (click to expand), you can just about make out the reflection of a dual-lens, punch-hole selfie camera, similar to the Huawei P40 Pro. This lends further credence up a recent report that suggested the OnePlus Nord will sport a main 32MP selfie camera with an 8MP wide-angle shooter alongside.

Things are a little less clear for the rear camera. Early renders hinted that the OnePlus Nord — then rumored to be called the OnePlus Z — would have a triple camera. More recent speculation has pointed to a quad camera setup, however. While it’s not completely clear in the video, the reflection of one of the lenses and its position in the vertical module does seem to suggest that we’re looking at four cameras on the rear. Check out the image below and tell us what you think.

Other takeaways include the color of the phone, which appears to have a cool gray/blue tone. We can also see the button arrangement on the right side. This confirms that the beloved OnePlus alert slider will make its way from the OnePlus flagships to the Nord. Below that lies what appears to be a power button, with the volume rocker outline barely visible on the right in another frame. This tallies with very early CAD renders and echoes the button layout of the OnePlus 8 series.

The teaser video, which is intended to set the tone for the upcoming phone, shows clips of young people attending important personal and world events and celebrations. The voiceover references staying true to yourself and moving forward — two themes that OnePlus’ Head of Global and co-founder, Carl Pei, says are integral to the OnePlus Nord’s identity.

Android Authority talked with Pei, as well as VP of OnePlus France, Akis Evangelidis, ahead of the teaser’s reveal. You can read some of the key takeaways from that interview here, where we discuss the core target market for the OnePlus Nord (spoiler: it’s not die-hard OnePlus fans) and the decision making behind dropping to a mid-range processor. We’ll be publishing more insights from our chat later today and tomorrow, so be sure to check back for more on the OnePlus Nord very soon.

Some OnePlus 8 Pro units can’t play Netflix in HD, users report


OnePlus 8 Pro screen in hand

  • OnePlus 8 Pro users are reporting issues with watching Netflix content in HD.
  • This issue started with update version 15.5.5.
  • OnePlus is telling those affected to ship phones back to the factory.

After a recent update, some OnePlus 8 Pro users are reporting seeing Netflix videos in SD when they clearly shouldn’t.

We received a report from a reader named Nicholas who experienced an issue watching Netflix with the OnePlus 8 Pro. Many users are also reporting it on the OnePlus community forum. Apparently, this issue started happening with version 15.5.5, but users have reported that it persisted in version 15.5.6. Users on the forum first reported the problem as far back as May 2, so it has been floating around for a while.

The OnePlus 8 Pro is having an issue with displaying HD video on services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. There’s a Widevine DRM issue, where it’s downgrading from L3 to L1. When the device enters this security level, it’s unable to stream HD and HDR content from various services, which is unfortunate for users looking to take advantage of the gorgeous display on the OnePlus 8 Pro.

Windvine is a Google-owned service that’s designed to provide various encryption schemes and hardware security to distribute video content to consumer devices. It’s helpful for a service like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, as they can prevent unauthorized users from accessing content.

However, with this issue, users who should have access to HD content aren’t getting it because Windvine thinks they are not authorized.

We have reached out to OnePlus for comment on the issue and will update this article once we hear back.

OnePlus 8/ 8 Pro getting new software updates, but no mention of a display fix


Update, May 5, 2020 (2:20AM ET): OnePlus is reportedly rolling out another update for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. The new Oxygen OS 10.5.6.IN11AA for the OnePlus 8 Pro and 10.5.5.IN21AA for the OnePlus 8 brings some system and camera improvements.

The changelog doesn’t clearly verify if it fixes the ongoing display problems on the phones, especially the OnePlus 8 Pro. The previous update (read original article below) fixed the green tint issue on the OnePlus 8 Pro for some users, but the black crush issue wasn’t resolved. The latter was initially thought to be a hardware problem, although OnePlus has since claimed that it’s indeed a software problem too.

The latest software update mentions that it fixes known issues, but the language is very generic and doesn’t really point to a display fix. You can see the changelog for the update below.

Oxygen OS 10 5 6 for OnePlus 8 ProAndroid Sage

Meanwhile, some users who have received the new update are not too happy with it. A user on Reddit says that the update fixes the green tint issue on the OnePlus 8 Pro when DC Dimming is switched on, but it reappears when DC Dimming is switched off. Another user on OnePlus forums reports that the camera on the OnePlus 8 Pro has become worse since the update and has resulted in images showing random flares. The experience, however, might not be the same for all users.

The new OnePlus 8/8 Pro updates are reportedly rolling out in parts of US and Europe right now. An official announcement from OnePlus and wider availability can be expected soon.


Welcome to the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro update hub. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about the latest Android updates for the two devices, including their current versions and when future updates are likely to arrive.

Both the 8 and 8 Pro run OxygenOS, OnePlus’ proprietary Android skin. OxygenOS is known for fast updates that come for a very long time, so be sure to bookmark this page and visit often.

OnePlus 8 Pro Killer flagship
OnePlus is all grown up. With the OnePlus 8 Pro, you get an unabashed flagship, with all the bells and whistles. Powerful specs, an amazing display, fast wireless charging, and water resistance make the OnePlus 8 Pro a great alternative to the Galaxy S20 Plus, and it’s up to $ 300 cheaper.

OnePlus 8 Snapdragon 865 on the cheap
The OnePlus 8 sticks to the formula that has made OnePlus so successful. It gets you the latest processing package, a versatile camera, and a beautiful display, running the smooth Oxygen OS. You miss out on wireless charging and the official IP rating, but for what it offers the OnePlus 8 is an attractive deal.


OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro updates

  • Current stable version: Android 10
  • When will the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro get Android 11? September 2020 (estimated)

The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro launched on April 14, 2020. Both launched with the latest version of Android out-of-the-box: Android 10. We expect both devices to receive at least two major Android updates in the future — Android 11 in 2020 and Android 12 in 2021.

Days after the phones launched, OnePlus rolled out the Oxygen OS 10.5.4 update for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. It was a minor update, but brought Google’s Live Caption feature to the phones. It also enhanced support for the OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z earbuds, optimized the cameras and fingerprint sensor, improved system stability and more.

However, a bunch of users started reporting the appearance of a green tint on the displays of their phones. Some also reported a black crush issue which made dark areas of the screen lose detail.

OnePlus then rolled out Oxygen OS 10.5.5 for both the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. The update sort of fixed the green tint problem for some, but the black crush issue remained.

The changelog was also tight-lipped about the display problems. The only indication on it related to the display was a pointer noting “optimized the display effects,” which doesn’t clearly mean the green tint or black crush issue.

How fast is OnePlus’ Warp Charge 30 Wireless?


OnePlus 8 Pro on warp charge pad 3

One of the OnePlus 8 Pro’s nifty features is support for Warp Charge 30 wireless charging. This proprietary wireless charging tech from OnePlus requires you to purchase a specific wireless charger from the company. In exchange, you have 30W wireless charging that can hit 50% charge in  just 30 minutes, according to OnePlus. That’s just a fraction slower than the wired version of Warp Charge 30, which hits 50% in 23 minutes. The OnePlus 8 Pro also supports Qi, but at much slower charging speeds.

Of course, we don’t like to take any company claims at face value. Plus, there’s more to the whole charging picture than just hitting 50%, such as time to full charge. So we’re going to dive into our data to see how Warp Charge 30 Wireless and wired compare.

Wired vs wireless charging times

Let’s dive straight into the numbers. Collecting the charging data is simple enough, we discharge the phone fully and then track the time taken to fill the battery. We made sure to turn Optimized Charging off to see the fastest possible charge time using the technology.

Despite both charging methods boasting 30W of power, wired charging is notably faster. Time to full charge takes pretty much bang-on an hour, while wireless charging is about 15 minutes slower. The two charging methods start out quite close together up to the first 30%, before gradually drifting apart in charge time for higher capacities. Both also slow down rather similarly for the last 10%. We also see that OnePlus’ claims about hitting 50% charge in just 29 minutes for wireless and 50% in 23 minutes for wired hold up.

The OnePlus charging dock features a built-in fan to help with heat dissipation by blowing a small amount of air across the back of the phone. It’s whisper-quiet and I didn’t notice any heating issues while charging wirelessly. If you’re worried about heat and battery longevity, you can leave OnePlus’ optimized charging setting on to reduce battery load overnight even when charging wirelessly.

The key takeaway is that both Warp Charge 30 versions will have your phone back up and running in no time. But wired charging is still the fastest for quick top-ups from empty.

I also tested standard Qi charging to see how slower it is compared to OnePlus’ Warp Charge 30 Wireless. I didn’t plot the whole time because, frankly, it took far too long. 4 hours and 14 minutes to charge with what I presume is about 10W Qi charging from a Google Pixel Stand is completely impractical. It couldn’t even hit 50% after an hour and a half. OnePlus’ proprietary solution is much better for a quick top-up throughout the day, even compared to the fastest 15W Qi solutions out there.

Why is 30W wireless slower than 30W wired?

OnePlus 8 Pro Warp Charge 30 Wireless box

15 minutes doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a quite-significant 25% increase in full charge time from the move to wireless. However, it’s not necessarily obvious why 30W wired charging is a fair bit faster than 30W wireless charging. The key is understanding that the rating doesn’t necessarily relate to the power that makes its way to your smartphone.

The wattage rating usually refers to the amount of power consumed by the wall plug, but not all of that power makes its way to the handset. With any type of charging, power can be lost across the power transistors and even the wire from plug to phone.

Wireless transfer across the air sees an even larger transmission loss. The conductive transmitter and receiver coils are nowhere near 100% efficient, so power is lost as part of the wireless transmission, often in the form of heat. With this in mind, wireless will always be slower than wired for the same power.


Although not quite as fast as wired charging, Warp Charge 30 Wireless does a good job marrying fast charging speeds with the convenience of wireless. The only drawback is that you’ll have to pay an extra $ 69.95 for OnePlus’ charging dock if you want wireless charging speeds that are miles faster than standard Qi.

Charge your OnePlus 8 Pro from 0% to 50% in just 29 min with the OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger. Also supports Qi to charge your other wireless gadgets, albeit at slower speeds.

This could be the OnePlus 8 Pro fast charging wireless dock


OnePlus 8 charging dock side profile leakEvan Blass

The OnePlus 8 series is coming in hot and leaks just don’t seem to be subsiding. The latest one is a series of images showing the alleged wireless charging dock, a screen protector, and a transparent bumper case for the OnePlus 8 flagships.

The leak comes courtesy of tipster Evan Blass who also previously outed images of official case variants for the OnePlus 8 line.

While images of the OnePlus 8 screen protector and transparent bumper case are pretty self explanatory, the wireless charging dock is something we’ve not seen from OnePlus before (see images above and below).

This is the first time OnePlus is incorporating wireless charging on its phones and as per previous rumors the OnePlus 8 Pro will feature 30W wireless charging. We still don’t know for sure if the same tech will also be incorporated on the standard OnePlus 8 variant, but rumored specs suggest otherwise.

What’s that at the back?

When seen from the front, the supposed OnePlus wireless charging dock seems to have a tiny LED indicator to show when the phone is on charge. A Warp Charge symbol with battery percentage is also seen on the display of the OnePlus 8 phone placed on the dock.

OnePlus 8 wireless charging dockEvan Blass

The back of the white colored dock shows something that looks like a speaker grille. However, it could very well be a cooling vent with an in-built fan to keep the phones cool.

Wireless charging usually tends to heat up phones more than wired charging and a cooling vent would make a lot of sense, especially if the phones are equipped with high-speed wireless charging.

On the other hand, a speaker at the back could make the OnePlus 8 phones function more like a smart display. It could allow users to have a better hand-free experience while taking calls or listening to music and other audio content.

Nevertheless, we’re just happy that OnePlus could finally be giving us wireless charging on a flagship. The company is now a part of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) which  supports the Qi wireless charging standard. So it would be reasonable to assume that whichever OnePlus 8 phone gets wireless charging will also work with other third-party Qi wireless chargers.

Do you like this apparent OnePlus wireless charging dock? How much do you think the company should charge for it? Drop us a line in the comments section below.

OnePlus 8 series to challenge the Galaxy S20 with its own 120Hz Fluid Display


OnePlus display

OnePlus has developed a new QHD+ OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate that will debut with the OnePlus 8 series. The company revealed specifications and features for the new display at its screen technology event held in Shenzhen, China earlier today.

With a 120Hz refresh rate, the content on the display is refreshed 120 times per second. This makes for smoother playback as well as an overall fluid OS navigation experience. We’ve previously seen 120Hz screens on the likes of the Asus ROG Phone 2 and Razer Phone 2.

OnePlus 120Hz Fluid Display specs

According to information trickling in on Twitter and Chinese social media website Weibo, the display will feature a 10-bit color depth. This means that it will be able to produce a palette of 1.07 billion colors as opposed to an 8-bit panel which can display 16.7 million colors. Having a 10-bit panel is also necessary for true HDR 10 implementation.

The Verge reports that OnePlus worked with Samsung to develop the new display. The publication also reports that the company has done work on top of Android to improve animations like core OS gestures.

Additionally, OnePlus aims to have a 0.8 JNCD rating for every 120Hz display it produces. JNCD stands for Just Noticeable Color Differences and is a measurement of the bare minimum color difference a human eye can spot. By comparison, the Galaxy Note 10 Plus has a 0.4 JNCD, which means it displays colors that are near perfect.

Machine translation of the company’s presentation slides suggests that the new display will use a dedicated MEMC chip. MEMC stands for Motion Estimation and Motion Compensation and is usually a technology available on televisions. It inserts new frames between existing ones in a video to decrease motion blur.

OnePlus’ MEMC tech can apparently upscale low frame rate videos to a maximum of 120 frames per second, making the picture smoother and more natural. If this really works as intended, it could mean a much better gaming experience on future OnePlus phones.

Further, OnePlus’ 120Hz display has a touch sample rate of 240Hz and can apparently hit 1,000 nits peak brightness. It is optimized by something OnePlus calls Smooth Chain technology. However, details are scarce at the moment thanks to the official information being available only in Chinese.

Will the OnePlus 8 get a 120Hz display?

Speaking to The Verge, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that the company’s next phone would tout the new display tech, even going as far as to say that it will be “the best smartphone display in 2020.”

That’s quite the claim! We just hope the high refresh rate displays are well optimized for power consumption. Current OnePlus devices with a 90Hz display experience significant battery drainage when the refresh rate is set to 90Hz.

OnePlus is expected to detail its display tech even further very soon. We’ll let you know as soon as we have the latest.

OnePlus sweetens the pot for Indian buyers by launching OnePlus Care


OnePlus 7T camera detail angle frosted silver

OnePlus has launched an after-sales service program in India called OnePlus Care. The new initiative from OnePlus is designed for existing and new OnePlus smartphone buyers. The company is offering buyers three exclusive perks through the OnePlus Care program at no cost whatsoever.

Extended Warranty

The first benefit of enrolling in the OnePlus Care program is a free one-year extended warranty on OnePlus smartphones. The offer is applicable for phones still under the original warranty period.

Smartphones eligible for the one-year free extended warranty include ⁠the following:

  • OnePlus 6T
  • OnePlus 7
  • OnePlus 7 Pro
  • OnePlus 7T
  • Any future phone that follows.

By getting it for free, you end up saving anywhere between Rs 1,299 (~$ 18) and Rs 2,039 (~$ 28) for an extended warranty if you have devices ranging from the OnePlus 6T to OnePlus 7T.

50% off on battery replacement

The second benefit of enrolling in OnePlus Care in India is a 50% discount on battery replacement. This is valid on the OnePlus 3/3T/5/5T/6 smartphones. The original battery replacement cost for these devices ranges from Rs 1,651 to Rs 1,607 ($ 22-23 approximately). This has now been set at an even Rs 600 (~$ 9) for all the above mentioned phones.

Upgrade Plan

Perhaps the juiciest benefit of OnePlus Care is the upgrade program. OnePlus users in India will now be able to upgrade their current device to the latest one with attractive trade-in offers.

The trade-in value starts at up to Rs 5,400 (~$ 75) for the OnePlus 3 and goes all the way up to Rs 32,200 for the OnePlus 7 Pro (~$ 452). You can check out all the trade-in prices on offer under the OnePlus Care program here.

How to get OnePlus Care in India?

To avail all the benefits of OnePlus Care, you need to download the OnePlus Care app and sign-in using your OnePlus account. You can then link your OnePlus devices and redeem the benefits. If you’ve been using the old OnePlus Care App, uninstall it and then download the updated app.

The company says you can link multiple devices to one OnePlus account. Those going in for battery replacements are requested to make a reservation in advance through the OnePlus Care app.

OnePlus 3 exchange offer in India can get you a discount of up to 100%


oneplus 3 gold aa (12 of 22)
Taking a leaf out of the multitude of exchange offers available for Indian smartphone buyers across sales on Amazon India, Flipkart, and other e-commerce platforms, Chinese upstart OnePlus has also jumped on the exchange bandwagon. The company has announced an upgrade program which will allow you to turn in your old smartphone for the newly-launched OnePlus 3 and get a discount of as much as 100%.

With the OnePlus 3, the Chinese smartphone maker has certainly come a long way since the launch of their first smartphone, the OnePlus One, back in 2014. Its powerful features like the massive 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 820 processor, 64GB ROM, and the quick charging ‘Dash Charge’ technology ensure that the OnePlus 3 still gets to give other more expensive flagships a run for their money.

oneplus 3 gold aa (14 of 22)

It’s now also much easier to get your hands on the OnePlus 3 because you no longer need an invite, unlike in the case of its predecessors. After being recently launched in India, the OnePlus 3 became available for purchase exclusively on Amazon India where it currently sells for Rs 27,999 (~$ 420).

If paying a midrange price for a flagship device still doesn’t appeal to you, OnePlus is now sweetening the deal by offering an exchange program so that you can swap your old smartphone and upgrade to the new OnePlus 3. Starting today, you can return any old smartphone and get a discount of up to 100% of the value of OnePlus 3. The exact amount of the cashback will depend upon the condition of your old smartphone, which will be evaluated and approved by the company’s program partner, Cashify.

oneplus 3 review aa-5

If you want to upgrade to the OnePlus 3 using the exchange offer, you’ll first need to visit Cashify’s webpage to check the replacement value of your old smartphone. Next, you’ll have to purchase the OnePlus 3 from Amazon India and take down the order ID. Finally, you can accept the T&C on Amazon India, after which you’ll be redirected to the Cashify page where you’ll have to input key details of your old smartphone, check your pin code serviceability, and confirm the buyback price and pickup time for your device.

A Cashify representative will then visit you at your submitted address, and pay for your old smartphone after examining the condition of the device. The upgrade offer is available in selected Indian cities of Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Pune, Faridabad, Bangalore, Ghaziabad, Hyderabad, Secunderabad, Mumbai, Chennai, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Lucknow, and Ahmedabad.

OnePlus 3 videos

The exchange offer could be a sign that OnePlus is feeling the heat from other Chinese manufacturers in the Indian market, with budget-conscious Indian consumers warming up to smartphones from OEMs like Xiaomi, Lenovo, OPPO, Vivo, Huawei, Gionee, and LeEco. Even as Chinese smartphone companies slug it out in the Indian market by throwing in more offers and discounts, Indian consumers are obviously happy to get a bigger bang for their buck.

Do you plan to exchange your old smartphone and upgrade to the new OnePlus 3? Let us know in the comments below!
