If youâ€™re waiting for OnePlusâ€™s U.S. website to update with ordering information for the new 5G Nord, weâ€™ve got some bad news. Itâ€™s not happening. Not later today or probably ever.
The announcement of the long-rumored and oddly named Nord represents a return to OnePlusâ€™s mid-range mindset, but itâ€™s only launching in Europe and India. And while sales of the OnePlus 8 Pro are reportedly not great, the company isnâ€™t looking to bring the Nord to the States: â€œOur history has shown that focusing on just a few markets first and then expanding has worked well.Â While this new smartphone product line will initially be available in Europe and India, we look forward to bringing more affordable smartphones to North America in the future.â€�
