The OnePlus Nord officially launched at OnePlus’s online AR event on 21 July. The aggressively priced 5G devices with enviable specs officially go on general sale on 4 August – but you can get a discount before then.
Latest update: GearBest now has up to over £70 off the phones (see below). Meanwhile, John Lewis is offering £30 off Nord handsets to My John Lewis members on 31 July only (more on this below).
Here we’re keeping track of OnePlus Nord pricing, SIM-free offers, and contract deals so you can pick up a stellar deal on the new handsets.

Price comparison from over 24,000 stores worldwide View more prices
The OnePlus Nord phones are available at two price-points depending on the configuration you choose. In the UK and Europe, the prices are as follows:
128GB storage and 8GB RAM for £379/€399
256GB storage and 12GB RAM for £469/€499
Both models are available in Blue Marble or Gray Onyx. The phone will be available across Europe as well. The phones will not be available in the US.
OnePlus heavily undercuts competitors at this pricing by offering premium quality specs well under £500 – undeniably threatening the flagship model of paying upwards of £1,000 for slightly better performance. Read the full review where it received a full five stars.
While you don’t get the Snapdragon 865 processor found in phones like the Galaxy S20 range or even OnePlus’s own OnePlus 8/8 Pro phones – you get a 765G processor instead – the Nord phones tick off a long list of impressive features, such as a 90Hz AMOLED display, a 48Mp-led quad-camera set-up, a huge 4115mAh battery, and 30W fast charging.
