The OnePlus Nord price will be “below $500”. The announcement was easy to miss, however, showing up in an Instagram story on the firm’s ‘oneplus zlitething’ account.

The news coincides with the confirmation of the OnePlus Nord name for the affordable smartphone, which was previously rumored to be called both the OnePlus Z and OnePlus 8 Lite.
With a price tag of under $500 (around £410, AU$730), the OnePlus Nord will be comfortably cheaper than the OnePlus 8, which starts at $699 / £599 (about AU$1,100).
While OnePlus hasn’t confirmed the exact OnePlus price, we wouldn’t be surprised if “below $500” translates to $499.
How does the OnePlus Nord price compare?
The sub-$500 OnePlus price tag positions the phone in a highly competitive area of the market.
The Google Pixel 3a XL starts at $479 / £469, and while Apple’s new iPhone SE 64GB starts at $399 / £419 / AU$749, that price rises to $449 / £469 / AU$829 and $549 / £569 / AU$999 for the 128GB and 256GB models respectively.

If the OnePlus comes with at least 128GB of storage, then its price point will put in squarely in competition with those phones.
