OnePlus Promises 4 Android OS Updates for Nord 4

OnePlus on Thursday announced its commitment to long-term software support for its upcoming OnePlus Nord 4 smartphone. The company plans to provide Android updates for four years after the device launches. The phone maker added that it will offer security patches for a period of six years. The OnePlus Nord 4 will be launched in India on July 16 and the event will be live-streamed on the company’s official YouTube channel. Ahead of the event, pricing details for India, including debit card offers, have surfaced online.

Meanwhile, according to the leak, the upcoming OnePlus Nord model is expected to be more affordable than last year’s OnePlus Nord 3.

OnePlus stresses that this expanded software support will ensure the longevity and security of its latest addition to its mid-range smartphone lineup, the Nord 4. The company says that the device has earned the TÜV SÜD Fluency 72 Month A certification, indicating that the phone can perform for an extended period of time.

The Nord 4 will also feature OnePlus’ proprietary Battery Health Engine, which claims to maintain charging efficiency over time. The technology is certified to withstand 1,600 full charge cycles, improving the long-term usability of the device.

Like its predecessors, the Nord 4 will be available for purchase on e-commerce platform Amazon India. Additional products expected to be launched at the event, including the OnePlus Pad 2 tablet, OnePlus Nord Buds 3 Pro, and OnePlus Watch 2R, are likely to be made available through various online retailers.

OnePlus Buds 3 Pro to Launch Alongside Watch 2R, Nord 4

OnePlus has shared a new teaser image featuring the word “Nord” in silver, hinting at the launch of the Nord 4. The company has promised to provide more information in the coming days. The event is said to officially introduce the OnePlus Buds 3 Pro and OnePlus Watch 2R alongside the Nord 4.

The launch event, held in the summer of last year, focused on Nord-branded products such as smartphones and true wireless stereo (TWS) headphones.

OnePlus has announced that its Summer Launch Event will take place in Milan, Italy on July 16. The company’s metal teaser card reads: “Some say it’s impossible to build a smartphone with the strength, complexity, and enduring quality of metal in the 5G era. We say… Never Settle.”

Some leaks and rumors suggest that the OnePlus Nord 4 could be a rebranded version of the China-spec OnePlus Ace 3V. The China-spec model features a 6.74-inch OLED flat display with 1.5K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, 1,100 nits HBM brightness, and 2160Hz PWM dimming. The OnePlus Ace 3V is IP65 rated for dust and splash resistance.

OnePlus Ace 3V is equipped with Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3 SoC, up to 16GB LPDDR5X RAM, and 512GB UFS 4.0 storage. This OnePlus device runs on Android 14 operating system.
