A leak last month claimed that the OnePlus Nord would feature a dual camera setup at the front, a first for the company. Today, OnePlus confirmed that its upcoming smartphone will, indeed, come with a dual selfie snapper.
In an Instagram post, the Chinese phone maker revealed that the Nord's front facing camera will feature an ultra-wide angle lens in addition to its main camera. The auxiliary lens, in particular, will feature a 105-degree field of view. Although OnePlus did not disclose further details about the front camera resolution of the handset, previous rumors had it that the main sensor will be a 32MP selfie shooter complemented by an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera.
OnePlus noted that around 3,000 people are killed every year due to accidents resulting from the reckless use of selfie sticks. In the video, the company posits an ultra-wide angle selfie camera as a replacement for that accessory. At the back of the device, the Nord is also said to feature a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. The phone will debut on July 21.
