The OnePlus Nord Is Such a Tease

  The OnePlus Nord Is Such a Tease As good as the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are, the OnePlus Nord might be the company’s most exciting phone of the year. Not only does the Nord include a lot of the specs and features we love about the OnePlus 8, but its combination of price and components also represents a return to form for OnePlus, whose phones have been getting increasingly more expensive for the last few years. The downside is that the Nord doesn’t really work in the U.S., and it’s unclear if it ever will.

The midrange OnePlus Nord is due to be officially announced with an augmented reality event on July 21st, the company announced today. OnePlus said the Nord will be a “more affordable” device compared to its recent flagships, and it’s initially due for release in Europe and India. Along with the news of the launch, the company has also released the second part of its documentary series about the phone today.

OnePlus says you’ll be able to use its app to view the launch event in augmented reality on July 21st at 3PM BST / 10AM ET / 7AM PT. The app will be available for both iOS and Android. OnePlus is also producing physical invitations to the event, which it says will give people a “unique hands-on experience” of the device in AR. Physical invitations will contain a QR code that you can scan to access the AR experience. This isn’t the first time OnePlus has experimented with new formats for its product launches; it used a virtual reality event to announce the OnePlus 2 in 2015.

  Vikings place first-round pick Justin Jefferson, three other rookies on Reserve/COVID-19 list It is not certain if Jefferson and the three other rookies have contracted the virus. Players must be placed on the COVID-19/reserve list if they test positive or have come in contact with an infected person. The Vikings announced earlier Monday their infection control officer tested positive for the coronavirus.The Vikings used one of their two first-round picks on Jefferson, who will be expected to fill the role Stefon Diggs occupied for years opposite Adam Thielen. He is coming off a dominant senior season at LSU, when he caught 111 passes for 1,540 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Although its official launch date is still a couple of weeks away, we already have a pretty good idea about what form the OnePlus Nord will take, thanks to a combination of official announcements and unofficial leaks. As well as confirming its name, OnePlus has also revealed that the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 765G 5G processor, and it will cost less than $500.

When an image of an early prototype was briefly shown in a recent video from OnePlus, it appeared to have dual selfie cameras contained within a hole-punch notch. Meanwhile, the rear of the device has been shown with a vertically orientated camera bump on its left.

Unofficially, reports also suggest that the phone will feature a 6.55-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 4,300mAh battery with 30W fast charging, according to XDA-Developers.

One Phillies coach, one clubhouse staffer test positive for COVID-19 .
The plan had been for the Phillies to resume play on Saturday. Whether that is now in jeopardy isn’t known. The organization has already dealt with some infections earlier this year, but managed to avoid further spread within the club.This is worrisome news on several levels. First and foremost, it’s concerning to see two more individuals in the game carrying this disease. Hopefully they’ll both make a swift and full recovery.Beyond that, it’s obviously concerning to see that spread (presumably) occurred between the teams.
