I wonder what band compatibility is with Canada. Would be interested in importing it.

Looks like price is currently set at € 399.00.

€ 399.00 currently $618 CAD. Not bad.

Pretty good devices, except it's a bit pricey and lack some functionality I expected.

I was a bit diasppointed when I found it lacks wireless charging and 3.5mm headphone jack.
no wireless charging and water resistance, fine, I get it, it's a budget phone, but headphone jack, seriously? If you don't do water resistance, what's the point of removing the headphone?
I really hate that every cellphone companies thesedays try to copy Apple, no matter it's a good design or bad design, they just want to copy it, f**k !!!

price wise, $399 seems a sweet spot, €399 is a bit pricey in my opinion.

OnePlus interview with MKBHD says they don't want to put a 3.5mm headphone jack because it would be thicker.

Apparently, consumers are demanding thinner phones, even if it means sacrificing battery? Who knows...

Is it a coincidence that they also launched their new OnePlus Bud's. LOL

For those that might be interested, I actually placed a pre-order on Amazon . Fr.

Nothing prompted me saying that the phone wouldn't be able to be shipping to my Toronto address so it all seems to have gone through.

Price break down (in euro)
Phone - 332,50
Delivery - 26,06
(chose the 2-4 day delivery, there is a cheaper 5-9 day option)
Import fees - 51,60

Total before visa conversion - 410,16 or roughly $638 CDN.

Still not sure if I did something stupid but the way I look at it I have at least a week to change my mind and cancel the order.

The few concerns I have are:
Will I still receive OTA updates (since there is a NA beta I think I should get this but who knows lol)
Warrantee will probably not transfer over
If I need to repair it, can I go through the CDN OnePlus portal?

I'm sure there are other things to be worried about but at under 700$ CDN I'm taking the chance and hopefully don't get burned. If I do, maybe I can resell to a OnePlus collector lol

Wait, I'm confused, why does OnePlus have a Beta Program for this phone in the US/CAN, but don't have any plans of selling this here? Or is it just that they plan on selling it at some point in the future?

I opened their website on my phone (CA website) and got a massive ad for OnePlus Nord, weird.

As mentioned I think above, it's most likely because the market for OnePlus 8 and the 8 Pro are still strong here and it's better not to disrupt those sales while targeting the mid range market in Europe and India where I think there's a stronger mid range market to compete with.

They mentioned that they would consider the NA market depending on how the sales turn out and something along the lines of future phones under the Nord name? Idk, either way I hope that stirs competition in a better priced mid range market here as it really is missing I think

Mid-ranger market in US accounts for about 10% of the entire smartphone market. Whereas in Europe and India it's much larger, so it makes sense to start there. Could definitely come to NA but Oneplus probably wants to see how well the phone does in other markets.

I'm not paying $1100 for a phone. That's like $500 more I'm willing to pay for a phone.

Right now it's less than $600 in Philippines.

I should've been there by now but you know...

Anyways, the plan was to give my iPhone XR away and buy the Nord there. Oh well.

I noticed the Nord is listed on a few Canadian sites already, any thoughts of ordering it there rather than chancing it from overseas?
