Two more OnePlus Nord phones are on the way: Billie 1 & Billie 2

The OnePlus Nord has been received extremely well since its announcement in mid-July, but there are no plans to release it in the United States. Instead, OnePlus is working on something else and today Max J. has partnered up with Concept Creator to provide some clarity on the matter.
Co-founder Carl Pei confirmed in an interview recently that OnePlus is redying a different Nord smartphone for the United States. As it turns out, the company is actually developing two OnePlus Nord smartphones that are known as 'Billie 1' and 'Billie 2' internally.

These devices, which could debut later this year alongside the flagship OnePlus 8T series, have been nicknamed 'Aurora' by Max J. and Concept Creator in honor of the Northern Lights. Do note, however, that it's unclear which Nord marketing name OnePlus will choose for them.

In terms of their respective designs, there is no concrete information available at this stage. But that hasn't stopped Concept Creator from creating some cool concept renders of the two Billie smartphones based on what is currently expected from them.

The OnePlus Nord is already considered to be a relatively cheap smartphone, but OnePlus Billie 1 and Billie 2 will take that idea to an entirely new level by cutting back on some features and being even more affordable.

Again, do remember that no information about their designs is available at this stage. But Max J. and Concept Creator envision Billie 1 and Billie 2 with dual-camera and triple-camera systems respectively rather than the quad-camera setup that OnePlus fitted the original Nord with.

That would be coupled with similar front panel designs that are centered around a punch hole camera. To keep costs down, though, the resolution and refresh rate are likely to be downgraded while the size of bezels could increase.

The existing OnePlus Nord boasts Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on both the front and back, though with the OnePlus Billie 1 and Billie 2 this added protection might be removed. The rear glass could even be replaced with glossy plastic on at least one of the models.
