Alongside the OnePlus 8T, the Chinese giant has taken the wraps off a new OnePlus Nord Special Edition variant it has been teasing over the past week. This is the new Gray Ash color variant, which has been long-rumored to arrive sometime in October.
Now, a lot of you must be wondering, what’s so special about this new OnePlus Nord variant? Well, there’s not a whole lot new here. The device seems to have a new color (but looks similar to the existing gray variant) and a matte finish, which seems to be similar to OnePlus 8 Pro.
Announcing this new color variant, the company on stage said that the OnePlus Nord Gray Ash colorway “combines a raw, industrial vibe with an elegant matte texture, elevating the Nord aesthetic and reaffirming OnePlus’s mission for uncompromising design.” This color variant joins the existing Blue Marble and Gray Onyx variants in India.
