Carl Pei says the OnePlus Nord is coming to the US — just maybe not the same Nord

OnePlus hyped the Nord up for a long time, so it's a good thing that the phone lives up to expectations. For £379, this is one hell of a phone, but those of us that don't live in European or Indian markets have been left out.
