  • A OnePlus Nord special edition variant is on the way with the OnePlus 8T.
  • The teasers seemingly hint at a textured sandstone finish.
  • Now, a pulled forum post has revealed more about the device in question.

Update: October 14, 2020 (1:20 AM ET): It seems OnePlus may have jumped the gun on this one. In a now inaccessible forum post, OnePlus has revealed a special edition “Gray Ash” colorway for the Nord. Check out the image below attached to the post.

The photo makes it unclear if the rear also adopts a sandstone texture as teased before. The firm adopted the textured back on the OnePlus One back in 2014.

Original article: October 12, 2020 (2:30 AM ET): OnePlus has something in store for fans who don’t want to break the bank on a OnePlus 8T but might want to snag a new Nord. The company has teased a new special edition OnePlus Nord coinciding with the debut of the new flagship.

Two tweets from OnePlus India and OnePlus’ global accounts hint at a device with a sandstone finish. It could be a hat-tip to one of the OnePlus One’s original colorway options, Sandstone Black.

The OnePlus Nord is currently available in two options: Blue Marble and Gray Onyx, but both are smoothly slathered in Gorilla Glass. The sandstone option could add a more granular feel to the mid-range phone but this would come at the expense of the glass rear plate.

OnePlus hasn’t confirmed that it’ll be a sandstone finish only. The company could spring a surprise with an earthy colorway to match, too.

The new special edition launch may not be the last word from the Nord line this year. The company is rumored to debut two new Nord devices at an event on October 26, both devices appealing to different market rungs with possible US debuts, too.

For now, we can be sure that more details of the OnePlus Nord special edition variant will be revealed on October 14.
