OnePlus Nord is getting a new finish called ‘Gray Ash’ alongside the OnePlus 8T. The phone was launched in July this year and at that time it was made available in Blue Marble and Gray Onyx colour options. The new colour finish has been introduced ahead of the festive season to give consumers more options to choose from.
