Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus hit us with the news that it’s working on its very first mechanical keyboard. This is extremely off-brand for the company, but none of us are complaining. Now, thanks to MySmartPrice, we have a visual of the upcoming keyboard and a name: the OnePlus Nord keyboard
In case you don’t know, OnePlus has started a partnership program called “OnePlus Featuring.” In this program, the company will partner with different third-party companies to develop different devices far removed from the typical OnePlus ecosystem. The first product from this program is the mechanical keyboard.
We know what the OnePlus Nord keyboard is going to look like
First and foremost, we officially have a name. It was a bit surprising to find out that this will be under the company’s Nord line of other devices. Lately, OnePlus has been paying a lot of attention to its Nord series of products.
With this latest leak, we have our first real visual of the keyboard, and it’s a bit surprising. Based on the promotional material that we’ve seen from OnePlus, it appeared that the keyboard would have a silver metallic color to it. However, based on the leaked live image from the source, it appears that the keyboard will have a turquoise color.
The chassis of the keyboard and most of the keys share the same blue color. The only exception is the escape key sports a reddish color. In the bottom left corner, we see the OnePlus Nord branding. Another defining feature of this keyboard is the encoder knob on the top right.
What are some of the rumored specs?
The OnePlus Nord keyboard will use switches and keys developed by Keychron. Also, they will both be replaceable. This means that you’ll be able to swap out the keys for different colors. Also, there are expected to be different colors available at launch. Other than that, the keyboard will have RGB lights, and you will be able to customize them to your liking.
Price and launch
We don’t have an exact launch date for this keyboard, but we know that OnePlus plans to launch it sometime in February. However, it’s expected to launch alongside the OnePlus 11 5G.
As for the price, the source stated that the keyboard could cost between RS 8,000 and RS 10,000 Indian rupees. That roughly converts to between $96.85 and $121.06.
