[* black] Although the OnePlus Nord carries no official IP rating, it does use rubber connector gaskets found in the IP68-certified OnePlus 8 Pro—so it ''may ''have inherited some water and dust resistance.
[* icon_note] Gaskets are cheap, but the actual IP testing and certification costs a pretty penny, which OnePlus decided to forego this time. Good on them for including a little protection, even if it's not advertised as such.
[* black] Remove two Phillips screws and the motherboard lifts out next, revealing some thermal paste on the back.
[* icon_note] The thermal paste is plopped onto the graphite foil covering the chips, which have additional thermal paste of their own underneath. On the opposite side, the paste transfers heat into a copper element running behind the motherboard and down underneathbetween the battery, behind a cablebattery and display.
