To get your teardown's worth, you need a baseline for comparison. Consider last year's OnePlus 7T (left), which looks so superficially similar we're gonna have to make sure we remember to tear down the correct phone. What's different?

First to stick out at you is that camera bump—not only is the underlying hardware different, but it's all migrated to a straight-line configuration on the Nord's left edge.

The earpiece speaker grille also shrunk, and the Nord peers at you with dual hole-punch selfie cams, rather than a teardrop notch.

The bottom edge looks similar (minus some antenna lines) and features a USB-C port, a redesigned speaker port, the SIM tray, and a headphone jack microphone hole.

With the 7T safely set aside, this teardown officially gets underway.
