OnePlus is still dribbling out particulars of its sub-$500 Nord in advance of the phone’s July 21st launch, and its most up-to-date may perhaps be noteworthy if you loathe redundant pre-mounted applications. The corporation has revealed (by means of9to5Google) that the Nord will use Google’s cellphone, Messages apps instead than OnePlus’ very own. It’ll appear with Duo, much too. The telephone maker wasn’t certain about the explanations why, but claimed the Google apps would produce the “smoothest” practical experience.
Raw general performance shouldn’t be an issue — the Nord will use a Snapdragon 765G that can very easily take care of a dialer or text chat. This does, however, give Nord entrepreneurs access to RCS messaging, the deep integration of Duo video clip chats and a common calling practical experience. We would not expect OnePlus to make similar improvements elsewhere, but it’s clear the corporation is prepared to use inventory applications if it thinks they’ll provide far more customers into the fold.
