Meet the OnePlus Nord SE, the Smartphone That Never Launched

OnePlus is long-rumored to have been working on a special edition model of the OnePlus Nord called the OnePlus Nord SE — made in collaboration with esteemed designer Joshua Vides, the founder of design studio Reality To Idea — that would have been offered in one configuration: 12GB + 256GB, priced at €499. Now, Recalled has learned that the handset has been scrapped but not before regional OnePlus warehouses received stock of the device.

Recalled also obtained images of the handset, glimpse at what could have been. Unlike special edition handsets we’ve seen from other manufacturers, like Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS, the OnePlus Nord SE is identical to the standard OnePlus Nord in form and function with the only differences being it would have shipped in some unique packaging with a QR code to download a special wallpaper and some special accessories.
