The OnePlus Nord will have a 105-degree ultrawide selfie camera, which the Chinese phone maker said Monday will save its users from the embarrassment of using a selfie stick. The phone will come with "pretty much everything you could ask for," according to the company.

OnePlus plans to unveil the device at an event on July 21. You can stream the announcement using the OnePlus Nord AR App, available now on Android and iOS . The Nord will be priced "below $500" and is already available for preorder in the UK, as well.
