Import OnePlus Nord from the UK to Any Country – Here Is How!

OnePlus has just launched its new mid-price range smartphone, OnePlus Nord. As you probably know, it’s availability for international customers is very limited. We won’t be diving into tech-specs, OnePlus Nord first impressions, etc. (there are more specialized websites for that like AndroidAuthority, Ausdroid, Techradar, The Verge, etc.).

In this “guide”, we are going to show you a convenient way for how you can import OnePlus Nord from the UK to the US, Australia, Japan, and other countries.

Disclaimer: Keep in mind that you won’t be able to get the OnePlus Nord for the same price as it is sold in Europe (399€, approx. £379). You will be required to pay shipping costs and import fees like customs duty and TAX. More about this later in this post.
