OnePlus Nord 2 specs and other key details

Ahead of its launch, a lot is already known about the OnePlus Nord 2. It is going to be powered by Mediatek Dimensity 1200 AI chipset, which is the reason why it is going to support 5G despite its more affordable price. It is expected that this chipset will be paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. There is also expected to be a 12GB RAM and 256GB storage variant. Additionally, there are going to be multiple colour options, including a shade of red.

It has already been (sort of) confirmed that the OnePlus Nord 2 will have a 6.43-inch screen, which will support HDR 10+ and will have 90Hz refresh rate. It is also almost confirmed that the phone will have Sony IMX 766, a 50-megapixel camera, along with two more rear cameras. On the front, there is going to be a 32-megapixel Sony IMX 616 camera.

As far as the price of the OnePlus Nord 2 5G in India is concerned, it is almost certain that the device will cost close to Rs 30,000. This is because the OnePlus Nord CE is around Rs 20,000, and hence, the Nord 2 is certain to have some gap between the Nord CE and the OnePlus 9R. The 9R sells for Rs 39,999, hence it is safe to assume that the Nord 2 will occupy the mid-point between the CE and the 9R.
