The OnePlus Nord CE has been just launched by the company, but that's not the only OnePlus device we have heard about all this while. If you don't get the reference, let me tell you that OnePlus Nord 2 is arriving soon. The OnePlus Nord successor has been subjected to plenty of leaks, but it seems like we have the real meat now.
A fresh leak has popped up to detail all the key specs of the OnePlus Nord 2. But we still don't have any credible design leaks. That being said, we did see a few renders of a OnePlus device codenamed Ebba, but we aren't sure if that's the upcoming OnePlus Nord.
The OnePlus Nord 2 could be the first OnePlus smartphone to be powered by a Mediatek SoC. Various leaks confirm that the Dimensity 1200 SoC will be powering this smartphone. It is expected to make its way in July this year. Keeping that in mind, we decided to detail everything about the OnePlus Nord 2.
--It's already been a year since the highly appreciated OnePlus Nord arrived. And fans are curious as to what OnePlus has to offer with the second-generation Nord. A couple of weeks ago, the brand itself confirmed the existence of the OnePlus Nord 2. The device name surfaced in the new Stadia Premiere Edition promo FAQ section, which is running in the UK, Germany, and France.
--We know that Stadia Promo will be running until September 30. Which presumably confirms that the smartphone will arrive ahead of the given date. As mentioned before, we barely have any information about the design of this smartphone. However, previous leaks hint towards an attractive design, better screen-to-body ratio, and a punch-hole for the selfie shooter on the corner.
--Another interesting leak suggests that OnePlus Nord 2 may feature a camera module similar to the OnePlus 9 Pro. Here the lower right lens will be replaced by an LED.
--A recent spec leak from 91mobile in collaboration with Onleaks helps us with the key specs of this upcoming smartphone. As per the leak, the OnePlus Nord 2 will feature a 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. This display is also supposed to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner for authentication. To remind you, the OnePlus Nord came with a similar display size, specs and authentication type.
--Up until now, we've seen several reports that hint towards the inclusion of Dimensity 1200 in the OnePlus Nord 2. Digital Chat station a few weeks ago mentioned a device powered by Dimensity 1200 SoC with model number MT6893. Further, this leak has been confirmed by Onleaks, who recently revealed the key specs of this device.
--For your information, Dimensity 1200 is an octa-core chipset based on a 6nm manufacturing process and clocked at 3GHz. Besides this, the chipset is 5G and Wi-Fi 6 capable. Moreover, the chipset is hinted to be paired with 8GB/12GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of onboard storage.
--In the camera department, the OnePlus Nord 2 is said to feature a 50-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and another 2-megapixel macro lens. Unlike the OnePlus Nord, the upcoming iteration would feature a single 32-megapixel shooter for selfies on the front.
--The OnePlus Nord 2 is also hinted to see a battery change. From what we have heard, the upcoming device will get a bigger 4500mAh battery than the 4115mAh battery on the OnePlus Nord.
The OnePlus Nord 2 is expected to be the successor to the highly popular OnePlus Nord. Previously, it was hinted to arrive in Q2, but that didn't seem to happen. It's tough to predict the exact launch date. However, leaks suggest that OnePlus Nord 2 may arrive in July this year.
OnePlus Nord gained popularity because of its affordable pricing. The Original OnePlus Nord came at a starting price of Rs 25,000 in India. And the brand has recently launched the OnePlus Nord CE 5G at Rs 22,999 to compete with the 5G offerings in the same segment.
From what we have learnt, the OnePlus Nord 2 may not be a huge upgrade to the OnePlus Nord, making us presume that the smartphone will be priced similarly at around Rs 25,000- Rs 30,000 in India.
