OnePlus India Twitter handle on Thursday announced the OnePlus Summer Launch Event, and soon after, a dedicated webpage on Amazon India went live. On registering interest in the upcoming event, Amazon India subscribers get a message confirming the handset - OnePlus Nord CE 5G.

The company earlier in the week had posted a cryptic tweet teasing the upcoming launch, and a lot of reports claimed that it could be the first hint about the OnePlus Nord successor. Additionally, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G name was also revealed in a BIS listing that was spotted a few days back. The OnePlus Nord CE 5G name first came to light earlier this month and was initially thought to be a successor to the OnePlus Nord N10 5G.

Tech Radar India first spotted the mention of the OnePlus Nord CE 5G on Amazon. Interestingly, the dedicated page for the OnePlus Nord CE 5G has a codename on the left which might be short for OnePlus Nord Ebba.

We got a glimpse of what was called OnePlus Nord Ebba in March this year, and the leaked photos showed a device that looks quite similar to the original OnePlus Nord with a few changes. Some changes spotted at the time were a single selfie camera embedded in the display, while a triple camera array at the back and an audio jack were claimed to be on the bottom panel.

Based on preliminary leaks, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G is said to come with a 6.4-inch Full-HD+ display with 90Hz and would be powered by Snapdragon 7 series processor. It could launch in 8GB RAM and 12GB RAM options. The smartphone is likely to get a 48-megapixel primary sensor and a 16-megapixel selfie camera. It is likely to launch running OxygenOS 11 out of the box.
