OnePlus is set to launch its next mid-segment smartphone in India in the coming weeks. The company confirmed the device's launch date, to be called the OnePlus Nord CE, for June 10 in the country. The smartphone will be revealed alongside a new OnePlus TV U variant.
Both the OnePlus Nord CE and the new OnePlus TV will be a fresh push from OnePlus in price-conscious markets, including India. Though both of the offerings are anticipated to be attractive to buyers, the OnePlus Nord CE has been long-awaited in the market, with months of speculations leading to its build-up.
Even the name of the smartphone has been hinted at a number of times in the last few months. Among the limited information yet confirmed, the company has revealed that this name will appear indeed by OnePlus Nord CE, with the CE representing Core Edition.
For now, not much is known about the device but taking a look at the rumours posted over long, here is what we can expect to see on the upcoming OnePlus smartphone.
OnePlus Nord CE price and availability
Although the company will only confirm the price of the OnePlus Nord CE upon its launch, it has shared some information on the availability of the device.
As per this, the OnePlus Nord CE pre-order in India will begin on June 11, which is a day after the launch event, exclusively for Red Cable Club members. An open sale will follow this for the smartphone on June 16.
We can take a hint at its price from what was said about the device by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau recently. Lau hinted that the OnePlus Nord CE is a phone "that's a little more than you'd expect, at an even more affordable price." We can thus expect the smartphone to be launched at a lower price than what we saw in the case of OnePlus Nord last year.
This means that the smartphone can be priced at around Rs 25,000 upon its launch. This, of course, is completely speculative as of now. It is expected to go on sale on Amazon India as well as the OnePlus India website on June 16.
OnePlus Nord CE specifications
The OnePlus Nord CE will come with a 6.4-inch display with a Full-HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate as per the speculations to date. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 series chipset and will feature at least 6GB RAM for the base variant.
Other than this, the smartphone is tipped to feature a quad-camera setup on the back, just like the OnePlus Nord. This setup will possibly include a 48-megapixel primary lens along with an ultra-wide lens, a depth sensor, a macro lens as well as Dual LED Flash.
It can be expected that the OnePlus Nord CE will come with a battery of over 4,000 mAh capacity that will also support Warp Charge fast charging. The device will also support 5G connectivity.
Note that none of these specifications is official as of now, and we will only get to know more once the smartphone is launched in the country on June 10.
