OnePlus had re-entered the sub Rs. 25,000 premium mid-range market with the Nord and attracted a lot of attention. It was well packaged but came with its share of flaws. We now have reports, which show the successor, the Nord 2, on BIS certification. So let’s take a look.
OnePlus Nord 2 India Launch Confirmed
OnePlus launched the Nord last year and which went on to become a popular name in the premium mid-range segment. Earlier, we had also covered some possible rumours on the Nord 2, which now seem to be asserted by the recent BIS certification leak. The leak confirms the India launch.
OnePlus Nord CE 5G, which internationally will succeed Nord N10, was spotted with a codename EBBA and model number EB2101. On the other hand, OnePlus Nord 2 was registered with codename Denniz and model number DN2101.
This was leaked by tipster Mukul Sharma, who added that the official name was still under wraps. But we can safely say that Denniz and EBBA would essentially turn out to be the new Nord and Nord N10 models. So while India was left out, when the Nord N10 and N100 were launched internationally, it seems we might get the successor.
Hardware Rumours For the Nord 2 and Nord CE 5G
The rumour mill around the Nord 2 suggests that the OnePlus Nord 2 will draw power from the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor. The processor is a 6nm chipset and has the ability to support true dual sim 5G. The Nord CE 5G, on the other hand, is speculated to get a 90Hz high refresh panel and 64MP quad-camera set up.
That said, most of the spec details and features remain under wraps. Both the Nord 2 and Nord CE 5G might go on sale in June or July. If that’s the case, we will see OnePlus teasing both devices on various platforms soon enough.
The OnePlus Nord is powered by the Snapdragon 765G processor and Adreno 620 GPU. It’s available in 6GB, 8GB or 12GB RAM options coupled with upto 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage. The 4115mAh battery supports Warp Charge 30T. The display is a 6.44″ 90Hz AMOLED panel with Gorilla Glass 5 protection. There’s a quad-camera setup at the back with a 48MP IMX586 main camera. Prices start at Rs. 24,999.
