If it takes a path to which its historical fans are not very receptive, OnePlus is a big hit thanks to its smartphones entry-level and mid-range. And the future OnePlus Nord 2 CE could well continue this legacy.
Successor, you guessed it, of the OnePlus Nord CE 5G and distant cousin of the OnePlus Nord 2, this new model is expected for the beginning of next year. But a leak already lets you appreciate all or part of its technical sheet.
The smartphone of continuity
Spotted on the site of the Indian certification body BIS, a certain OnePlus code name “Ivan” has appeared to observers, who see nothing less than the Nord 2 CE (Core Edition) model.
It must be said that the characteristics then unveiled by the informant Yogesh Brar stick perfectly to what we can expect from such a device. According to him, the OnePlus Nord 2 CE will be equipped with a 6.4 “AMOLED screen (Full HD +, 90 Hz, fingerprint sensor under the screen), 6 to 12 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of storage, a 4500 mAh rechargeable battery at 65 W, and a trio of 64 + 8 + 2-megapixel cameras (16 megapixels on the front).
In other words: a technical sheet extremely close to what the current OnePlus Nord CE 5G offers. With the detail that this new model should embark a SoC MediaTek Dimensity 900 instead of the Snapdragon 750G – which suggests a small rise in range.
Loaded schedule for OnePlus
You will understand, do not expect a revolution on this OnePlus Nord 2 CE. The brand opts for continuity, but we can only understand this choice when we remember the warm welcome that had been given to the first model.
As to when this mid-range smartphone will be launched, we can only speculate. The most plausible release window would be the first quarter of 2022, which would allow the manufacturer to beat the iron while it is hot after the OnePlus 10 is announced next January. Some even speak of a joint launch of the OnePlus Nord 2 CE and the OnePlus 10.
Moreover, the price of the smartphone should remain in the nails of the current model. As a reminder, the OnePlus Nord CE is offered at € 399 on the manufacturer’s official website.
