OnePlus India’s Twitter post also gave us a glimpse at the upcoming budget phone’s design. We can see that it looks very similar to its predecessor, with the power and volume rockers on the left. However, as rumored, the phone doesn’t appear to include an alert slider.
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G is also expected to be similar to the Nord CE 5G in a few other areas. According to recent leaks, the phone will be powered by a 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G chipset. The 6nm chip is expected to be paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of built-in storage.
OnePlus’ answer to the best Android phone on a budget is rumored to feature the same triple-lens camera system on the back with a 64MP primary sensor. Other rumored Nord CE 2 5G specs include a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, a 16MP selfie camera, and a 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging.
With OnePlus and OPPO’s new unified OS delayed until later this year, the phone is likely to ship with Android 12-based OxygenOS 12 out of the box.
