OnePlus is one of the most popular smartphone brands in India at the moment. They are a company that has had a lot of success and even went public earlier this year. As they start to grow and expand, questions arise as to how will they be able to maintain their quality. One of the most important factors for their brand is how well they can sell their smartphones.
A Chinese news site just published the OnePlus Nord 2 5G renders. The phone is rumored to be under development and may launch this year. The OnePlus Nord 2 was unveiled at an event in China on Jan 10. The device is said to be a successor of the OnePlus 5T and will come with a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2340×1080, running on a Snapdragon 855 processor and 8GB RAM. Its battery capacity is said to be 3,300mAh.
The new OnePlus Nord 2 is the successor to the original Nord as its predecessor had some flaws. One of them was that it didn’t have a coating, which meant that the phone’s back would be easily damaged. The new model will have a coating for better protection and will also come with a transparent case for when you need to show off your phone’s design. It will also have an in-display fingerprint scanner and will be the first phone from OnePlus to feature the Snapdragon 855 SoC.
The OnePlus Nord 2 has been rumored to be the successor to the OnePlus 5T. However, recent leaks have indicated a possible shift in tone and design for the new phone. Changes like the camera position and bottom placement of the headphone jack are reported. With these features being shifted from its predecessor, it is likely that there could also be some changes to other aspects of this phone.
Will there be an impact on price and what’s maybe in the pipeline ahead of its release?
The OnePlus 7 Pro is set to be released on May 23rd, but rumors of the OnePlus Nord 2 have been swirling before this. The 5G renders, which are from a French site, seem like they’re from an official presentation as opposed to speculation, but every official release in China has been a little tricky with pricing. Most leaks suggest that the phone will start at approximately 1,500 euros ($1,800) and then go up.
The OnePlus Nord 2 CE 5G renders have been leaked via a Chinese blog. The device is set to launch on May 1st with a price tag of $499 USD
