However, this similarity in the rear camera setup between the Oppo Reno7 SE 5G and the Nord CE 2 5G isn’t surprising. To recall, past leaks claim that the Nord CE 2 5G will be a rebadged version of the Reno7 SE 5G smartphone. Nevertheless, the OnePlus phone will come with a better camera setup and support faster charging. Aside from that, the Nord CE 2 5G will also retain the 3.5mm headphone jack, according to past leaks. Now, let’s check out the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G phone’s leaked specifications.
Specifications & India Price (Expected)
The OnePlus Nord CE 2 smartphone has already passed through the BIS certification. In other words, the handset is set to launch in India soon. Some reports suggest that it will be priced between INR 24,000 and INR 28,000 in the country. In terms of specifications, the Nord CE 2 5G will reportedly sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that delivers a refresh rate of 90Hz and a Full HD+ resolution. This configuration is similar to other Nord series phones. Moreover, there will be a punch-hole notch on the screen’s top-left corner to house the selfie camera.
Furthermore, the screen will accommodate the optical in-display fingerprint scanner. Under the hood, the phone will probably pack an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 900 processor. This processor will be paired with a competent Mali G68 GPU. Moreover, the MediaTek Dimensity 900 will reportedly use a 7nm process and support 5G connectivity. A 4,500mAh battery unit that supports 65W Warp Charge 65 fast charging will be powering up the entire system. For optics, the Nord CE 2 could feature a triple rear camera setup, along with a LED flash.
The rear-mounted camera island could house a 64MP OmniVision camera. In addition to that, the phone will reportedly feature an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 2MP macro lens. For selfies, the upcoming OnePlus phone will reportedly come with a 16MP shooter. Also, the Nord CE 2 is likely to be the first Nord series phone to offer a dedicated micro-SD card slot. On the downside, the phone will follow in the footsteps of its predecessor and ditch the Alert Slider.
