It’s been a year since OnePlus entered into the “budget” category of smartphones with the OnePlus Nord. Overall, thanks to the hype that the company created on social media, Nord’s sales were pretty good. Now, it’s time for the OnePlus Nord 2 and the first leak of the device is out.
One of the popular leakers in the business, Steve H.McFly, has shared the OnePlus Nord 2’s 5K render, which shows off the front and the back designs of the device.
OnePlus Nord 2 Renders: Better Design?
The OnePlus Nord 2 looks like a mini OnePlus 9 with a triple camera set up at the back and a punch-hole display at the front which is supposed to be an AMOLED panel. The camera bump is strikingly similar to OnePlus 9’s.
As for the buttons, the OnePlus Nord 2 sketch covered in this article showcased three buttons – Volume rockers, Power button, and OnePlus’ Iconic Alert Slider, all of which are present in this render.
According to folks at OnLeaks, Nord 2 will be rocking the Dimensity 1200 SoC, a 5G chipset from Mediatek. This will make Nord 2 the first device from OnePlus to be powered by a Mediatek SoC. This might disappoint many fans since Mediatek isn’t the most preferred chipset maker in the business. However, the SoC has shown incredible results in benchmarks.
The phone is rumored to pack a 6.43-inch 90Hz AMOLED display, 4500mAh battery with Warp Charge technology, and a 50MP+8MP+2MP camera set up.
OnePlus merged into OPPO to create a bigger Chinese mobile manufacturing image, which also upset many fans. This also raises questions about if OxygenOS will be used in future OnePlus devices. OnePlus phones in China have shifted from Hydrogen OS (Essentially OxygenOS without Google apps for China) to OPPO’s Color OS.
