OnePlus Nord 2 CE is expected to be priced in the same price bracket as its predecessor. The phone will reportedly be priced at Rs 28,000.
Earlier, leaked renders of the device show that the new OnePlus device looks similar to the Oppo Reno 7. The new device could be a re-branded version of the Oppo Reno 7. However, OnePlus might still introduce some changes to the device. Both devices are expected to be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset. This also falls in line with the leaks about the OnePlus Nord 2 CE. If the latest leak is to be believed, the phones will get the same Mali G68 MC4 GPU.
The Oppo Reno 7 and the OnePlus Nord 2 CE get a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a FullHD+ resolution. The display will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The battery unit will also be the same at 4500 mAh. However, the charging speed may not be the same.
Coming to the differences between the devices, the OnePlus Nord 2 CE is expected to get 65W charging speed instead of 33W on the Reno 7. The OnePlus device will also feature a 3.5mm headphone jack which is not present on the Reno 7.
One of the biggest differences between the two phones is the camera setup. While the camera island on the rear panel look identical for both devices, the OnePlus Nord 2 CE will get a better 64MP primary lens, in comparison to the 48MP on the Oppo Reno 7. The second camera in the triple-lens setup is also different. Instead of the 2MP macro lens of the Oppo Reno 7, the OnePlus Nord 2 CE is expected to feature an 8MP ultra-wide lens.
