OnePlus Nord CE 5G name confirmed
The phone is expected to launch at the OnePlus Summer Launch event, the details of which are still kept undercover.

The Nord 2 is expected to be based on the upcoming Realme X7 Max 5G, the details of which are already out on social media. The Nord 2 is expected to use the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chip, which is a step up from the Snapdragon 765G chip of the previous model. This chip alone could drive prices of the Nord 2 upwards of Rs 30,000, given that this is MediaTek’s flagship chipset.
Previous speculations have also pointed out at a 120Hz AMOLED display and a 64-megapixel quad rear camera setup. And of course, you can expect to see OnePlus’ OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11 booting on the Nord 2.
Speculations have suggested that the Nord CE 5G is the successor to the Nord N10 from last year. Hence, this could be a phone that OnePlus can use to challenge the likes of affordable 5G smartphones such as the Moto G 5G, Xiaomi Mi 10i, and Realme X7 5G. The choice of processor is still unknown but our guesses are on a MediaTek Dimensity chip.
