OnePlus is back with another offering in the mid-range segment. The company has already announced that the OnePlus Nord 2 will release in India on July 22nd. It is the second device of the Nord series by the company this year after the OnePlus Nord CE 5G.
However, as always the new OnePlus Nord smartphone has been leaked on the internet before the launch event. We now know the specifications, design, and even the official renders are out now. So, if you are interested in the OnePlus Nord 2 5G smartphone, this is everything we know so far.
OnePlus Nord 2 5G Specifications
OnePlus has confirmed that the Nord 2 will come with a 6.43-inch sAMOLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support. There is no word on the display resolution but we expect it to be a full HD+ display. The company has also revealed that the smartphone will feature the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 AI chipset. The chipset is exclusive to the smartphone and will offer additional AI features over the standard MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC.
OnePlus recently announced its merger with OPPO. As a result, OnePlus is now a sub-brand of OPPO. The company is also said to have merged the Oxygen OS’s codebase with OPPO’s Color OS. OnePlus explained that this merger will not affect the end-user but will allow the company to provide faster and regular updates for its devices. The company has recently announced three years of Android updates for its devices.
The design of the smartphone is similar to the OnePlus 9 series devices. The leaked renders show the triple camera setup at the back, the alert-slider, and the left-aligned selfie cut-out in the display. The Nord 2 sports a glass back with a plastic frame. The device will be available in Grey, Blue, Green, and Red color variants.
In terms of optics, the OnePlus Nord 2 will sport a triple camera setup at the back with a 50MP Sony IMX7666 primary sensor along with an 8MP ultra-wide, and 2MP mono camera. The 50MP sensor will come with Optical Image Stabilization support. At the front, there is a 32MP (Sony IMX615 sensor) selfie camera with features like AI resolution boost, AI color boost, AI HDR remapping.
OnePlus has used the same sensor in the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. The company is pitching improved software for better camera outcomes. The company promises better low-light photography with Nightscape Ultra. AI Photo Enhancement will allow you to take better photos by automatically adjusting camera settings and scene recognition.
