OnePlus Nord 2 specs and features
So far, OnePlus has only revealed details regarding the screen size, processor, and Android version of the upcoming OnePlus Nord 2. As per the earlier reports, the device will be offering full HD+ resolution, just like its predecessor. The smartphone could be offered in two RAM and storage configurations. The most affordable variant of the device will have 8GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. The higher-end version of the upcoming Nord will have a whopping 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. In terms of security, the smartphone will be featuring a fingerprint sensor that will be placed under the screen.
The rumour mill suggests that the OnePlus Nord 2 will be offering three cameras as compared to a quad-camera module present on the original Nord. The new Nord is said to offer a 50-megapixel primary camera on the back, which will be accompanied by an 8-megapixel secondary sensor and a 2-megapixel third lens. Unlike the OnePlus Nord, the OnePlus Nord 2’s LED flash unit will be placed inside the same camera module as the other sensors on the back, which will offer a slightly different design than the predecessor.
As for the other features, the OnePlus Nord 2 will be offering a 32-megapixel camera on the front, which will be placed inside the hole in the top-left corner. The new Nord will be a mid-range 5G offering with a beefy 4,500mAh battery that could either support 30W or 65W fast charging, suggests the leaks.
OnePlus Nord 2’s expected price in India
According to the reports, the OnePlus Nord 2 will be available at the starting price of around Rs 30,000 for the variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. To compare, the original Nord’s base variant was launched in India for Rs 24,999. A hike of Rs 5,000 in the base variant seems reasonable for all the upgrades the new Nord is bringing. We will have more details in the near future, so stay tuned.
