According to the publication, the OnePlus Nord 2 will feature a 6.43-inch AMOLED display that offers Full HD+ resolution, a 90Hz refresh rate, and an in-screen fingerprint scanner. For selfies, it will feature the same 32-megapixel front that was made available on the original Nord.

The original Nord has a pill-shaped cutout on the screen, which houses a 32-megapixel + 8-megapixel dual selfie camera system. The new leak does not mention whether the OnePlus Nord 2 will feature two front-facing cameras as well. Its rear camera system is expected to house a 50-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

The Snapdragon 765G chipset fueled the older model, whereas the more powerful Dimensity 1200 chip is expected to power the Nord 2. It is likely to feature a 4,500mAh battery instead of the 4,115mAh battery, which fueled the predecessor model. The handset is expected to arrive in two variants such as 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and 12GB RAM + 256GB storage.

Tipster Digital Chat Station had claimed earlier this week that the Nord 2 will sport the Sony IMX766 lens as the primary camera. He further said Nord 2’s rear camera module will be similar to the OnePlus 9 Pro (review), but the fourth lens placed in the lower-right position will be swapped with an LED flash.

OnePlus Nord 2 price in India (expected)

The OnePlus Nord 2 is likely to be priced around RMB 2,000 (~Rs 22,900). Its launch timeframe was inadvertently revealed by OnePlus recently through a European promo campaign. The promo mentioned that owners of select handsets including the Nord 2 will be able to take advantage of the offer until September 30th. This indicates that the Nord 2 may debut in Q3 this year.
