OnePlus Nord 2 – OnePlus has already expanded its Nord family of smartphones in 2021 with the Nord CE 5G, but rumors suggest there are a couple more devices yet to come from the company, including the OnePlus 9T.
The OnePlus Nord 2 has been officially named by the company’s CEO, Pete Lau, and we know it’s coming on 22 July. Some additional official specs have also been released, along with a fistful of rumors of what to expect. So here’s everything we know so far about the OnePlus Nord 2.
Release date and price
- 22 July 2021 reveal date confirmed
- Under £400 likely
The OnePlus Nord was announced in August 2020, so a successor was expected sometime before the end of the summer. It’s a little earlier than a year later, though, with a 22 July reveal date confirmed.
Pricing details haven’t been revealed in leaks as yet, though the OnePlus Nord started at £379 in the UK – so we would expect the Nord 2 to sit within a similar ballpark. Even if more expensive, we don’t expect it to go over the £400 mark as its starting price.
The original Nord wasn’t available in the US, with the Nord N100 and N10 5G available on that side of the pond instead. It’s not clear if the Nord 2 will go to the US or not, but there are reports of a Nord N200 device in the works too.
- Similar to the OnePlus 9
- 160 x 73.8 x 8.1mm
Based on the leaks, the OnePlus Nord 2 will take a lot of its design cues from the OnePlus 9 series. It looks like we can expect a rectangular camera housing on the rear with two prominent camera lenses and a smaller lens below, with the flash sitting alongside the smaller lens.
On the front, it appears that a punch-hole camera will be situated in the top corner of the flat display – various renders from different sources corroborate this design. An alert slider seems to be present like most OnePlus devices (except for the OnePlus Nord CE 5G).
We wouldn’t expect an official IP water and dust resistance for the OnePlus Nord 2, and we’re expecting a plastic frame and body – or at least a plastic rear even if the frame is metal like the OnePlus 9.
- 6.43-inch AMOLED panel
- Full HD+ resolution
- 90Hz refresh rate
- HDR10+ certified
OnePlus has confirmed officially via Twitter that the Nord 2 will feature a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate.
Nord 2 comes with a 6.43 inch 90 Hz Fluid AMOLED display that swipes so smooth you’ll think your fingers are dancing ballet. And it’s HDR 10+ certified.
