OnePlus Nord CE 5G is set to launch on June 10 in India alongside the OnePus U1 series 4K LED TVs during the company’s upcoming Summer Launch Event. The OnePlus Nord CE (Core Edition) is a follow-up to the original OnePlus Nord that was launched in July last year. While OnePlus is yet to reveal more details about the Nord CE, a new report hints are some of the key specifications of the upcoming phone.
Yesterday, OnePlus officially teased two upcoming devices in their affordable Nord lineup. Today, some of the specs for one of those phones, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G, have been leaked, including the processor, camera, and display. In their teaser, OnePlus explained that the Nord CE 5G — with “CE” being short for “Core Edition” — was built to distill the first Nord down to its core elements and add more features, while staying at a lower retail price. While the phone itself isn’t set to debut until June 10, at the company’s “Summer Launch Event,” the folks at Android Central have learned some of the specs for the OnePlus Nord CE 5G.
OnePlus Nord CE 5G Specifications
As per a report by Android Central, the upcoming OnePlus Nord CE 5G is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G. This is the same chip we have seen on the most recent Samsung Galaxy M42 5G and the Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G.
Much of the original Nord’s DNA will still be present in the CE, as OnePlus is reportedly including a similar (or perhaps the same) 6.43-inch, 90hz refresh, AMOLED display. This should make for the most affordable OnePlus Nord phone with an AMOLED display.
In the camera department, the Nord CE 5G will have a 64MP main camera and two secondary cameras. The front-facing camera may be a 16MP shooter. Though the report doesn’t specify the other two cameras’ specifics, the OnePlus Nord had quad cameras with a 48MP main + 8MP ultrawide + 5MP depth + 2MP macro. The first-gen Nord has dual selfie cameras (32MP + 8MP)
Finally, the report notes that the OnePlus Nord CE 5G will feature a design like that of the OnePlus 9 series, so we can expect to see a rectangular triple camera setup on the upper left side of the rear panel.
From the specs that have leaked so far, it seems OnePlus has an interesting and opinionated vision for the affordable phone. Clearly they’re prioritizing the phone’s look and its cameras over the raw performance.
