Previously, OnePlus has been copying Apple’s strategy – it was designing only premium smartphones. But the market changes and no strategy can work effectively forever. As a result, not only OnePlus but also Apple revised their approaches and now both are offering mid-range smartphones. OnePlus entered this niche with the much-discussed Nord series. And it’s hard to believe but there are already many models from this line. However, this is a continuous process and we are waiting for new models. Today, @OnLeaks exposed the core parameter information of the new OnePlus Nord 2 machine. Also, he revealed the launch date – July.

OnePlus Nord 2 Key Features
It turns out that our protagonist will use a 6.43-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen. The latter adopts a punch-hole design. The selfie camera opening is in the upper left corner. This screen also supports a 90Hz refresh rate and has a fingerprint scanner under it.
Inside, the OnePlus Nord 2 will carry the Dimensity 1200. By the way, at the moment, it is the strongest chip in the MediaTek camp.
The Dimensity 1200 adopts a 6nm process technology and a 1+3+4 flagship three-cluster architecture design. Compared with the previous generation CPU performance, energy efficiency is improved by 25%, GPU performance is improved by 13%, and AI performance is improved by 12.5%.
However, currently there are myriads of models with this chip on the market. From market feedback, consumers like the performance it provides. Especially, it is good in terms of task handling and good battery life.
Well, this chip will be accompanied by various storage and memory options such as 8GB+128GB and 12GB+256GB.
OnePlus smartphones have always been popular for their strong imaging capabilities. That’s why no matter what a smartphone the company is going to release, it will be associated with a good camera phone. In this sense, the upcoming OnePlus Nord 2 seems to have no reasons to worry. According the previously leaked information, it will sport a three-camera solution that includes a 50MP main camera, an 8MP ultra wide angle lens and a 2MP macro webcam. By the way, the main camera is the Sony IMX766 CMOS with a 50MP resolution and a 1/1.56-inch outsole.
This handset has already managed to appear on the company’s website, which once again confirms the rumors that OnePlus has canceled the OnePlus SE and switched to the OnePlus Nord 2. But we should also mention that this handset will debut with another mid-ranger (or a low-end model) called the OnePlus Nord CE 5G.
