This is a notable sign that the phone will be going official in the country soon. Hawk-eyed leaker Mukul Sharma was the first person to discover the listing. Sharma even shared a screenshot of the listing on his Twitter account. The much-awaited OnePlus Nord CE successor is reportedly codenamed, Ivan. Moreover, the phone was spotted on the BIS certification website carrying model number IV2201.
Specifications & Features (Expected)
If rumors making the rounds online prove to be true, the OnePlus Nord 2 CE will sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that offers a refresh rate of 90Hz. Moreover, the screen is likely to deliver a Full HD+ resolution. Under the hood, the phone will reportedly pack a MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC that is built on a 7nm process. Aside from that, the phone comes with a Mali G68 GPU. For the uninitiated, the Oppo Reno7 SE uses the same processor.
Furthermore, the Nord 2 CE will probably ship with 12GB of RAM. The phone is likely to run Android 12 OS with OxygenOS 12 on top. Moreover, a report from Gadgets360 suggests that the phone will offer up to 256GB of onboard storage. The phone could come with a 4,500mAh battery that supports 65W Warp Charge 65 fast charging. The leaked renders hint at a triple camera setup. This includes a 64MP OmniVision camera, a 2MP macro camera, and an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor.
On the downside, the Nord 2 CE will get rid of the company’s trademark alert slider. Furthermore, it will be the first phone from OnePlus that features a dedicated micro-SD card slot. The phone will probably see the light of the day in early 2022, carrying a price tag of around INR 24,000 or INR 28,000 in India.
