What OnePlus Nord 2 CE will look like and when it arrives

The OnePlus Nord 2 CE, the Chinese company's next mid-range device, will be arriving soon: here's when and what it will look like according to the latest information

OnePlus Nord 2 CE is one of the many smartphones that will be released in the next two months. The presentations will be several, accomplices two events such as CES and Mobile World Congress 2022 that traditionally offer an important stage to consumer electronics manufacturers, among which there will also be OnePlus.

The Chinese company will probably take advantage of the visibility of CES 2021 to launch the OnePlus 10 range, but first it will be time to remove the veils from the mid-range OnePlus Nord 2 CE, which should be a slightly less powerful (but also cheaper) version of OnePlus Nord 2. And from the product from which it derives will inherit a choice, that of turning to MediaTek for the chip: Nord 2 CE in fact, according to the latest rumors, will have a Dimensity 900 instead of an equivalent chip from Qualcomm, reversing the trend compared to its predecessor. It will arrive with several improvements: here's what according to the latest rumors.

OnePlus Nord 2 CE, what it will look like

According to rumors OnePlus Nord 2 CE will have the Dimensity 900, a chip made by MediaTek that represents a step up from the one adopted on the predecessor, the Snapdragon 750G. As a result, the mid-range OnePlus should have better performance, guaranteed by the new Cortex-A78 cores from Arm and especially the Mali-G78 GPU that, to be clear, is used by the Galaxy S21 range and the recent Google Pixel 6.

As for the screen, OnePlus Nord 2 CE will have a 6.4-inch diagonal OLED panel with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, with 6 GB of RAM (but some say that could be offered even 12 GB on the best equipped variant) and 128 or 256 GB of storage, while it is not yet known if there will be the possibility of expansion via microSD: the current smartphone does not give this opportunity.

The rumors tell of a camera group almost unchanged from the current smartphone, at least looking at the numbers not being able to get into the merits of photographic quality. OnePlus Nord 2 CE will have a 64-megapixel main camera and two others, an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle and, probably, a 2-megapixel macro for photos of subjects very close to the smartphone. On the front surface there will instead be a 16-megapixel selfie camera.

Important improvements instead with regard to charging, which to hear the rumor will go from the current 30 watts to 65 watts of OnePlus Nord 2 CE. You will be able to recover autonomy then more than twice as fast, which will come in very handy on days when the 4,500 mAh battery that will be integrated in the factory will be "tight". Small side note, which will not make OnePlus fans happy: like its predecessor, even OnePlus Nord 2 CE will not have the physical selector on the chassis of the modes of use.
