OnePlus Nord 2
OnePlus entered the affordable premium segment in India in 2020 with its Nord series. The company launched the first Nord series smartphone in July 2020 at Rs 24,999 onwards. If sales numbers have to go by, OnePlus Nord did reasonably well in the market. Last year, OnePlus not only launched the successor to OnePlus Nord, but also a more affordable version of the phone – Nord CE. The Nord CE launched in June 2021 at Rs 22,999 onwards. Now new reports suggest that OnePlus is reportedly planning to launch the OnePlus Nord 2 CE smartphone in the coming months
OnePlus calls Nord CE, Core Edition of Nord series, the device that offers all the essential features. There were also reports that the Nord CE 2 smartphone will be called OnePlus Ivan. However, the latest Tweet from popular tipster Max Jambor suggests more predictable Nord CE 2 as the name. In his Tweet, Max has shared an image that reveals the name and launch date of the smartphone, and it also teases the camera module on the device.
As per the image, OnePlus Nord 2 CE 5G smartphone will be launched on February 11. Similar date was also predicted by several other tipsters previously. However, the date seems too early considering that the company just launched the OnePlus 9RT in India.
As of now, OnePlus has not shared any official information about the rumoured device but it is expected to be one of the most affordable 5G smartphones from OnePlus. According to previous reports, the smartphone will also be available in the Indian market soon as it was spotted on the BIS certification website.
