OnePlus Nord 2: News, leaks, release date, specs, and rumors!

by Jeremy

The OnePlus Nord debuted too much fanfare last year, and it turned into a bestseller for the company. OnePlus is all set to launch the OnePlus Nord 2 on July 22, and the device will have a lot of upgrades that differentiate it from the first-gen Nord. OnePlus also released the Nord CE 5G in India and European countries earlier this year. That device offered similar hardware as the Nord at a slightly more affordable price point. The Nord 2, however, is packed with new hardware — including a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 and new camera modules — so if you’re in the market for a mid-range phone, there is a lot to like. Here’s what you need to know about the Nord 2 and when you’ll be able to get your hands on the mid-range phone.OnePlus

OnePlus Nord N10 5G

You don’t have to pay more for 5G

The Nord N10 5G lets you make the switch to 5G on a budget. It has a Snapdragon 690 chipset with 5G connectivity, a large battery with 30W fast charging, a 64MP camera at the back, and a 90Hz screen that makes it a delight to use.

OnePlus Nord 2: Release date

The OnePlus Nord was unveiled on July 21, 2020, and OnePlus is launching the Nord 2 precisely a year later. The phone will be unveiled on July 22, with availability kicking off shortly after that. We haven’t seen OnePlus being affected by the chip shortage, so there should be adequate Nord 2 at launch to meet the demand.

OnePlus Nord 2: Where will it be available?

The original Nord debuted in select markets worldwide, and while it was available in India and the EU, it didn’t make its way to North America. OnePlus instead turned to the budget-focused Nord N10 5G and N100 in the U.S., the same story with the Nord 2. The Nord N10 is one of the best cheap Android phones available in the U.S., but having said that, customers in the country will miss out on the Nord numbered series.

The Nord 2 is slated to launch in India, the EU, and other global markets where OnePlus does business, so like the regular Nord, it will be available in all regions outside of North America. OnePlus has confirmed that the only devices that will debut in the Nord series in North America are the entry-level Nord N devices, with the manufacturer focusing on the carrier play in the region. As for what it will cost, the Nord 2 will likely debut for $100 more than the regular Nord, considering the hardware on offer. As a refresher, here’s how much the Nord debuted at last year:
