Everything About OnePlus Nord CE 5G
Last year we saw OnePlus introduced a new brand called Nord. Under the Nord brand, OnePlus launches budget phones like the original Oneplus Nord, OnePlus Nord N10 and N100. last year when OnePlus unveiled their budget-friendly OnePlus No0rd, it got a lot of market attention and is still doing well in the sales figures. Since every OEM has a launch cycle every year, Oneplus also follows it and now the brand is planning to launch the next iteration of the phone. So here is everything about the OnePlus Nord CE 5G that is going to launch in the coming week.
Design and Features of OnePlus Nord CE 5G
The upcoming OnePlus Nord CE 5G will directly be competing with Samsung’s Galaxy A series devices which happens to be very good this year since it provides an IP rating as well. Coming to the OnePlus Nord CE specifications the phone is said to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 750 5G chipset coupled with 6 or 8 GB of RAM. The storage option should be between 64,128 and 256 GB of UFS 2.1. The phone will have a 6.43 inch FHD+ AMOLED display featuring the same 90Hz of high refresh rate as the original OnePlus Nord. The screen will also be having the in-display optical fingerprint scanner in a typical Oneplus fashion.
The phone will however be completely built on a plastic frame and will be 7.99 mm thick. It will also be having a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Powering the phone will be a 4500 mAh of battery which can be recharged by the fast warp charge 30T. The OnePlus Nord CE will be having a 64 MP triple rear camera setup. At the front, we can see a 16 MP of selfie camera in a punch-hole design.
One key feature that OnePlus has omitted from the OnePlus Nord CE is the alert slider, it doesn’t have the very infamous alert slider which can be a deal-breaker for many. However, it isn’t confirmed yet, but as per the leaks, we can say that OnePlus has done some cost-cutting.
OnePlus Nord CE 5G will be running Oxygen OS 11 based on Android 11 out of the box and should receive two major updates at least. The phone supports dual nano sim and has 5G bands as well. It is yet to be discovered which 5G bands are available on OnePlus Nord CE, since the past OnePlus phones even the flagship OnePlus 9 pro have had only 2 5G bands. Whereas a typical modern 5G phone like iPhone 12 and Galaxy S21 has around 15 5G bands including mmWave.
